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!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

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.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Unhappy about Wintergreen painting and Did he Leave a Bill?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

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!!!!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Excited about Wintergreen painting and A Pet Rock is Happier…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

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!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Fighting Ants Again…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I have been battling ants today.  We have a lot of trouble with ants so I went to work scrubbing the table and floor where they have congregated the most. They are also on the counters and having a big party in the bathroom.  I guess toothpaste is where the action is.

Anyway, I did a lot of the Yoga table top pose today and thought I had done some good.  An hour later they were covering up the table again.  That is when I shrewdly noticed I had not moved the plastic jar of honey.  The trail was leading right to it.  So, got rid of the honey and now there are a few stragglers wondering where the Free Food Festival is. 

Hopefully, we can eat on our table without obnoxious visitors this evening.  Fingers crossed! 

Be sure to check out my latest Youtube below.  I am real pleased with my Imaginary Butterfly!  I will have a new one of my regular work up soon  I just completed another Blue Ridge Parkway painting of the James River!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Latest Butterfly Painting and You can stay…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I tried something different this time with my latest Suggestion painting that I filmed and will present on Monday.  I had been covering the surface quickly with a large brush and then spending more time on the second stage after I dried the first stage.  This time I wanted to have more complicate systems of color like my main work so I used a small brush and took more time on the first stage.  A nebulous, and I mean nebulous butterfly seemed to show up so that is what I went with. 

The contrast between the butterfly and the background is not strong, so in the third stage I will separate the two and make it even more complicated.  Love to work with color! More than anything else, my work is about color regardless of the level of abstraction.  Looking forward to finishing the painting and I will have a link to the finished work here and in the description on the Youtube! 

I am up to 191 followers now and hope to greatly increase that number!  Cheers on a Saturday! 

Check out a representational colored pencil butterfly below.  The one I am working on is an imaginary abstract butterfly.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 A long time ago I thought it would be a good idea to buy a small house so we wouldn’t fill it up with stuff that we have to get rid of. Well, that didn’t work. I have spent years moving things out and we really need more room for all of Clyde’s records. 

A lot of his research needs to be in paper form rather than on a computer so, instead of scaling down, we will be scaling up. 

Last night when I made the very short trip from the kitchen to the other end of the house to find my glasses and other things, I thought about what it would be like in a big house. 

I told Clyde I had better sharpen up before we move. 

Well, if you get too sharp you might throw me out. 

No, you and all your stuff gets to stay.

That’s a relief.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Having Fun with an Elephant…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

Whatever happened to paper forms? Today I spent an hour and fifteen minutes trying to straighten out an online service.  The representative was very helpful and she said all the problems I was having with the form was because it is made tricky in an effort to outsmart scammers and imposters.  Yikes!  She helped me fill out the form over and over again as it was refused for one reason or another. 

After an hour I told her I was about ready to open a vein.  She laughed and then apologized for laughing.  I wasn’t offended.  It was just a joke but I was trying to indicate how frustrated I was.  I claimed victory and retreated.  Will try again another day.  ARGHHHH! 

Be sure to check out this week’s video!  I was in the mood for a Whimsy painting this time and used a fun toy elephant bank my mother-in-law gave us.  She is giving her kids some mementos from their childhood. I think I turned it into an expressive visual experience!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

Wow! Today at the Grocery store I saw something I never thought I would see again!  Someone was underneath his car working on it!  I said to what appeared to be his wife I was amazed and didn’t think anyone knew how to work on a car anymore.  She smiled and said, he can!  She looked very proud.  I don’t blame her.  Everything is so complicated today that we need all kinds of help for just about everything we depend on. 

I have no idea how to fix a computer, T.V.,refrigerator, car, etc.  The computer takeover has made it especially difficult for a lot of us.  As I have said before, if they ever computerize a bathroom, I will have to get an out house! 

Anyway, still working hard on some Suggestion paintings,  youtubes, and a new Blue Ridge Parkway painting of the James River! I think I am taking the, I live to paint statement, to new heights or lows depending on how well my feet hold out! 

Be sure to click on my latest Youtube below.  I think the conch painting turned out especially well!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with new Blue Ridge Parkway painting and Where to Pin the Note…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I am pleased with the first stage of my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting of the James.  I love to paint water.  I remember years ago reading about the friendship between Eugene Delacroix and Frederic Chopin.  Delacroix was an amateur pianist as well as a great painter so I am sure they had a lot to talk about. 

In one conversation Delacroix was attempting to explain the mysterious quality of a reflection to Chopin.  I don’t think he quite understood but I know exactly what he was talking about.  No matter how clear the reflection is, it is quite different from what it is reflecting.  There is a limpid quality that I love to work with. 

Anyway, so far, so good!  Be sure to click on my latest Demo youtube below!  I will have another one up soon!

Life with The Word and Bird Man Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I are having trouble remembering things we need to get done.  Calendars don’t help.  We forget to look at it so now we hang notes from the kitchen archway and cross them out as we get the chore finished. 

This seems to work for now.  But what happens when we are so used to the note hanging there that we forget to read it?  Not likely but possible. 

Clyde has to have eye medicine that is not optional.  The other day he was worrying about forgetting to get it. 

Maybe if we pin a note to your backside I will be sure to see it and send you for the medicine! 

Well, that takes memory problems to new lows or highs depending on where you pin the note.
