Nude Girl Drawings by a Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

  Here are some more of my Beautiful Nudes.  As I have mentioned before, one of my Beautiful Nudes, “Reaching Out”, was selected out of over 3 million works of art on Fine Art America to be on The Mindy Project.  The show has been renewed for a third season!

In this one the languid pose says it all.  I took care to apply the charcoal and conte crayon in a flowing manner that echoes the mood of the model.

I will never forget what my mother said to me when I was a teenager and had just done something stupid.  She yelled that I lived in a dream world.

Until that moment I had never realized that.  She was right and it is a great place to be!

In this one the hat on a nude model is fun and whimsical!  The bars of the chair make it appear as if the model is purposely hiding and in her own world.  The energetic shadow has a foreboding quality that makes for a great visual accent.

I hope this will be the last of the ant chronicles for this summer.  The troops have slowed down.  They aren’t marching in formation or sitting around the poison drops in a perfect circle.

Now I mostly see them peeking out from behind objects on the counter.  The other day a bunch of them were criss-crossing on one of the counters.  Since they were moving in a random fashion I decided I could put peanut butter on a cracker with out moving to the other side of the kitchen.

As soon as I got the cracker out one of them made a bee line for it!  I yelled, “Do you mind?”  This is my cracker!  Move on!  It did and I finished making the crackers.  The nerve of these ants!

Thanks for reading my blog and I hope you enjoyed my Nude Girl Drawings!

Thomas Wolfe Ghost Story

According to the site ,Ghost Stories of Asheville, NC, there are so specific ghost stories about Thomas Wolfe’s home at 52 Market Street but people have reported some strange goings on there. A man sitting in a rocking chair has been seen and a woman in the dining room has also been there. 

Also a face peering from the upstairs window has been seen and on occasion there are sounds of a typewriter.

Also at Riverside Cemetery where Thomas Wolfe is buried a phantom Confederacy regiment is seen marching in formation.  Could this be the one that was preparing for Civil War Asheville Battle that took place in 1865?

I got these stories from Ghost Stories of Asheville, NC.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler


My husband has told me repeatedly not to kill the ants.  The drops with poison they are lapping up while they play cards are to be sent back to annihilate the nest.  Well, I don’t think the drops are working and we both are wondering if they have built up an immunity to the poison. 

I decided yesterday to stop feeding them.  They can go set up their gaming tables somewhere else.  Today there is a significant decrease in their numbers but I am catching a few trying to get to the food in the cabinets.  One of them had the nerve to crawl on my bread machine that is currently making bread!

That’s it!  Now it is war!  I will kill every one I see.  If they can’t leave my house on their own volition then they will leave feet first!


I hope you enjoy artwork by an Artist of the Blue Ridge Parkway.
