Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am so pleased to sell another print of Cloud Swirl over the Peaks of Otter to a great Connecticut patron!  The Peaks of Otter is such a beautiful place. 

My family and I have been to the resort several times and hiked down from Sharp Top.  The deer are so used to people that they wander around the grounds with no fear of people. 

Great place!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Oftentimes Clyde and I talk about the changes in our bodies with age. I am working hard to try to counter some of the physical problems with yoga and he walks for miles every day.

All the exercise in the world will not stop the ravages of time and I have noticed quite a difference in my hands in the winter.  In the summer they look pretty good but when the weather is dry the wrinkles are so pronounced.

I showed them to Clyde last night and he said,”That is nothing.  My hands are so wrinkled that they are looking for new places to put wrinkles.”

He groaned when I said I was going to put that in my blog.  Well, I thought it was funny!

My Yoga teacher provided us with a substitute today.  Wow, that was a work out.  Anyone that thinks Yoga is just some graceful stretching has never spent much time doing it. 

She put us through some stretches I have never done before.  They were great and I am seeing quite a bit of progress.  Exercise is great but stretching is essential to keeping those muscles and joints in shape. 

Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Beautiful weather today!  It is great to get a break from the cold.  I am still sorting through The Bermuda Triangle and finding some things I need to add to my computer records so the time is well spent.  I hope to get to my current painting later  and work on some records.  Busy, busy, busy!

If anyone knows why my typing is showing up a while after I type it, please let me know what I need to do with my Mac.  This is extremely irritating.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde made an election comment that I cannot print but he does have a suggestion for record keeping in this country that might be helpful.  Not funny, just helpful.

After hearing about the latest computer crisis concerning IRS hacking that involves a large number of people, Clyde commented that perhaps we should not have extremely important records on line. If we reverted to paper records then the information could not be hacked and there would be more jobs.

Something to consider in our computer dominated world.

I did see a cute comment on Facebook.   If we are going to have an extra day in March, why does it have to be a Monday? -Maxine

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Looking forward to a Better Week…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

When it rains, it pours.  This past week was full of aggravation.  Computer aggravation, family aggravation, painting aggravation, and physical pain.  To top off all the problems I developed a horrible blood sore in my mouth that burst but it is still very sore after many days.  

Oh well, time to stop complaining although I am very tempted to throw this computer out the window.  The typing is sporadic and getting on my nerves big time.

This week has got to better!  Check out the first stage of my latest Kendall Expressions painting!

Blue Parkway Artist is Writing Things Down and I’ll Let you Know…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I wrote down three things I needed to do yesterday and didn’t do a single one of them.  I remember years ago hearing my Dad say he had so many things on his mind.  I now understand what he was talking about. 

So much to do and so little time.  Maybe I can get those three things done today in addition to the stuff I tackle every day.  I don’t want the list to keep growing. 

Cheers!

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!

I know the days go by faster the longer you live but I couldn’t even catch a glimpse of this one in my rear view mirror!   I was going to go swimming but before I knew it I was fixing dinner. The lake quest continues tomorrow!  I have a friend who lives there.  I think I will see if she will be swimming tomorrow.

Radford University Ghost Story near The Blue Ridge Parkway and One of Those Faces…

Boat House Mountain Lake in Giles County   Original Painting has been Sold

Prints on Paper or Canvas available at   KENDALL KESSLER ART

This painting is of a beautiful section of Mountain Lake Resort in Giles County, VA.  This popular resort was the setting for the great movie, Dirty Dancing, starring Patrick Swayze!

 

Radford University Ghost Story

 

Beneath the grounds of Radford University there is a network of tunnels that used to be used by students so they wouldn’t have to go out in bad weather.  The school was originally a girl’s college.

There is a ghost story about one student that prowls the tunnels on Hall o’ ween.

The tunnels were closed long ago and entrance to them is forbidden.

The girl’s name was Elizabeth and she shunned the other students. They played tricks on her and sent her a note claiming a suitor wanted to see her at the Hall o’ ween ball dressed as a princess and he would be her prince.  She went to the ball and waited. He never appeared but a student handed her a note that requested she meet him in the tunnels.  It was dark and she tripped and broke her neck and died instantly.

The legend is that she prowls the tunnels calling for her prince every Hall o’ ween!

 

This story was written by Richie Ellis and printed in The Haunted Commonwealth online publication in 2010.  The story is more complicated if you would like to check it out!

A Memory    Original  26″x36″  Oil Painting    $1892.00

Prints on Paper or Canvas Available at   KENDALL KESSLER ART

Since I am writing about New River Valley ghost stories lately, I thought this haunting painting would be great for this post!  This painting is loosely based on a photograph I saw of a scene that reminded me of my grandmother’s beautiful grounds in her home in Clarksville, Virginia.  When I look at this painting I am reminded of our special visits to her home.

 

One of Those Faces

All of my life people have told me I look just like a relative or friend.  It has never bothered me that I just have one of those faces but now I like to make a joke out of it.

The other night at a Chick Corea concert at Radford University it happened again.  A lady in the seat behind me asked me to forgive her for staring but I look so much like her sister.  We discussed backgrounds and hers was mostly Irish while I am half Italian but I do look more like my mother’s Scottish and Irish side.

When the concert was over I looked over to the lady and said, “You must have a beautiful sister!”   She said she did and we both laughed –  but not too hard, of course!

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

My husband is at it again publishing poems!  This week he had five poems published in Still: The Journal.  This is the second time he has had work published there and this online magazine won the 2014 E-Appalachia Award!

 

Also, another bird count is coming up in Franklin County on April 26th.  There are teams that have mapped out locations to survey.  People are welcome to join the effort.  If you are interested contact my bird man at ckessler@vt.edu!
