More People Paintings

Sometimes I like to paint people that I don’t know in an intensely expressive manner.  The vendor here is bathed in coloristic light and strong cool shadows.

Vendor is an expressive, colorful look at a street vendor in a parking lot. The color contrast makes this painting an especially eye-catching work. My work is unique to me but it harkens back to both Impressionism and Expressionism. This painting is one of my more Expressionistic works like the work of Edvard Munch, one of my favorite painters.

Intensity is my most expressive portrait. The color contrast and strong brushwork make this an exciting visual experience. I love to push warm/cool color relations and get them to sing. This painting is a great example of that concept. The man is lost in thought but not oblivious of his surroundings. The shadows add to the expression and emphasize the value patterns that connect the space.

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

A few days ago a bear was spotted in downtown Radford!  This certainly doesn’t happen very often but the incident inspired my husband to come up with his own report!  Leave it to my husband to turn a scary event into something funny!

 

Early this evening a bear was sighted running a red light in downtown Radford. 

It is supposed that it was late for a fraternity pledge or a movie.  No police officer  bothered to stop it for a ticket.

 

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

Sometimes they are a Great Experience!


All paintings are hard.   Most artists say it is fun at first and then it gets more and more difficult and then you just want to finish it. 

You are never completely happy with the work but it usually looks great after some time has passed and you forget what was bothering you about it or you know exactly what to do to complete it.

Well, sometimes it starts out great and just keeps going to the end!  I have one of those right now and can hardly wait to put it online!  I hope I can finish it today. 

Cheers!

What a Dump!


When I go into my studio I am always reminded of a famous Bette Davis line.  “What a dump!”  I have two choices when I go in there.  I can work on a painting or I can clean up.  Guest which choice wins most of the time?

Ouch!


I have worked on getting my potassium levels up and have had leg cramps two nights in a row.  I think I am sitting too much in this chair. 

Being in the same position for too long can also cause that problem! 

Time to get away from the computer!

No, I have not lost Weight…


People have been asking me my whole adult life if I have lost weight.  I am the same weight I was when I got married.  I am not over weight and think I am just right.  The only thing I can figure is I am either losing fat and gaining muscle with all my activities or certain clothes just make me look smaller.  

It isn’t a bad comment but most people say it with so much enthusiasm that it is hard not to take it as a criticism since they seem to think I should glad.

Oh well.   I have always been too sensitive.  It is a problem but I think all that sensitivity contributes to the success of my artwork.  Cheers!
