Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Wants Life Guards at Claytor Lake


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

Filmed another Youtube !  Please check it out!  This one is a Center of my Mind painting!  I am especially pleased with the energetic brushwork! So glad to not see 90 degrees on my car monitor!  I hope it stays that way for a while. 

I don’t like going from Summer to Winter.  I want some Fall weather.  I wish Claytor Lake could employ some Life Guards and open the bathrooms at the swimming area in the Fall.  I could have been swimming for weeks after they closed down. 

Oh well, there is always The Aquatic Center.  One of these days I am going to get up my nerve to go down the high slide!  Looks like such fun for someone like me that never really grew up!

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I am so please I filmed another Youtube !  Please check it out!  I am especially pleased with the vibrant color contrast in this one!

Wow!  What happened to Thursday? I wanted to post this but never got the chance.  Yoga, Line Dancing, Bowling, piano practice, and housework.  Hopefully, today will be a little less hectic.  I wish I would sleep better.  I went to bed at 11:30 and probably actually got to sleep at 12:00 and  up at 6:00.  Gee, I wonder why I am so tired all the time. Back to work.  Cheers for the weekend!  Please check out the Special Promotion below of my most popular lake painting!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Dragging herself to the Dentist…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

Not looking forward to this afternoon. I have to get another crown.  This is my third one and I hope it is the last.  My first dentist was awful and did not see that I had three cavities and one was very bad.  They were discovered after we switch dentists. 

Like a lot of people, as I got older cracks developed in spite of the fillings so it is either get a crown or lose the tooth.  Of course, the gold crown is cosmetic according to the  insurance company  so the cost is very high.  How can a crown be cosmetic in any way? 

Oh well, I will paint this morning, do a lot of computer and house chores and then get on over to an unpleasant procedure. 

Glad to have great people that are willing to work in a mouth.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Fighting Ants Again…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I have been battling ants today.  We have a lot of trouble with ants so I went to work scrubbing the table and floor where they have congregated the most. They are also on the counters and having a big party in the bathroom.  I guess toothpaste is where the action is.

Anyway, I did a lot of the Yoga table top pose today and thought I had done some good.  An hour later they were covering up the table again.  That is when I shrewdly noticed I had not moved the plastic jar of honey.  The trail was leading right to it.  So, got rid of the honey and now there are a few stragglers wondering where the Free Food Festival is. 

Hopefully, we can eat on our table without obnoxious visitors this evening.  Fingers crossed! 

Be sure to check out my latest Youtube below.  I am real pleased with my Imaginary Butterfly!  I will have a new one of my regular work up soon  I just completed another Blue Ridge Parkway painting of the James River!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Latest Butterfly Painting and You can stay…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I tried something different this time with my latest Suggestion painting that I filmed and will present on Monday.  I had been covering the surface quickly with a large brush and then spending more time on the second stage after I dried the first stage.  This time I wanted to have more complicate systems of color like my main work so I used a small brush and took more time on the first stage.  A nebulous, and I mean nebulous butterfly seemed to show up so that is what I went with. 

The contrast between the butterfly and the background is not strong, so in the third stage I will separate the two and make it even more complicated.  Love to work with color! More than anything else, my work is about color regardless of the level of abstraction.  Looking forward to finishing the painting and I will have a link to the finished work here and in the description on the Youtube! 

I am up to 191 followers now and hope to greatly increase that number!  Cheers on a Saturday! 

Check out a representational colored pencil butterfly below.  The one I am working on is an imaginary abstract butterfly.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 A long time ago I thought it would be a good idea to buy a small house so we wouldn’t fill it up with stuff that we have to get rid of. Well, that didn’t work. I have spent years moving things out and we really need more room for all of Clyde’s records. 

A lot of his research needs to be in paper form rather than on a computer so, instead of scaling down, we will be scaling up. 

Last night when I made the very short trip from the kitchen to the other end of the house to find my glasses and other things, I thought about what it would be like in a big house. 

I told Clyde I had better sharpen up before we move. 

Well, if you get too sharp you might throw me out. 

No, you and all your stuff gets to stay.

That’s a relief.
