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

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!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I need to keep up with technological changes and we are reluctant to do so.  He hates using his phone and still uses a small notebook to record bird sightings. He just uploaded his 30, 000th siting to eBirds at Cornell!  What a dedicated naturalist and hater of computers and phones.  His two volume book on Entymology came with two second volumes and no first so I thought we would have to find the receipt and mail it back. 

Well, for his first time, he took a picture of a code on Amazon and just went to show UPS  the code and they pack and ship it back for free.  That certainly is a new experience for us!  I told Clyde we need to keep up. Not keeping up with technology is like one of our relatives whose spelling is so bad  spell check can’t figure his words out.  He gave me a lecture on how ridiculous the rules are which is nothing new and certainly not a good reason to not learn to spell correctly.

Anyway, Clyde came back with the book because our mailing service that has many carriers including UPS is not an official UPS store so they can’t use the computer code to help us out.  Clyde will have to travel for thirty minutes to an actual UPS store. 

Now that’s a Christmas and Computer Ho Ho Ho!  Argh!

Hope Everyone has a Great New Years Celebration!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I can’t say I like all the political comments on Facebook but I do like the funnies!

I told Clyde about a Santa cartoon yesterday.  Santa is writing a letter to a mother and tells her he received her son’s request for a drum set. 

If she leaves a hundred dollars under the cookie tin he will not send the drum set. 

Of course, Clyde had to put in his two cents. Yeah, the kid can use that cookie tin for drum.  That shouldn’t be too loud! 

I don’t know about that.  She better just put the cookies on a plate.  The tin could be very dangerous in this case!  LOL!

 

Merry Christmas to those that celebrate it and Happy Holidays to everyone else!
