Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Concerned about Post Office and Now I am Clean…

In order to promote my artwork I spend a lot of time on the internet so I am always seeing news that I have strong opinions about. I don’t want to offend anyone and tell them how they should think about these things but there are some that I think everyone should take seriously regardless of their political affiliation.  The one I am most concerned about is the changes in the postal service.   Sorting machines should not have been taken out of post offices and mail boxes should not have been carted away. The postmaster says no more of that will occur so that it is not a problem with the election. 

THEN WHY HAVEN’T THEY BEEN PUT BACK? 

No more needs to be said.  We will be voting in person at the registrar as soon as it is possible to vote there for this election. If you want to be sure your vote counts look into how it can be done early without standing in line and without delay due to the volume the post office will handle. 

Back to my artwork.  My latest floral is coming along well with a certain sparkle that I wasn’t really trying to achieve. It is always an adventure as I balance between control and accident! 

Have a great day and stay safe!  I have included a link to a face mask above the first painting.  I have been forgetting to do that but will try to remember from now on.

 Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I love to laugh and I am glad I married a guy that loves to laugh, too. I think puns are hilarious. I know a lot of people groan and think they are stupid.  I crack up over them.  Here is one that made Clyde laugh and he is a touch audience.  I used to be a soap addict. Now I am clean.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Mulling over Latest Painting…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I have high hopes for my latest floral.  It is a cultivated flower garden and I am pleased with the spacing and the value pattern.  Now to get to the hard part.  The expression that I can’t explain is always the most important part of the painting for me.  It will be an intricate system of warm and cool colors but it is difficult to get the intricacy that I want and still have a strong surface quality.

Yeah, I bet anyone reading this knows exactly what I am talking about.  I hardly know myself what I am talking about.  Oh well, time to get to the journey. I can’t paint tomorrow due to schedule problems and that is always a problem for me. 

I was listening to Dr. Fauci regarding safe practices during this epidemic and learned something I didn’t know.  A person’ blood type plays a minimal role in regards to the infection.  Type A people are slightly more susceptible to Covid-19 but he said there was very  little difference between blood types regarding this virus.  Good to know since I have A negative.

 Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde’s bird research is mostly limited to out door excursions in our back yard or out door excursions on our front porch.  Staying put due to the pandemic.  I like to tease him about his travels when he heads out to one of his posts.

Don’t get lost. 

I’ll use GPS to get back home. 

You don’t even use that in the car.

Well, strange circumstances call for strange new safe guards. 

Ha ha.  Have fun.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has Begun Latest Floral


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I think my latest painting is going to be quite a different experience.  I did decide on a creative version of a cultivated floral garden but I am not sure which direction I want to take it in.  I always prefer to elaborate on what is in front of me to express something of myself I can’t explain but this time I may go more into a fantasy version. 

I pretty much have the spacing worked out so now I get to separating out the values and determining the color expression that will work well.  Always an intense experience that usually gets to some arm wrestling.  The last one was a lot of work but each stage seemed to come along without any hair pulling.

We will see this time. I think there is going to be big time arm wrestling, but I hope not. 

Looking forward to working on it tomorrow no matter what happens.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has Decided on Next Floral and Teaching them to Swim…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Well, I finally decided on my next oil painting and started on it yesterday.  I am going to paint a creative interpretation of a flower garden.  I was thinking of another wildflower painting but changed my mind.  I am working from a photograph that I took of part of a flower garden and will greatly change it. 

The photograph will mostly provide some ot the spacing and the types of flowers but I will provide my own expression and may even change the colors of the flowers.  I wish I could explain what I do but I can’t and it really doesn’t matter that much. 

It will be a creation of my own making based on something I saw that will work well with my intentions. It is always a journey from start to end no matter what direction I take. 

Be sure to check out this week’s youtube above! I decided to get back to my Skyline Beauty paintings and this first one is of a San Diego CA skyline.

Life with The Word and Bird Man- Clyde Kessler

 

I think I have mentioned before that when I was young I decided the best way to avoid having an alcohol problem was to not drink at all.  You can’t miss something you never had. 

