Here are two more of my paintings that are based on paintings I have seen in my sleep.  I have a lot of nightmares but I also have a lot of great dreams.  I don’t try to figure them out but I am always glad when I dream of someone that has passed on.  This happens a lot and my father and my grandparents live in my dreams.  It is great to see them again and the dreams are almost always happy ones.

Dream River is typical of these paintings.  There is usually a lot of this icy blue color and objects seem to sway around the space. Water is one of my favorite subject matters in my work so I am not surprised that I dream of river paintings.  I often dream I am at the beach in the ocean.

I especially like this one.  There is something about the girl’s eyes that is mystical. I have always leaned towards  scientific explantions of strange events but I like to quote this line from Hamlet.  There are more things in heaven and earth , Horatio, than are dreamt of in your philosphy.

 

Towhee Hill Studio Visits

 

I wanted to be sure to let readers know that I do schedule studio visits.  I like to show people my work in a home environment.  My work looks best when it is illuminated from outside natural light and in incandescent light.

I do require a phone call so I can make sure the visitor won’t trip in my studio and to make sure I have out any particular works  the visitor is interested in. 

Give me a call or leave a comment here and I will get back to you as soon as possible

For a painting that started off great, this one is really grinding me down.  I am not giving up, just arm-wrestling away!  I don’t want to claim victory and retreat but it has been rough. 

Like all artists say, they sure were easy when I first started painting.  They get harder and harder as you go but I love to paint so there is no stopping now!  Look out studio.  Here I come!

This morning my son came into the computer room coughing and said he was sick!  Arghh!  Too much to do all the time!  Well, he has been to the doctor and I am back to work.  Cold and flu season sure gums up the works!

Production Problems. Writer/Actor Disputes…


I finally got my latest Youtube up!  I am glad I am not a performing artist.  The writer and actor argued over the script and it took a while to resolve the conflict.  LOL!  I think it is great!  Not exactly what I wanted but it is close so I am happy!

I will put it here tomorrow after the editing is done on Youtube.

I am so pleased to sell another one of my Blue Ridge Mountain paintings!  I will miss this one very much.  It is one of my favorite mountain scenes and I had it hanging by my computer.

So glad it has a good home.  I can’t take them with me.  It is very important to place them where they will be appreciated!

Beautiful view of Radford Virginia’s popular park!

 

Today I came across a very interesting ghost story written by “an old man” according to the writer.  It is intriguing to me that the author has a theory that perhaps we see these things when we are young and more perceptive to what is around us. He has not had a supernatural experience since this story.

As I have mentioned before, I am a skeptical person but I have had four strange events in my life that I cannot explain.  Interestingly enough, the latest one was a few months ago and I am not young by most people’s estimation of what young is.

 

Lunch Bucket Man

The writer’s story happened when he was a student.  He was traveling home to Roanoke via Rt. 81 via Wildwood Road.  Supposedly the Wildwood Inn has quite a spooky reputation. The Inn was closed and he was pretty much the only car on the road.

As he approached the ramp to Wildwood Road he saw a tall thin man holding a lunch bucket, not a pail, but a bucket.  The writer said he had seen that type of bucket carried by coal miners.  When the car lights passed over the man there was no shadow.  He didn’t move or change expression.

He seemed to vanish and the writer tried hard to figure out what had happened but could not come up with a logical explanation.  He has not had a similar experience.  This was in the early 1980’s.

I found this story on Ghost of America online.

 

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

The Mount Rogers 40th Naturalist Rally is tomorrow!  I wanted to be sure to alert everyone again to this great event!

The 40th Annual Mount Rogers Naturalist Rally

This BRDC signature event highlights the crown jewel of the Blue Ridge Mountains in Southwest Virginia.  The Mount Rogers area, which includes Virginia’s three tallest peaks, has long fascinated scholars and explorers.  Not only is there a wide variation in altitude, there are many different ecosystems and mini-ecosystems within a short drive or hike of each other.

The 2014 Rally will be May 9 & 10.

Friday Night Speaker –  Nancy Lee Adamson PhD, Pollinator Conservation Specialist – East Region, The Xerces Society for Invertebrate Conservation. An Introduction to Native Bees and Other “Beneficial” Arthropods of the Mid-Atlantic – learn about common native bees we can support by protecting and planting pollinator habitat. The program will highlight nesting habits of some of the 500 species of native bees in Virginia, as well as other pollinators, predators, and parasitoids that benefit from pollinator habitat.

Friday night entertainment – Ronald and Ellie Kirby will be bringing in the evening with some traditional old time tunes.

DOOR PRIZE! – David Richert has offered a free afternoon consultation on forest management as the friday night door prize.
