Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Latest Butterfly Painting and You can stay…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I tried something different this time with my latest Suggestion painting that I filmed and will present on Monday.  I had been covering the surface quickly with a large brush and then spending more time on the second stage after I dried the first stage.  This time I wanted to have more complicate systems of color like my main work so I used a small brush and took more time on the first stage.  A nebulous, and I mean nebulous butterfly seemed to show up so that is what I went with. 

The contrast between the butterfly and the background is not strong, so in the third stage I will separate the two and make it even more complicated.  Love to work with color! More than anything else, my work is about color regardless of the level of abstraction.  Looking forward to finishing the painting and I will have a link to the finished work here and in the description on the Youtube! 

I am up to 191 followers now and hope to greatly increase that number!  Cheers on a Saturday! 

Check out a representational colored pencil butterfly below.  The one I am working on is an imaginary abstract butterfly.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 A long time ago I thought it would be a good idea to buy a small house so we wouldn’t fill it up with stuff that we have to get rid of. Well, that didn’t work. I have spent years moving things out and we really need more room for all of Clyde’s records. 

A lot of his research needs to be in paper form rather than on a computer so, instead of scaling down, we will be scaling up. 

Last night when I made the very short trip from the kitchen to the other end of the house to find my glasses and other things, I thought about what it would be like in a big house. 

I told Clyde I had better sharpen up before we move. 

Well, if you get too sharp you might throw me out. 

No, you and all your stuff gets to stay.

That’s a relief.

I am still modifying my latest Youtube so please check out this one which is one of my favorites!

 My latest Kendall Expression painting is coming along.  The picture below is the second layer.  I am working hard to keep a lot of visual energy in each stage!  I love the way tulip petals eventually curl and I am using that beautiful shape as a strong, repeating motiff in this work.

 Work in Progress

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Since my last awful dental cleaning I have decided to fight back!  I take good care of my teeth but now I am a teeth cleaning ninja!  I brush immediately after eating anything.  I use my water pick that I was worried about using due to the problem of cleaning it.

What do you use? A toothbrush to clean it?

Not only am I flossing after every meal, but I now have a kit in my purse with brush, toothpaste and floss.  I told Clyde we need to invest in dental floss stock since I am buying it all up.

If the dental hygienist says I have heavy tartar build up next time I will eat a dental instrument!

 Clyde and Alan is a colorful painting I did of my husband and son. My husband didn’t like our rocking chair so he rocked Alan to sleep on our bed. The strong color contrast was added to the scene to express my joy over his birth. I worked from a photograph that had much softer color combinations.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, New Suggestion Painting, and Another Mirror Joke…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

 

I have started another Kendall Expressions painting.  I am using Acrylic paint this time and trying to be looser with the colors and forms.  That is always hard for me.  I am an Impressionist at heart and Impressionism is an intense, scientific approach to light and shade as found in nature. 

I am still working on my Suggestion Series at the same time.  Be sure to click on the gallery link on my website to check these folders out!  The link to my website is below in red. 

Here is  one of my latest Suggestion paintings.  Love the flowing motion and color contrast in this one!

 Pillow Puff 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 a pillow shape on the right showed up so I added others for a flowing still life. I am especially pleased with the strong blues and purples in this one.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I have posted a lot of mirror jokes from the Word Man.  One of my favorites is the mirror wants to quit reflecting him and hopes it will come back in another life as a dog dish.

Now the mirror is threatening to call 911.  Mirror abuse. 

LOL!

Get Thee to a Massage Therapist!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I have been trying to talk my husband into seeing a massage therapist for his hip problem.  He has been to a physical therapist and has been doing the exercises he was give for years and he still has pain.

A nurse friend of mine thinks a massage therapist would help but he is skeptical.  I hope he will give it a try.  He has tried everything else.
