Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Sometimes a painting experience is over the top! My latest Blue Ridge painting looked so good in the second stage that I was worried I would lose the strong effect in the next phase. Was I ever wrong! I am achieving the most complex painting that I have ever done and I will be shoving any impediment to work to get to it tomorrow.
I don’t think extreme attention to detail necessarily makes for a successful painting. There will always be so much more to painting than trying to represent what I see that can’t really be represented due to the constant change of light and shade throughout the day. That is why I work from a photograph that I took of a specific moment that I want to embellish.
I put myself into the work with decisions about color and texture that are sometimes in the photograph and sometimes my reaction to the paint as it is applied to the surface.
Anyway, back to detail. I do like to get as much detail as possible in these atmospheric landscapes because of the beautiful colors that occur as I work on tricky areas. It is not really about the detail. It is about the color and I am getting more color than ever before!
Looking forward to tomorrow’s session.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler
I doubt that everyone remembers the Pet Rock Craze from the seventies. The guy that came up with this crazy pet idea walked away with 15 million for it. The rocks came in boxes with air holes. Anyway, it was quite an amazing marketing trend that didn’t last long.
Well the other day I was going back to work on all my computer chores and Clyde said have fun.
I jokingly said I have a lot of fun working on the computer but I’m not sure the computer is happy about it.
I have seen pet rocks have more fun than computers.
I’m sure if a computer could talk it would agree!
