Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Very Pleased with Latest Wildflower painting and Porched…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Wow, no rain today! The New river rose almost as high as a seven foot sign at the Dog Park!  It has never been that high before.  What a flood! 

It is great to see the sunshine today and my guys were able to take walks.  I will get out, too. 

I could not be more pleased with my latest wildflower painting!  I know I have said this before but it bears repeating.  As I told my students when they were discouraged, you will never get exactly what you want, but if you work hard you can get close.  It would be boring if an artist did not have something to work towards. 

Well, this one is so close!  I will be fine tuning it but it really is what I wanted and, as usual, I am not certain how I got there but I balanced between control and accident, and they came together beautifully! 

I will have it in my portfolio soon.  Please check out my videos above and the Safe Grocery Shopping video if you haven’t seen them and have a great day! Also, I have included a face mask link for Yin Yang Flow. What a wild face mask that would be!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned many times, Clyde incessantly studies wildlife with an emphasis on birds.  Due to the torrential rain we had for days he couldn’t get out to the New River or the creeks for days.

Then he couldn’t even check out the bird populations in the back yard so he studied what he could from the carport. 

I had to tease him. 

I never thought I would see the day that you are porched.  Rain doesn’t stop you but seven feet high floods from the New River has benched you big time. 

Yeah.  I am a dedicated naturalist but I am not about to drown for my studies.

Right. That is taking it too far.

Today he had a break but it is clouding up big time once again.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Sanitizing every thing in sight and The Unfriendly Ghost…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Beautiful day.  I am seeing more and more signs of life outside. I am still sanitizing every thing that can be sanitized.  People are being great about keeping their distance. My husband is in the back checking out bird populations which is something he lives for.  I, of course, paint and play my piano. 

I finally understand how to work my new recording gizmo and will soon have a Youtube of my shore work with my own piano music.  I wrote a piece a while back and had it copyrighted.  Youtube has some nice music but I want to add my own like I did when I first started uploading to my channel.  Now, I have better recording equipment so I am looking forward to some great videos! 

Be sure sure to check out my channel which is Kendall Kessler.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I are both amazed at certain groups of people that refuse to participate in social distancing during this crisis.  When I went to Kroger today a store clerk asked me if I wanted to have my shopping cart sanitized.  I said yes and thank you!  She said she has to ask first because some customers don’t want their cart sanitized. They think the Covad-19 is a hoax. 

Also, there are reports of pastors that are still holding church services.  Why can’t they hold their services over the internet? 

Clyde said if he dies as the result of people that refuse to take precautions he is going to come back as a ghost and haunt them.  Shoelaces are going to be untied and tied over and over again.  Phone chargers will be unplugged.  Plates of food will mysteriously fall to the floor face down.  Look out!  The Word and Bird Man will get you if you don’t do your best to keep from getting this disease and spreading it to others! 

LOL!  Important to laugh at a time like this.  Stay safe everyone!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Getting used to being a Shut In and Bad Decisions…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, my naturalist husband is still getting out.  He is being careful to steer clear of other people but he is getting out.  I am just going to the grocery store when needed but when it gets a little warmer I will take a walk in beautiful Wildwood Park. 

We are very fortunate in that we have what we need and are just staying inside.  Like my favorite Virus joke says, For the first time in human history we can save the world’s people by lying on the floor and watching T.V.  Let’ not screw this up. 

I am certainly doing my part but I am not on the floor for TV.  I reserve that space for Yoga.  My great teacher is sending us sessions on the computer which works just fine!  I can’t seem to find ones that I like so far on youtube.  I either find ones that aren’t much more than sleeping on the floor or I find ones that have so many Downward Facing Dogs that I almost start barking. My teacher always has great sessions and I am sure she can use the money so most of my yoga stuff is with her. 

Be sure to check out my latest Dallas Texas skyline painting Demo Youtube above and stay safe!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I were trying to order hand sanitizer online.  Actually I was trying to order it and had a hard time deciding what kind to get so I got Clyde online to do it.  There were so many selections and Clyde asked me which ones I want. 

I don’t know.  I am not good at making decisions.  I married you. 

Ha ha. 

Now you know I am just kidding. 

Well, all online hand sanitizers are sold out so it doesn’t matter which one to select.  There aren’t any.  

