Another one of my son’s first friends was Paul.  They are still friends and see each other at the Bowling League games.  Paul used to live on our street but moved away a few years  ago.

When Alan was very young I made this painting of a small boy walking through the woods.  It was loosely based on a photograph of someone else.  I changed the way the boy looked so that it was not a portrait.  Alan insisted it looked like Paul and he wanted to visit my studio every day to look at the painting of Paul.  I decided to name it “Like Paul”.  There is a strong resemblance.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

 

I enjoyed my short trip to The Meadows of Dan with my husband on Monday.  I have never painted Mabry Mill and I wanted to get a number of photos to work from.  Such a beautiful place!  I highly recommend this beautiful Blue Ridge Parkway site!  Such a peaceful, lovely place and there is a great restuarant there as well!

 

Thank you for looking at paintings by an Artist of The Blue Ridge Parkway

 

 

So Glad to get Started on a new Pawleys Island Painting!

The start of a new painting is always great!  I have an idea what I want but I never know which way a painting will take me.  It is never my intention to reproduce a photograph.  I have to express myself in  color and textures that communicate my personality. 

Some of them start out so well and just keep on going with few problems!  I think this one is going to be one of those!  Yea!!!

I am Really Figuring out that Monkey!


Please check out my latest Youtube and send it to Stumbleupon!

As I have mentioned ad nauseam, I am not that great with computers and new sites usually baffle me for a while. 

I was having a very hard time with Mail Chimp but I think I have figured out how to work with that monkey! 

It is a great site, I just get confused with some of the directions.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, One More Skater Painting, and He wants to add this …

This pastel painting, “Skating”, is the last of my skating paintings.  This one is a celebration of my sister Anne.   In elementary school she joined the girl scouts and earned a badge for ice skating.  The instructors at the rink were so impressed with her natural ability that they encouraged her to take lessons. 

She became quite an accomplished skater and completed three of the preliminary tests to be an Olympic contender.  She decided she didn’t want to compete but has been an Ice Skating Instructor in Sterling, Virginia for many years.  This painting is a celebration of her gift.  She is the figure in the top center and the other skaters are famous skaters.  I changed their faces so I wouldn’t run into any copyright issues.

I have always been impressed with her skill.  I also ice skated when I was a child but just for fun and exercise.  When I moved to Southwest Virginia I took up roller skating since the nearest ice rink is in Roanoke, VA.  As I mentioned in previous blogs, I was very disappointed when the local rink closed this past Spring.  I hope another one opens up in the future.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

The other day I mentioned my husband’s addition to all the warnings on drug commercials.  He said that if you are dead, stop taking this medication. 

Yesterday he added this.  If you are dead, stop taking this medication and call your lawyer.

I wish I knew how that Happened…


Aperture is such a mystery to me.  I still don’t know why my tutorials disappeared and now some photos I took in 2002 are gone.  I still have ones I took in 2001 so it can’t be an age thing.  Oh well, I am not making prints of all my photos.  Too many of them. 

 

Back to work!

I am Really Excited about This Week’s Video!


Please click on my Youtube and send it to Stumbleupon!

I feel like Sue Heck on The Middle!  I may not get umpteen hits but I am excited about the Youtube video I hope to have up this evening!  I am a serious, hard-working artist but I love to laugh and I got my husband in on this one! 

He has his script and he should be ready when he comes home from work. 

 

He is not happy with the script and is going to call his agent and find out how he got stuck with this gig.

I think it will be funny but humor is a strange thing.  We’ll see!
