I still have a couple of Christmas chores that I will do as soon as I get off the computer.  Looking forward to family time tomorrow and taking it easy.  Hope everyone has a great Christmas!  If you don’t celebrate Christmas, then Happy Holidays!  My rear end is getting real sore sitting here so it is time to get going!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde does not like cell phones.  He hardly ever has his on and oftentimes doesn’t even take it with him.  He pays about seven dollars a month and is required to add at least 60 minutes every three months.

He just added more and now has 1000 minutes on his phone.  I told him he could probably call Mars. He said the Martians would probably offer a lot of rocks in exchange for hamburgers.  I think I will keep my hamburgers.  Rocks from Mars does sound interesting but the only time I am not hungry is right after eating so…no.  Keep your rocks, Mars.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist’s New Heart Painting


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am still working hard on my heart series in my Whimsy gallery on my website.  I am especially pleased with my latest one!  This time I decided to use oil paint.  All the others are acrylics, pastel, or acrylic paint used as a watercolor. 

These paintings are done in one day so I didn’t think oil paint would be the medium to use but I was able to use very thin layers and came up with my favorite one so far!

Check it out and my special promotions below end today.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I both got a kick out of a great post on Facebook!  A lot of people put up posts about the past and ask if anybody remembers.  They are fun but someone decided to put up a joke about those posts.  The picture is of a cave man using a rock for a tool.

 

The caption is “Share if you are old enough to remember making tools from rocks.”  Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my  Youtube!   I finally found the time to upload a new one!  Please check it out!

Such a great Birthday!  I don’t even know how many people on Facebook wished me a great one!  Some of them sent more than one Birthday wish!  I answered them all!  Great to be remembered!

Still working on Heart interpretations.  This one is my favorite so far!  Heart Mist has a beautiful atmospheric effect that enhances the many feelings associated with this symbol.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde, as usual, has been coming up with some great quips but all of them would get me in trouble if I printed them.  As always, after he makes me laugh with a quip he says, “Don’t print that.”

Again, last night I said, “You think I don’t have any discretion.”

He said, “I know you don’t have any discretion.  You married me.”

I can print that one.  LOL!

My Artwork

Prints on paper or canvas can be purchased at          KENDALL KESSLER ART

I have not been to Smart View many times but both of the paintings I did from that site sold.  It is a gorgeous place and I’m sure we will visit again sometime.  My favorite Blue Ridge Mountain paintings include clouds.  I have always been fascinated by cloud shapes and the colors of light and shade on them.  I especially like the colors in the evening when the contrast is not so strong and the spectrum is easier to see.

Recent Print Sales

It is great to sell my paintings over and over again in print version!  On my website patrons can get my work on paper or canvas,  framed or un-framed, and in a great selection of sizes.  Some of them can be bought in around size 40″x60″!

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

clyde2014

My husband has had his poems published over 200 times in magazines and one of them will soon be in an anthology.

Here is one of the five just published in The Writing Disorder!

DIPLOMACY

by Clyde Kessler

Trees here, never being trees,
are always born from growling binary stars
slumming the world. You can dream them
with a cluster of orchid flowers strangling
a flag, hoisting it inside a plum seed,
or home across your brow where all
imagination is suspect, and isolated.

You can fall from orbit, go crazy,
track the moonrise across fallout shelters.
You can divvy up the salt, the stress,
the last communiques, wolf pups, jonquils,
two dazzle bolts, three crates of kit puzzlers,
and the last bag of visors whittled from skulls.

Trees, never being trees, have been painted
towards our frozen city, to start new wars.
I read you the news, you read me a reply.
Our diplomats start shooting each other.
