Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Did not Throw Paint Brushes around the Room…

Yesterday, as I was getting aggravated over my current painting that seemed to be working really well the day before yesterday, I thought about how paintings can be so ornery.  Of course, before throwing brushes around the room I remembered what I always say about how if it were easy, I wouldn’t do it.  It would be boring.

Anyway, the painting must have heard me because  it got right back on track after I was thinking about it.  It was a value problem and now I am confident I will get to the end and be mostly happy about it.  The next one will always be better.  That carrot will always be a little out of reach but most of them age so well.  Just have to leave it alone for a while and start another.

I am pleased to sell prints of  Blue Ridge Meadow  to a great Virginia patron!  This time the prints are on pillows.  It is great to think of my paintings on a sofa for everyone to see.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell Prints of Bear Beauty…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, today’s painting session was an arm wrestler but it turned out well. I violated one of my own rules that I don’t think will ever change.  When I first started painting in oils I didn’t think the cost of paint was that bad. I hardly used any and my paintings were done in very thin layers. That was a long time ago and now I work in my own take on the impasto method with a brush that requires a lot of expensive paint. 

When I remember I have to practically put it on with a spoon, all goes well and I doesn’t seem like a huge expense. When I don’t use a lot, I end up having to start over and the sum total is much more expensive than if I just remember that rule.  Rules are meant to be broken so that is why I keep trying to go backwards but it looks as if this rule is here to stay – at least for now. 

Anyway,  I am glad to sell some prints of Bear Beauty, one of my Kendall Expressions series.  This time the sale is of greeting cards to a great Minnesota patron. I have included others from that series below.   My work is on just about anything and the talented, beautiful actress Morgan Fairchild recently  bought one of my favorite florals on a t-shirt and tweeted herself with it on!  Love it! She has purchased three original wildflower paintings and a number of prints on various items, including face masks.

I am so tired.  I am doing my part for the election which makes it even harder to get all my computer work done.  Oh well.  I’m sure there are many that have it much harder than me during this awful pandemic which seems to be getting worse. 

Stay safe!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back to the Mountains and Trekking Through the Tulips…

Not much to say today.  It is a beautiful day outside but I have too much to do inside. Oh well.  I did work on my latest Blue Ridge painting and already took quite a detour in my approach.  Nothing new about that. 

Sometimes I like to sort of revert to older methods for handling the paint and then come right back to where I am right now in my technique.  Always worth a try but I should know by now I can’t go backwards, only forwards. 

Anyway, I finally finished my latest Garden Floral and am pleased with the vibrant look and intense surface.  Check it out below!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I’m sure I have mentioned that Clyde likes Star Trek.  There are a lot of Science Fiction books and movies he likes better but he usually checks out the first and second series that come on every night. If it is one he has seen too many times that remote will click it right off. 

Last night the original series started with some kind of cube and anxious officers staring at it. 

What is it? 

They always have some sort of crazy problem. 

Well, what do you expect?  It isn’t Trekking Through the Tulips. 

What about the one with the spores that even got Spock to smile?  Okay, I stand corrected but I’ll bet you can’t come up with another one. 

How about the one with all the tribbles. 

Okay, I give up.  All those episodes were problems for the enterprise but they were sort of like trekking through the space tulips.

I think I will go look for a movie on Hoopla.

Blue Ridge Parkway is Still Learning the Ropes and More Troops on the Way…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I really am behind the eight ball today but that is nothing new.  Still not happy about the WordPress changes and will use the classic version until I have time to learn the new format.  I know I don’t have a computer problem every day but sometimes it seems that way.  Another day another computer problem is my motto even though that isn’t completely true.  

I think I am doing better than I used to in regards to getting  things right. That is probably because I have spent so much time on this thing that I am beginning to learn the ropes.  I probably used two sayings that aren’t used any more but I am not sure if that is true. “Behind the Eight Ball” and “learn the ropes”.  If they aren’t used anymore then that just shows how old I am . 

Oh well.  Time doesn’t stand still for any of us.  I have my board prepared for my next painting that I am really excited about.  I am hoping to combine a number of things I have learned from my Demo Youtubes in an oil painting of a Blue Ridge overlook.  I have other obligations today  but Thursday I will begin it for sure!  Please check out this week’s short Youtube on various oil paintings and have a great day!  It is beautiful here in Virginia today.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Love my evening dishwasher.  Now that Clyde has retired he does the supper dishes and I do the morning and lunch dishes. He does a good job and I noticed he is starting to do what my Mom and I do. 

If he sees any dishes he can wash before the meal is served he does them.  Relatives used to make fun of my Mom for that. One relative teased her and said she does the dishes before she eats. 

Well, it does help a lot to clean some pots and dishes that were used to mix things. 

Clyde says he is trying to get them done before more troops arrive.  Isn’t that the truth!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Very Aggravated with this New Format and Pleased to Sell a Print of Wildflower Mist…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I guess WordPress has changed their format which is probably helpful to many but it is always a problem for me.  I get used to one way of doing things and then it is different. I hate to be a stick in the mud, but I wish they would not change site formats. 

I am looking forward to my next painting which will be a Blue Ridge landscape which is my main work.  This time it will be based on a location with some improvisations in the look of the overlook and the sky.

Hope everyone is well and staying as safe as possible.

 

Well I can’t figure out a thing in this new format.  I thought I had pressed classic editor but I guess I didn’t.  The new one kept asking me if I wanted to stay on the page when I was typing something.   Arggh! Now I am back to classic so I can get things done.  I thought I would never get used to the Wix format but I am getting better at it so I am sure I will get used to this. 

I am using the classic editor but weird things keep happening so I may have to claim victory and retreat before I pull my hair out. 

I HAVE HAD ENOUGH COMPUTER AGGRAVATION FOR ONE DAY.

Anyway, I am glad to sell a print of Wildflower Mist to a great Georgia patron!  This one will be in a nursery.  How great to think of a baby waking up to one of my paintings!
