I am on the third layer of my latest Kendall Expressions painting!  I have added a lot of linear accents and some color modifications.  I have signed it  but I am not sure if I want to change a few more things.  It is always hard to know when it is done.  I never get exactly what I want but I do get close!

 Work in Progress

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Years ago someone mentioned to me that women often become more and more like their mothers as they age.  I was thinking about that the other day when I was brushing my teeth for the umpteenth  time.  I can’t believe that I decided to ask Clyde what he thought about that saying as I flossed  my teeth.

My mother brushes her teeth four times a day and uses a different brush each time.  They she flosses and uses a water pick.  She says it takes her twenty minutes to do this due to her bridge work.  Of course, her determination to keep her teeth perfectly clean is also a reason for the duration of the event.

So I am standing in the kitchen with dental floss in my teeth asking Clyde is I was becoming more and more like my mother!  Well, that’s a big duh!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I am still working on my Suggestions Series!  I have no intention of stopping.  I am working on my Blue Ridge paintings at the same time and will have another Autumn Parkway painting up soon!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Strange thing happened this evening.  We were watching TV when we both heard a strange sound.  I soon realized it was my stomach growling since I was very hungry.  Clyde said it sounded like a distant car crash.  Well, that’s a new one!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, More Favorite Florals, and it Won’t do me any Damage…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Be sure to click on my latest Youtube!

I am still going through my portfolio for florals to show here.  I like to use a theme on WordPress and I have a lot of florals.  Chinese Orchids is one of my favorite florals!  The sensuous surface and magenta/green contrast go together so beautifully in this work!

Orange Trumpet Flower is an intense impasto painting.  The surface is quite elevated and I am especially pleased with the flowing motion in this one.

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

A few days ago I mentioned a bruise between my knuckles on my left hand.  I suggested to my husband that maybe I smacked him when we were asleep.  His reply was that was why he sleeps to well.  Well, yesterday I found a large bruise on the big toe on my right foot so I suggested to my husband that maybe I kicked him the other night when he was causing the walls to fall down with his snoring. 

He doesn’t snore often but when he does, look out!  His reply was that kicking him wouldn’t do me any good and definitely no damage to him.  Is that the reply of a hard head? 

LOL

I am so stressed for time today and I want to be sure to promote my specials before they are over at 5:00 that I am just going to show one favorite floral.  Got to work on a new Youtube while the guys are out of the house.  It is hard to make a Youtube with TVs blaring away!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

The other day right after painting I noticed a purple patch between one of my knuckles on the left hand.  I knew right away that it wasn’t paint.  It was sore to the touch.  I do not remember doing anything to cause a bruise so I said to Clyde that maybe I smacked him in my sleep with the back of my hand.  His immediate response was  sure, that is why I sleep so well.  Joker!

I am still having a great time with my new Series, Suggestions!  These paintings are based on nebulous shapes I see as I paint an abstract work.

I am very pleased with them all, but I think this one is my favorite so far!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

 

“Roanoke Beauty” is a small painting of Happy Hollow Ground Park in Roanoke, VA. This painting was sold out of Towhee Hill Studio. It is a colorful, textural view of a beautiful park ground. The boards are viewing platforms for visitors. This is one of many New River sites that have been inspirations for my paintings. I especially like to find sites with flowers so I will have a lot of color interaction.

 

Now that my husband is off until 2015 ,is he sleeping in rather than getting up at 4:30?  No way.  He is still getting up and checking on the various bird and wildlife species in Radford, VA.  No matter what the weather, the Bird Man is always outside doing what he loves.  I went on just part of a Christmas Bird Count many years ago and thought I would freeze to death.  I admire these people, but it is just not for me.

I couldn’t agree more with the old saying that what is heaven to one person is hell to another.  I’m sure there are plenty of people that would like to do anything rather than stand up at an easel for hour after hour.  That is my heaven but it is a job and does take a lot of discipline.  It is just like playing a musical instrument.  You have to put in a lot of time every day to accomplish a work of art.  I love my job but I could find a lot of other things to do.  I truly do live to paint and  I will be in there soon!

The Bad Weather Must Hold Off Until Saturday!


Please click on my latest Youtube!  I will have another one up tomorrow or Saturday.

 

When I was in school my class mates and I had a show and made posters  to attract viewers.  Someone in the Art Department decided to be funny and drew comic things on one poster.  On my picture a chain was drawn around my waist. A Brush was on the end of it and in my hand.  That certainly was true! 

 

Still, I do get away from the easel once in a while and a bunch of us Line Dancers are going to a club to dance tomorrow night!  Bad weather is on the way and I hope it doesn’t happen tomorrow!  Got to dance!  CHEERS!

Please click on my Youtube!

Working away and pleased to have uploaded another Youtube!  I will share it here when the revisions are completed.  I hope I can add music but I haven’t been able to for quite a few now so I think I will look on the internet for other ways to add music.  Youtube won’t let me have my voice and the music at the same time anymore.  Wish I knew why.
