As always this blog is about my artwork and, yes, one of the purposes is to sell it.  My artwork is extremely important to me and in order to make it I have to sell it.  As I have said may times I can’t take them with me and I want them to exist after I am gone.  Having said that I have decided to continue to talk about my work AND to start paying more attention to what is going on around me.  I tend to hide in my own world. 

I am going to start giving my opinions about other things that are happening starting with this Jussie Smollet news item.  Either way this is an awful event.  If the actor was attacked by people that want to equate racism and homophobia with Make America Great Again then I am appalled that there are people that think that way.  If the actor made up this attack I am appalled that he would do that to get attention for himself or to bring more emphasis to a terrible trend among some citizens of this country. 

I can only hope people that equate the slogan Make America Great Again with hate will come to their senses. 

There.  Opinion stated and now I have to get back to a lot of art promotion on the internet.  My latest wildflower painting is in the third stage and coming along without intense aggravation.  I keep wondering when it will start acting up but I think this one is smooth sailing.  Yes!!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Last night I was watching a commercial that asked people why they didn’t take something to improve their brain since they take medications to improve their body.

I asked Clyde that question and he said taking a medication to improve his brain would by like spitting water melon seeds at a tyrannosaurus rex and expecting it to stop charging.

I think we will continue to be as drug free as possible.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Happy she is not Arm Wrestling and Lock the Door…

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I am still waiting for the arm wrestling on my latest painting.  I am amazed at how cooperative it has been so far.  I think there is a demon hiding behind my storage bin that is just waiting to come out and pounce.  I hope not.  Nothing wrong with a painting that comes along quietly without my pulling out a gun and putting it out of its misery. 

I have been at this far too long to get that mad at a painting.  I wish I had some of the ones I thought were losers when I was too hard on myself. 

Glad I got over that nonsense.  I have won many awards from prominent people and I now agree with them.  I think my work will last!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Last night Clyde was watching How to Train a Dragon.  Such an unusual movie!  The one that looked like a cat was especially strange. 

I asked Clyde what could I do to train him? 

Throw me out the front door and lock it? 

How would that tame you? 

I don’t know.  I guess you will have to try it and see. 

Too cold out there and I don’t think it would do much good anyway.  LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is on the Wildflower Path and Where is the Cup?

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

Still happy with my latest wildflower painting.  I have finished the second stage and will add it to my website on Fine Art America where prints can be purchased.  I have been posting my stages for a while now and prints have been bought of different layers of a painting that no longer exist.  This is a great way to preserve the journey through a painting. 

The first stage is usually the easiest.  The arm wrestling tends to happen in  later layers. I work until I am pleased with each stage.  I just know it needs more.   This one is coming along without much aggravation so far.  I think I will paint one more wildflower painting and then move on to something else. 

Love to paint!  Live to paint!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

We have had quite a few things go wrong in the last two years.  The biggest one was the new roof.  I think we are experiencing the Fall of the House of Kessler.  Just joking.  Now, my coffee pot has blitzed out.  The water won’t go through the pipe thingy.  Anyway,  it was a cheap one so I am thinking of getting a better model. 

Clyde says the more expensive ones have gotten too complicated. 

I don’t want one that has to contact China to find out where the cup is. 

Ha ha.  I think we will manage.

Getting ready for Thanksgiving with my husband’s family. Usually I just bring a desert but this time I am bringing everything.  My mother-in-law is not up to it this year. It is about time she took a break and I am bringing a lot of stuff that I hope doesn’t come back home to me. 

Since several family members don’t like turkey so I am bringing turkey and ham and a lot of other traditional dishes.  Looking forward to seeing everybody and I am not setting my scale back ten pounds as is advised on Facebook.  I just won’t step on it for a few days. It doesn’t matter that much.  I don’t stuff myself at holiday meals.  I love to eat and eating too much ruins the experience for me. 

Anyway, hope everyone has a great Thanksgiving!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I sent Clyde on a art supplies mission the other day.  The best store for art supplies in this area is in Blacksburg where he works.  I wrote down what I needed very carefully but I explained the brush I needed several times.  I needed a no. 4 round ox hair oil paint brush, not a flat one. 

I told him several times there are flat ones and there are round ones. 

Yes, and there is partial brain dead and completely brain dead.  I am the latter. 

Ha ha.  You can do it.  Just think of the frown on my face if you get it wrong. 

Okay.  Now I have incentive.  I won’t get it wrong. 

That’s the spirit!

My latest painting is thankfully past the driving-me-crazy stage and I am starting to see how it will work out.  Unless readers of this post paint, I am sure no one knows what I am talking about. That’s okay.  There are a lot of things I don’t understand but have great respect for.  Physics is one of those things.  Chemistry is another. Actually I am not well versed in Science at all. 

I know I use a lot of Math that can’t really be put into a formula except for Linear Perspective so I don’t think I am as ignorant of that science as I am of the others.  I really love the arts.  If I had more time I would study other things, especially History.  I think learning really is it’s own reward.  I believe if people studied more we could solve a lot of problems. 

Anyone listening to me?  I hope so.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Last Thursday I braved the icy roads that were mostly slush to go to Yoga class.  I should have known it would be closed.  When I got home, I checked the website and the later class was still on so I went out again an hour later with my mat in the pouring rain.  Of course, it was closed.  Instead of the website I should have check my phone that had a message that it was called off due to weather. 

The next class was on Friday but it was a class for Moms and their babies.  I told Clyde they probably would not want me without a baby. 

Yeah, the mother’s might throw one at you. 

That’s ridiculous.  The baby might get hurt. 

You’re right. The babies would throw bottles and rattles at you. 

I stayed home.
