Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Having a Great Day!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


Please click on my latest Youtube!  

My husband and I had a great anniversary today!  We had lunch out together and took a relaxing walk in Wildwood Park.  Such a lovely place, and, as usual, I was educated on a few things by my naturalist guy!  I like being married to such a knowledgeable man from Ferrum, VA.

I never really grew up so I ask lots of questions just like a kid and he can answer almost all of them.  The only thing I have ever stumped him on is certain cultivated flowers.  He knows all the wild ones and I get lectures all the time about invasive plant species that are causing problems but I have to look up some private garden flowers.

Unlike the hilarious guys on the Expert Panel on The Red Green Show, Clyde will say I don’t know.

It is Time to Claim Victory and Retreat!

My latest painting started out great and then took me through so many twists and turns that I am dizzy.  Painting is hard work and I am starting a new one while this one sulks in the corner for a while. 

It is close to done but I have to get away from it.   I hope to have it up soon.  It has a lot of strengths.

This will be a Difficult Decision…

Please click on my latest Youtube and send it to Stumbleupon!


An article on me and my artwork will be in the June print issue of The Inflectionist and the CEO contacted me about which paintings to use.  I have 699 pieces of artwork in my portfolio right now so I am going to have a hard time deciding which work to use.


He has some in mind but I’m not sure they are the best choices to represent me.  Decisions, decisions!  I am sure we will work it out!


The Inflectionist is a magazine for a small group of writers and artists. 

Most of the writers possess journalism degrees and some of the team are actually well known figures in the music and literary industries, including Kevin Stea (who was in Madonnas “Vogue” and Michael Jacksons “Black or White”) and Adam Jacot De Boinod (a writer for the TV show “QI”).


Glad to be asked to be part of this magazine.  Now to figure out what to put in the article.

More Roanoke Beauty near The Blue Ridge Parkway and Radford Roosting Festival this week-end!

My Artwork

leavinfroanokecopyrightLeaving Roanoke       Original tempera painting in white mat   18″x24″     $864.00

Prints on paper or canvas available at    KENDALL KESSLER ART

Here is another Roanoke painting that looks at the Blue Ridge Mountains from the inside.  In “Leaving Roanoke” I have captured a special moment when the car lights and street light have just come on but it isn’t dark yet.  The colors of light and shade are still prominent and the mood is serene even though the traffic is heavy.

The view of the mountain ridge reminds us of  a great city that is nestled in the gorgeous Blue Ridge Mountains!

I also have some of my work on Youtube!  Please check out my paintings there as well as my website.  I am an amateur pianist so I included a number of piano pieces I like as background music.

I have one about my Beautiful Nude series which includes my drawing, “Reaching Out”, which was chosen out of over 3 million works of art on Fine Art America to be on The Mindy Project.  It is in the main character’s office and there have been many shots of it in various episodes.  The show took a break but will be back in April.
