Kendall Kessler is Pleased with Progress on Latest Commission


Well, my latest commission is coming along but it has been a little challenging. I sent a first layer file that the patron was very happy with but then I veered off into a slightly different direction. He made it clear that he wanted me to paint a seascape that I would like to have on my wall. He didn’t want me to change the way I paint. That is always great to hear but kind of difficult to follow when painting for someone else. I can’t help but consider the one he purchased and sort of following that one. I am back on path now and pleased with the progress. Check out the first layer below and my latest Youtube.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Begin a New Floral


Well, I am glad to begin a new floral and still having a hard time with the new WordPress format. Maybe it is a problem with my computer, but if I try to copy paste a paragraph from my desk top document, it is turned into sentences here, and if I want to modify it, I have to modify each sentence. So I am just going to put up some short blogs right now and hope I can get better at this. I am pleased that I have developed a sense of humor regarding computer changes and glitches. I used to get so frustrated but now I just go with the flow until the changes sink in. It is always some little thing that is holding me up.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I have been puzzling over the news on TV regarding Space flights. The cost right now is $250,000.

Space, the final frontier

Space, the final bank account

I think Clyde is right. I would never go into space regardless of the cost. I don’t even like airplanes.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell Smith Mountain Lake


Well, I am getting better at the WordPress block, but I don’t like it. I have received advice

from a number of people but I really don’t want to take the time to figure that out either.

The advice is different so I think I will just keep plugging along. I am putting this on a

document and then copy paste it on to WordPress. I do want to keep adding Youtubes but

the ones in my last blog were shoved to the right and I don’t think they have to be that way.

Oh well, I am just not that great with computers and I am so busy I don’t want to keep learning

new ways to do things.

Anyway, I am so pleased that my best selling lake painting, Smith

Mountain Lake has a permanent home! This is one of my favorite paintings. It has an inner

glow and a sensuous surface. I love boats and spent a lot of time around and in them when

I was young. Beautiful memories!

Okay. Running into more problems so I think I will quit for today.

Blue Ridge Parkway is Pleased with Latest Sunset Painting and When Pigs Fly…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Sometimes a painting really comes together and it doesn’t even have to age! That is what happened this time and I am extremely pleased with my latest Blue Ridge sunset painting.  It came together after a number of detours and frustration. 

I didn’t quit because it was a good as it was going to get.  I quit because it was exactly what I wanted and that is always a red letter day!  I am pleased to present it here and I have started on another sunset painting. I am really into those gorgeous evening colors right now. 

I may do a still life soon but it is such a lot of work getting the composition and the lighting right.  Although painting is a lot of work, it is what I love to do but I am a little lazy about difficult set ups.  Oh well.  I will get to one soon.  Be sure to check out this week’s Demo Youtube above of St. Louis Missouri. Have a great day everybody!  I know I am!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I have been a little uptight the last week or so.  He has said a few very funny things but I don’t think I should print them.  Anyway, we both loved something we saw on Facebook.  Someone asked God for a sign if the person was eating too much.  The picture of a cloud that looked just like a pig was floating by! Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell another Print of Most Popular Lake Painting…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Such a beautiful day!  I hope to get my work done and get outside.  I am indoors so much of the time. 

I am preparing for another painting and it will be a small one so I won’t be so intimidated by the cost of the paint.  Sometimes I practically use a whole tube of $22 white oil paint on one large painting.  That is just one of the tubes.  I use a lot of cadmium red light, too.  It costs $60 a tube. 

Of course, all this is taken into account when a price is established. The main cost of one of my paintings is determined by my time and expertise after working and developing my art since I was twelve. Decades of practice and still learning all the time.  Any artists that are reading this know exactly what I am talking about. 

Anyway, I am pleased to sell another print of my best selling lake painting to a great Maryland patron!  Be sure to click on the link under the painting to see all the print possibilities listed on the right.  Time to get some sunshine!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Almost There…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Still trying to get to finish line on my latest painting of a Blue Ridge sunset but I am at the most difficult stage, at least for me.  I don’t want to lose what I have achieved but I do want to modify a few areas.  It is so hard not to add  more paint everywhere which would just create more areas that need tweaking.

Today the light was okay but my glasses were rather dirty so the colors came out stronger than I wanted them to.  I think I will work in areas for one more day and then let it live. 

It is always important to get away from a painting and then check it out later.  Usually, it looks great after it ages so that is what this one is going to do unless someone purchases it.  The floral garden I did before this one doesn’t seem to have any problems at all now!  Love how that works! 

Anyway, I am pleased to sell another print of my best selling shore painting, Marsh View at Pawleys Island to a great New York patron! 

Be sure to vote and I read that it is too late to mail ballots in so be sure to drop them off. 

Cheers!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Did not Throw Paint Brushes around the Room…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Yesterday, as I was getting aggravated over my current painting that seemed to be working really well the day before yesterday, I thought about how paintings can be so ornery.  Of course, before throwing brushes around the room I remembered what I always say about how if it were easy, I wouldn’t do it.  It would be boring.

Anyway, the painting must have heard me because  it got right back on track after I was thinking about it.  It was a value problem and now I am confident I will get to the end and be mostly happy about it.  The next one will always be better.  That carrot will always be a little out of reach but most of them age so well.  Just have to leave it alone for a while and start another.

I am pleased to sell prints of  Blue Ridge Meadow  to a great Virginia patron!  This time the prints are on pillows.  It is great to think of my paintings on a sofa for everyone to see. 

 

Be sure to check out my latest video demo of a Los Angeles skyline!  This one is getting a lot of attention and don’t forget the Safe Grocery Shopping video if you haven’t seen it.  Covid cases are rising in our area.  I hope a vaccine is available soon.

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!
