Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Return to Latest Blue Ridge Painting and Staying Alive…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, as usual I am wondering what happened to Monday.  Someone shot another day out of a cannon.  I was very glad to get back to work on my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting and it is still coming along.  I had an art wrestling time with it last week but I think I am over that and looking forward to what will probably be the last layer. 

I can see why experts like to x-ray paintings.  All my layers are intricate systems of brushwork and come completely together at the end.  I didn’t take photos of different stages this time.  I like to do that but it slipped my mind.  So far, I don’t think I am losing very successful parts. 

It has not been one of those paintings that are a terrific struggle.  This one has been like a nice  ride down the river with just a  few bumps.  The tough ones keep me on my toes but it is nice to have one that does not fight with me that much.  Be sure to check out my Monday video above!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I love comedy!  The other day I was watching a great stand up comedian on a show I don’t usually watch and he was cracking me up. 

The last thing he said was he saw a woman with pants that had the word yoga on them.  His comment was the pants may say yoga but the woman in them  says McDonalds. 

I mentioned that to Clyde and said I had seen a lot of girls in yoga pants that say McDonalds but I don’t think I am one of them. 

I agree. 

You are a smart husband that wants to stay alive. 

That’s right.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell another Original Painting and It might leave without me…

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

I am finally to my blog after a lot of work!  I am so glad to sell another original painting to a great Virginia patron!  Secluded Home which is pictured below is a personal favorite and I am glad it will have a good home.  This one has such a nice atmosphere and intense brushwork. As always wall art prints and prints on just about anything are available by clicking the link below the painting!

Now I have to build a crate which is always a lot more work then you think it would be.  Shipping artwork is tricky.  The painting has to be double boxed and immobilized. I have to cut out the cardboard for the two boxes and put them together.  I have so many different sizes of paintings that I can’t order boxes. They don’t make the kind of box I need.  It is so easy to damage artwork and I take every precaution to prevent that from happening. 

Since I am so busy right now I have decided to upload a short video on Monday about this sale and show some other works in my studio instead of a Painting Demo.  Those videos take quite a lot of time even though they are not very long.  I do a lot of prep regarding what I will paint and how it will be presented as I try to have a pleasant conversation at the same time.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I know I have mentioned before that I don’t like all this computerization of our lives but it is great that  I can reach patrons on the internet.

Still, like I said before if they ever computerize the bathroom I will need an out house.

Clyde did that one better. He said if bathrooms are computerized he is afraid someone will hack his toilet.  It might even leave without him. 

Yikes!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Still Staring at the Rain and New Youtube!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Tiring Monday but I am sure I am not the only one saying that.  The phone is ringing all day long with scammers ready for another week of bugging me.  I do not answer my phone unless I know who is calling.  Those robo calls are really working my phone.  I don’t want to just have a cell phone for a number of reasons but that land line sure is a pain! 

I am so pleased to finally getting some work done on another Blue Ridge painting!  It is coming along and I think if I had to say which sort of painting I like to do best it would be The Blue Ridge and surrounding ridges in oil paint.  This one is an intense sunset at Wintergreen.  The patterns of light and shade on the ridges and a few houses is startling and I will be pleased to get into the studio each day to work on it. 

I would rather work with a combination of my daylight flourescent lights and some natural sunlight coming through the window but the weatherman is calling for rain for a while.  Oh well,  I can’t wait for the light I like to get to work and all my paintings are done in a series of layers so maybe the next layer will be to better lighting.

Anyway, be sure to check out my new Youtube above!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before I love movies! I get a lot of great ones from our library and netflix.  I can hardly stand to watch TV with all the commercials.  It usually takes me several days to watch one due to the fact that I have so much to do and am a workaholic.  Hard for me to sit still for the whole movie. 

Anyway, I highly recommend Permanent which is a very funny comedy about a young girl that ends up starting the school year with an awful permanent she can do nothing about. 

There is a lot more to the movie and one line will live with me forever!  I told it to Clyde and he agreed!  A lady in therapy gives her definition of family. 

A family is like a plant.  You water it and hope you didn’t get a weed.  Love it!

I wanted to get back to my latest shore painting but I got sidetracked so I am going to get in there and at least clean off my palette so I can work tomorrow.  The trick is how to paint, get all my computer work done, and still get to the lake to swim before the afternoon showers.  I hope the rain will hold off so I can swim one more time before the lifeguards quit for the summer. 

People are allowed to swim without them but I would rather have them there.  I have only used my float once this summer and I am looking forward to spinning around in it one more time.  I am a responsible adult but in many ways I never grew up and I highly recommend staying a kid and never losing the desire to have the same fun we had when we were little! 

I have finished the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere!  Getting a lot of hits on this stage as well as the first stage!  Be sure to click on the link and see all the wall art prints and prints on just about anything to the right.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday I was adding some Skyline Beauty paintings to my new Independent website and updating them on my website connected to Fine Art America.  As I added them to my new site I also let the revised listings go to social media sites. 

A twitter friend saw one of my New York skyline paintings and thought it resembled Donald Trump’s signature.  That had never occurred to me so I looked up his signature and didn’t see the resemblance so I tweeted that I had not intended the painting to look like his signature and couldn’t see the resemblance myself. 

I didn’t think the friend that tweeted the comment meant any offense but she let me know she just thought the up and down motion of the brushwork looked like his signature.

Clyde said you should have asked the friend to buy it and then she could compare it up close with Trump’s signature.  What a shameless opportunist and I wish I had thought of that!  LOL!

Anyway, here is the painting and here is Trump’s signature.  What do you think?

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When I finally got to bed last night Clyde was snoring so loud I was surprised that I was able to get to sleep.

This morning I mentioned it to him and said I hoped he didn’t have Sleep Apnea.

He said he wasn’t worried about that but he did hope he didn’t have Slap Apnea.

What’s that?

The danger of being slapped while snoring.

Well, if that has happened, I was asleep too.

I think I need a nap.

The guys are out of the house for a while so it is very quiet and I am determined to get my computer work done so I can paint.  I spent thirty minutes with internet service people trying to get messenger back on Facebook.  I did it this time without any cussing or a desire to throw the computer out the window!

You really can teach old dogs new tricks but I still don’t want to learn how to create digital paintings.  Not for me.  Love my oil paint!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Well, I am starting off the New Year with our very old computer.  My printer has a mind of its own.  I printed out a photograph with no problem and then when I tried to print out a very short text document it just printed out a blank piece of paper.

Clyde said if it could talk, it would say that’s all for 2017.  Happy New Year!

Let’s see how happy it is when it gets junked.
