Well, once again I have been crowned.  Yuck.  Now I have three crowns and the Insurance Company still wants to insist I got them for cosmetic reasons.  Yeah, I want people to see gold teeth when I smile rather than the natural color.  It was either get a crown or lose the tooth.  I think they should fess up and pay for part of that so-called cosmetic procedure.  I had to pay $1086.00.  No insurance coverage at all.

Anyway, glad to sell more Blue Ridge painting prints to mountain dwellers like myself!  A great NC patron bought prints of Blue Ridge Autumn and The Smoky Mountains!  A NC patron owns Blue Ridge Autumn and a NY patron owns The Smoky Mountains but wall art prints and prints on just about anything are available!  Check out the possibilities by clicking on the link under the paintings!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

A little dark humor this time.

I was joking with Clyde about the next election and told him he would make a great president.

No, but if elected I would make History.

How’s that?

I would be the first president to assassinate himself.

Okay, no white house for you unless we paint this one.  Don’t think that will happen. I like the brown.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is getting into Youtubing and A Pair of What?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I am really getting into this youtube thing!  It is a great experience to create a spontaneous painting each week while talking about  art.  I have done ten of these and will continue to upload one on Mondays. 

I retired from teaching at Radford University but I still like to express my views on art and hope people get something out of my talks.  There are a lot of misconceptions about art and artists that I like to clear up.  Be sure to click on my videos! 

It’s all about what I love!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has Finished another Youtube and Fire up the Wok!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I am so please I filmed another Youtube !  I am trying to have one a week but it is hard.  I was going for one of my coloristic, whimsical works but I think when I finish it , it will have gentle color contrast and soft modulation of color. 

I truly paint in many different directions and I am making it a point to experiment in my Demo youtubes.  The last two were based on sketches but I thought I would probably get wild with the color.  The puppy one certainly isn’t lacking in strong color but it is almost monochromatic.  I did use a limited palette but I didn’t use strong color accents like I thought I would. 

Anyway, I should have the latest one up  tomorrow and then I want to make a short youtube on my latest Blue Ridge painting that I am very pleased with! 

Be sure to check them out and my Special Promotion of my most popular floral at the end of this blog that ends tomorrow!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I love to goad Clyde into saying something that makes me laugh.  The other day I was looking at the menu at a Chinese restaurant that we usually go to once a week. 

I asked him why is there a chicken dish that is called General Tsao’s Chicken? 

I don’t know.  Maybe it was a general that loved to cook.  After he sent the warriors out he fired up the wok. 

Actually, I looked it up and it was named after a nineteenth general who loved eating it.  So, I guess someone else fired up the wok. Probably his wife.  LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I are still going through the Married with Children TV show. I bought all seasons and we have been having a great time watching such a hilarious show!  I still accuse Clyde of writing it and hiding the money somewhere.  The lines are so like the clever quips I hear all the time from him. 

He is not an easy audience.  Once in a while I get him to laugh.  On the show they are always cracking jokes about Oprah and one of my favorite Peggy speeches is when she tried to convince Al she works so hard for him.  She watches Oprah all day so they will have something to talk about.  She dresses up and takes beauty naps so he will be interested in her.  She spends all his money so he will think he is a good provider.  It is an exhausting, thankless job, but she does it all for him. 

How Katie Sagal said all that with a straight face is beyond me.  Yesterday, when Clyde called to wake me up I told him I found a channel that shows Oprah reruns all day long and I was going to watch them so we could have something to talk about. 

Got a laugh from him that time!

Wow!  The ants are marching away in our bathroom. The kitchen still has some but they look like they are just wandering around looking for food or their friends.  I guess toothpaste rules.  Masses and masses in the bathroom.

Anyway, between cleaning up my studio and fighting with ants I managed to finish my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting and uploaded a video on it.  Be sure to check it out below and see the painting on my website!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

Soon we will be looking into moving.  We need to work on this house and find one that will suit us. Could be a year or two but we will move.

As I said before, we will not be down sizing as people tend to do when they retire.  We need more room for all of Clyde’s research and I hope I can get a bigger studio. 

Yesterday, I said to Clyde that when we move and have more room we may actually accomplish something we never accomplished with this home.

What’s that? 

Clean it up. 

Fat chance.  Dream on.

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.
