Blue Ridge Parkway has a New Gallery on Website and An excellent way to lose Weight…


Please click on my Youtube! I am hoping to post my demonstration video if I can figure out the software.  If not, I will make another one on my artwork soon!

I am pleased with my first painting in my new series, Skyline Beauty.  I have painted many Blue Ridge Mountain Skylines and will continue to paint them but this series gives me a chance to do some creative things with buildings.  I have always been fascinated by architecture.  It is the slowest artform to change so it is a great art that connects us with our past while we enjoy it every day.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

The Word Man is real busy being the Bird Man right now so I haven’t gotten any quips from him lately but we both enjoyed a solution for dieting on Facebook.

The picture is of a plate of food with a fork and knife next to it.  The fork and knife are both made with branches with thorns on them.

Yep!  That would do it!

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!

I have two sisters and they have let me make portraits of them which is something artists often do.  Models are expensive and it is a great experience to paint family members.  This first one is of Nan when she was ten with the only dog she had growing up.  My mother decided I needed a dog and we got this adorable poodle that we all loved.  We liked to let the hair grow out rather then trim it. 

Beau was a very sweet dog and Nan was devoted to him.

Nan was quite athletic and became a Ice Skating instructor.  I love to tell people that since it certainly isn’t a run of the mill occupation.  She excels at skating and teaching the sport.

I am glad I was able to paint her as a child and adult.  She is an interesting subject and I am especially pleased with the expressive look in her eyes in this portrait.

 

My new painting is coming along but I think it is going into the arm wrestling stage.  I guess if they didn’t start out well I would never pick up a brush. 

I love to paint but it is always a battle!

East Hall Ghost

East Hall Dormitory is on Appalachian  State University.  The story began in the 1960’s.  A student took her life on the lowest floor of the five story section. The cause is not remembered.  She hung her self with a long silk scarf in the basement restroom.

Ever since then students have reported strange happenings. Whispering in the hallways, strange balls of light hovering near the ceiling in the dorm rooms, and one man claimed a ghost toppled him over after he heard the words, “My Dorm.”

The strongest presence of a ghost is felt in the basement where the girl died.  Students have reported seeing a blue mist about the size of a human being moving through walls and always ending the walk at the bathroom.

Whatever is going on, there seems to be an affect on the students that live there.  There have been a lot of psychotic episodes and the school’s mental health services  keep a close eye on the students in this dorm and they are always on the look out for early signs that a student that has gone East!

I got this story from North Carolina Ghosts and Legends on the online publication Stories from the Mountains

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Once again The Word Man has published his work!  I am very impressed with how frequently he is publishing his poetry these days!   He is not sure how many times he has been published but he knows it is more than 200 times in small press publications!

This time three of his poems will be in The Kentucky Review!  They will appear in the online publication  soon and the printed publication in January 2015.  Way to go Word Man!
