I have finally got to the finesse stage of my latest floral and am so pleased to be done with most of the work.  I love what I do but it does require a lot of time and discipline.  I am going to work on another Blue Ridge overlook painting that I have a good idea for that resulted from the ones I recently demonstrated on Youtube.  I have a lot of photographs from the Parkway to work from but I think I am going to ad lib a lot on this one.  I may just base it on some ranges and then go from there. 

Anyway, I am so glad we voted yesterday.  I am seeing posts of lines that are a quarter of a mile long in Northern Virginia.  Wow!  We just went in to the registrar’s office and got it done in a few minutes.  I think it is great that people are voting early and making sure their vote counts. 

Also, very pleased to sell another print of one of my most popular paintings, Canoes at Mountain Lake to a great Texas patron.  This is the setting for the hit movie Dirty Dancing and we have vacationed there twice!  The natural lake practically emptied but it seems to be filling up again!  Hope to go there soon!

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

What a strange year for someone that has spent countless hours researching birds and butterflies all over the Blue Ridge and surrounding mountains. 

This time of the year he is usually leading hawk watches up at Rocky Knob.  Now his hawk watching post is Back Yardica. 

He is the president, founder, recording secretary,  and only member of The Backyardica Bird Club. 

He sure has seen a lot of hawks lately!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Got out The Pen and Ink and Where is that Snickers?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, I did something today that I have not done in many years.  I got out my pen and ink supplies and finished a pen and ink drawing I started a long time ago.  I am anxious to get back to my oil painting work but I have a number of old pieces that I have been meaning to complete.  That was quite an experience.  I demonstrated part of the work on my latest Youtube and was so surprised the ink didn’t run down my hand. 

Pen and ink drawings are done sitting down but my Youtube set-up is vertical. I decided to give it a try and didn’t have any problems.  I’ll never forget demonstrating pen and ink in my Hands on Art Appreciation class years ago.  I didn’t have the great computer set-up that came later so I taped a piece of paper on the black board and demonstrated that way.  Of course, the ink ran down my arm which is embarrassing in front of fifty people. 

I actually had fifty students at a time try pen and ink with ink wells on their desk.  When someone accidentally dumped the ink well all over the desk and floor I realized I should give them tape to secure the well.  Much to my surprise there would always be at least one student that would knock the well off even though it was taped down.  So I wisely switched to a fine point sharpee and had them buy them, too. 

Teaching can be quite an adventure, especially for people like me that try unusual approaches in a lecture room.  Anyway, I don’t have the finished drawing uploaded to my portfolio yet but I have included another one of my pen and ink drawings below. Check it out!

Also, the pandemic is still a very serious threat to all of us. Please take the doctor video below very seriously!

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I got a laugh out of the response to a joke I shared on Facebook.  As I have mentioned before I do two things to keep my weight down and I got Clyde to do the same thing. We eat a balanced diet and we count calories.  I saw such a cute joke with Miss Piggy about junk food that I had to share it.

I have an eating disorder. I am about to eat dis order of fries, dis order of wings, and dis order of nuggets.

Here is my friend’s response.

Not you. Junk never passes your lips.

True, but I couldn’t resist sharing this! So cute! Now, where did I put that snickers bar?

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Has a Suggestion…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Wow, I am sitting on my hands when I come across certain posts on Facebook. As I said I am no longer posting rebuttal comments because I don’t think they help and I just get called offensive names by people that disagree.

Still, I would like to say here where I think most, if not all of my followers are like-minded people, that we need to fact check some of the outrageous claims by some people on Facebook.  If you think that the Swine Flu was worse than Covid-19 so we shouldn’t have to wear masks or close schools since that didn’t happen with the Swine Flu, please look up the rebuttal articles. 

Covid-19 is much worse and it is not on the way out any time soon.  On a good note, I am having a great time going back to older work that I wanted to change in some ways.  Still getting some clean up work done and hiding out with my family. 

I feel like we are in a prison but it really is a nice prison!  Hope we will be sprung in 2021. Cheers and stay safe!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell Another Blue Ridge Parkway Painting!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, things certainly are looking up as another one of my medium sized Blue Ridge Parkway paintings was purchased by a great Washington patron!  It is so important to me to place my work where it will be appreciated. Morning Color Dance is my favorite Oil Pastel painting.

I used to argue with people that say artists are crazy.  Well, in my case I work like a maniac so if that is why people think I am crazy, then yes, I am nuts.  My latest one is taking quite a lot of time but I still have not gotten to the point where I just wish it were done.  I still want to work on it and it is coming along and the balancing act between the effect I am after and the effects that show up as I paint is working out well. 

I don’t think I will be arm wrestling on this one, just a lot of work.  Looking forward to the next session.  I have too much to do tomorrow and Sunday so I will have to wait until Monday.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Having a Rough Day


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Not my favorite day.  We all have them and this is a very bad one for me for personal reasons.  I didn’t have time to paint when the light was good but that is not the reason I am so out of sorts.  I have to endure something that I don’t really have to endure but the alternative is not something I want to do, so some days are very difficult.  Oh well. We are all having a bad time with this virus so I think I will just get to work and quit griping. 

I am pleased to sell another print of Rosy Evening at Isle of Palms, my most popular photograph to a great Oregon patron and the first sale of Black Swallowtail to a great India patron!   Time to count my blessings and be happy. 

