Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I both got a kick out of a great post on Facebook!  A lot of people put up posts about the past and ask if anybody remembers.  They are fun but someone decided to put up a joke about those posts.  The picture is of a cave man using a rock for a tool.

 

The caption is “Share if you are old enough to remember making tools from rocks.”  Love it!

Such a great Birthday!  I don’t even know how many people on Facebook wished me a great one!  Some of them sent more than one Birthday wish!  I answered them all!  Great to be remembered!

Still working on Heart interpretations.  This one is my favorite so far!  Heart Mist has a beautiful atmospheric effect that enhances the many feelings associated with this symbol.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde, as usual, has been coming up with some great quips but all of them would get me in trouble if I printed them.  As always, after he makes me laugh with a quip he says, “Don’t print that.”

Again, last night I said, “You think I don’t have any discretion.”

He said, “I know you don’t have any discretion.  You married me.”

I can print that one.  LOL!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I often discuss what appears to be climate changes.  There are a lot of indications that our climate is changing and adversely affecting our environment.  Of course the melting of the polar ice caps is one of the strongest indication of change.

I am surprised that so many people do not believe there is a problem.  A lot of people point to heavy snowfall in their area which they say proves there is no warming trend.  They don’t realize that the entire world has to be taken into consideration, not just one area.  Winter 2015 was the warmest one on record. If they actually studied the issue they may change their minds.

Clyde’s response is there seems to be something going on with our environment that is not good.  What is not going on is education.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Starting New Oils, and Texting and Driving…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 Please click on my latest Youtube. 

I have two large canvases ready to go!  Since I have been working in Acrylics I will first paint a small oil so I can get used to the difference in paint.  There is a big difference in how I handle the two and the drying times is completely different. I don’t want to be scraping off expensive oil paint because I am out of practice. 

Art is just like Music and I can say that because I am reasonably proficient on the piano.  I found out that for my Kendall Expressions paintings and my Suggestion paintings I have more success getting what I want with Acrylics but my favorite medium will always be oil paint.  Great stuff!

Here is another painting from my Suggestion Series to end things with Acrylics for a while!

 Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde often complains about other drivers tail gating him and texting and driving.  In South West Virginia deers are an ever present danger so we try to keep the speed down to the speed limit which I think very few people do.  I think most people think the speed limit is really at least ten miles more than what is posted.

 

Anyway I made him laugh the other night when I told him I was almost hit by someone that was texting while driving.  I don’t think I was in any real danger.  I was in the grocery store when some guy almost creamed me with his cart while he was fooling with his phone.  Maybe they should post no texting or driving while shopping!  LOL!

Link to this painting   http://kendall-kessler.artistwebsites.com/featured/heart-twirl-kendall-kessler.htm

Heart Twirl 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 a heart like shape began to appear so I made it into a stylized heart with a curving edge. Then I accented the shape with curving, calligraphic line. I am especially pleased with the linear accents in this one.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Over the years that have gone by so quickly Clyde and I have oftened quoted my Dad who asked towards the end of his life, “Where did the time go?”

I will never forget an intro by Woody Allen for his movie, Annie Hall.  He moans about all the problems in life, how difficult every thing is and how so many things go wrong and he ends with the biggest problem which is that it is over with much too quickly.

I live to paint but I can’t eat them and I can’t take them with me so I spend a lot of time on the computer promoting my work.

Today my brother called and we talked for a pretty long time but it was just one phone call and now I am scrambling to catch up on computer chores.

I guess all the time we are on the computer is a line that can be added to Woody Allen’s gripe- but don’t forget the last line. Life really is short so gripe away and enjoy the day!
