When I go into my studio I am always reminded of a famous Bette Davis line. “What a dump!” I have two choices when I go in there. I can work on a painting or I can clean up. Guest which choice wins most of the time?
I am going to show a number of black and white nude drawings that I decided to re-do in color. I am pleased with both versions. In this case, I like the color version better. The shadow in this drawing makes it for me. The dramatic spacing and light are greatly enhanced by the elongated shadow.
The model’s pose is exuberance itself, hence the title. We should all celebrate! All anyone really has is a limited amount of time and each day is precious!

My husband and I are sometimes baffled by computers. I have used the Add Media button and added Youtubes before and the whole Youtube comes up on my post. Now I just get the link. Yesterday I had Clyde try to figure it out and gave up. Maybe I will get it to work again sometime.
Meanwhile, here is my latest Youtube on my Kendall Expressions! Please click on it!
Here is the latest on the wonderful Blue Ridge Discovery Center Group!

I am working on a painting of the beautiful Cascades Falls in Giles County. This gorgeous setting is part of the Jefferson National Forest and I have hiked up to the falls and swam in the pool of water many times. The painting will be done soon and I think I will ask my husband to hike up there with me again soon! Evening River Scene Original 30″x40″ Oil Painting $2425
I have decided to get back into making Youtubes. Since I am an amateur pianist I was using my own music but I don’t have time for that so I am adding selections on Youtube. There are so many beautiful pieces to choose from and I am looking forward to showing more and more of my work in that format! Here is one of my older ones that I think turned out very well!
Anybody know what I am doing wrong? In earlier posts I have copied the code and the Youtube shows up. Why am I only getting the code now?
Yesterday I thought I had finished posting my black and white nude drawings but today I found two more in my portfolio. I thought I had put these up but they aren’t in any posts. These two have an exceptionally delicate quality about them.
The first one is one of my few line drawings. There is some tone but the work exists in a linear format. I am such a colorist that when I work in neutral tones I always want to use a wide range of greys because they are color to me. In this one the line works beautifully to express the essence of a beautiful form.

In Waiting in the Light the model seems to appear out of a puff of smoke for a somewhat mystical look. I am very proud of the sensuous look of this charcoal drawing. As I have said before, charcoal is my favorite drawing medium.
Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler
I can not believe the aggravation I have had today with my computer! I have attempted a lot of tasks it does without complaint every day. Today it is on vacation or just being mean to me. I am reminded of what my husband says.
I have posted it before but it bears repeating. Instead of fighting with a machine, open the window and let gravity do the work! I am really tempted to do just that!
