Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back to Claytor Lake and Tail Chase…

So glad to be back to work on an oil painting of one of my favorite places in Southwest Virginia, Claytor lake!  I am looking forward to the warm weather when I can swim there again.  It was hard to stay away this summer but I didn’t want to risk Covid exposure. 

I have lots of fond memories of swimming there with family and friends.  I also want to go to the Peaks of Otter and Wintergreen on The Blue Ridge Parkway.  Lots of great mountain resorts that we like to go to.  We don’t ski so we like to go to Wintergreen for the hiking and swimming and great food! 

After 2020 we need a great break!

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I share the same computer that I practically live on.  When I take breaks, I always let him know it is available.

He hates computers but does use them for various chores. 

Yesterday he was watching some kind of Funny Videos program that had a dog chasing his tail. 

I asked him if he wanted to use the computer. 

No. 

You would rather watch a dog chase his tail then use the computer? 

I would rather watch a dog chase his tail, go to sleep on the program, wake up, and chase his tail again then use the computer.

That’s my guy!

I just don’t understand how this happens every year.  I think I have plenty of time to mail Christmas cards and packages and then, all of a sudden, Christmas is ten days away.  Yikes!

I have had such a busy day that I am just going to leave the same paintings up and add a Life with The Word and Bird Man segment and call it a day. 

I didn’t get to paint today but I have had a lot of nice responses to my latest Demo Youtube which is above. Be sure to check it out! I am very pleased with how this one turned out.

Lot of ideas for new oil paintings but not lots of time. Since it looks like we will be snowed in tomorrow I should be able to get one started.  I can’t believe how many Downward Facing Dogs we did today in Yoga class.  There ought to be a limit in each class.  Oh well.  I am getting stronger so I will keep at it.  Got to keep the old body going. 

I hope everyone has a great Holiday season!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I know I have mentioned the cardinal that keeps on clobbering itself on our window right behind the computer. Sometimes I can tune it out but other times it is really hard to take. 

We have tried everything to stop it but nothing has worked. It is trying to scare that awful competitor in the window away. 

Anyway, Clyde said that bird is like the postman. That’s for sure.  No matter what, that bird is pummeling itself.

“Neither snow nor rain nor heat nor gloom of night stays these couriers from the swift completion of their appointed rounds.”

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Glad she did not throw recent painting away and Pleased to sell more Wall Art Prints…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Still not back to my oil painting but I am just about finished with the acrylic demo one that I thought was a lost cause. So glad I did not throw it away. 

My last oil painting is in that, finished- but -not -quite -what -I wanted, phase.  I will get it online soon.  There isn’t anything wrong with it. Is is very close to what I want but not exactly.  Always the carrot just out of reach.  I just need to move on and it will look much better when I am not so caught up in it.

So pleased to sell more wall art prints to patrons in Texas and Virginia!  Peaks of Otter in Fall is one of my favorite mountain paintings and Wildflower Magic is a vibrant beauty. The original resides in Richmond, Va.  The original Peaks of Otter in Fall oil painting is still available!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell Another Print of Cloud Swirl over The Peaks of Otter and Back to the Program…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 So much to do today that I didn’t get to paint but I will tomorrow.  I am trying to just cross things off my list without any distracting moves.  My yoga teacher just about did me in today. 

Enough Downward Dogs to make anyone bark.  Lots of arm stretches which are so good for my weak ones.  I can do a lot of sit ups but I have never done a pull up.  Maybe I will try someday now that I do a lot of yoga. 

Anyway, I am so pleased to sell another print of Cloud Swirl over The Peaks of Otter to a great Louisiana patron!  I had a great talk with her on Facebook about which type of print to buy and she decided that a large canvas print with black sides would be the best for her bedroom. I am sure she will love it! She has a large print of my most popular floral, Natural Rhythm, in her Dining Room. 

Love to hear from previous buyers!

I can’t remember exactly what was said, but a newscaster or celebrity was saying they always like to come up with humor for their presentation. 

I turned to Clyde and said he just has to meet you.

Of course not, love of my life!

Blue Ridge Parkway is Running Around in Circles and Widespread Fraud…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

It is a beautiful day but I missed the morning light so I can’t get to the next layer of my current painting.  So much to do all the time and I am trying hard to catch up while the computer fights me. 

This morning it decided to just spin and spin and spin so I had to turn it off.  Can’t click on the restart button if it is spinning.  When I turned it back on that little line partly filled up but I didn’t think it would ever completely finish.  I wish my computer liked me more. 

Maybe computers don’t like artists that work in the old fashioned way of applying paint to a canvas rather than using a computer for paintings on paper.  Computer art is just not for me even though I see some great examples every day.  I much prefer to apply layers and then get to a final layer that has a unique elevated surface. 

Anyway, tomorrow I hope to get to my new lake painting.  It will be another sunset and only 8″ x 10″ so I won’t be intimidated by the cost of paint.  It is hard to believe there was a time when I painted in such thin layers that the cost of the paint was not an issue at all.  Not anymore! 