I don’t say this to brag at all. I am just really into logic and I saw several of my Dad’s friends with a raging alcohol problem and I didn’t want to make life more difficult than it already is.  My Dad did not drink at all.

There is nothing wrong with it, I would rather just leave it alone and Clyde also has left it alone but his reason was much more personal.

Anyway, we two teetotalers got a big kick out of a funnie we saw on an old movie the other day.  One man was drinking and the other was not.

The one that was not drinking said, “I don’t think drinking drowns problems.  It just teaches them to swim.”

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Planning Next Floral


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I am having a hard time deciding which direction to go with my next painting. I was thinking of a cultivated flower garden but now I still have some ideas for a creative wildflower painting.  Flower gardens are beautiful but I prefer the interaction of wildflowers and I am not surprised that Natural Rhythm is my most popular floral.

I am always amazed at the beautiful designs found in creeks.  It is like an artist that has studied design for decades placed everything in a perfect composition.  Sometimes I arrange things differently from what I see for a strong effect which is what artistic license is all about.  It is always an arrangement regardless of the initial inspiration.

My last floral was mostly made up based on systems of wildflowers I have seen. I place the flowers in patterns that I have found in many natural arrangements. Anyway,  I hope to get past my hesitations soon and get started.

I was out of gesso but it arrived a few days ago so I have primed the board.  I can’t believe how different the gesso is.  It looks like whipped cream. I guess there is a change in how it is made these days.

Time to step away from the disheartening news regarding the pandemic.  I am discouraged by all the hype that it is a hoax to interfere with the upcoming presidential election.  I hope people do not fall for that.  This virus is nothing like the flu.  Don’t fall for the line that it is not a devastating illness. It is. Stay safe!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Got out The Pen and Ink and Where is that Snickers?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, I did something today that I have not done in many years.  I got out my pen and ink supplies and finished a pen and ink drawing I started a long time ago.  I am anxious to get back to my oil painting work but I have a number of old pieces that I have been meaning to complete.  That was quite an experience.  I demonstrated part of the work on my latest Youtube and was so surprised the ink didn’t run down my hand. 

Pen and ink drawings are done sitting down but my Youtube set-up is vertical. I decided to give it a try and didn’t have any problems.  I’ll never forget demonstrating pen and ink in my Hands on Art Appreciation class years ago.  I didn’t have the great computer set-up that came later so I taped a piece of paper on the black board and demonstrated that way.  Of course, the ink ran down my arm which is embarrassing in front of fifty people. 

I actually had fifty students at a time try pen and ink with ink wells on their desk.  When someone accidentally dumped the ink well all over the desk and floor I realized I should give them tape to secure the well.  Much to my surprise there would always be at least one student that would knock the well off even though it was taped down.  So I wisely switched to a fine point sharpee and had them buy them, too. 

Teaching can be quite an adventure, especially for people like me that try unusual approaches in a lecture room.  Anyway, I don’t have the finished drawing uploaded to my portfolio yet but I have included another one of my pen and ink drawings below. Check it out!

Also, the pandemic is still a very serious threat to all of us. Please take the doctor video below very seriously!

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I got a laugh out of the response to a joke I shared on Facebook.  As I have mentioned before I do two things to keep my weight down and I got Clyde to do the same thing. We eat a balanced diet and we count calories.  I saw such a cute joke with Miss Piggy about junk food that I had to share it.

I have an eating disorder. I am about to eat dis order of fries, dis order of wings, and dis order of nuggets.

Here is my friend’s response.

Not you. Junk never passes your lips.

True, but I couldn’t resist sharing this! So cute! Now, where did I put that snickers bar?

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Has a Suggestion…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Wow, I am sitting on my hands when I come across certain posts on Facebook. As I said I am no longer posting rebuttal comments because I don’t think they help and I just get called offensive names by people that disagree.

Still, I would like to say here where I think most, if not all of my followers are like-minded people, that we need to fact check some of the outrageous claims by some people on Facebook.  If you think that the Swine Flu was worse than Covid-19 so we shouldn’t have to wear masks or close schools since that didn’t happen with the Swine Flu, please look up the rebuttal articles. 

