Pleased to Present New Painting of Mabry Mill in Fall!


Please click on my Youtube!

 

I am so pleased to present my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting of the beautiful Mabry Mill in Meadows of Dan. This is a very popular site on the parkway and the fall colors greatly accent the lovely sight!  I don’t prints available yet but hope to have them available in the next few days!

I am excited about adding my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting to my portfolio!   It has been a lot of work and I will be glad to move on to another Blue Ridge Vista. 

I am also pleased with my new series, Suggestions!  I am really letting the paint tell me what to do and the results have been great!  I am working on a small scale so I can work fast and keep the spontaneity in them.

I still have a lot of florals to present here.  Here are two of my favorites!

Hibiscus Bush  Original  11″ x 14″ Oil Painting     $313

Prints on Paper, Canvas, Metal, Greeting Cards, !phone and Galaxy phone cases Available at   KENDALL KESSLER ART

 

Hibiscus Bush is a colorful painting of a neighbors hibiscus bush in Radford city, VA. Sometimes one thing will catch my eye and I want to celebrate it with my colors and textures. I love the way the light hits this bush.

Tulip Dance  Original  10″ x 8″ Oil Painting     $168

Prints on Paper, Canvas, Metal, Greeting Cards, !phone and Galaxy phone cases Available at   KENDALL KESSLER ART

 

Tulip Dance is an exceptionally vibrant floral. I am especially pleased with the energy and bursting flow to this work. I was listening to David Garrett’s crossover version of Vivaldi’s Summer when I painted it. I think I captured the energy in that music and translated into an exciting flower dance.

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

My husband and I have been married for more decades than I care to admit to.  Over the years I have seen a lot of couples call it quits which is why I refer to us as dinosaurs.  We go way, way back, just like those huge creatures.  Today it occurred to me which dinosaur we are!  The Tyrannosaurus Wrecks!  Perfect!

 

Cheers!

Wading is another sensuous, colorful painting from my series, Suggestions. I am starting with an abstract expressionist surface and then looking for forms that appear in the paint. This time I saw a nude leaning forward so I brought her out and put her water. I think the peaceful effect is beautiful.

Hybrid Beauty (1)Hybrid Rose   Original  5″ x 7″ Oil Painting   $75

 

Hybrid Beauty is a small gem painting with intricate color nuances and sensuous brushwork. This is a painting for people that like a constant change of texture and color though out a painting. The painting is in a solid wood molded frame.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

I am so glad I married someone that makes me laugh and he said the other night that he was glad he married someone that likes to laugh.  We haven’t had to call 911 yet but I do get to the point that I need to stop and breath!   Whenever I find something on Facebook that I think is a real crack up I show him.  The other day there was a great one that I know Clyde can truly relate to.  He has worked with the Forest Service for many years and has had a few close calls with bears and one time he had to confront one running at him.  He knew what to do so thankfully I am not a widow.

 

Anyway on Facebook there was a picture of a bear running toward the person that took the picture.  The caption read, “Not a runner?”  Now you are!

So much to do before I head out to Draper for a Christmas Line Dance Performance!  We do a lot of Christmas dances and I hope this one goes well.  It is amazing how things can mess up.  One time I was so close to some sort of box on stage that I nearly tripped!  This stage is small so I hope no one falls off.  Cheers!

I am close to done on my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting and am very pleased with it!  Here are two more favorite florals.

 

rosetrio (1)Rose Trio  Original Oil Painting has been Sold

Prints on Paper, Canvas, Metal, Greeting Cards, !-phone and Galaxy phone cases Available at  KENDALL KESSLER ART

 

Rose Trio is an intense impasto oil painting with strong color contrast and complicated surface. The painting was applied in many layers to achieve a surface that continually changes throughout the work. The brushwork turns an everyday subject into a great visual experience.

 

tallvasebig (1)

The Tall Blue Vase  Original Oil Painting has been Sold

Prints on Paper, Canvas, Metal, Greeting Cards, !-phone and Galaxy phone cases Available at  KENDALL KESSLER ART

Tall Blue Vase is one of my favorite floral paintings. The vase has a beautiful surface that works well with the assortment of flowers that catch the light in an arc.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before I have always had to watch what I eat.  Unlike many people I talk to I was never able to eat what I wanted without gaining weight.  I continue to fight the Battle of the Bulge and don’t see an end in sight.

For Thanksgiving I brought a carrot cake to my mother-in-laws.  I always bring something but she prefers to cook most of the dinner.  Unfortunately the carrot cake wasn’t a big hit so it came home with us.  I asked my husband to take it to work with him so his office could enjoy it.  He forgot but said he would take it the next day.  It was still there and it was calling to me but cake is one thing I hardly ever eat because I eat too much of it.

I solved the problem.  I taped a note that said, “Take me with you”, on the container.  He leaves early in the morning and I was pleased to see it was gone! 

Now where are those chocolate chip cookies I made?

Great Start on a New Series!


 

Please Click on my Youtube!

 

Yesterday I started a new series of paintings that I am going to work on at the same time as my new Blue Ridge paintings.  The series is called Suggestions. These are paintings that are done by letting images appear in an abstract surface.  The first one suggested an eye and cheek bone so I went with a face.  Looking forward to the next one!

Life with Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

I have been concerned about our environment and our resources since I was twelve and it is no wonder I married a dedicated naturalist.  I agree with the person that posted on Facebook the other day there is no planet B so we need to be concerned about this one.    If you research a lot of charitable organizations you will find that a lot of them are more of a business than a helpful group.  Many of them have very highly paid administrators and little of the money they acquire goes to the actual cause.

I mention all this because I would like to recommend an environmental cause for cyber Monday but I can’t be sure the money will go where it should but I have received notice from The Chesapeake Bay Foundation that portions of the sales on Amazon today will go to help the bay.  I am considering buying some things today and using the code.  I hope my efforts will be useful towards cleaning up the Bay.

 

If anyone knows whether or not this is a legitimate promotion, I would be glad to hear from you.  I want to help but I do not want to be misled.

Here is the notice that was sent to me.

 

Just make sure to use this link—cbf.org/amazon—for all your purchases. For everything you buy through this link, a portion of the purchase will go straight to our work to restore the Bay and its rivers and streams.
