Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!


I started a new lake painting today and it was quite a different experience. I don’t know if this pandemic has me down or I just wanted to try a different approach to the first layer, but it really is wild.  I am hoping to get a more complicated system in color with this one from the start and it really is colorful right now. 

It was not fun.  As I have mentioned before a lot of artists talk about the first layer as fun and then it gets difficult.  My first layer usually is fun, so this is definitely a different type of session for me. 

I will see what happens next!  Painting keeps me going. 

Be sure to check out my latest video above!  I now have over 900 followers!  Lots of great comments.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I snack a lot, especially after supper.  Last night I couldn’t decide what I wanted. 

I like to complain about these things to Clyde because he usually has a goofy answer for me and, as usual, he did not disappoint. 

I can’t decide.  I have carrot cake, brownies, and cookies. 

Eat all of them.

All of them? You mean I should smash the brownie into the carrot cake and put a cookie on top?

Sure, but on top of that, add some raisins and call it a healthy snack. 

Yeah, right. I think my scale will disagree with you if I have that kind of healthy snack. 

I think I will get some popcorn – no butter.

    • That sounds great! I do love brownies and carrot cake and carrots are good for you! A friend once told me chocolate chip cookies are one of the three food groups. He didn’t say which one but I will take his word for it.
