Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Listening to Classical Music and Under the Coat…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I have been spending so much time working on my Youtube channel that I have stopped listening to great Youtube music.  Decided today to get back to that and right now I am listening to an orchestra featuring violinist David Garrett performing a favorite Tchaikovsky Allegro Moderato opus 35.  I love all kinds of music just like I like all kinds of art but my favorite music is Classical music, especially music from the Romantic Era. 

I am pleased that I finished another Youtube today and will upload it on Monday.  I told my husband I missed swimming and thought I would go do some laps at The Aquatic Center.  NOT!!!!!  Wish I could but I think it will be quite some time before they re-open.

I think I will just dream about Pawleys Island and look forward to going there again next year.  Be sure to check out the Safe Grocery Shopping video below and have a great day! 

Also, face masks are available on my website and I have included a link under Pawleys Island Evening.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Like a lot of people right now I am taking Yoga class through Zoom classes and some Youtube classes.  Some of those teachers require enough Downward Facing Dogs to make me bark and yelp but I am getting used to it. 

The other day I couldn’t find my strap but my Zoom teacher doesn’t usually use one.  Of course, we needed one that day so I stretched apart my sweater. Hope I didn’t ruin it. 

So after class I went to the spot by my piano where I keep it and complained to Clyde that it was not there. 

Maybe it slithered under the piano. 

It can’t do that. 

How do you know? 

Because it is a lifeless instrument of torture not a live one. 

Well, I finally found it on the bed in the computer room under Clyde’s coat.  I guess it slithered under there.  LOL!

Really behind the eight ball today!  So much to do and I have hardly gotten to anything due to a long, important phone call.  It is amazing how one change in a schedule can really mess things up.  Oh well, I am still moving forward to straightening things out but the morning light is gone so no painting today.  Hope to get to my latest wildflower painting tomorrow!

Check out my latest video above and don’t forget that you can get my work on face masks now.  It is a little tricky to find them.  When you look at any of my paintings on my website, click on a selection to the right and then scroll down below the painting for more selections and it will be at the end.  I have included a link below

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I don’t really like using our cell phones that much. We prefer to communicate on the computer or in person.  In person! What’s that?  Right now it certainly doesn’t exist but we will get back to that soon, I hope. 

We both see lots of people typing away on phones with their thumbs.  That isn’t for me. I don’t like working with that tiny screen.

Clyde says they are going to get carpal tunnel of the thumb only.

Yikes! I’ll bet that is next!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has Face Masks and Waiting for the Noodles…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, I never thought I would live to see the day that I am selling prints of my paintings on face masks!  I have sold my prints on a lot of household items and clothes but now my work is on face masks. 

I have included a link to my most popular wildflower painting, Natural Rhythm on a mask below.  They are $15.00.

Anyway, I am very pleased with the first stage of my latest wildflower painting.  I am taking a different approach to this one and I will just see what happens.  So far it has a nice swaying motion that I like very much. 

I may upload a first stage of it and I may not.  Sometimes I do that but this one has a lot of work to do and I don’t know if I want prints of the first layer available.  Oh well! The studio is getting cleaned up and organized at the same time!  Now that is a first!

Cheers to everyone!  We will get through this.  Be sure to view the Safe Grocery shopping video below if you haven’t seen it yet!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

This virus is devastating. There was only one small bag of one of our staples, Russell Stover pecan delights at kroger! We will have to ration them. Also, for two weeks I have had to eat organic regular spaghetti instead of Angel Hair!

What next? Big time LOL!!! I don’t mean to make light of this very serious situation and I do feel for all the people that are experiencing horrible hardships but I love to laugh. Always good to joke around in these difficult times.

Poor Clyde is noodleless right now. Our order for the kind he can eat still hasn’t arrived. Usually that company gets stuff to us faster than greased lightening.  He may be in for another spaghetti on potatoes night.  He did like that but spaghetti without noodles is just meat sauce. 

