Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back to Sailboats and More Trojan Horse Gripes…

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!



Such a beautiful day!  Great to see so much sunshine!  I like cloudy days, too, but sometimes there are too many of them in a row. 

My latest painting is at that most difficult stage.  Is it done or not? Do I let it live the way it is or is there more to do.  If there is one thing I have learned over the years, it is how to let them live.  We artists tend to get so wrapped up in one that we don’t see what is successful about it- only the faults. 

I am going to paint some more small ones.  It is great to be able to move on faster to the next one.  Since my current painting is a sailboat sunset, I decided to post some favorite boat paintings this time. 

Love the water and will be so glad to get back to the shore next year if the pandemic is under control. 

Be sure to check out my latest St. Louis demo painting youtube above!  This is the first one that I put expressive clouds in. Always trying to do something different in these youtube demos.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before, Clyde doesn’t like computers and, in spite of their usefullness, thinks they are trojan horses that have caused a lot of harm. He is especially critical of comments on social media that used to be just idle comments among small groups in bars or parties. 

He thinks broadcasting these opinions are not helpful and contribute to a lot of disinformation that people accept as truth. 

Anyway, I was doing some online yoga when the teacher said, and now place yours arms in this twist position. 

And now pick up some rocks and throw them at the computer. 

Why would I want to damage the computer? 

Why not? Look at all the damage it has done to us. 

Okay.  Get outside to Backyardica and check out the birds. That will help!  I need to stretch.
