Now that we are having a warm week I am looking forward to Spring weather.  I thought these two paintings would be great ones for today.  One has beautiful evening light on snow and the other is a Spring scene.

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As usual, I am fighting with the computer.  I bought Tweetadder software a while back and have been having trouble using it since day one.  It is so frustrating.  I have to spend way too much time retweeting people since I have 18k followers. 

Tweetadder is supposed to help with that so I can just look through the notifications rather than retweet each one.  I am pretty sure I have the screen set up right so I notified Tweetadder and they said send a screen shot. 

I looked up how to do that on this Mac and instead of a shot I keep getting my last copy when I try to paste it.

 

I called the Word Man and asked if this was the Computer Help Desk.  He said it was either the Helpless Desk or the Beyond Help Desk, take your pick.

Arghhhh! 

He couldn’t help so we are calling our young friend again.  Maybe he should move in.

Here comes the Snow!!!


Please click on my Youtube!

I really didn’t think the snow threat was true.  Lots of times snow is predicted here and we hardly get any.  Not this time!  The inches are piling up and I still have not bought new boots. My old ones cracked apart.  I guess I’ll get the dog sled ready and head to the store.

More on Tuggles Gap on The Beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway and Radford Roosting Festival


My Art work

neartugglescopyrightNear Tuggles Gap   original oil painting 30″x40″      $2425.00

Prints on paper or canvas available at    Kendall Kessler Art

My husband’s roots are deep in the Appalachian mountains and he has ancestors in Rock Castle Gorge and also in Tuggles Gap.  His  great-great-great-great grandfather Pryor Pendleton married  Mary Tuggles in 1807.

I wanted to post another section of the Blue Ridge Mountains near Tuggles Gap.  The Blue Ridge Parkway has so many gorgeous vistas.  In Near Tuggles Gap I caught a section of the Blue Ridge with two churches across from each other.  I think the structures makes for a great focal point in this paintings.

In Park in Floyd I had originally thought of painting the scene without the truck but then I thought it was a great focal point and color accent.  I’m sure the buyer of the painting at a gallery agreed!
