Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is So Pleased to Solve a Problem…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

It is a great feeling to solve a problem.  I have had a personal problem for about fifteen years that I didn’t think I could solve.  It is really a tough problem and too personal to discuss in detail. 

It has called for patience that I did not think I was capable of maintaining for any length of time and now I am able to summon this patience all day long.  I have a few lapses but they are very few. 

Just goes to show you that where there is a will there is a way.  Have a great evening everyone!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Going to Read the Book…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I finally got my replacement phone and I am not going to try to figure it out without reading the book.  My old phone was really old.  No camera, wifi, email, etc. so this one is quite different and I am determined not to do anything stupid. 

They sent a book and I am going to read it this time!  Everything is so complicated now we practically have to read books to breathe.  That certainly isn’t much of an exaggeration!  Yoga class is tomorrow and yoga teachers do teach you how to breathe to do it right!  They don’t pass out a book but they do emphasize proper breathing.

Cheers!

Another one of my son’s first friends was Paul.  They are still friends and see each other at the Bowling League games.  Paul used to live on our street but moved away a few years  ago.

When Alan was very young I made this painting of a small boy walking through the woods.  It was loosely based on a photograph of someone else.  I changed the way the boy looked so that it was not a portrait.  Alan insisted it looked like Paul and he wanted to visit my studio every day to look at the painting of Paul.  I decided to name it “Like Paul”.  There is a strong resemblance.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

 

I enjoyed my short trip to The Meadows of Dan with my husband on Monday.  I have never painted Mabry Mill and I wanted to get a number of photos to work from.  Such a beautiful place!  I highly recommend this beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway site!  Such a peaceful, lovely place and there is a great restuarant there as well!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Children Paintings and Poems, and Stop Taking this Medication…

When my son was young he liked to write poetry about his experiences with his Dad on bird hikes.  One of his teachers asked me to illustrate two for a school fair. 

These illustrations and poems are very special to me.

Shadow of Things to Come is a portrait of my son, Alan, when he began school. I loosely based this on a photograph. This is my most expressive portrait.

The colors and pastel marks were a frenzy of feeling for my child and his first days at school. I am especially pleased with the color contrast and deep shadow effect.

Rehoboth Beach Rides is a colorful, exuberant painting of my son at the rides at Rehoboth Beach in Delaware. He loved the rides and especially liked this carousel with the motorcycle. I have many fond memories of this beach resort.

My family vacationed there when I was growing up and I spent a lot of time at this amusement park myself.

I miss the boardwalk, especially the miniature golf. We now vacation at beautiful South Carolina beach resorts. This painting has great color contrast and complicated textural surfaces.

Life with The Word and Bird Man

I try hard not to let food go bad in the refrigerator.  I make sure it isn’t stuffed with things that get hidden.  Once in a while something does get overlooked and I have to throw it out.

The other day I had some rice that smelled just a little funny so I asked my husband to smell it.  He agreed and said that cooking may kill what is growing in it or it may just wake it up -so chuck it.

I did.

My husband and I are both worry worts.  I got it from mother.  She says if she doesn’t have something to worry about that is current she gets something out of her worry bank.  I am the same way.

My husband worries about some things that I don’t worry about and vice a versa.   We are a Worry Co-op.  Works out nicely that way!  All the worrying is covered by both of us!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, More People Paintings, and Just to be a Fruit Cake…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Here are two of my favorite Alan paintings of the first Birthday party he attended.  The guest of honor was two years old.  Alan jumped up an down when he saw all the toys to play with!

bparty2 (1)Birthday Party or A Child’s View    Original 25″ x 40″ Oil Painting    $10,000

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

“Birthday Party” or “A Child’s View” is a painting done from a photograph I took at a two-year-old’s party. I have often been asked why the title is “Birthday Party” since there are no balloons, cake, etc.

The two-year-olds were involved in parallel play and I wanted to paint something that showed the viewer how that age group sees the world. Since they are usually on the floor playing by themselves their view is oftentimes hands and legs of adults hence the second title.

Birthday Party or A Child’s View    Original 25″ x 40″ Oil Painting    $10,000

The Rest of the Party is a companion painting. Birthday Party or A Child’s View is the other painting of this wonderful event.

I had never heard of a Birthday party for two-year-olds before this one.

My son had such a great time there.  The first painting has parallel play with-in the context of adult hands and feet. This one focuses of the interaction between the adults and toddlers.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

My husband says a lot of strange things. That is putting it mildly.  Anyway the other day he said he was going to make a peanut butter pie sandwich.  He said that because he uses rice cakes instead of bread.  I told him we didn’t have any pie to make a sandwich with. 

He said he was going to make one anyway. 

I said he was going to make a peanut butter sandwich pie because he is a fruit cake.
