A Naturalist’s Legacy is a painting in honor of my husband’s naturalist achievements. The painting is symbolic as he has taught old and young people about the beautiful region he was born in.
Clyde Kessler, a well known naturalist in Virginia and North Carolina has been studying the bird and butterfly populations and migrations since 1975. He has participated in Christmas bird counts for the National Audobon Society since 1973.
His discovery in Virginia of the endangered Mitchell’s Satyr in 1998 led to efforts to protect the species in the state. It was unknown in Virginia at the time. It is considered to be one of the most important wildlife finds in the second half of the 20th century.
Clyde has also led hawk watches since the mid 70’s at Rocky Knob and other locations, and has surveyed Wildwood Park for plants and animal species for the city of Radford.
Rabbit in the Pool Original 30″ x 40″ Oil Painting $10,000
Rabbit in the Pool is a fun genre painting of my son and husband in a baby pool on our deck. My son had a lot of pool toys but my favorite one was a rabbit balloon toy with a carrot in his mouth. This painting is full of life!
Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler
Yesterday I had a brainstorm, well maybe a brain shower but I thought it was a good idea! As usual, I am fighting the urge to tear out my hair as I try to figure out a site I work on. It occurred to me that we need another Holiday for the Greeting Card Companies.
We can call it The I want to Throw my Computer out the Window Day. Think of how many people would buy a card!
My husband’s response was, think of how many people would be killed by computers falling out of windows. Oh well, back to the drawing board- literally!
