Not getting out much but I did want to buy a new thermometer.  Of course, our digital one decided to retire and I went to two Drug stores and surprise, surprise!  They were all out.  On well,  we seem to be okay and if I have to go to the store I wear gloves that get drowned in boiling water when I get home.   This is awful but we can’t complain that much.  We aren’t hurting for anything except a thermometer that works and I always have more than enough to do all the time. 

I am so pleased that people continue to look at my work and buy originals and prints.  A great Kansas patron bought three prints of one of my most vibrant florals, Sunflower Burst!  This time the prints are on carry-all pouches. It is fun to think of all the items that have been bought with my artwork on them!  Most of my sales are originals and wall art prints but prints on just about anything can be purchased. 

I am very excited about starting a small wildflower painting tomorrow!  I always enjoy painting wildflowers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde doesn’t have a Facebook personal account and doesn’t visit the site but I do, so I like to tell him about the jokes that I see on it.  There is a lot of great humor there! 

Recently someone posted that since we have learned to wash our hands now we can go on to colors and shapes! 

Clyde said he could hold up a pillow and say one, then hold up an identical pillow and say two, and so on. 

Maybe we do need to get back to that great informative book, “All I really need to know, I learned in Kindergarten”.  I should probably brush up on that book myself. LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Sanitizing Over and Over Again and Did you hear that?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, I couldn’t miss Line Dance Class today so when I arrived I put sanitizer on my hands.  Then I put gloves on and kept them on during the whole class.  I stood six feet away from each dancer. 

When I got in my car to leave I took the sanitizer out again, took off my gloves and put that stuff on again. 

When I got home I put the gloves in the wash.  I hope that did it.  I don’t want to stop living to keep from dying but the Rec Center where the classes are held may shut down.  I think most everyone else is smarter than me regarding this pandemic. 

On well.  I have the CDS from out performances and it doesn’t take much room to dance away.  Now the question is whether or not I go to Yoga class tomorrow.  Anyway, I finished my latest Blue Ridge painting of a Wintergreen Sunset. Please check it out!  Also be sure to check out my latest Youtube above!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde told me a long time ago that when retired he would get some sophisticated equipment to record bird songs.  Now he says he probably won’t do that. 

Why? 

My hearing is not what it used to be.  A lot of Bird Watchers our age can’t hear certain bird songs. I can’t even hear a Golden Crowned Kinglet. 

Or me asking you to do the dishes.  Just joking. Clyde is great about taking turns washing the dishes and I hope he does get that equipment. 

To quote the very fun movie Galaxy Quest.  Never give up! Never surrender!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Getting Some Sleep and You want me to Leave?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I have been having hard time sleeping lately for many reasons so last night was great! I went to bed at 10:30 and didn’t get up until 8:00!  Always good to get some much needed sleep. 

I have never been one of those people that drop right off like my husband does.  Some of us have a very hard time turning off our minds.  I am not surprised that I remember a lot of whacky dreams since I don’t sleep that well. 

Anyway, I am looking into my next painting idea and I  put up my Monday video on Youtube! Be sure to check it out.  I decided to go back to some Skyline Beauty paintings and the first one is of Dallas Texas. 

I decided to make myself take a simpler approach and I like the way it turned out.  Be sure to click on it.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I was feeling a little down the other day so naturally I wanted to get some cheering up from Clyde so I lied down next to him in the bedroom where he was watching T.V.

I want you to do something to cheer me up.

Leave?

No. 

Well, at least I didn’t look in the mirror and complain about how old I look and then asked him to say something nice and his response was, “Well, your eyesight is perfect.” 

Love that joke!  Important to laugh every day!

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!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Unhappy about Wintergreen painting and Did he Leave a Bill?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well,  my latest painting took a nose dive off a Blue Ridge cliff.  After all I wrote about how well it was going it decided to turn into an arm wrestling painting.  Oh well.  This happens and when it does I always repeat the following.  

Paintings will drive you crazy if you let them.  Don’t let them drive you crazy.  I never do. At least I think I am sane.

I have been to this point before and scrap the approach I was using, try something else and usually it turns out great and I have no idea how I got to the end. 

I know that sounds strange but it is not strange to another painter.  They know what I am talking about unless they have a formula they follow with every painting which would be so boring to me that I would quit painting.  I have known a few painters that do that, but not many. 

Most painters sort of know what they are doing but not really and every painting is a learning experience. 

I will get in there tomorrow and fight the colorful fight.  Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Now that Clyde and I share the dishes 50-50 I like to tease him sometimes.  Yesterday the kitchen looked so good after he finished that I asked him if he had help. 

Oh yeah.  Some guy came in here and did them for me.

Did he leave a bill? 

No, he just did the dishes and walked out.

I wish he would do that for me.  I am going to have to include this in my blog. 

Argh!!  I am going to just stop talking. 

Now you know you will never do that.  You told me once the name Clyde means heard from afar and you are right here with all your pearls of wisdom.

And again, arghhhh!!!!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Progress on Wintergreen painting and There will be dishes…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I had a lot of success with my new painting of a Wintergreen sunset yesterday and decided I should put it in my Stages of my Artwork collection.  I am intending to completely cover it with another layer that will look very much like it does now but with even more complicated systems of color and texture. 

I have learned so much about the technique that is the best approach for my expressions but I keep changing with every painting and there is something quite different about the color interaction in the mountains this time.  I have always found that constant flucuation of warm and cool colors in the Blue Ridge ranges to be especially difficult so I am very excited that it is working out better than ever this time and I don’t want to lose what I have right now so the file will be preserved. 

Looking forward to the next session!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Now that Clyde has retired from Tech he is great about helping me with the housework.  He is also trying to straighten up his mountains of research in our computer room that actually has a bed for a guest but can’t be used without an overhaul of all the stuff that is on it and under it.  Oh well, he keeps at it. 

Anyway, we share the dishes. We take turns doing the lunch and supper detail.  On Sunday we eat out.  Last Sunday I decided to do the lunch dishes which includes dishes from breakfast and snacks.  We are probably the biggest snackers on the planet. 

I told him I would do the lunch dishes and he would do the supper dishes and, as God is my witness, there will be supper dishes.  It doesn’t matter whether or not we cook, they still breed like rabbits.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Return to Latest Blue Ridge Painting and Staying Alive…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, as usual I am wondering what happened to Monday.  Someone shot another day out of a cannon.  I was very glad to get back to work on my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting and it is still coming along.  I had an art wrestling time with it last week but I think I am over that and looking forward to what will probably be the last layer. 

I can see why experts like to x-ray paintings.  All my layers are intricate systems of brushwork and come completely together at the end.  I didn’t take photos of different stages this time.  I like to do that but it slipped my mind.  So far, I don’t think I am losing very successful parts. 

It has not been one of those paintings that are a terrific struggle.  This one has been like a nice  ride down the river with just a  few bumps.  The tough ones keep me on my toes but it is nice to have one that does not fight with me that much.  Be sure to check out my Monday video above!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I love comedy!  The other day I was watching a great stand up comedian on a show I don’t usually watch and he was cracking me up. 

The last thing he said was he saw a woman with pants that had the word yoga on them.  His comment was the pants may say yoga but the woman in them  says McDonalds. 

I mentioned that to Clyde and said I had seen a lot of girls in yoga pants that say McDonalds but I don’t think I am one of them. 

I agree. 

You are a smart husband that wants to stay alive. 

That’s right.
