Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is ending 2015 on Another Technology Rant…


Please click on my Youtube!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

My back is much better today so I am working away and ranting about the problems associated with technology.  I have come very close to hurling my wireless mouse out the window.  It keeps cutting off.  Lost signal.  Sometimes it cuts off  a few seconds after the signal is restored.

That’s the first argh. 

The second one is about my video software.  I figured out how to change the speed of the video but it stops every so often with an announcement that the software is at work modifying it.  I don’t know if that grey sign will be there when I export it because for some strange reason it won’t export when I hit export.

Oh well. It is New Years Eve and I should try to celebrate and enjoy the evening.  I will do that as soon as I can tear myself away from the machine that helps and aggravates at the same time.

 

Cheers!  Happy New Year!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, New Florals, and Looking for the Light again!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please check out my latest Youtube!  I am so pleased that I can add music again.  I think they are much better that way.

I have been going through my portfolio to show my florals.  Today I thought I would show two brand new ones that are part of my series, Suggestions.  These are paintings that I am doing based on an Abstract Expressionist surface.  When I see a shape I go with it and develop a colorful, abstract painting.

Petal Play is another sensuous, colorful painting from my series,
Suggestions. I am starting with an abstract expressionist surface and then looking for forms that appear in the paint. This time I saw two large flowers in the position that I have them in the painting. They look like a cross between a petunia and morning glory. I am very pleased with the color in this one.

A Vase of Color   Original Acrylic Painting     NFS

A Vase of color is another sensuous, colorful painting from my series,
Suggestions. I am starting with an abstract expressionist surface and then looking for forms that appear in the paint. This time I saw a rounded shape at the bottom so I turned the painting into a soft focus floral. I am very pleased with the flowing, circular motion in this one.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

It has been quite cloudy lately so the light in my studio is not what I want it to be.  As I have mentioned before, when it is very dark outside the warm colors are hard to see so I end up with stronger warms than I want.  I sure do have to look for the light to work. 

I remember reading about Pierre Bonnard when he was instructing a child he thought had talent.  He remarked that they had to work before the good light was gone.

When you work with a zillion colors light is extremely important.  This is not a problem for my naturalist husband who doesn’t mind getting up in the middle of the night to catch the owls for bird counts.  The stereotype of the bird watcher is completely false.  They are rugged people that walk up and down mountains in brutal weather for accurate records.

 

I think I will quit griping about the light and get to work.  My studio is very comfortable.

I Figured it Out!


Please click on my latest Youtube!

 

I finally figured out why I could not add music to my recent youtubes and still have my original audio!  It doesn’t make any sense to me but I am learning just to click here, click there and something will turn up.

 

I was uploading videos, adjusting the color and contrast, and then adding the music.  This time I added the music first and my original audio is still there!   Yes!!!  Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks!

Here are two more of my paintings that are based on paintings I have seen in my sleep.  I have a lot of nightmares but I also have a lot of great dreams.  I don’t try to figure them out but I am always glad when I dream of someone that has passed on.  This happens a lot and my father and my grandparents live in my dreams.  It is great to see them again and the dreams are almost always happy ones.

Dream River     Original  25″ x 40″ Oil Painting      $2025

Prints on Canvas and Greeting Cards Available at    KENDALL KESSLER ART

 

Dream River is typical of these paintings.  There is usually a lot of this icy blue color and objects seem to sway around the space. Water is one of my favorite subject matters in my work so I am not surprised that I dream of river paintings.  I often dream I am at the beach in the ocean.

I especially like this one.  There is something about the girl’s eyes that is mystical. I have always leaned towards  scientific explantions of strange events but I like to quote this line from Hamlet.  There are more things in heaven and earth , Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosphy.

 

Towhee Hill Studio Visits

 

I wanted to be sure to let readers know that I do schedule studio visits.  I like to show people my work in a home environment.  My work looks best when it is illuminated from outside natural light and in incandescent light.

I do require a phone call so I can make sure the visitor won’t trip in my studio and to make sure I have out any particular works  the visitor is interested in. 

Give me a call or leave a comment here and I will get back to you as soon as possible