I think we will survive!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Church Innovations and The Whole Kitten Kaboodle…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I was so pleased to see one minister’s great solution to holding services with his congregation!  He got on the roof of the church and the parishioners were in their cars!  What a smart guy!  I wish all congregations that were determined to meet together would follow his example.

We need to keep our distance right now. Also, nothing wrong with online services.  I have been playing the piano at our church for years and will be happy to play again but it is nice to have a break. There are over 800 hymns and I certainly don’t know them all.

Cheers to everyone!  We will get through this.  Be sure to view the Safe Grocery shopping video below if you haven’t seen it yet!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before, Clyde has a weird disease that prevents him from eating a lot of foods in all food groups except meat.  He was in the habit of picking up a number of items at a specialty store but stopped that when this awful virus took over.

One of the things he can’t eat is flour so we get special kinds of noodles for spaghetti.  We ran out yesterday and he asked for potatoes as a side dish substitute.  Our order in the mail still hasn’t arrived. 

When dinner was ready I had to tease him a little. 

Okay, man without a noodle, dinner is served. 

Are you saying I am a man without a noodle that is going to eat the whole kitten kaboodle? 

Right. Why did I marry a writer? Enjoy your potato spaghetti!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Cleaning House and Don’t Talk to Otters…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

My studio is finally getting cleaned up.  Now that I am not getting out very much, the mess in this house and studio is staring me right in the face and I don’t have an excuse to ignore it. I am able to get  to my painting, music, and computer chores and still have time to clean up.  I don’t know how many layers of dust have accumulated  but those layers are bothering me now. 

You would think someone that is allergic to dust and mold would take better care of a house.  Well, when I only have time to paint or clean, guess which activity wins out?  I don’t like this quarantine any better than anyone else, but it does have this one advantage. 

Where is that duster?  I keep misplacing it. Time to get back to it.  Yuck!  Be sure to view my latest wildflower painting. Also be sure to view the  video below about safe grocery shopping if you haven’t already seen it and stay safe!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As always, Clyde gets up very early to check out wildlife around Radford.  I doubt there are many people that do that on a regular basis or at all.  He is quite the dedicated naturalist. 

You get up at the creak of dawn! 

Yes, and I creak around and then creak right on out of here. 

Just remember, don’t talk to the otters. Remember the time you did that and they started to come after you.  You must have said something nasty about their mother in otter talk.

Got it.  No otter talk.  I will return.

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Wow!  You know you are getting a good Yoga work out when your arm pits sweat during all those Downward Facing Dogs!  Like I always say, I take class because I can’t make myself get a really good work out at home.  Of course, right now I am always working out at home.  My great teacher sends classes with Zoom so I have someone telling me what to do.  I do yoga on the other days but nothing like what we did today.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

What a workaholic. Now that I am not going out much I have found more work to do.  Oh well, good to be busy during this sad time.  I woke up today thinking about all the things I want to do and was trying to think of that phrase that means Seize the Day. 

I asked Clyde.  Carp the dime? 

Carpe dodo? 

No, Carpe Diem! That’s it.  Well, I better, Carp the dime, Carpe dodo or Carpe Diem this Tuesday before it shoots right into Wednesday! Stay safe everyone!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Missing the Shore and A More Primitive State…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I don’t think I have ever wanted to be at the beach more than I do right now! I’m sure I am not the only one.  We were not planning on going this year due to some obligations we have to attend to but now that this virus is making it impossible for people to be at the beach, I want to be there more than ever!  I want to walk along the shore and stare at the beautiful breakers and wildlife.  I hope the pandemic will be over by July and people

can get back to typical summer activities.  I will certainly be at Claytor Lake when it is safe to swim again.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I told Clyde this pandemic is causing me to retreat to a more primitive state.  I just ate a Russells Stover pecan delight and DID NOT BRUSH MY TEETH!  I am obsessive about cleaning my teeth so this is quite a step backwards!

I used to tease my mother about how careful she was with teeth cleaning.  Our family dentist always told me that her teeth were the cleanest teeth he ever saw.  Well, I think I may be more careful than her now but this pandemic is really disrupting my life. 

Who knows what’s next?  LOL!
