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

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 Staring at the Rain and Where is it?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

It certainly has been cloudy lately.  I don’t mind overcast weather but I would like to see the sun soon.  It always amazes me that when I have a patron coming over for a studio visit it is almost always cloudy.  We have an active solar house and it is a dark house on one side and bright on the other. 

A lot of my artwork is on display in the dark side of the house, not just the studio.   I turn on a lot of lights but the natural light coming in through the windows looks the best.

Anyway, I have finally started my Wintergreen sunset painting!  It is great to back to oil paint but I think I will be ordering some very expensive colors soon.  It would be great if professional oil paint was the same price as house paint.  I knew an artist that painted very large works and he would use house paint.  I can understand that!  The colors are way too flat for me and I want my work to last forever so I use Gamblin and Utrect. 

I mostly use the more expensive brand which is Gamblin but I don’t like Gamblin Cerulean Blue so I order that color from Utrecht.  I also don’t use earth colors which are less expensive.  I have a colorist palette so I order expensive blues, greens, yellows, reds, and purples.  I can get any kind of earth color from those colors and I think the effect is more vibrant.  Right now, Cadmium Red is $66 for a large tube.  I always buy large tubes. The small ones don’t last long at all. 

Okay. Enough shop talk! Time to paint.  I hope everyone has a great day!

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I are having more trouble finding things than usual.  I usually get very aggravated and start cussing like a sailor.  Clyde just keeps trying to find whatever it is we can’t locate. 

Anyway I told Clyde the first nine chapters of The Marriage book are “Where is it?” 

Chapter 10 is “I don’t know”.

You got that right Hubby!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Presents New Youtube and If you Hear me Crying…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I am pleased that I managed another Skyline Beauty painting of Austin Texas!  Now I will have five for an Etsy listing.  This time I decided to use soft pastel colors.  I am getting a lot of compliments on my expressive skylines so I thought it would be a nice change of pace to use a different palette.  I am very pleased with the results. 

My first medium was soft pastels and I know how to mimic that look with paint. Be sure to check it out! 

I am looking forward to the patron that commissioned me to restore some glass paintings.  He is also considering a lake commission and will be purchasing The Lodge at The Peaks of Otter.  He has a print but he wants to get the original and give the print to a friend.

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Well, I got my new phone.  I stared at that box for a few days and then was notified I should set it up.  I can’t believe how much trouble I have with this sort of thing.  The last time the operator had to admit something was actually wrong with the phone and we had to send it back and get another one. 

I told Clyde if you hear me crying it is because I finally opened the box.  He said if I hear you laughing I will know you chucked it out the window.  As it turned out we spent an hour and a half trying to get it set up with an operator. 

After forty five minutes he assured me the minutes had been transferred to my new phone.  I tried to make a call and was informed by the phone there would be charges.  So we started over with another operator, this time on a chat.  Finally I can use the phone. 

Now I just need help getting all the stuff from my old phone transferred to the new one.  We will call a friend that is much younger than us to help.  He is not from India.  We can easily understand him.  Yikes!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Latest Commission and I am Talking about You!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, I have done some unusual commissions but my latest is definitely a new experience for me that is turning out very well!  A great patron that owns a number of my prints and one commission asked me to restore some paintings done on glass that were made over 100 years ago! 

A lot of the paint had come off and when I attempted to paint from the back the way the artist did, the damaged first layer still showed, so I either had to scrape off all of the paint or paint on the front and completely cover all layers. 

The patron didn’t have a problem with painting the front.  I think it turned out great and the patron said it looks wonderful so now on to the second one!  The finished painting on glass is below.  It will be placed back into a gorgeous, molded frame.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday I was feeling real good about the very unusual guy I married many years ago so when he came down the hall I said, “Ah, the love of my life!” 

He slowly looked behind  on his right and then slowly looked behind on his left. 

You, you boob!  I am talking about you! 

Oh.

I am so pleased I finished another Youtube Demo today!  I am trying to get more attention on Youtube and more followers.  I think this one turned out real well!  I always take an experimental approach with Youtubes and I was going to paint more of an abstract one but ended up with my main style. 

I am getting lots of great comments on them and another Youtuber is going to feature information about my work on one of his Youtubes!  Always great to get that kind of compliment!  I am also pleased with the progress on my latest commission.  I was having a little trouble with it but now I think it is all clear sailing! 

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  One of these days I might notice the difference between week days and weekends but I doubt it. 

I need to get back to work.

Not my favorite day. Lots of aggravation. Trying to get things done but I feel like I am on a treadmill.  Lots of motion, just not getting anywhere. 

I think it was The Father of the Bride starring Spencer Tracy and Elizabeth Taylor that featured a dream sequence with Tracy trying to get down the aisle at the church and there were so many obstacles he couldn’t get there.  I think some days are like that. 

Oh well.  Let’s see what I can get done before I let out a scream like Elizabeth Taylor did in that film. LOL!

Well, the painting demo for my latest Youtube that I uploaded today sure took quite a u-turn!  I changed it so much that I decided to upload the demo and the final painting in my Stages of my Artwork collection on my website. 

The idea I had in my mind when I filmed the demo just didn’t go the way I had planned so I stopped at a point that I thought had a finished look and then went back into the whole painting off camera. 

My Skyline Paintings are always highly experimental so I never know where they are going to take me.  Be sure to check out the Demo above and click on the first stage and the final paintings below!