Covid-19 is much worse and it is not on the way out any time soon.  On a good note, I am having a great time going back to older work that I wanted to change in some ways.  Still getting some clean up work done and hiding out with my family. 

I feel like we are in a prison but it really is a nice prison!  Hope we will be sprung in 2021. Cheers and stay safe!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Out and A Flaming Torch…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Lot of interesting posts on Facebook that I am not going to comment on.  I don’t want to be called names by people that disagree with my opinions so I will just voice my opinions in like minded groups where I won’t be verbally attacked. 

A friend suggested I do that and I am going to consider his advice to be a “boat” I should take.  I love that joke about someone in imminent danger that wouldn’t take help because he knew God would get him out of the mess. The situation involved possible drowning and one friend came with a boat for him.  When he didn’t survive, he asks God why he didn’t help him. God answers that he sent him all those people  but he wouldn’t take any help. 

So, I am taking this boat and I think it is sad that many of us are verbally attacked on Facebook by people that insist their opinion is the correct one. 

Back to what I love, my artwork.  I am still working on some unfinished pieces from years ago and it is a great experience.  Lots of memories, some good and some bad. 

Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man, Clyde Kessler

Here is one I hesitate to put in writing but I think it is right on the money regarding our political climate right now.  Hope no one is offended but this is  just some humor. No one needs to take it seriously.

Clyde believes that all people are jackasses at least once in their lives but there are some that are flaming jackasses and the torch remains lit throughout their lives. 

LOL!

Still taking flack off of Facebook people but I will not stay out of the problems the US is in right now.  I do not think the reports of death from Covid-19 are falsified and they can in no way compare to our annual influenza deaths. 

I think all these posts that masks don’t work are wrong and I will continue to say that.  I will continue to share posts about how we need to take this virus seriously rather than think it is a hoax designed to harm Trump’s chances of winning a second term.  This is still America and I have just as much right to my opinion as the people that think I am wrong. 

Two people said God help us if I ever get elected president.  What a ridiculous thing to say.  I never said I was considering running for a political office. 

Anyway, I am having a great time going back to some drawings from many years ago that were never finished.  I decided it was time to take a break from mineral spirit fumes and get into some other mediums.  As I have said before, I have never met an artistic medium that I did not like.  Right now I am finishing a graphite drawing from my school days. Glad I still have it!

Please check out my latest video and keep the peace if possible!

Life with The Word and Bird Man, Clyde Kessler

Some of the funny things Clyde says are especially funny to me because his humor is unlike any humor I have ever known. 

Both of us are getting so tired of hair loss commercials.  There are a lot of guys that shave their head on purpose these days so what’s wrong with being bald?

Anyway, Clyde said they should look in the mirror and hold up a watermelon next to their head.  They might think they really have hair after that. 

Weird humor, but I love it!

So pleased to find a great home for one of my personal favorites, Tulip Burst.  I mailed it yesterday after taking a few more files of it.  Really sorry to see that one go, but, as I say all the time, I can’t take them with me. I decided to leave a file of it here again with the link for prints.  I can’t explain why I think this is such a strong painting but it has to do with a quality that I strive to achieve in all my work. 

When I was working for my MFA a professor said to me that a critic once said great artwork has a sensuous surface.  Pretty sure I  mentioned this before but it bears repeating.  I always think of this when I paint and I think this surface is especially sensuous.  

As I was going over my mailing list I thought I had better check out a great Virginia patron that bought three of my large paintings and hired me for a commission. I didn’t know her age but she was certainly over forty.  Her husband was a Forestry professor and they both were great people. 

I checked the obituaries and saw that she and her husband had passed away.  I know she had children and I hope my paintings will go to them.  Artwork gets passed around but as long as it is some where it can be seen that is enough for me. 

Be sure to check out this weeks video above and the Safe Grocery Shopping one below if you haven’t seen it. This pandemic is far from over.

Life with The Word and Bird Man, Clyde Kessler

I cannot believe how fast time is going now. It seems like Monday goes into Friday with the snap of my fingers.  Clyde is also amazed at how quickly the days go by.  I told him I didn’t just want to seize the day.  I want to clobber it into submission and tell it to sit still for a few minutes!
