More Children Paintings

Here are two more child paintings.  I especially like the movement in Bubble.  The colors seem to dance around the little girl!

When my son was young he loved to blow bubbles and my husband bought one of those huge bubble blowers and had all the neighborhood kids standing around him while he sent giant squirming bubbles into the air!

Bubble   Original 20″ x 16″ Oil Painting     $840

 Bubble is a wonderful genre painting. The little girl has a fancy bubble blower and is focusing on the large bubble in front of her. This painting has great color nuances and pleasant, flowing space. It is on stretched canvas and professionally framed in a gorgeous gold stained auburn frame.

Summer Fun is an energetic pastel painting of a boy playing in a river. The colors and textures make this a vibrant genre scene of the beautiful warm weather.

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

My husband starts work much earlier than most people so he is my alarm clock.  He calls me from work and most of the time I am already up.  Today I was looking at some Facebook posts when I found something I liked very much!

 

After all these years with The Word Man I greatly appreciate word play.  I liked it before I met him but now it is especially funny to me!  

The one I saw today was – I JUST MADE A SONG ABOUT A TORTILLA.  ACTUALLY IT IS MORE OF A WRAP.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist and Seize the Day? Is there a way to Nail it Down?

I have been trying all day to get a blog done but this day has shot by so fast I am looking at all the things I needed to do in the rear view mirror! 

My husband had a weird suggestion.  He noticed I still have my mallet and chisel from a sculpture class I took a long time ago.  Maybe I can pound or carve it into a better day that doesn’t fly by? 

Like I said.  Weird suggestion, but what else would you expect  from The Word and Bird Man?

 

muchroompickercopyrightThe Mushroom Picker   Original 32″ x 40″ Oil Painting $2580.00

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

 

The Mushroom Picker is a languid view of a mushroom picker at Pandapas Pond in Giles County. This is one of many sites that my husband, Clyde, researches for birds and butterflies. On one of his excursions he came upon this man and took a slide of him which I used for the painting. The light in this scene was intense and flickering though out the bank.

It looked like it was dancing around the figure. 

 

watergitlbigMy Turn  Original 20″ x 19″ Pastel Painting    $790

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

 

My Turn is a delightful pastel painting of a toddler watering flowers. I love to watch children.  They are in a world all their own.  It is no wonder they like to believe in fairies!  The flower garden is on the edge of a woods and the cool foliage colors beautifully accent the warm colors in the girl’s hair and clothing. I live to paint but I also work in pastels and other mediums.

I am very proud of my American Artist Award from famed pastelist Daniel Greene.

More People Paintings

Sometimes I like to paint people that I don’t know in an intensely expressive manner.  The vendor here is bathed in coloristic light and strong cool shadows.

Vendor is an expressive, colorful look at a street vendor in a parking lot. The color contrast makes this painting an especially eye-catching work. My work is unique to me but it harkens back to both Impressionism and Expressionism. This painting is one of my more Expressionistic works like the work of Edvard Munch, one of my favorite painters.

Intensity   Painting Not For Sale

Intensity is my most expressive portrait. The color contrast and strong brushwork make this an exciting visual experience. I love to push warm/cool color relations and get them to sing. This painting is a great example of that concept. The man is lost in thought but not oblivious of his surroundings. The shadows add to the expression and emphasize the value patterns that connect the space.

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

A few days ago a bear was spotted in downtown Radford!  This certainly doesn’t happen very often but the incident inspired my husband to come up with his own report!  Leave it to my husband to turn a scary event into something funny!

 

Early this evening a bear was sighted running a red light in downtown Radford. 

It is supposed that it was late for a fraternity pledge or a movie.  No police officer  bothered to stop it for a ticket.
