Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, People Paintings, and Chief of The Beef


Blue Ridge Parkway People Paintings

I have done a number of family and friend portraits over the years.  I have also done some commissions but most of my people paintings have been done because I wanted to.  They are for sale and a number of them have been sold.  My son’s friends were a favorite source of inspiration. 

I have also done a number of paintings of my husband and son.   I remember, years ago, when Elaine DeKooning visited Radford University, she made a remark about portraits.  She said they were like smoking cigarettes.  A habit she couldn’t break.  I don’t smoke but I do like to paint portraits and welcome commissions.

This is a very important painting for me.  Alan was nine months old and when he was two he smiled at the painting and climbed up on a chair and added the mark on my husband’s right shoulder and the one on the right side of his nose with a crayon.  He made it complete!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

My husband is very good about helping with my stir fry meal.  I do most of the work but he helps here and there.  Yesterday I asked him to pound the beef to make it tender.  I think that works much better than tenderizers.

Hey, please pound the beef.

Should I slam the ham, too?

We don’t have any ham.

Okay, I will be Chief of the Beef.

Thank you, smart alec.

 

I hope you enjoyed paintings by an artist of The Blue Ridge Parkway!
