I will paint today no matter what. Christmas preparations make it even harder for me to get to my work but I do get there. Have to paint. I couldn’t manage it yesterday between my computer work and two important classes. Can’t miss Yoga and Line Dance. So I will have a great Holiday attitude as I am throwing some oil paint around. Cheers!
Emerging Hawk First Stage 20″ x 16″ Oil Painting NFS
Clyde is coming down with some sort of bug and not very funny right now so I decided to look on the internet for Christmas jokes and found a great site! Here is the link and a few examples of the kind of goofy humor I love!
I am stepping away from the computer today! Today I have both Yoga and Line Dance class to get me out of here! I do not carry my work with me in the form of a laptop, i-pad, or phone. When I am away, I am really away! Got to get a lot done before that happens, but it will happen! Yes!!!!
I am so pleased to be starting a new Kendall Expressions painting in oils! I usually do these in acrylics but my two favorite ones were done in oils so I decided to get back to very expressive oils. This one will be in my Kendall Expressions Gallery and Stages of my Art Gallery.
I just put up the first stage and I think it reproduced very well in spite of all the problems I just had with my camera. I hope there is nothing wrong with my trusty camera. Anyway, check out the first stage!
Our house is very dry right now. Clyde bought a new vaporizer that he hasn’t set up yet because he thinks he will need to buy a table for it so it will be easier to manage.
Mean while I am reminded of one of those Maxine comics that I saw on Facebook today. Maxine says that age may have slowed her down but not shut her up.
Clyde and I don’t usually snore that much but with the dry house I can definitely say age has not shut us up. I can’t believe all the wierd snoring noises I hear from Clyde and he says I am sawing quite a load of wood.
I think that vaporizer will be set up soon or we will have to sleep at opposite ends of the house.
If you like my work but don’t have any more room on your walls be sure to check out my paintings on just about anything but the kitchen sink on
I am real pleased to add another state to my list of locations for my artwork! A great Nebraska patron bought a print of Red Eyed Hoot! Now I have artwork in 26 states, Canada, Germany, England, Australia, and Russia! My work marches on!
Beautiful day for the Radford Christmas parade! We will be sure to see the great floats so I need to work double time so I can get out of the house. Yesterday I actually left for two hours to do some Christmas shopping! Who says a workaholic can’t take a little time off?
Artwork is very expensive to ship. I am so pleased to announce that today only there is no shipping fee for prints of my work on Fine Art America! So today my Special Promotions below are 40% off and shipped free! What a great offer! Don’t miss out!
Still having a great time on my current painting! I have been putting up details on Instagram and getting great comments! Be sure to join me there!

As usual Clyde is out Bird Watching. He is still uploading records to Cornell. It is cold out there but nothing stops him. I am so glad he is careful about hunters this time of the year. He is in a State Park today that does not allow hunters except on rare occasions and then the park is closed.
When Hunting Season comes around I am reminded of a Muppets skit where two hunters are bragging about what they shot. One said, “I shot me a tractor!” The other one said, “Well, I got me a dump truck!” Love those skits! No offense to hunters!
I don’t have anything from The Word Man today, at least, not anything that I can print. He sure does come up with some great political comments but we would both like to stay alive.
There are a lot of funnies about Christmas trees on Facebook right now! My favorite has a picture of a sad looking dog in front of a fallen tree. The caption reads, “Thank goodness you are home. The tree fainted!”
I am so pleased to sell yet another print of Reaching Out to a great Georgia patron! This is my best seller and is still featured on The Mindy Project on HULU! The show was on FoxTV for three seasons and is now on the internet!
Also, I actually figured out how to copyright my paintings on my Android phone and put them on Instagram! I didn’t even look at the tutorial! Who says you can’t teach an old dog new tricks! I did it! No one helped me!

Such a beautiful Monday! Colder than a well diggers butt in Alaska but the light is gorgeous! Looking forward to all the work I have to do today. It is a good think I am a workaholic. Especially looking forward to painting on my new ocean painting! Love the mountains and love the shore!
Over the years Clyde and I have had a horrible times with pests. The roaches in our first apartment were unbelievable. Before we left on a trip one time Clyde donned a mask and blasted the whole kitchen with roach spray. I called him The Lone Roacher. It worked. We never saw another roach after that.
Our house has been another story. We have done battle with roaches and ants for most of the years we have lived here. We finally got rid of the roaches but the ants always pay us a visit as soon as the weather is warm.
Now we are having problems with a wheat eating moth.
The other night I was talking about all the problems we have had with pests. Right after I said they have been incredibly strong and resistant Clyde said thank you.
I can always count on that pest to turn a conversation around and make it funny. For the record, Clyde was not one of the pests I was not talking about. LOL
I just don’t have the time to put much of a blog up today. Running around in circles and saying hi to myself as I pass by. Hope to do better tomorrow! Got to get everything done so I can get to Yoga tonight. Got to stretch out these muscles before they tighten up into knots that hurt!
Please click on my Youtube! One more time. I am determined to get to a new one up tomorrow.
I don’t know where the day goes but this one shot by like a rocket! I worked this morning on the computer, painted, walked and got back on the computer. I am not taking it with me in the form of a I-pad which I do own but hardly ever use. Talk about a monkey on our backs! Too much computer stuff! Time to find a DVD!
