Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Very Aggravated with this New Format and Pleased to Sell a Print of Wildflower Mist…

I guess WordPress has changed their format which is probably helpful to many but it is always a problem for me.  I get used to one way of doing things and then it is different. I hate to be a stick in the mud, but I wish they would not change site formats. 

I am looking forward to my next painting which will be a Blue Ridge landscape which is my main work.  This time it will be based on a location with some improvisations in the look of the overlook and the sky.

Hope everyone is well and staying as safe as possible.

 

Well I can’t figure out a thing in this new format.  I thought I had pressed classic editor but I guess I didn’t.  The new one kept asking me if I wanted to stay on the page when I was typing something.   Arggh! Now I am back to classic so I can get things done.  I thought I would never get used to the Wix format but I am getting better at it so I am sure I will get used to this. 

I am using the classic editor but weird things keep happening so I may have to claim victory and retreat before I pull my hair out. 

I HAVE HAD ENOUGH COMPUTER AGGRAVATION FOR ONE DAY.

Anyway, I am glad to sell a print of Wildflower Mist to a great Georgia patron!  This one will be in a nursery.  How great to think of a baby waking up to one of my paintings!

I don’t have a lot to say today.  I couldn’t paint because it is just too dark.  My Daylight Fluorescent lights aren’t good enough when it is very dark. I can’t see the warm colors well enough so they would be too strong if I worked this morning. It is still very dark. I hope I get some light tomorrow.

I want to add my latest floral to my website and include it in my newsletter.  It has been quite an experience.  I am very pleased with how it turned out considering I was quite discouraged in the beginning stages.  I just have a little more to do.

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Nothing from The Word Man today but I did make him smile with this Bible joke I saw on Facebook today. 

One of the people on Noah’s ark asked him where she should put the bees.  In the Ark Hives, of course. Don’t groan too loud!

I wonder what he would have said about mosquitoes. Go find a arm to bite?  LOL!

Well, the summer is shot.  I hope an effective vaccine is available soon.  I am going to do my research before I get harpooned.  Such an awful virus.  I have a friend that lost fourteen people to this virus.  Fourteen!!!  This is not a hoax as I am seeing some people say on social media. 

Although more seniors succumb than the young, I have seen reports of children dying of Covid.  Hopefully things will get better soon.  On an up note I am just about done with my latest floral and will be pleased to add it to my portfolio.  It truly is a color feast and I hope everyone enjoys it.

I am also pleased to sell another print of my most popular shore painting, Marsh View at Pawleys Island to a great Virginia patron!  As I have said before, I mostly work on paintings of the Blue Ridge and surrounding mountains but the shore is my second favorite place.  It is not my most popular painting.  A Break in the Clouds is the most popular painting.  I may change the heading image here to that painting, at least for a while.

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!

I keep plugging along and try to keep from getting this virus.  I wish people would forego the beach this summer.  A huge spike in covid-19 in Florida says it all. 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.

I was not happy to hear about how long we need to quarantine ourselves but I know we have to do this.  This virus is horrible.  I have plenty to do but I would like to get out of the house to go to a few stores. 

I really need to get some new shoes and I know I won’t have online luck with that.  Sometimes a 9 fits and sometimes a 9.5 fits.  Shoes are weird.  Also, I would like to go to Walmart just to look around.  I am not much for shopping but right now I could get into it. 

Well, can’t complain that much.  Our favorite Chinese restaurant is open!  We will take the doctor’s advice and re-heat everything.  I was glad to come across this below video on how to handle things we have to buy.  Be sure to check it out! 

We all need to behave like surgeons in an operating room. 

I am very pleased to sell three prints of Blue Ridge beauty to a great Pembroke patron!  It is so great to see my artwork getting out to people!  That always makes me happy! The three paintings that were selected are below the Doctor video.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Happy Again and What about the ones in Congress?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

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 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!!!!

Sometimes a painting experience is over the top! My latest Blue Ridge painting looked so good in the second stage that I was worried I would lose the strong effect in the next phase.  Was I ever wrong!  I am achieving the most complex painting that I have ever done and I will be shoving any impediment to work to get to it tomorrow.

I don’t think extreme attention to detail necessarily makes for a successful painting.  There will always be so much more to painting than trying to represent what I see that can’t really be represented due to the constant change of light and shade throughout the day. That is why I work from a photograph that I took of a specific moment that I want to embellish.

I put myself into the work with decisions about color and texture that are sometimes in the photograph and sometimes my reaction to the paint as it is applied to the surface. 

Anyway, back to detail.  I do like to get as much detail as possible in these atmospheric landscapes because of the beautiful colors that occur as I work on tricky areas.  It is not really about the detail. It is about the color and I am getting more color than ever before! 

Looking forward to tomorrow’s session.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I doubt that everyone remembers the Pet Rock Craze from the seventies.  The guy that came up with this crazy pet idea walked away with 15 million for it.  The rocks came in boxes with air holes.  Anyway, it was quite an amazing marketing trend that didn’t last long.

Well the other day I was going back to work on all my computer chores and Clyde said have fun. 

I jokingly said I have a lot of fun working on the computer but I’m not sure the computer is happy about it. 

I have seen pet rocks have more fun than computers. 

I’m sure if a computer could talk it would agree!

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.
