Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Sanitizing every thing in sight and The Unfriendly Ghost…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Beautiful day.  I am seeing more and more signs of life outside. I am still sanitizing every thing that can be sanitized.  People are being great about keeping their distance. My husband is in the back checking out bird populations which is something he lives for.  I, of course, paint and play my piano. 

I finally understand how to work my new recording gizmo and will soon have a Youtube of my shore work with my own piano music.  I wrote a piece a while back and had it copyrighted.  Youtube has some nice music but I want to add my own like I did when I first started uploading to my channel.  Now, I have better recording equipment so I am looking forward to some great videos! 

Be sure sure to check out my channel which is Kendall Kessler.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I are both amazed at certain groups of people that refuse to participate in social distancing during this crisis.  When I went to Kroger today a store clerk asked me if I wanted to have my shopping cart sanitized.  I said yes and thank you!  She said she has to ask first because some customers don’t want their cart sanitized. They think the Covad-19 is a hoax. 

Also, there are reports of pastors that are still holding church services.  Why can’t they hold their services over the internet? 

Clyde said if he dies as the result of people that refuse to take precautions he is going to come back as a ghost and haunt them.  Shoelaces are going to be untied and tied over and over again.  Phone chargers will be unplugged.  Plates of food will mysteriously fall to the floor face down.  Look out!  The Word and Bird Man will get you if you don’t do your best to keep from getting this disease and spreading it to others! 

LOL!  Important to laugh at a time like this.  Stay safe everyone!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Getting used to being a Shut In and Bad Decisions…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, my naturalist husband is still getting out.  He is being careful to steer clear of other people but he is getting out.  I am just going to the grocery store when needed but when it gets a little warmer I will take a walk in beautiful Wildwood Park. 

We are very fortunate in that we have what we need and are just staying inside.  Like my favorite Virus joke says, For the first time in human history we can save the world’s people by lying on the floor and watching T.V.  Let’ not screw this up. 

I am certainly doing my part but I am not on the floor for TV.  I reserve that space for Yoga.  My great teacher is sending us sessions on the computer which works just fine!  I can’t seem to find ones that I like so far on youtube.  I either find ones that aren’t much more than sleeping on the floor or I find ones that have so many Downward Facing Dogs that I almost start barking. My teacher always has great sessions and I am sure she can use the money so most of my yoga stuff is with her. 

Be sure to check out my latest Dallas Texas skyline painting Demo Youtube above and stay safe!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I were trying to order hand sanitizer online.  Actually I was trying to order it and had a hard time deciding what kind to get so I got Clyde online to do it.  There were so many selections and Clyde asked me which ones I want. 

I don’t know.  I am not good at making decisions.  I married you. 

Ha ha. 

Now you know I am just kidding. 

Well, all online hand sanitizers are sold out so it doesn’t matter which one to select.  There aren’t any.  

Well, we may not be able to get any hand sanitizer but I still have you! 

My mind reels with sarcastic replies. 

I think I better get back to the studio before I get into any more trouble.

LOL!

I wish we were at an open beach right now, virus free.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell Prints of Sunflower Burst and Kindergarteners Rock!

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Not getting out much but I did want to buy a new thermometer.  Of course, our digital one decided to retire and I went to two Drug stores and surprise, surprise!  They were all out.  On well,  we seem to be okay and if I have to go to the store I wear gloves that get drowned in boiling water when I get home.   This is awful but we can’t complain that much.  We aren’t hurting for anything except a thermometer that works and I always have more than enough to do all the time. 

I am so pleased that people continue to look at my work and buy originals and prints.  A great Kansas patron bought three prints of one of my most vibrant florals, Sunflower Burst!  This time the prints are on carry-all pouches. It is fun to think of all the items that have been bought with my artwork on them!  Most of my sales are originals and wall art prints but prints on just about anything can be purchased. 

I am very excited about starting a small wildflower painting tomorrow!  I always enjoy painting wildflowers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde doesn’t have a Facebook personal account and doesn’t visit the site but I do, so I like to tell him about the jokes that I see on it.  There is a lot of great humor there! 

Recently someone posted that since we have learned to wash our hands now we can go on to colors and shapes! 

Clyde said he could hold up a pillow and say one, then hold up an identical pillow and say two, and so on. 

