Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Excited about New Portrait Series and a Bar of Chocolate…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am real excited about my new painting!  Since I love music so much I have decided to paint some of my heroes.  I already have one of David Garrett but I can not offer it or prints of it for sale.  I can offer paintings of musicians from long ago for sale so that is another project I want to work on. 

I am starting with a portrait of Beethoven and I intend to make it very expressive and upload it in my Stages of my Artwork gallery and my Kendall Expressions gallery.  As soon as I get off the computer I will get it started

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

I don’t have anything from The Word Man today.  He hasn’t been feeling well lately.  We think he is having allergy problems.  I think he should get tested to see what is bugging him.  He is dragging his sinuses- I mean feet.

Anyway, there was a great joke on Facebook yesterday.  I love chocolate and so does Clyde so I hope this doesn’t happen to us someday.

A guy is sitting in an arm chair trying to change channels with a remote when his wife comes in and tells him it isn’t the remote, it is a  bar of chocolate. Yikes!  The fun of aging!

Nude Girl Drawings by a Blue Ridge Parkway Artist and Thirty One Stomachs…


Nude Girl Drawings by Kendall Kessler

I want to start off with one of my Youtube videos!  I am adding one a week so I want to be sure to get them out to the public!

Here are two more selections in black and white that I decided to make color versions of.  What a great experience to look at a completed drawing and re-interpret it in color!  As I have mentioned before, some of them I like better in color and some in black and white.  Art is always an experience for me that can’t be explained.

When I taught in the Art Department at Radford Univerisity I would try to explain Art to students but I found the only way I could really explain it was to have them do it, which is why my Art Appreciation classes were “Hands On”.  When students had to make visual decisions then they started to catch on to what Art is all about.  Drawing is integral to the discipline but Art is so much more then reproducing nature.

In this case I prefer the color painting to the black and white drawing.  The color accents are strong and I like the light effect better in the pastel one. 

Life with the Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

Last year I decided to take off a lot of years from our ages.  I asked my husband how it felt to be thirty years old!  The only response I got was a sour look.

Yesterday was his birthday so I asked him how it felt to turn thirty-one.  This year I got a sour look and a sour comment.

You mean turn 31 stomachs when they look at me?

Ha Ha.  No, that is not what I meant.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, People Art, and Now I can’t find my Shoes


 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I do not live on the Blue Ridge Parkway.  I live near it and so much of my artwork is about this gorgeous mountain region.  I prefer Blue Ridge Parkway Artist to Southwest Virginia Artist so I am going to stick with the slightly inaccurate one.

 

I have been blogging about so many different aspects of the Blue Ridge Mountains that I thought I would take a break and focus on the other kinds of artwork that I do.  I have never understood what people mean when they talk about artist’s block.  I just wish I had the time to paint all the things I want to paint.  I am never at a loss as to what to paint and I am never bored.  I love what I do and I am determined to get all of it out to the world!

As usual, my main gripe is I wish someone could add more hours to the day!

 

In addition to mountain paintings I also paint people I know and genre scenes so I will blog some about them.

 

I come from a family with many artists and musicians and I play the piano every day for my own fun and to keep my fingers going.

A contemporary musician I greatly admire is the internationally acclaimed violinist David Garrett.  The portrait I did of him is my only celebrity portrait.  It is based on a photograph that was taken at a concert in San Diego.  I contacted the woman that took the photograph and she gave me permission to use it.  I contacted David Garrett’s estate and received permission to paint him.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I spend a lot of time looking for my glasses.  I have to have everything carefully put away or I can’t find a thing.  I usually don’t have trouble finding my shoes but lately I have been leaving them in places that I don’t usually put them so now I am looking for them as well.

My husband has had his glasses on and actually asked co-workers where they were!

We ain’t what we used to be!

 

I hope you enjoyed my portrait of the great violinist David Garrett by an Artist of the Blue Ridge Parkway!
