Kendall Kessler is Pleased with Progress on Latest Commission


Well, my latest commission is coming along but it has been a little challenging. I sent a first layer file that the patron was very happy with but then I veered off into a slightly different direction. He made it clear that he wanted me to paint a seascape that I would like to have on my wall. He didn’t want me to change the way I paint. That is always great to hear but kind of difficult to follow when painting for someone else. I can’t help but consider the one he purchased and sort of following that one. I am back on path now and pleased with the progress. Check out the first layer below and my latest Youtube.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell Another Print of Huckleberry Line Trail


I thought the old dog was learning new tricks on WordPress today when I lost the whole post. I decided to use the copy feature so I would already have the blocks up and not have to add each one. Well, when I tried to delete the painting so I could put up a different one, the whole post vanished.

Anyway I am pleased to sell another print of Huckleberry Line Trail Pond to a great Virginia patron! This is such a special painting for me. I don’t know if I have mentioned the story behind this painting but I am going to mention it again.

When my husband and I were first married, every Sunday afternoon we walked down Huckleberry Line Trail which was right near our apartment. The trail went to the VA Tech airport and there was a rain pond that we would sit by and just bird watch and listen to the various insects. It was always such a nice outing and the pond is no longer there so I am glad I painted it.

This time I am going to leave the painting up from the last post and add Huckleberry Line Trail Rain Pond and see if I can finish this without getting kicked off. Check out my latest painting demo video, the one from last Thursday,the painting from the last post and Huckleberry Line Trail Rain Pond. After I hit the publish button I am getting away from the computer. It is in danger of being chucked out the window and I don’t want to have to buy a new one.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Plugging Along with the new WordPress Format


Well, here I am again and I think I am gaining on this new WordPress stuff. Maybe one of these days I will stop wanting the old format. Hope so. Anyway, I still haven’t started my new shore painting but that will happen soon. Lots of other things in the way right now.

I hope we can get to the shore in the future but I am still too concerned about this pandemic to think about that right now. Anyway, I added a short video yesterday on one of my oil paintings. I am uploaded twice a week now.

The first one on Monday is a painting demo and the second one is my inspiration for a painting.

Check both out the video and a favorite shore painting below and have a great weekend!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Begin a New Floral


Well, I am glad to begin a new floral and still having a hard time with the new WordPress format. Maybe it is a problem with my computer, but if I try to copy paste a paragraph from my desk top document, it is turned into sentences here, and if I want to modify it, I have to modify each sentence. So I am just going to put up some short blogs right now and hope I can get better at this. I am pleased that I have developed a sense of humor regarding computer changes and glitches. I used to get so frustrated but now I just go with the flow until the changes sink in. It is always some little thing that is holding me up.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I have been puzzling over the news on TV regarding Space flights. The cost right now is $250,000.

Space, the final frontier

Space, the final bank account

I think Clyde is right. I would never go into space regardless of the cost. I don’t even like airplanes.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell Smith Mountain Lake


Well, I am getting better at the WordPress block, but I don’t like it. I have received advice

from a number of people but I really don’t want to take the time to figure that out either.

The advice is different so I think I will just keep plugging along. I am putting this on a

document and then copy paste it on to WordPress. I do want to keep adding Youtubes but

the ones in my last blog were shoved to the right and I don’t think they have to be that way.

Oh well, I am just not that great with computers and I am so busy I don’t want to keep learning

new ways to do things.

Anyway, I am so pleased that my best selling lake painting, Smith

Mountain Lake has a permanent home! This is one of my favorite paintings. It has an inner

glow and a sensuous surface. I love boats and spent a lot of time around and in them when

I was young. Beautiful memories!

Okay. Running into more problems so I think I will quit for today.
