Blue Ridge Parkway is Running Around in Circles and Widespread Fraud…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

It is a beautiful day but I missed the morning light so I can’t get to the next layer of my current painting.  So much to do all the time and I am trying hard to catch up while the computer fights me. 

This morning it decided to just spin and spin and spin so I had to turn it off.  Can’t click on the restart button if it is spinning.  When I turned it back on that little line partly filled up but I didn’t think it would ever completely finish.  I wish my computer liked me more. 

Maybe computers don’t like artists that work in the old fashioned way of applying paint to a canvas rather than using a computer for paintings on paper.  Computer art is just not for me even though I see some great examples every day.  I much prefer to apply layers and then get to a final layer that has a unique elevated surface. 

Anyway, tomorrow I hope to get to my new lake painting.  It will be another sunset and only 8″ x 10″ so I won’t be intimidated by the cost of paint.  It is hard to believe there was a time when I painted in such thin layers that the cost of the paint was not an issue at all.  Not anymore! 

The virus stats in our area are increasing by quite a bit every day and there are more hospital stays and deaths. 

Please wear a mask.  If you think they are not necessary, just humor the rest of us!  It is the nice thing to do. Be nice!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Lots of Backyardica these days for Clyde.  I think he has put on a few pounds.  He doesn’t think so but he looks a little bigger around the middle. 

We both saw this fun weight comment on my Twitter feed. 

I tried on a pair of pants that were too tight.  I don’t believe it. I am declaring widespread fraud.  

Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Happy! Husband is Better!

Please click on my latest Youtube!  Watch me paint!

Wow!  I am always complaining about lack of time but when there is a family emergency the time really gets shot out of a cannon! This can’t be Thursday!  What happened to that awful Monday that got worse on Tuesday and horrible on Wednesday. 

My husband’s food poisoning turned into  a much more severe problem that we had to go to the emergency room about.  They were about to keep him overnight when they managed to get his heart rate down so I brought him home to a lot of medical fun.  As Snoopy once said in the great comic strip, “My mind reels with sarcastic replies. 

Anyway, he is better but has to pretty much stay in bed for a while which is the next thing to torture for a naturalist. 

Oh well, he is on the mend and that is great!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell another Blue Ridge Painting!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I am so pleased to sell another Blue Ridge Parkway painting to a great Virginia patron!  This one is of Rock Castle Gorge.  I have a number of paintings of this beautiful section of the Parkway.  It is my favorite section of the Blue Ridge and my most popular mountain painting is A Break in the Clouds which was done from this overlook. 

I use to tease my husband that he should have a mail box there since it is the main place where he researches birds and butterflies and where he has led many Hawk watches over the years.  As always wall art prints and prints on just about anything are available. 

I am also having a great time talking to other Youtubers about my new Demo videos!  Be sure to check out my latest below.  I should have another one up on Monday!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Checks out the Oscars and He Hopes it sprouts wings…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I was just looking at the oscar awards for this year and I have heard many people say they are pleased with the results. I used to keep up with the oscars since I am such a movie buff but I don’t follow them now that there is no end to the type of movies I can get on Netflix and at the library. 

I have found so many great independent films and foreign films that I have bought a number of them.  I have quite a collection and keep adding to it.  I love all kinds of movies and admire all the people that take part in producing them. 

I will definitely check out the winners when I get more time, especially At Eternity’s Gate starring Willem Defoe.  I am a big fan of his and there are two lesser known films that he starred in that I want to order.  Victory and The Reckoning.  Sam Neil also stars in Victory and I think it was one of, if not, his most powerful performances.

I even have a fantastic restored version of The Cabinet of Doctor Caligari which is one of the first horror films.  By today’s standards it is not that frightening but it is one of my all time favorite movies.  When it was first shown in Germany people were screaming in their seats.  How times change!  

I could go on and on. I still agree with those that think Citizen Kane is the greatest film ever made.  I think the main reason I am so impressed with it is the cinematography.  Orson Welles was a painter and the compositions in Citizen Kane are fantastic! 

Anyway, back to my work.  I was going to start another wildflower painting but I am thinking of painting a home flower garden.  I love the way some people arrange their flowers. 

So many ideas, so little time.  Cheers on a Monday!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

My phone is always beeping and booping at me.  It makes a type of bell sound every time Facebook adds something. When someone wants to contact me directly I get a sound that makes me think of the game of ping pong. 

Anyway, the other day it started sounding off and I told Clyde I had to talk to my phone too much of the time.  He said he wished it would sprout wings and go fly off a cliff. 

Gee, do you think Clyde hates cell phones?

I seem to be doing better on the church piano as it gets worse.  Now there are two c sharps that I have to hit with a hammer to get them to play.  A lot of keys in the treble stick a little.  They play, but not evenly. 

The church is thinking about scrapping this piano and buying a new one!  I hope that happens.  It is bad enough having real bad stage fright without having to play on an instrument with an uneven keyboard.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Last time I mentioned that Clyde was complaining he was cold since he lost his fat layer.  Now he says his ex-fat is mad at him and is waiting to take over again with a vengeance!  Get rid of the low-cal popcorn and bring on the fritos! 

He is just joking.  Actually he is very glad to lose the excess weight and wishes he did it sooner.  That is not just his crazy calorie counting wife talking.  He really is glad but he does miss the warmth of the blubber layer.
