Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is not looking forward to the Snowstorm


Please click on my Youtube!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I love to look at snow but I hate being socked in when the roads are covered.  Our roads have been cleared so I will be running around to stores and the library before the really big storm dumps a blanket on us. 

Heavy snow storm is predicted for tomorrow starting this evening.  I hope it fizzles.  I still haven’t gotten to the store for boots.  Maybe I can get that done today.  

Winter cheers!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, New Large Painting in the Works, and The Devil doesn’t Charge Rent…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my  latest Youtube! It has a copy of The Inflectionist magazine that has my painting on the cover!  Great article on me, too!

I am excited about the start of a new floral landscape that is based on a field near the Radford hospital!  The light is not good enough to continue work on my latest portrait but it is good enough for several layers on a new work.  I really ought to write a book and entitle it, “Looking for the Light”. 

My work is so complex that every shift in light makes such a difference in how it looks.  I hate to work on the last layer on a cloudy day.  My Daylight flourescent lights aren’t good enough to compensate for cloudy days. 

Well, time to prepare the canvas!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

 

I like to watch court cases.  They are oftentimes hilarious.  The other day a woman was suing a land lord who was letting her board for one year for free due to some kind of situation between them. 

The judge was completely unsympathetic.  The woman resorted to claiming she had been through hell with this land lord.  Clyde’s quip was “Well, if she has been through hell, then the Devil doesn’t charge rent.”

I Hope the Wind Dies Down…


Please click on my latest Youtube!

 

The paint on my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting is close enough to dry for a photoshoot but it is windy outside.  I hope it dies down so I can get this painting on the internet.  

I am afraid the wind will blow over my tripod and then the camera will be damaged.   Fingers crossed!  I am very excited about this new work so I will try get a shot of it soon!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

I like to include as much humor as I can in my blog and most of it is supplied by The Word Man.  He cracks me up on a daily basis but sometimes I see something on Facebook that I think is so good I like to put it here. 

The other day there was a great joke that looks sexist at first.  I love it!

Women belong in the kitchen

Men belong in the kitchen

Everybody belongs in the kitchen

The kitchen has food.

It is definitely my favorite place, except when I have to cook or do dishes.  Oh well.  All great things have a price!

What a Great Party!


August 2nd we celebrated my mother’s 92nd Birthday and it was great!  She is having some health problems which is to be expected but she didn’t leave to rest.  I think the party would have gone on and on but most of the relatives had a long way to travel.

Such a great group!  We talked and laughed and had so much fun!

Staunton Theater Ghost Story

 

Yesterday I wrote about the little girl that haunts a Staunton Virginia theater.  There is a little more to the story and another story about a male ghost on the premises!

Sometimes rolls of coins would disappear and then show up in stacks and patterns in the projectionist room. It looked as though the ghost was playing with them. The girl seemed to be most active in the upper story and the projectionist room.

A tall man dressed in a Victorian suit has been seen in what was the orchestra pit.  The suit did not fit.  It was too tight across the shoulders. As I mentioned yesterday, the theater was originally an opera house.

I found this story online at Ghosts of America.

Staunton Theater Ghost Story

 

The Gypsy 4 Theater of Staunton was once an Opera House. A fire broke out in the mid 1900’s and significant damage was done to the building.

According to a former projectionist, very strange things have happened there.  Once while threading a movie the person’s eight inch braid was lifted straight up in the air.

A young blond girl, dressed in white and about eight years old was sitting on the pallet playing with the projectionist’s hair!  She silently laughed and vanished.  The projectionist’s mother

claimed to have run ins with the girl also, and she is a skeptic concerning paranormal sitings.

I found this ghost story on Ghosts of America online publication.

 

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

I have mentioned several times that my naturalist husband is uploading bird sightings to Cornell University.  Yesterday he told me he is ranked 10th in the country for this information.  In a number of blogs I wrote he is uploading over 2000 files.

I don’t know how I got that so wrong!  He has already uploaded 15,000 files and says he has over 30,000!  Wow!