Check out my latest Youtube above. I decided to do some more Kendall Letters paintings.  I only have a few of them and the viewers seemed to really like this “A” so I think I will do a few more.  Hang in there everyone.  I think a vaccine is on the horizon.  Hope so!

Anyway, I am pleased to be selling prints of popular works! Another print of A Break in the Clouds and Richmond on the James, and Smith Mountain Lake were sold this week. 

All three of these paintings have been sold in print form many times.  The original paintings, A Break in the Clouds and Richmond on the James have been sold.   Always great to get my work out there while I am working away on more.  My latest painting is taking a very long time but it is coming along nicely.  Hope to finish it soon.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Worried over the Increase in Covid-19 Cases…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Well, I knew I would not get through with my latest painting without some art or arm wrestling but it wasn’t a hair pulling time, just a few set backs and I am looking forward to tomorrow rather than wishing I just played the piano and never picked up a brush.  I love to paint but it can be difficult at times.  My husband gave me a great compliment on the progress so far and that helped a lot. 

Anyway, I am still so worried over this virus and hope and pray I don’t get it from someone at the grocery store that refuses to wear a mask and doesn’t know they are carrying it.  I am practically pole vaulting away from people.  I am amazed at  how some people think it is over when many states are reporting a great increase in cases.

I usually stay out of politics because it has been my experience that people do not want to calmly debate issues. They insist they are right and people they talk to should just agree with them.  Well, I am going to make an exception and  comment on the current administration.  Our president should not be having mass rallies during a pandemic.  He can have virtual ones.  I think he should take this pandemic more seriously and listen to medical experts regarding the duration of this catastrophe. 

There. I said it and I am entitled to my opinion.  No one has to agree with me and I will not get into an argument over this.  Please wear a mask and practice social distancing. 

As you can see I am getting into fall scenes right now.  My current painting is a fall painting of The Peaks of Otter lodge. 

Also be sure to watch my news video above and the Safe Grocery Shopping video if you haven’t seen it yet. I am going to include it for a long time. We still need to act like surgeons in an operating room.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Getting Run Over by Technology and New Legal Term…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Argh, argh and argh again!  I am so tired of being run over by technology.  Now my phone is acting up and it is a new one.  I always get help from my husband when I have to contact the provider for help.  If I don’t I may start heaving things around the room in total exasperation. 

What really aggravates me is we spend fifty minutes trying to get help and have to just say bye on the chat.  It always goes this way.  I explain the problem and am given a solution which does not the apply to the problem. Then the agent goes through a bunch of other solutions that don’t work and then just repeats the first solution. 

That is when I want to start chucking things.  Oh well, I figured a way around the problem and will just go with it.  I don’t want another fifty minute useless chat.  We could call but then we can’t understand the representative because of the thick accent.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I may have to appear in court for the first time and I have been thinking of all the things that people can’t say on the stand. Hey, I have seen lots and of lots of Judge Judy! 

One word keeps coming to mind that we have all heard.  Hearsay.  I think of all the things I could say which would be labeled hearsay. 

Then I thought of some other things I shouldn’t say and decided I had come up with a new legal word!  I had to tell Clyde.  He hadn’t heard it before. 

There is Hearsay and then there is Stupidsay.  I better avoid both of them if at all possible!

Well, once again I decided on a different direction with a painting that was fighting me and then all of a sudden it started talking to me and cried uncle.  I finally resolved the problems I was having with the spacing and atmospheric effect.  As usual, I sort of know how I got to that point but not really. 

Painting is always an adventure unless the painter follows formulaic devices.  I would quit rather than take that approach.  Anyway, there is something different about the surface quality that I am very pleased with and will probably quit soon before I over work it. 

Any of this make sense to you?  It would if you had a paint brush strapped to you like me.  You have to really love art to put up with all the problems but it is so great when they get out into the world.  As I always say,  I can’t take them with me. 

Cheers on a Monday!  Check out my Monday youtube!  I decided to paint one more on a paper towel. Fun experience!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday we were watching a cute little girl on TV holding a skunk.  She claimed she would not be sprayed since she was not a threat to the skunk.  I had a hard time believing that and figured the glands had been removed which I know can be done.  Anyway, she gave the figures for the skunk population in the US and the skunk made me think of Congress. 

I’ll bet those numbers don’t include the skunks in Congress. 

Clyde said some of those skunks would scare a skunk sprayless. 

Right. 

Just kidding. I’m sure there are some hard working members of Congress but I’ll bet it does stink at times in there.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Finally Gets to Her Blog…

I can’ believe I am just now getting to my blog.  Yikes, what a day!  Too much to do.  I know am like a broken record.  I don’t know the meaning of the word bored.  Okay, I know the meaning but it certainly does not apply to me.  I managed another Youtube that I will upload on Monday, cleaned up, practiced the piano for church tomorrow, went to the store for a bunch of things we really can’t do without, fixed dinner but did not do the dishes yet. 

Made some brownies, spent quite a lot of time on Youtube looking at friend’s Youtubes and am just two away from four hundred followers! 

Also sent an email to a patron that wants me to do a number of commissions for him.  Also uploaded another painting in my Simple Variations Collection on my website. 

Did I mention all the dishes I did before they piled up again?  I am one busy artist every day of the week!  Please check out my latest Youtube above and my latest upload on my website below. 

Cheers!
