Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, New Pawleys Island Paintings, and The Hokie Bug Fest!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

 

I am going to take a one day break from my People Art Blogs to present two recent Pawleys Island paintings. 

I have already posted His Spot but I thought it would good with my latest painting, Silver Lining at Pawleys Island.

Prints on Paper or Canvas Available at    KENDALL KESSLER ART

Silver Lining at Pawleys Island is an intense shore painting at this beautiful South Carolina beach.

The light streaming down from behind the clouds created a startling effect and the birds are great visual accents to the scene.

His Spot is a beautiful Pawleys Island evening painting. My husband is not much for swimming in the ocean. He is a self-taught naturalist and concentrates on bird populations. He spent many hours at this spot on the marsh side around the corner from the house we stayed at. He saw over 100 different species on our five day vacation.

Beautiful Girl Drawings by a Blue Ridge Parkway Artist and Special Promotions!


Beautiful Girl Drawings by Kendall Kessler

I have a few more Beautiful Girls to show you and then I will more on to another aspect of my work.  These are clothed.  Sometimes artists like to dress up their models.  

If I were wealthy I would get back to working from a live model but modeling is a hard job and their fee is high as it should be.  My husband won’t do it for me and I don’t blame him and I am not going to model for myself with mirrors.  Too awkward and too embarrassing! 

Anyway, I am proud of the ones I have done and especially proud of my best-seller on The Mindy Project!  I am so pleased that the show has been renewed for a third season!  Yea!!!!!!

 

This is another example of my work where I prefer the sketch to the pastel painting.  The immediacy in the sketch and the strong contrast is more to my liking.  I have always liked a wide range of values in my work.  Renoir once said that black was the queen of colors!

I got a lot of work done on the computer and a current painting AND got to the lake!  Love to swim and that was the last time for this season.  Love the Fall but I always miss the summer months.

I Guess I did a little too much!


Like my Dad ,I am a workaholic.  I am always working at something.  I just can’t take it easy and I think I over did it today.  My body is not happy.  Time to relax, at least for a while.

I was so pleased to meet one of my patrons at Pawleys Island.  I have work in 24 states, Canada, Germany, Australia and Russia so it was great to meet one of my long distance patrons!  The couple that bought this painting live in Maryland but they vacation at Pawleys Island.   Fortunately our beach times crossed.  They were coming in right as we were getting ready to leave.  We had a great chat!
