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!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist’s New Heart Painting and Fun and Games


Please click on my Youtube!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I have not had any trouble with my back for years until two days ago.  I work so hard to stay in shape with exercise, stretching exercises and yoga that I get so mad when it acts up. 

When I do too much a muscle just starts to spasm without any reason.  I have had it happen when I rolled over in bed.  This time a muscle acted up as I turned to get paint off of my palette. 

It ain’t easy being a workaholic. 

It is getting better and I bet I will be back to my easel tomorrow!  Cheers and enjoy your pain free back if you have one!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Lately Clyde has come up with some great jokes about political candidates for president.  I wish I could print them but we would like to keep our “Never Been Sued” status.  I remember a judge’s words that people can say just about anything about famous people but I don’t want to find out the hard way that there are some things that can’t be said.

Say it, forget it, write it, regret it.  I live by that motto.

Anyway, there are a lot of cute weight jokes on Facebook right now.  Here is my favorite latest one.

It’s all fun and games until your jeans won’t fit anymore.

I just don’t have the time to put much of a blog up today.  Running around in circles and saying hi to myself as I pass by.  Hope to do better tomorrow!  Got to get everything done so I can get to Yoga tonight.  Got to stretch out these muscles before they tighten up into knots that hurt!

Cheers!

Please click on my  Youtube!  One more time.  I am determined to get to a new one up tomorrow.

I don’t know where the day goes but this one shot by like a rocket!  I worked this morning on the computer, painted, walked and got back on the computer.  I am not taking it with me in the form of a I-pad which I do own but hardly ever use.  Talk about a monkey on our backs!  Too much computer stuff!  Time to find a DVD!

Cheers!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Almost Got out of There without Bumping Elbows…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my  Youtube!

 

I always check the website before I go swimming.  Radford does not have an indoor pool so I have to go to Christiansburg which is only about a fifteen minute drive.  Still, I check the website to make sure it isn’t closed to the public due to a meet.  There was no mention of a meet where the pool hours is listed.  I didn’t realize until I got home that there is a separate tab for meets.

When I got there there were so many cars I was sure there was a meet.  There was a sign at the door about today’s meet.  I was so pleased when I got inside to find out that the leisure pool was open and there were only a few swimmers so I got my laps in.

I showered and if I had just finished a few minutes earlier I wouldn’t have been surrounded by a zillion teen age girls that had just finished the competition.  It was elbow to elbow and very hard to dress without bumping into one of them.  Well, glad to see them since I have been told by a life guard that the meets supply a lot of funding for the center.

Cheers!

I Remember!


Last week at Line Dance Class we worked on an old dance that I especially like but the teacher used a different song.   I liked the other one so much better but I couldn’t remember what it was.  I still don’t know the name but the tune has been playing in my head for days! 

I can’t wait to tell the teacher tonight!    Line Dancing is the greatest way to exercise! 

Come on out to Memorial Baptist in Pulaski, VA at 5:30 tonight for a wonderful time!

I am working on a painting of the beautiful Cascades Falls in Giles County.  This gorgeous setting is part of the Jefferson National Forest and I have hiked up to the falls and swam in the pool of water many times.  The painting will be done soon and I think I will ask my husband to hike up there with me again soon! eveningriverscenecopyrightEvening River Scene  Original 30″x40″ Oil Painting   $2425

Robin Williams Movies. I think I saw them all!


 

Robin Williams was one of my favorite performers.  My father was hilarious and I married a guy that cracks me up every day!  I love to laugh and I am so sorry Robin is gone.
