Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Staring at Snow and Stopping the Munchies


Please click on my Youtube!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Wow!  Lots of white stuff out there!  Our street has not been plowed but I can see traffic moving on one of the main roads from my window.  The guys have shoveled the sidewalk twice now and it is still pouring down. 

I’ll never forget what my brother did when we were kids.  He would clear off the driveway after about an inch or two had accumulated and then repeat as often as necessary.  That way he was just pushing it off rather than lifting heavy snow. 

Now he has a snow blower.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before I have fought the battle of the bulge my whole life.  I can’t imagine what it would be like to have the freedom to eat anything without gaining weight.

Anyway, I have learned lots of tricks over the years to keep my weight down and I recently discovered a new one that surprised me.

Once in a while I get the munchies and give in and then am mad at myself.  I hate being stuffed.  It ruins the great experience of eating.  It is like I have to over eat once in a while  to remind myself I don’t want to do that.

Exercise is supposed to make you hungry but if I choose to exercise when I am about to over eat it actually takes my appetite away! 

Since Clyde is also prone to eating a little too much I told him I had a new way to stop the munchies.

He said,” Sew your lips together?  That would probably do it but if you can still eat, then you deserve it.”

Smarty pants.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is off to Buy New Dancing Shoes!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

As I have mentioned before, I hate to shop! I am probably the fastest shopper ever!  I’ll bet I could set records for the least amount of time spent finding something to buy.  Sometimes this is great and sometimes it is not so great.  I didn’t shop around for my new phone and my brother has not stopped laughing about the price I paid.

Oh well.  My dancing shoes are starting to get holes in the inside so I guess it won’t be long before there are holes all the way through.  Time to get on over to the shoe store and spend about five minutes or less getting a new pair and then it is off to Line Dance class!  Yes!  Got to step away from the computer!

 

Today is the last day for this week’s specials below!  Don’t miss out!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, New Florals, and Looking for the Light again!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please check out my latest Youtube!  I am so pleased that I can add music again.  I think they are much better that way.

I have been going through my portfolio to show my florals.  Today I thought I would show two brand new ones that are part of my series, Suggestions.  These are paintings that I am doing based on an Abstract Expressionist surface.  When I see a shape I go with it and develop a colorful, abstract painting.

Petal Play is another sensuous, colorful painting from my series,
Suggestions. I am starting with an abstract expressionist surface and then looking for forms that appear in the paint. This time I saw two large flowers in the position that I have them in the painting. They look like a cross between a petunia and morning glory. I am very pleased with the color in this one.

A Vase of Color   Original Acrylic Painting     NFS

A Vase of color is another sensuous, colorful painting from my series,
Suggestions. I am starting with an abstract expressionist surface and then looking for forms that appear in the paint. This time I saw a rounded shape at the bottom so I turned the painting into a soft focus floral. I am very pleased with the flowing, circular motion in this one.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

It has been quite cloudy lately so the light in my studio is not what I want it to be.  As I have mentioned before, when it is very dark outside the warm colors are hard to see so I end up with stronger warms than I want.  I sure do have to look for the light to work. 

I remember reading about Pierre Bonnard when he was instructing a child he thought had talent.  He remarked that they had to work before the good light was gone.

When you work with a zillion colors light is extremely important.  This is not a problem for my naturalist husband who doesn’t mind getting up in the middle of the night to catch the owls for bird counts.  The stereotype of the bird watcher is completely false.  They are rugged people that walk up and down mountains in brutal weather for accurate records.

 

I think I will quit griping about the light and get to work.  My studio is very comfortable.

I Figured it Out!


Please click on my latest Youtube!

 

I finally figured out why I could not add music to my recent youtubes and still have my original audio!  It doesn’t make any sense to me but I am learning just to click here, click there and something will turn up.

 

I was uploading videos, adjusting the color and contrast, and then adding the music.  This time I added the music first and my original audio is still there!   Yes!!!  Maybe you can teach an old dog new tricks!