Maybe we do need to get back to that great informative book, “All I really need to know, I learned in Kindergarten”.  I should probably brush up on that book myself. LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell a Print of Tall Blue Vase and Dinosaur Bones?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, I am not going stir crazy yet but I am not getting out much.  I am worried about the virus and have been washing my hands all the time now.  I have to go grocery shopping but I figured out a way to do that with minimal contamination. 

I try to keep my distance from other shoppers as much as possible and I wear gloves.  I sanitize my hands before I put the gloves on.  Then when I get home I take them off and sanitize my hands again so I can pick the gloves up and put them in the wash.  I hope that helps. 

We don’t have a reported case here but I have heard we don’t have the testing kits so there may be cases that are not documented. I never thought I would see the day that the whole world is quarantined. 

Anyway, I have a new video up on my latest Dallas Skyline Painting.  It is very short because the demo tape I made didn’t work out.  I was just about done when the camera messed up so I made a short video of the painting and my latest Blue Ridge painting. 

Looking forward to a new oil painting as I continue to paint acrylic skylines and other abstracts.

I am very pleased to sell a large metal print of Tall Blue Vase to a great Texas patron!  Check it out below!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I love Russel Stover pecan sandies.  We consider them to be a staple and I hate it when we run out. Kroger used to have big bags of them but now they just have small boxes. 

I was so surprised to see them on sale for $1.50 so I bought one hoping they were not stale.  I figured they would be good but Clyde said watch out for dinosaur bones.

Okay, I know exaggeration is one of the key components of humor but dinosaur bones in candy?  I think that is a bit much. LOL!

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, I couldn’t miss Line Dance Class today so when I arrived I put sanitizer on my hands.  Then I put gloves on and kept them on during the whole class.  I stood six feet away from each dancer. 

When I got in my car to leave I took the sanitizer out again, took off my gloves and put that stuff on again. 

When I got home I put the gloves in the wash.  I hope that did it.  I don’t want to stop living to keep from dying but the Rec Center where the classes are held may shut down.  I think most everyone else is smarter than me regarding this pandemic. 

On well.  I have the CDS from out performances and it doesn’t take much room to dance away.  Now the question is whether or not I go to Yoga class tomorrow.  Anyway, I finished my latest Blue Ridge painting of a Wintergreen Sunset.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde told me a long time ago that when retired he would get some sophisticated equipment to record bird songs.  Now he says he probably won’t do that. 

Why? 

My hearing is not what it used to be.  A lot of Bird Watchers our age can’t hear certain bird songs. I can’t even hear a Golden Crowned Kinglet. 

Or me asking you to do the dishes.  Just joking. Clyde is great about taking turns washing the dishes and I hope he does get that equipment. 

To quote the very fun movie Galaxy Quest.  Never give up! Never surrender!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Getting Some Sleep and You want me to Leave?

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I have been having hard time sleeping lately for many reasons so last night was great! I went to bed at 10:30 and didn’t get up until 8:00!  Always good to get some much needed sleep. 

I have never been one of those people that drop right off like my husband does.  Some of us have a very hard time turning off our minds.  I am not surprised that I remember a lot of whacky dreams since I don’t sleep that well. 

Anyway, I am looking into my next painting idea and I  put up my Monday video on Youtube! Be sure to check it out.  I decided to go back to some Skyline Beauty paintings and the first one is of Dallas Texas. 

I decided to make myself take a simpler approach and I like the way it turned out.  Be sure to click on it.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I was feeling a little down the other day so naturally I wanted to get some cheering up from Clyde so I lied down next to him in the bedroom where he was watching T.V.

I want you to do something to cheer me up.

Leave?

No. 

Well, at least I didn’t look in the mirror and complain about how old I look and then asked him to say something nice and his response was, “Well, your eyesight is perfect.” 

Love that joke!  Important to laugh every day!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Getting Run Over by Technology and New Legal Term…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Argh, argh and argh again!  I am so tired of being run over by technology.  Now my phone is acting up and it is a new one.  I always get help from my husband when I have to contact the provider for help.  If I don’t I may start heaving things around the room in total exasperation. 

What really aggravates me is we spend fifty minutes trying to get help and have to just say bye on the chat.  It always goes this way.  I explain the problem and am given a solution which does not the apply to the problem. Then the agent goes through a bunch of other solutions that don’t work and then just repeats the first solution. 

That is when I want to start chucking things.  Oh well, I figured a way around the problem and will just go with it.  I don’t want another fifty minute useless chat.  We could call but then we can’t understand the representative because of the thick accent.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I may have to appear in court for the first time and I have been thinking of all the things that people can’t say on the stand. Hey, I have seen lots and of lots of Judge Judy! 

