I have just completed a new Blue Ridge Parkway painting!  I am very pleased with it.  It is not available on my website for prints yet but tomorrow it will be available for purchase on my Etsy shop!  I have just started another mountainscape.  I am so pleased to be back to my main theme!

 

I also want to present another Favorite Floral from my portfolio!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

 

“Roanoke Beauty” is a small painting of Happy Hollow Ground Park in Roanoke, VA. This painting was sold out of Towhee Hill Studio. It is a colorful, textural view of a beautiful park ground. The boards are viewing platforms for visitors. This is one of many New River sites that have been inspirations for my paintings. I especially like to find sites with flowers so I will have a lot of color interaction.

 

Now that my husband is off until 2015 ,is he sleeping in rather than getting up at 4:30?  No way.  He is still getting up and checking on the various bird and wildlife species in Radford, VA.  No matter what the weather, the Bird Man is always outside doing what he loves.  I went on just part of a Christmas Bird Count many years ago and thought I would freeze to death.  I admire these people, but it is just not for me.

I couldn’t agree more with the old saying that what is heaven to one person is hell to another.  I’m sure there are plenty of people that would like to do anything rather than stand up at an easel for hour after hour.  That is my heaven but it is a job and does take a lot of discipline.  It is just like playing a musical instrument.  You have to put in a lot of time every day to accomplish a work of art.  I love my job but I could find a lot of other things to do.  I truly do live to paint and  I will be in there soon!

Pleased to Present New Painting of Mabry Mill in Fall!


Please click on my Youtube!

 

I am so pleased to present my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting of the beautiful Mabry Mill in Meadows of Dan. This is a very popular site on the parkway and the fall colors greatly accent the lovely sight!  I don’t prints available yet but hope to have them available in the next few days!

Now that was Different!


Please click on my latest Youtube!  I plan to put up a new one today!  I wish I knew why I can’t add Youtube music and have my voice at the same time.  I did that for many Youtubes and now when I add music my voice disappears.

 

Almost every day I have a fried egg with cappuccino for First Breakfast and some weird things have happened when I cooked the egg but today’s incident tops them all!

I like to turn the egg over to make sure it is cooked.  This time the egg slipped halfway out of the pan and part of the egg yolk dripped down the small crack by the side of the stove where I can’t reach.  No problems with Second Breakfast so I guess that was not an indication of how the day will be.   Cheers!

It was Country Girls, not Cowgirls!


Please click on my latest Youtube!

 

Last night was Line Dance Class and, as usual, I was trying to remember a dance we did a while back.  I am miserable at remembering lyrics and titles but after a while I start to remember part of the melody.  I kept saying it had cowgirls in the title so no one could figure out what I was talking about.  It was country girls!  The song is Country Girls Shake it for Me which is a great tune to dance to!

 

I hope we do it next class!

It is Time to Claim Victory and Retreat!


Please click on my latest Youtube!

My latest painting started out great and then took me through so many twists and turns that I am dizzy.  Painting is hard work and I am starting a new one while this one sulks in the corner for a while. 

It is close to done but I have to get away from it.   I hope to have it up soon.  It has a lot of strengths.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Florals, and Quirky Pain…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am still struggling with my latest Pawleys Island painting but I can see light at the end of the canvas!  It should be done today and then there will be finesse time another day as I fine tune it.  I will be getting back to my main theme which is The Blue Ridge Parkway.  I am looking forward to getting back to this gorgeous region.

For now I thought I would present more of my floral work.  I have made a number of Youtubes on my florals but still have a lot more to show so here are two favorites

tulipburstsmall (2)Tulip Burst Original 10″ x 8″ Oil Painting    $168

Prints on Paper or Canvas and Greeting Cards Available   at   KENDALL KESSLER ART

 

Tulip Burst is an exceptionally sensuous, sensitive, whimsical floral. This painting was done from my imagination and I am especially pleased with the color patterns, brushwork, and soft, glowing surface. I love to work with complementary colors and the over all orange blue effect in this one is especially appealing.

If viewers look at each tulip they will see a continual change in color and texture. The color nuances in each flower emphasis the blue-orange color scheme in the whole painting. I like to paint flowers but my favorite flower is the tulip.

 

treepoem (1)

Tree Poem   20″ x 16″ Oil Painting    $670

Prints on Paper or Canvas and Greeting Cards Available   at   KENDALL KESSLER ART

“Tree Poem” is a painting that reminds me of the famous poem, “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer. I consider my work to be visual poetry with complicated systems of color and texture. In this painting I wanted the land, sky, and flowers to visually support the tree.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

A few days ago I was having a strange pain behind my right knee.  It would be intense at times and then go completely away.  I kept thinking it was gone and then it would start up again.  I mentioned this to my husband and said that maybe as we get older we get quirky pains.  His response was that if that is true then his whole body is a quirk.  The joys of getting older.  LOL
