Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Staring at the Rain and Where is it?

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

It certainly has been cloudy lately.  I don’t mind overcast weather but I would like to see the sun soon.  It always amazes me that when I have a patron coming over for a studio visit it is almost always cloudy.  We have an active solar house and it is a dark house on one side and bright on the other. 

A lot of my artwork is on display in the dark side of the house, not just the studio.   I turn on a lot of lights but the natural light coming in through the windows looks the best.

Anyway, I have finally started my Wintergreen sunset painting!  It is great to back to oil paint but I think I will be ordering some very expensive colors soon.  It would be great if professional oil paint was the same price as house paint.  I knew an artist that painted very large works and he would use house paint.  I can understand that!  The colors are way too flat for me and I want my work to last forever so I use Gamblin and Utrect. 

I mostly use the more expensive brand which is Gamblin but I don’t like Gamblin Cerulean Blue so I order that color from Utrecht.  I also don’t use earth colors which are less expensive.  I have a colorist palette so I order expensive blues, greens, yellows, reds, and purples.  I can get any kind of earth color from those colors and I think the effect is more vibrant.  Right now, Cadmium Red is $66 for a large tube.  I always buy large tubes. The small ones don’t last long at all. 

Okay. Enough shop talk! Time to paint.  I hope everyone has a great day!

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I are having more trouble finding things than usual.  I usually get very aggravated and start cussing like a sailor.  Clyde just keeps trying to find whatever it is we can’t locate. 

Anyway I told Clyde the first nine chapters of The Marriage book are “Where is it?” 

Chapter 10 is “I don’t know”.

You got that right Hubby!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Working on Commissions and Staring at Grey Skies…

Such a grey day.  It is so dark outside it is like twilight.  I have read that days without sun cause some people to be depressed.  I have never noticed that.  I like being able to see without sun glasses and the somber mood is okay with me.  I must admit I would rather see the sun. 

I was amazed at the temperature in my car when I went to the store! 67! That certainly is warm for January.  I like snow and hope we see some more.  I have some new boots so I can walk in it.  I always said if we have to have winter then there should be snow.  It is so beautiful!  I only have a few snow scene paintings. 

I think after I get through with my current commission and my Wintergreen Blue Ridge Overlook, I will look into painting a snow scene. 

Hope the weather cooperates!

Well, I have taken a detour from my new nudes series. I found an old painting that I decided to finally finish and I started a small Suggestions painting.  Glad for both of these paintings since I had a lot of oil paint left on my palette and like Renoir, I hate to waste paint.  Anyway, I will get back to the nude series after I finish these two paintings.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I are still catching up on Married with Children.  What a great show.  The other night they showed an episode where Al’s life is saved by his lucky shoe horn that he had in his breast pocket. 

Of course, he had to make the crack that he didn’t die so the shoe horn let him down. 

I told Clyde he would never say he wanted to die like Al Bundy. 

No, you would kill me. 

Ha ha.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I keep seeing on TV that we should live in the special moments.  Okay.  Call me Sheldon or Spock but how do we not live in any of our  moments? Do we die during some of them and live during others? Why are some moments more special than others?  I guess what they mean is we should really pay attention to special times. 

I asked Clyde if he lives in the special moments.  He said he consults his pet rock to find out which ones are special.

Again with the pet rock.  I hope we move on to something else soon.

Well, I finished the third stage of my latest figure painting and I think the arm wrestling is over.  I still have work to do but I like the way it looks now more or less.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Wow, so many Insurance commercials.  I do think we need health and car and home insurance but I know we can be over insured.  I know I could have bought a number of washing machines for the amount someone asked me to pay annually to insure it a long time ago.  Glad I didn’t take him up on that. 

I think there are Insurance Companies for just about anything these days. 

Clyde said there is probably one to insure your pet rock. 

One scratch and we will throw another one right at you.  Don’t forget to duck.

I am still waiting for the arm wrestling on my latest painting.  I am amazed at how cooperative it has been so far.  I think there is a demon hiding behind my storage bin that is just waiting to come out and pounce.  I hope not.  Nothing wrong with a painting that comes along quietly without my pulling out a gun and putting it out of its misery. 

I have been at this far too long to get that mad at a painting.  I wish I had some of the ones I thought were losers when I was too hard on myself. 

Glad I got over that nonsense.  I have won many awards from prominent people and I now agree with them.  I think my work will last!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Last night Clyde was watching How to Train a Dragon.  Such an unusual movie!  The one that looked like a cat was especially strange. 

I asked Clyde what could I do to train him? 

Throw me out the front door and lock it? 

How would that tame you? 

I don’t know.  I guess you will have to try it and see. 

Too cold out there and I don’t think it would do much good anyway.  LOL!

Nothing from the Word Man today but I did see something on Facebook that I knew he would like.  He has a business page but is too much of a curmudgeon to have a personal page.  The joke was, I don’t think Facebook has taught the lame to walk but it has caused  the dumb to speak.  No offense to anyone that loves Facebook!  Just thought it was a good funnie!
