Just a short blog before I head home to visit family for a funeral.  I am going to go off the grid for a few days as we mourn our wonderful mother. I have posted two beach paintings in her honor as I know she loved the shore, especially the North Carolina shore.  Cheers to everyone in this cold weather.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Nothing from the Word Man today but I did see something on Facebook that I knew he would like.  He has a business page but is too much of a curmudgeon to have a personal page.  The joke was, I don’t think Facebook has taught the lame to walk but it has caused  the dumb to speak.  No offense to anyone that loves Facebook!  Just thought it was a good funnie!

The patron for my latest commission came by yesterday and was very pleased with the painting and also with many of my other paintings.  He is interested in bringing his wife by and selecting others.  He also has some reverse glass paintings that he would like me to restore.  Great visit with a great patron!  He brought a friend that works with him in his business and he had many compliments on my work! I don’t have the painting on my website for prints yet but it will be there soon.  I am officially cheered up and looking forward to Line Dance class today!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

The other day I had so much to do that I just didn’t want to get the evening dishes done.  I had already done dishes earlier and many other things so I just stared at them.  I told Clyde that even though it was freezing outside he would have to put up with a few minutes of cold while I heaved the dishes out the front door. 

A cat may try to lick one and get it’s tongue stuck. 

That is a chance I will have to take.  Maybe I will hit a few of those ground hogs that converge on our property. 

Not a chance. They are hibernating under the shed next door and laughing about the times they have eaten all our apples. 

Well, put on your sweater because here I go!  The dishes will fly!

I am in a very bad mood today.  Most of the time I am an up person which is contrary to what many people think about artists, but today I am, as Clyde would say, lower than a snake’s belly.  We have to deal with a decades old problem that can be awful at times and today is one of those days.  I am trying to cheer up but it is difficult. 

We have been working for months on a new strategy to see if there is help for this problem but the latest effort did not work out.  Oh well.  We are well.  We have a roof over our heads and do not want for food or material things so I will cheer up.  We all get down at times.  I am glad that I don’t get down that much.

Nothing amusing today.  It is hard to laugh when you are discouraged but I am sure I will be laughing soon! 

Clyde is still out studying wildlife in this bitter cold weather and I am working away. 

I will always agree with my Dad that it is important to keep busy, especially when you are not in a good mood so cheers to myself!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I have always been fascinated by marine life, especially sharks, so I was pleased to see footage of the recently discovered huge twenty foot white shark.  Many people don’t know that most species of sharks are not interested in eating people but they sometimes take exploratory bites and then spit the person out.  Clyde was amazed that in the footage people were swimming rather near the shark. 

That shark certainly isn’t Jaws. 

Why are they swimming that near the shark? 

I don’t know but the shark doesn’t seem to be interested in them. 

They just fed it an elephant.  That’s why. 

Ha ha.  I doubt that very much.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is About done with Commission and How do you think you drink it?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

Well, I have learned to be more careful with commissions with letters.  I thought the garage that was also owned by the Roanoke family that owned the store I made a painting of was  named after them.  In the photograph I could just make out 9th Street Garage but I thought that was the name it is today. 

Whoops!  Oh well, I covered over their name and corrected the sign.  The painting would be gone if it were not for that error.  Live and learn!  Next time I will make sure I have it right before I do brush lettering which is very hard especially on such a small scale.  Anyway, I am looking forward to starting some new paintings!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before Clyde read the encyclopedias when he was young and I don’t think he has forgotten much if any of what he read so when two people were talking about moon shine on TV he was, of course, correcting them.  Here is how the conversation went.

TV moderators – Most people do not know that moon shine originated in Pennsylvania! 

Clyde – Scotland. 

After a number of other comments one of the moderators asked this.  What I want to know is how do you drink moon shine? 

Clyde’s exasperated response – Shove it up your nostrils.  How do you think you drink it? 

Good thing he was not really part of the conversation.

Not in the best mood today.  Usually Mondays are like any other day to me since I haven’t figured out how to stop working all the time.  I can’t even watch TV without doing something with my hands.  I don’t really care much about my nails but the cuticles sure do want to cover them so I usually try pushing them back and I always do my home yoga to TV. 

Anyway, it sure is bleak and cold out there and I have too much to do.  I finished my current commission and will put it in the frame when it is completely dry so that is something to cheer about but I can’t seem to get a cheer going to day.  Oh well, complaining never gets any one any where.  Someone will always complain louder so I need to cheer up and get back to work.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde does a lot of channel surfing and many times when I come into the room he doesn’t know what he is watching. Yesterday when I entered the room there was a big hippopotamus on the screen. 

What are you watching? 

A self portrait. 

How in the world are you like a hippopotamus? 

Mean and grouchy. 

Time to go back to the studio.  Nothing weird in there, except my artwork.
