Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has started another Claytor Lake Painting and Raisins on Top…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I started a new lake painting today and it was quite a different experience. I don’t know if this pandemic has me down or I just wanted to try a different approach to the first layer, but it really is wild.  I am hoping to get a more complicated system in color with this one from the start and it really is colorful right now. 

It was not fun.  As I have mentioned before a lot of artists talk about the first layer as fun and then it gets difficult.  My first layer usually is fun, so this is definitely a different type of session for me. 

I will see what happens next!  Painting keeps me going. 

Be sure to check out my latest video above!  I now have over 900 followers!  Lots of great comments.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I snack a lot, especially after supper.  Last night I couldn’t decide what I wanted. 

I like to complain about these things to Clyde because he usually has a goofy answer for me and, as usual, he did not disappoint. 

I can’t decide.  I have carrot cake, brownies, and cookies. 

Eat all of them.

All of them? You mean I should smash the brownie into the carrot cake and put a cookie on top?

Sure, but on top of that, add some raisins and call it a healthy snack. 

Yeah, right. I think my scale will disagree with you if I have that kind of healthy snack. 

I think I will get some popcorn – no butter.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Claytor Lake painting


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I am very pleased with my latest painting of Claytor Lake and I am considering painting more of this great park.  This is only the second painting I have done of one my favorite places in Southwest Virginia.  This one is so close to exactly what I was after which is a nice experience, but I do have plans for a slightly different approach to my next one.  Always learning, always improving. 

As I have said over and over again it would be boring if I had a set way of painting that never changed.  My opinion.  I do think there are artists that do not change their methods and there is nothing wrong with that. 

I have to keep on progressing even though I’ll bet a lot of people don’t see that much difference, but I do, and it is an exciting process!

Please click on my  Youtube! Yesterday I filmed a new Youtube and I started editing it yesterday.  I guess there must be a lot of people working on Youtube today because it still isn’t finished with the last update!  I hope there isn’t some kind of problem.  If I get some sort of site malfunction notice, I will not be happy.

Anyway,  I hope to have it ready tomorrow.  Very pleased with my latest ocean painting but it isn’t real far along.  We’ll see what happens with the different layers.  Here is the first.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, New Youtube Tomorrow, and Watery Grave…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my  Youtube! Hope to have a new one tomorrow!I  am real excited about my new large ocean painting that I am basing on a lot of memories.  I spent a lot of time at the beach and on the Chesapeake Bay in my early years and I have a lot of beautiful pictures in my head. 

This painting combines several of them and I will present it in layers for print sales and then the final will be available for purchase and prints!  Time to get in the studio!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

I had an old cell phone that was good enough for me for a very long time.  People hardly ever contact me by phone for artwork.  They send an email.

No internet, phone, etc.

I finally updated by phone to an Android that has been driving me crazy.  I finally have it working right after I had to get a replacement.  The first one was really messed up.  My brother with a doctorate in Computer Science had a hard time setting his up. 

Anyway, when I swipe an icon there is a water sound.  I told Clyde that I think it sounds like water because it knows it may end up at the bottom of a lake some day.  I am tempted at times to send it there.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my  Youtube!

Love my Line Dance Class!  We are practicing for Christmas performances right now!  We have a great time performing for clubs and Retirement Homes this time of the year.  The audiences are always fun and I think we are terrific dancers!  I need to go find a green sweater.  We are also working on our clothes.  This year we are thinking of wearing both red and green.  Cheers!

I just realized that I forgot to change the link for the November Special Promotion which is Smith Mountain Lake.  Sorry if you have been clicking on the link under the painting and getting last month’s Special which was Cascades in Giles County.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I do not like to fly.  I avoid it as much as possible but I am glad I crossed the Atlantic three times to Europe. Great trips!  So glad there are movies to watch to take my mind off all that water below.  I know airplanes are safer than cars but you can’t pull over and check under the hood in an airplane.

 

Anyway, the other day we were discussing credit cards.  We don’t like them either and have only one that is not used much.  I have to laugh at frequent flyer options.  Clyde’s comment was, “Frequent flyer miles? How about frequent bomb shelter use?”  He would use one for that option.  LOL!

Now that was Different!


Please click on my latest Youtube!  I plan to put up a new one today!  I wish I knew why I can’t add Youtube music and have my voice at the same time.  I did that for many Youtubes and now when I add music my voice disappears.

 

Almost every day I have a fried egg with cappuccino for First Breakfast and some weird things have happened when I cooked the egg but today’s incident tops them all!

I like to turn the egg over to make sure it is cooked.  This time the egg slipped halfway out of the pan and part of the egg yolk dripped down the small crack by the side of the stove where I can’t reach.  No problems with Second Breakfast so I guess that was not an indication of how the day will be.   Cheers!

It was Country Girls, not Cowgirls!


Please click on my latest Youtube!

 

Last night was Line Dance Class and, as usual, I was trying to remember a dance we did a while back.  I am miserable at remembering lyrics and titles but after a while I start to remember part of the melody.  I kept saying it had cowgirls in the title so no one could figure out what I was talking about.  It was country girls!  The song is Country Girls Shake it for Me which is a great tune to dance to!

 

I hope we do it next class!

Please click on my latest Youtube!

My latest painting started out great and then took me through so many twists and turns that I am dizzy.  Painting is hard work and I am starting a new one while this one sulks in the corner for a while. 

It is close to done but I have to get away from it.   I hope to have it up soon.  It has a lot of strengths.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Florals, and Quirky Pain…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am still struggling with my latest Pawleys Island painting but I can see light at the end of the canvas!  It should be done today and then there will be finesse time another day as I fine tune it.  I will be getting back to my main theme which is The Blue Ridge Parkway.  I am looking forward to getting back to this gorgeous region.

For now I thought I would present more of my floral work.  I have made a number of Youtubes on my florals but still have a lot more to show so here are two favorites

tulipburstsmall (2)Tulip Burst Original 10″ x 8″ Oil Painting    $168

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

 

Tulip Burst is an exceptionally sensuous, sensitive, whimsical floral. This painting was done from my imagination and I am especially pleased with the color patterns, brushwork, and soft, glowing surface. I love to work with complementary colors and the over all orange blue effect in this one is especially appealing.

If viewers look at each tulip they will see a continual change in color and texture. The color nuances in each flower emphasis the blue-orange color scheme in the whole painting. I like to paint flowers but my favorite flower is the tulip.

 

treepoem (1)

Tree Poem   20″ x 16″ Oil Painting    $670

“Tree Poem” is a painting that reminds me of the famous poem, “Trees” by Joyce Kilmer. I consider my work to be visual poetry with complicated systems of color and texture. In this painting I wanted the land, sky, and flowers to visually support the tree.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

A few days ago I was having a strange pain behind my right knee.  It would be intense at times and then go completely away.  I kept thinking it was gone and then it would start up again.  I mentioned this to my husband and said that maybe as we get older we get quirky pains.  His response was that if that is true then his whole body is a quirk.  The joys of getting older.  LOL