Well, we may not be able to get any hand sanitizer but I still have you! 

My mind reels with sarcastic replies. 

I think I better get back to the studio before I get into any more trouble.

LOL!

I wish we were at an open beach right now, virus free.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell Prints of Sunflower Burst and Kindergarteners Rock!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Not getting out much but I did want to buy a new thermometer.  Of course, our digital one decided to retire and I went to two Drug stores and surprise, surprise!  They were all out.  On well,  we seem to be okay and if I have to go to the store I wear gloves that get drowned in boiling water when I get home.   This is awful but we can’t complain that much.  We aren’t hurting for anything except a thermometer that works and I always have more than enough to do all the time. 

I am so pleased that people continue to look at my work and buy originals and prints.  A great Kansas patron bought three prints of one of my most vibrant florals, Sunflower Burst!  This time the prints are on carry-all pouches. It is fun to think of all the items that have been bought with my artwork on them!  Most of my sales are originals and wall art prints but prints on just about anything can be purchased. 

I am very excited about starting a small wildflower painting tomorrow!  I always enjoy painting wildflowers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde doesn’t have a Facebook personal account and doesn’t visit the site but I do, so I like to tell him about the jokes that I see on it.  There is a lot of great humor there! 

Recently someone posted that since we have learned to wash our hands now we can go on to colors and shapes! 

Clyde said he could hold up a pillow and say one, then hold up an identical pillow and say two, and so on. 

Maybe we do need to get back to that great informative book, “All I really need to know, I learned in Kindergarten”.  I should probably brush up on that book myself. LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell a Print of Tall Blue Vase and Dinosaur Bones?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, I am not going stir crazy yet but I am not getting out much.  I am worried about the virus and have been washing my hands all the time now.  I have to go grocery shopping but I figured out a way to do that with minimal contamination. 

I try to keep my distance from other shoppers as much as possible and I wear gloves.  I sanitize my hands before I put the gloves on.  Then when I get home I take them off and sanitize my hands again so I can pick the gloves up and put them in the wash.  I hope that helps. 

We don’t have a reported case here but I have heard we don’t have the testing kits so there may be cases that are not documented. I never thought I would see the day that the whole world is quarantined. 

Anyway, I have a new video up on my latest Dallas Skyline Painting.  It is very short because the demo tape I made didn’t work out.  I was just about done when the camera messed up so I made a short video of the painting and my latest Blue Ridge painting. 

Looking forward to a new oil painting as I continue to paint acrylic skylines and other abstracts.

I am very pleased to sell a large metal print of Tall Blue Vase to a great Texas patron!  Check it out below!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I love Russel Stover pecan sandies.  We consider them to be a staple and I hate it when we run out. Kroger used to have big bags of them but now they just have small boxes. 

I was so surprised to see them on sale for $1.50 so I bought one hoping they were not stale.  I figured they would be good but Clyde said watch out for dinosaur bones.

Okay, I know exaggeration is one of the key components of humor but dinosaur bones in candy?  I think that is a bit much. LOL!

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, I couldn’t miss Line Dance Class today so when I arrived I put sanitizer on my hands.  Then I put gloves on and kept them on during the whole class.  I stood six feet away from each dancer. 

When I got in my car to leave I took the sanitizer out again, took off my gloves and put that stuff on again. 

When I got home I put the gloves in the wash.  I hope that did it.  I don’t want to stop living to keep from dying but the Rec Center where the classes are held may shut down.  I think most everyone else is smarter than me regarding this pandemic. 

On well.  I have the CDS from out performances and it doesn’t take much room to dance away.  Now the question is whether or not I go to Yoga class tomorrow.  Anyway, I finished my latest Blue Ridge painting of a Wintergreen Sunset.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde told me a long time ago that when retired he would get some sophisticated equipment to record bird songs.  Now he says he probably won’t do that. 

Why? 

My hearing is not what it used to be.  A lot of Bird Watchers our age can’t hear certain bird songs. I can’t even hear a Golden Crowned Kinglet. 

Or me asking you to do the dishes.  Just joking. Clyde is great about taking turns washing the dishes and I hope he does get that equipment. 

To quote the very fun movie Galaxy Quest.  Never give up! Never surrender!