One word keeps coming to mind that we have all heard.  Hearsay.  I think of all the things I could say which would be labeled hearsay. 

Then I thought of some other things I shouldn’t say and decided I had come up with a new legal word!  I had to tell Clyde.  He hadn’t heard it before. 

There is Hearsay and then there is Stupidsay.  I better avoid both of them if at all possible!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Happy Again and What about the ones in Congress?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, once again I decided on a different direction with a painting that was fighting me and then all of a sudden it started talking to me and cried uncle.  I finally resolved the problems I was having with the spacing and atmospheric effect.  As usual, I sort of know how I got to that point but not really. 

Painting is always an adventure unless the painter follows formulaic devices.  I would quit rather than take that approach.  Anyway, there is something different about the surface quality that I am very pleased with and will probably quit soon before I over work it. 

Any of this make sense to you?  It would if you had a paint brush strapped to you like me.  You have to really love art to put up with all the problems but it is so great when they get out into the world.  As I always say,  I can’t take them with me. 

Cheers on a Monday!  Check out my Monday youtube!  I decided to paint one more on a paper towel. Fun experience!

Yesterday we were watching a cute little girl on TV holding a skunk.  She claimed she would not be sprayed since she was not a threat to the skunk.  I had a hard time believing that and figured the glands had been removed which I know can be done.  Anyway, she gave the figures for the skunk population in the US and the skunk made me think of Congress. 

I’ll bet those numbers don’t include the skunks in Congress. 

Clyde said some of those skunks would scare a skunk sprayless. 

Right. 

Just kidding. I’m sure there are some hard working members of Congress but I’ll bet it does stink at times in there.

Well,  my latest painting took a nose dive off a Blue Ridge cliff.  After all I wrote about how well it was going it decided to turn into an arm wrestling painting.  Oh well.  This happens and when it does I always repeat the following.  

Paintings will drive you crazy if you let them.  Don’t let them drive you crazy.  I never do. At least I think I am sane.

I have been to this point before and scrap the approach I was using, try something else and usually it turns out great and I have no idea how I got to the end. 

I know that sounds strange but it is not strange to another painter.  They know what I am talking about unless they have a formula they follow with every painting which would be so boring to me that I would quit painting.  I have known a few painters that do that, but not many. 

Most painters sort of know what they are doing but not really and every painting is a learning experience. 

I will get in there tomorrow and fight the colorful fight.  Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Now that Clyde and I share the dishes 50-50 I like to tease him sometimes.  Yesterday the kitchen looked so good after he finished that I asked him if he had help. 

Oh yeah.  Some guy came in here and did them for me.

Did he leave a bill? 

No, he just did the dishes and walked out.

I wish he would do that for me.  I am going to have to include this in my blog. 

Argh!!  I am going to just stop talking. 

Now you know you will never do that.  You told me once the name Clyde means heard from afar and you are right here with all your pearls of wisdom.

And again, arghhhh!!!!

Sometimes a painting experience is over the top! My latest Blue Ridge painting looked so good in the second stage that I was worried I would lose the strong effect in the next phase.  Was I ever wrong!  I am achieving the most complex painting that I have ever done and I will be shoving any impediment to work to get to it tomorrow.

I don’t think extreme attention to detail necessarily makes for a successful painting.  There will always be so much more to painting than trying to represent what I see that can’t really be represented due to the constant change of light and shade throughout the day. That is why I work from a photograph that I took of a specific moment that I want to embellish.

I put myself into the work with decisions about color and texture that are sometimes in the photograph and sometimes my reaction to the paint as it is applied to the surface. 

Anyway, back to detail.  I do like to get as much detail as possible in these atmospheric landscapes because of the beautiful colors that occur as I work on tricky areas.  It is not really about the detail. It is about the color and I am getting more color than ever before! 

Looking forward to tomorrow’s session.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I doubt that everyone remembers the Pet Rock Craze from the seventies.  The guy that came up with this crazy pet idea walked away with 15 million for it.  The rocks came in boxes with air holes.  Anyway, it was quite an amazing marketing trend that didn’t last long.

Well the other day I was going back to work on all my computer chores and Clyde said have fun. 

I jokingly said I have a lot of fun working on the computer but I’m not sure the computer is happy about it. 

I have seen pet rocks have more fun than computers. 

I’m sure if a computer could talk it would agree!
