I am so pleased to be back to working with a brush!  I have been spending a long time working on a portrait of my son and his girlfriend in pastels.  I love pastels because it is such a direct medium and the texture is like nothing else, but they do take a long time to build up. 

I am pleased so far and will begin the final stage soon but right now I want to work with a brush.  I have a lot of ideas for more oil paintings of The Peaks of Otter that I want to get to right after I complete the second stage of Paris Joy!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I am so proud of Clyde!  He has lost twelve pounds and has about eight to go.  As I have said before, a well-balanced diet plus calorie counting is the best way to lose weight and maintain weight loss. 

No, you can’t eat huge slabs of pie or eat mounds of french fries unless you work it off the way our ancestors did every day with farm work or similar exercise. 

But you can have things you like to eat.  He has no complaints and when he loses all the weight he can up his calorie count to a maintenance number. 

We were talking about all the other awful ways of losing weight, including Weight Watchers which is actually a great program but who wants to attend meetings? 

Clyde said you can’t be a Weight Watchers Anonymous like Alcoholics Anonymous.  Everybody knows.

Your gut will not set you free!

I am determined to get out today and go to the lake.  I just wish it were a lot hotter.  I’m sure that water is like ice water with all this cool weather.  I will get in.  I have learned to take a very cold shower with my bathing suit on and then the water is not such a shock to the system. 

My guys are at work so I will go alone.  That’s okay.  I have never had much of a problem being alone.  I think artists tend to be that way so they can be crazy without people mentioning it all the time. 

I’m a happy wacko and I don’t need to be straightened out. 

The temperature is rising.  Yea!!!!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Now that Clyde and I have been married for about 100 years I am starting to worry about his longevity.  I can’t imagine life without The Word and Bird Man. 

No marriage is perfect and there are times I want to set fire to all his stuff in the Computer room but we do get along real well and I hope we die together. 

When I was a kid I liked to read Greek myths and there was one about a woman being granted one wish and she wished she and her husband would die together.  I thought that was a great wish. 

I told Clyde that he had to last as long as me because I didn’t want anyone else. 

He replied, “Why, do you think you will do worse?  Did I set the bar that low? 

Now that was a fun retort.  He keeps me laughing!

We are back from The Peaks of Otter and I am under a pile of work.  Yuck!  The weather is gorgeous.  I can see it from my window, well, sort of.  We still have some paper covering most of it to try to ward off birds that keep banging into their reflection. 

Still, I know it is a great day and maybe I will see it up close after I sort through everything I have to do.  Onwards and upwards and then out the doorwards.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 We got away for a few days.  Since Clyde’s knee is still bothering him we decided to visit the beautiful Peaks of Otter resort!  What a great place!  I have done many paintings of the Peaks! 

Anyway, since we were only going to be gone for a few days we didn’t ask a neighbor to check on our house and phone messages.  There isn’t a lot of valuable stuff to steal in our house so we don’t worry about that. 

Clyde said, if they take the computer, fine. 

After a pause he added we couldn’t get that lucky. 

Considering how it has sucked up so much of my time and I have been known to threaten to re-locate it to the ground outside the window I can see why he said that. 

We had a great time! Clyde’s laptop had so many things wrong with it that I couldn’t get any work done! 

Now that is a vacation!

Wow! Now that was a Bill I didn’t want…


Please click on my Youtube and send it to Stumbleupon!  I just realized the Youtube I had up does not have my voice anymore – just the music so here is another one while I try to fix the one I had up originally.

 

Last night while my son was doing his laundry we heard very loud gurgling sounds coming from the bathrooms and the laundry room.  The rest of the evening was spent cleaning up the horrible back-up and calling the plumber.

The machine that was used to inspect the line was $200 and the total cost of the repair was $349!  Ouch!  I am still cleaning the floor underneath the washer.

Oh well!  Line Dancing is tonight!  That will put the smile back on my face.  Some more sales of artwork would do as well!  Here is hoping that will happen!

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!

You have to admit I am dedicated!   Or, as my husband would say, dreadicated.  That is what you get when you marry a writer.

That is When you Know you are Not Farsighted…


Please click on my Youtube and send it to Stumbleupon!

Last night at my son’s bowling league I was looking at his score from a distance and became very confused.  He was on the 10th frame and it looked like he had a 6 and a 2 and he picked up the ball to bowl again. 

I couldn’t understand why he wasn’t done and then the third ball became a spare.   Then I realized that 6 was a strike!

 

I am definitely not farsighted.  Just need the reading glasses.
