Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am real pleased with my latest Skyline Beauty painting of Richmond!  I was going to just have one layer in my portfolio as I was happy with the loose brushwork and spontaneity of the start but now I am using some very complicated small brushwork on it so I will include this work in my Stages of my Art gallery.  Here is the first layer!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

That female cardinal is either going to get rid of the hussy in the window or die trying.  The first thing I do in the morning is practice my piano music for a half and hour.  I don’t have time to practice more.  I wish I did.

Since the cardinal is now trying to scare her image away that obviously moved to the living room window after Clyde papered the computer room window, she is adding a beat that I don’t want.  I have always found timing to be a little difficult and would prefer a conductor but this is ridiculous.  She is not keeping time at all! 

I have a metronome but I am not a robot so that doesn’t help either. I change the tempo to suit my expression.  I don’t want the cardinal to pummel itself to death, but I wish it would give up.

Oh well, The Bird Man wanted me to announce a rather rare siting today – A Forsters Tern was spotted in Radford, VA this morning.