The virus stats in our area are increasing by quite a bit every day and there are more hospital stays and deaths. 

Please wear a mask.  If you think they are not necessary, just humor the rest of us!  It is the nice thing to do. Be nice!!

Lots of Backyardica these days for Clyde.  I think he has put on a few pounds.  He doesn’t think so but he looks a little bigger around the middle. 

We both saw this fun weight comment on my Twitter feed. 

I tried on a pair of pants that were too tight.  I don’t believe it. I am declaring widespread fraud.  

Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway is Pleased with Latest Sunset Painting and When Pigs Fly…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Sometimes a painting really comes together and it doesn’t even have to age! That is what happened this time and I am extremely pleased with my latest Blue Ridge sunset painting.  It came together after a number of detours and frustration. 

I didn’t quit because it was a good as it was going to get.  I quit because it was exactly what I wanted and that is always a red letter day!  I am pleased to present it here and I have started on another sunset painting. I am really into those gorgeous evening colors right now. 

I may do a still life soon but it is such a lot of work getting the composition and the lighting right.  Although painting is a lot of work, it is what I love to do but I am a little lazy about difficult set ups.  Oh well.  I will get to one soon.  Be sure to check out this week’s Demo Youtube above of St. Louis Missouri. Have a great day everybody!  I know I am!

Clyde and I have been a little uptight the last week or so.  He has said a few very funny things but I don’t think I should print them.  Anyway, we both loved something we saw on Facebook.  Someone asked God for a sign if the person was eating too much.  The picture of a cloud that looked just like a pig was floating by!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Completes Another Blue Ridge Painting…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I finished my latest Blue Ridge painting and will have it here soon.  My paintings are becoming more and more complex and the amount of paint is intimidating.  I use excellent paint so my work will last but the price tag sure is high.  The one I just completed is 24″ x 18″ and the one before that is 40″ x 30″. 

I am thinking about a small one next so I won’t hold back if I think one more thick layer is required.  Sometimes I quit because I know the next layer will have problems, too, and other times I am concerned about the cost of the paint.  Well, I know that won’t be an issue for an 10″ x 8″ so that is probably what I will do. 

Be sure to check out my latest Youtube above!  I wanted to paint a Suggestions painting but didn’t think any forms had shown up at the end of the video.  When it had completely dried there was part of a profile in the center, a woman as seen from the back to the right and a ghost like form to the left.  I added a little paint to bring out the profile and woman and added the face to the ghost. 

I had not intended on a Halloween painting, but that is what came out!

Blue Ridge Parkway is Still Learning the Ropes and More Troops on the Way…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I really am behind the eight ball today but that is nothing new.  Still not happy about the WordPress changes and will use the classic version until I have time to learn the new format.  I know I don’t have a computer problem every day but sometimes it seems that way.  Another day another computer problem is my motto even though that isn’t completely true.  

I think I am doing better than I used to in regards to getting  things right. That is probably because I have spent so much time on this thing that I am beginning to learn the ropes.  I probably used two sayings that aren’t used any more but I am not sure if that is true. “Behind the Eight Ball” and “learn the ropes”.  If they aren’t used anymore then that just shows how old I am . 

Oh well.  Time doesn’t stand still for any of us.  I have my board prepared for my next painting that I am really excited about.  I am hoping to combine a number of things I have learned from my Demo Youtubes in an oil painting of a Blue Ridge overlook.  I have other obligations today  but Thursday I will begin it for sure!  Please check out this week’s short Youtube on various oil paintings and have a great day!  It is beautiful here in Virginia today.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Love my evening dishwasher.  Now that Clyde has retired he does the supper dishes and I do the morning and lunch dishes. He does a good job and I noticed he is starting to do what my Mom and I do. 

If he sees any dishes he can wash before the meal is served he does them.  Relatives used to make fun of my Mom for that. One relative teased her and said she does the dishes before she eats. 

Well, it does help a lot to clean some pots and dishes that were used to mix things. 

Clyde says he is trying to get them done before more troops arrive.  Isn’t that the truth!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Worried about School Openings


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Not a lot to say today.  Still working away and trying to stay upbeat which is hard considering the spike in the number of viruses and deaths.  The numbers in Southwest Virginia have gone up quite a bit since restrictions were eased and I am concerned about kids going back to school. 

There are news items that claim they don’t spread it and are completely safe to attend school again.  I think that is probably fake news. 

Anyway, we are staying in quarantine until there is an effective vaccine. 

The actress Morgan Fairchild that bought three of my paintings said she was sure this spike would happen and she was certainly right.  Please wear a mask and stay away from people as much as possible.

Now that Clyde does not have to get up for work he is still getting up very early to check on wildlife around the area.  He sees a lot of amazing things and has learned not to talk to otters any more since they started to come after him that time he did call out to them. 

Since he does get up around 5:00 he usually takes a short nap after lunch.  Today he asked me if I needed to get into the bedroom before he closed the door. 

I can’t think of anything I need to get in there for.

Thanks a lot. 

Ha ha.  Of course I always like to be near you, you boob!  Have a nice nap.

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.
