I am pleased to mail out Atlantic Sunrise to a great Mississippi patron who is recovering from the second Moderna shot. I hope this painting cheers him up. Such a nice man to work with. He has consented to letting me offer print sales of this painting, so click on the link if you are interested. Wall art prints and prints on just about anything, including face masks are available.

My latest figure painting is coming along and I am considering painting it in the style that the original failed painting was painted in many years ago. I was going to use the complicated system I use now but I am having success with a more traditional approach to handling the paint so I will probably go in that direction. Who knows? I make decisions but the painting always starts talking to me and giving me suggestions.

Anyway, between my new painting, coming up with an idea for my next Youtube and getting ready to play again at church, I am really stressed for time. I wish I didn’t have to drive to get to UPS. Wish we had a closer one but the last painting was delayed so I am not trusting USPS this time.

Kendall Kessler is Pleased to Sell another Print of Isle of Palms Sunset


Isle of Palms Sunset Original 40″ x 30″ Oil painting $2430 Wall Art Prints and prints on just about anything available at the below link

https://kendall-kessler.pixels.com/featured/isle-of-palms-sunset-kendall-kessler.html

I love it when someone orders a print that is the same size as the painting. I remember listening to one artist on TV say scale does not matter. I disagree and I paint many of my works to look good in a 40″ x 30″ format. The great MO patron will be seeing Isle of Palms Sunset in the same way I see it and I think that is a good thing!

I also like it when I can figure out the changes in a site. When I post a file of a painting on WordPress a caption comes up with a picture and a guide to change it. I can make the letters bold but I don’t see any where I can change the font size. I don’t see it at the top left, right on in the section above the caption that has options.

One of these days I will get used to the new WordPress. But right now it is still a big ARGHHHH. I can change the font size if I start a new block. Then the options appear to the right. Go figure.

Had a big bump with my latest figure painting but I think I have resolved my beginning issues and can now get seriously to work on it. It is a kind of remake from the past and it will look completely different. I will be incorporating a few things from the original work but not that much.

I am going to incorporate some of the fabrics into the painting but the model will completely change and the setting will have major changes, too. I am excited about getting back to this painting.

Please check out my latest painting demo youtube below! So pleased with the magical look to this wildflower sunset. One of the viewers told me that it looked magical and I agree. Also, check out my main Youtube on me!

Kendall Kessler is Back to Work


So glad my back is completely better. All I did was lean over to get something out of the refrigerator. I know it is just tension that causes one of my muscles to go crazy. I am back to Yoga and that helps a lot. I am about to get started on one of my very old paintings I recently . recovered. I have to think about how I am going to paint it. I know it will require at least one layer but probably a number of layers. So glad to have it back!

My approach to a painting is so different from it was when I painted it. I don’t usually greatly modify old work but this one had so many faults that must be corrected. I have thought about that painting a lot and stared at it for a while and it is not going to bear much resemblance to what it is now.

I am going to incorporate some of the fabrics into the painting but the model will completely change and the setting will have major changes, too. I am excited about getting back to this painting.

Also, I am picking up on a thing or two on the new WordPress format each day. I hate being so computer challenged but I know I have to keep up. These sites are not going to stop modifying formats for me. Be sure to check out my latest Youtube and Here is another figure painting and some other favorites and cheers on a beautiful Tuesday! Well that figures. Right after I typed this paragraph I discovered I don’t know how to remove a former youtube so I am just going to leave it there and put the new one underneath. I will probably figure that one out next time.

Kendall Kessler is Back to Work


Well I am not hobbling along today. My back is just about well, and, of course, I am working away. My latest commission is done. I signed it today and am working on getting the right frame for it. It certainly has been a traumatic week so I am not surprised a muscle in my back went ballistic. That almost always happens when I am tense.

I tried to join my Yoga class but as soon as we went to the mat and laid down I knew I was in trouble. Hopefully I can make the next class. Got to keep those muscles stretched out. Anyway, I am looking forward to working on some old paintings that I finally got back from my parent’s property.

My Dad whom I loved dearly was not at all pleased with my desire to study Art and when I graduated with a B.A. he took some of my paintings. I think he thought that was something he got out of my degree that he paid for. Well, it has always bothered me that I didn’t take those paintings with me. So much time has passed and I have always wanted to work on them.

They have a lot of faults that were due to my painting inexperience and lack of time to complete them to my satisfaction. Yes, artists really do go back to old works if they still have them. One is a painting of a model and the other is an abstract. I am sharing three paintings that are somewhat similar and walking away from the computer. Also check out my short Thursday video. Have a great weekend!

Current Commission is coming along


I am just about done with my latest commission and hopefully be sending it to the patron soon! I got off course but now I think it is just about at the finish line.

As I always say, paintings will drive you crazy, if you let them. Even commissions where there is an agreement on how the painting will turn out can still be difficult.

I am going off the grid for a few days due to a trip. I hate working on sites when I am not on my computer. It is always so confusing for a computer challenged person. I am getting better at the new WordPress format but I still have bumps.

So cheers and I hope everyone has a great weekend! Be sure to check out my latest Youtube and here are some painting selections from several sites.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Last night Clyde was watching a movie that seemed like it was lasting forever.  When I mentioned to him that it must be a very long movie he said there are enough commercials for it to last to New Years 2019.

I said that was a crazy exaggeration so he said, “Okay, 2018.”

That’s better.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I like to wear decent clothes when I leave the house so I have to change a lot.  As soon as I get home I take off the jewelry and put on clothes that Good Will would probably hand back to me.

The other day as I was changing back into my house uniform Clyde was lying on the bed in his usual stained t-shirt and baggy pants that are either pjs or just look like pjs.

I told him that just because he wears his Sunday best around the house doesn’t mean I have to.

You can imagine the look he gave me.  Sometimes you don’t need pictures.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I have another technology rant.

The other day I called a number that I have called a zillion times and was told it was out of order.  I looked online and there was the number I always call.  I tried again.  Not in service.  So I called an office connected with this office in downtown Radford.

The clerk tried the number and had no problem so I tried again.  Not in service.  I called the downtown office again and asked them to a call the number and have them call me.

Finally, contact.  I informed the clerk that the number on the site was incorrect because the number that showed up on my phone was different. She said it was correct.  They have five different lines.  Why wouldn’t it work for me?

As irritating as that was my new mouse I call Zippy the Wonder Mouse, because it works, was acting up and zooming all over the screen without me.  I called Clyde and said I was going to slam the phone into the computer and throw them through the window.  He said good – then we would only have one bill – the bill to fix the window.  We don’t want to be cold.

 

Well, that was a fun rant.  Time to smile and think of the Holidays!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I both got a kick out of this one!  My Line Dance class did one of our Christmas programs at a Retirement Center on Saturday.

As we were setting up, a very nice gentleman started talking to me about his background.  He was of Italian descent so I told him I was half Italian.  He asked which half?  I cracked up.  I had never thought of it that way but he was not joking.  He just wanted to know whether my Dad or Mom was Italian.

Anyway, here’s to my great, first generation in America, Italian Dad who is no longer with us!  We all miss you Dad!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

A popular phrase these days is the desire for closure.  Yesterday when someone on TV announced they needed closure, Clyde asked who is this Closure?  Everybody seems to be looking for him.  Does he owe them money?  I don’t think they are ever going to find him.

Ha ha.  Another weird funny from The Word Man.
