The great event will take place with snacks and music at Christ Lutheran Church!  My illustrations will be flashing on the screens and I will bring the cover painting! Everyone is invited!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

The Word Man and I are looking forward to the book launch of Fiddling at Midnight’s Farmhouse on June 16th at Christ Lutheran!  His launch is one of a series of literature readings that are hosted by Christ Lutheran. 

Clyde came up with the name Rough Draft Coffee House.  We celebrate creativity in a coffee house atmosphere. 

The name that Clyde came up with goes great with a writers joke I saw on the internet this morning.  Why are writers always cold?  They are surrounded by rough drafts!  Love it!

I am working hard at getting all the files of the illustrations for Fiddling at Midnight’s Farmhouse to the publisher today and tomorrow.  I have nineteen illustrations plus the cover and a few of my paintings on my website are going to be used for the book, too.  I have some very expressive paintings that Clyde thinks will work well with certain poems.  Lots to do but I can see the finish line!  YES!!!!!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

We are still ranting away about TV commercials.

Last night Clyde got so irritated with the length of the commercial break that he said he could drive to Christiansburg and back before the program returned.

Christiansburg is about a fifteen minute drive from here.  That sounds about right.

Here’s a good commercial joke I found on Google.

The key to eating healthy.  Don’t eat any food that is advertised on TV.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Running in Circles and Commercial Rewrite…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!  I will have a new one in the next blog!

 

I am working away on so many things that I keep getting mixed up and have to tell myself what to do next.  I just finished another Youtube so I can get that up soon and I have done a lot of Social Media Marketing but there is always more of that to do.  I can’t get to a painting today but I hope to do a few more illustrations for Fiddling at Midnight’s Farmhouse before I send all the files to the publisher next week.

I have a Bridal Shower to go to tomorrow so I will have to try to get one done before that.  In a great movie, Mom’s Night Out, the main character has a sign on the inside of her cabinet that says Keep Calm and Mommy on.

I guess I need one that says Keep Calm and Art On.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Commercials, commercials, commercials.  I don’t watch a lot of TV but when I do I am overwhelmed with ads.  I especially hate the drug ads with their wonderful advice to ask your doctor if the drug is right for you.  I never go to the doctor unless I absolutely have to and I let him proscribe the drugs, not TV.

Clyde has a great re-write for the one that claims her loss of energy is restored due to the drug.

Before I started doing these commercial I was poor.  Now I am rich and I don’t care who buys the drug.

I think that sums it up.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back on the Cover and What the Heck is that?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am going to try to modify the cover illustration for Fiddling at Midnight’s Farmhouse.  The publisher said the only way the painting can be cropped is without part of the moon.  I am hoping I can bring it down a little without disrupting the spacing that she has established.  I was hoping it would fit perfectly but it doesn’t.  She is going to have the entire painting in the book for one of the poems.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Sometimes I have a real life funny for Clyde.  One of my patrons that purchased two of my Skyline Beauty paintings saw Heart Cloud on Facebook and sent me this message.

What the heck is that?   We both had to laugh.  I certainly don’t mind getting comments like that from a patron!  I always appreciate honest reactions.

I told him he would have to get the book to see how the painting illustrates the poem.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde liked the bird jokes I posted last time in honor of his contributions to this section and, of course, he came up with one of his own right after I quoted the others.

 

What did the buzzard say to the grocer?   This meat is too fresh.   Love it!

Trying to get a few more illustrations done for Fiddling at Midnight’s Farmhouse but I really am getting tired and a little low on ideas.  I will check out some more poems today and hopefully get one done today and one tomorrow.  I will be glad to get back to my Skyline paintings, Kendall Expressions, and my main work of this beautiful area.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When I started this blog I really didn’t know what to say other than stuff about my artwork which is difficult.  I communicate through pictures, not words.  After a while I just wanted to have some humor so I started this section of the blog.   I thought I would probably burn out and stop trying for funny stuff even though Clyde supplies me with a lot of it without trying.  It is just the way he is.

I am pleased that I keep coming up with funnies here.  Sometimes I do borrow from other sources but I still keep this section going and I think as long as I have a blog I will keep on laughing as I write.

To cease to learn is to cease to live.  Well, to cease to laugh is also to cease to live!

In honor of my main contributor to this section here are some great bird jokes.

 

What did the chicken say to the duck when it was about to cross the road?

Don’t do it.  You will never hear the end of it.

What did one bird with binoculars watching people say to the other bird.

It is a legitimate hobby.

What did the Blue Footed Booby say to his friend about his feet?

Yeah, I wanted black but this is the only color they had that fit.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Presents New Illustration and Lizard Jokes


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

There sure are a lot of image thieves on the internet.  One of my paintings is still on a Hong Kong based site.  They are selling canvas prints of it.  They have a US office but the lawyers still couldn’t do anything about it.  I know of one artist that just doesn’t even do reverse image searches.  He would rather ignore the problem.  I am not giving up.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I was so pleased with my latest lizard illustration for Clyde’s book that I told him how much I liked it before I showed it to him so he wouldn’t be sleeping on the couch for finding fault with it.

He wasn’t married yesterday and was quite pleased with it.  I think he was sincere so I didn’t need to threaten him after all. LOL!

Just for fun I looked up some lizard jokes and found a bunch of great ones!

What do you call a lizard that tells jokes?  A Stand up Chameleon.

What do you call a lizard that sings!  A Raptile.

I mentioned those to Clyde and he came up with one.  What do you call a reptile that wants to succeed?  A Iwanaguana.
