Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is ending 2015 on Another Technology Rant…


Please click on my Youtube!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

My back is much better today so I am working away and ranting about the problems associated with technology.  I have come very close to hurling my wireless mouse out the window.  It keeps cutting off.  Lost signal.  Sometimes it cuts off  a few seconds after the signal is restored.

That’s the first argh. 

The second one is about my video software.  I figured out how to change the speed of the video but it stops every so often with an announcement that the software is at work modifying it.  I don’t know if that grey sign will be there when I export it because for some strange reason it won’t export when I hit export.

Oh well. It is New Years Eve and I should try to celebrate and enjoy the evening.  I will do that as soon as I can tear myself away from the machine that helps and aggravates at the same time.

 

Cheers!  Happy New Year!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Loves Her Model!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I have worked with a lot of models over the years when I taught at Radford University.  Some of them had no idea how to hold a pose and some of them were fantastic.  They knew just what to do and I hardly had to tell them a thing.

Well, I love my current model!  I had no idea my husband would be so easy to work with.  He gets  back into the pose the next day and gets it right on the money!  That is usually quite a problem to get the sitter right back in the same pose since the work has already been started but he nailed it without any help!

 

This is great!  I love working from a model!

Please click on my latest Youtube!  

Glad to get some rain!  We have some tomato plants and they were sagging a little.  Clyde can’t eat tomatoes so I think it is real nice of him to plant them for me and Alan.  I am trying real hard to get all of my work done so I can get out of here. 

I am one of those rare girls that does not like to shop but my summer shirts are falling apart so I am going to suck it up and get to a store.  Maybe I will break my ten minute shopping record!

 Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

I love to goad Clyde because he almost always comes up with  a funny I like to post.  Laughter is very important to me and sometimes he makes me laugh so hard I have to gasp for break.  So far, we haven’t had to call 911!

As I have mentioned before I have always thought Clyde was a handsome man and he still is after all these years.  He thinks I am kind, blind, and out of my mind but I don’t agree.

Since yesterday was our anniversary I told him I married Gorgeous George.  His reply was then why did you marry me, too?  Ha ha!  I am not a bigamist, you fool!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Having a Great Day!


 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

Please click on my latest Youtube!  

My husband and I had a great anniversary today!  We had lunch out together and took a relaxing walk in Wildwood Park.  Such a lovely place, and, as usual, I was educated on a few things by my naturalist guy!  I like being married to such a knowledgeable man from Ferrum, VA.

I never really grew up so I ask lots of questions just like a kid and he can answer almost all of them.  The only thing I have ever stumped him on is certain cultivated flowers.  He knows all the wild ones and I get lectures all the time about invasive plant species that are causing problems but I have to look up some private garden flowers.

Unlike the hilarious guys on the Expert Panel on The Red Green Show, Clyde will say I don’t know.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Another lithograph, and Ding Dong the Queen is Gone…


 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

Please click on my latest Youtube!  

I have a number of lithographs that are not online so I am trying to catch up on my uploads.  All of my lithographs were done when I was getting my MFA.  I enjoyed lithography very much but the set up for that type of printing is more than I want to get into it. 

I live to paint and a lithography press costs as much as a car and I would really need another studio for all the different stages of the work. 

I am glad I still have a number of them and have hand colored some as well.  Here is the black and white version of Kitchen.

 Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Something very strange has happened this summer.  We started out with the biggest army of ants I have ever seen.  They would come in every day and sit around in a perfect circle around the poison drops I set out and just keep coming.  Some days there were just a few so I would put the drops out and another army would come in. 

There were so many that after a few days there were three perfect circles around the drops. I guess the ones in the back would just push the ones that were  closer away so they could get some.  It just didn’t seem that the drops were working so I quit putting them out. 

Well, the other day there weren’t any.  Yesterday, no ants.  Today, no ants.  I guess it just took a very long time to get to the queen so DING DONG THE QUEEN IS GONE!   Yea!

Blue Ridge Artist is Stepping Away from the Painting…


 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I have completed the third stage of my current painting and now it is for sale as well as all sorts of prints!  It is always hard to decide when a painting is done.  I always lose something and gain something with each layer so I am so glad I decided to preserve the layers. 

I may not have each layer but I can look at them online and maybe make a few more decisions on the work.  But, for now it is time to step away and let it live.  It is so easy to ruin a painting by expecting too much. 

Pierre Bonnard would work on three at a time and then turn them to the wall so he wouldn’t get too caught up in them. 

Anyway, here is the final painting!  Check it out!

 Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

We both like chocolate but I am especially addicted to it.  I don’t think a day goes by without some sort of chocolate.  I don’t just have a tooth that craves sugar.  My whole body craves it.  I think the only way I would give it up is if I were put in a straight jacket .

Anyway, yesterday I read on the internet that twenty bars of chocolate at one time is a lethal dose!  I told Clyde this and he, of course said, “What a way to go.  You may have a sugar overdose but you wouldn’t care.”   I don’t know about that.  One bar is plenty for me!
