Well, it will Snow and then Get Warm…


Please click on my Youtube!

 

It was in the seventies two days ago and now it is  32.   It always snows in Spring in Southwest Virginia and I’m sure this year will not be an exception.  A lot of flowers get wiped out.  Looking forward to the seventies again!

Right now it is 27 degrees!  Yesterday it was 1 degree in the morning so this is a heat wave.  The snow has covered up what the plow did a few hours ago and it is still falling.   The next time I can get out I am definitely buying some boots!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, More Still lifes, and Blue Ridge Discovery Center News!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my Youtube!

 

I am real pleased with my current still life and hope to finish it soon.  My newest Blue Ridge Parkway painting is also well under way.  Here are two favorite still lifes!  Mary Beth’s Gift won second place in an International Show in Nogales Arizona!

Mary Beth’s Gift is one of my favorite still lifes. I am especially pleased with the use of line and intense color contrast in this work. I have always believed that it is not what you do in art but how you do it. This plant was given to me by an office mate and I liked it so much that I decided to make it into a work of art. I found the perfect doily that adds to the strong linear accents and contrasts nicely with the complementary colors.

This pastel painting won second place in the Pastel Division at an International Juried Competition in Nogales, Arizona.

Old Plant is a vibrant painting of one of our planters by an open window. I am especially pleased with the strong patterns and value contrast in this work. I haven’t met the medium I don’t like and oil pastels are high on the list of favorites. My main medium is oil paint but I am also love pastels and have won awards in both from prominent artists.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

It has been a while since I posted about the Blue Ridge Discovery Center that Clyde works with so here is some interesting news.   The hikes will start up again in the warm weather!

BioSurvey: Matthews State Forest

In support of and compliance with the Virginia State Forest’s objective to demonstrate and educate, Blue Ridge Discovery Center is proposing a multi-year biological survey of Matthews State Forest. Through this project, BRDC will also bring attention to wildlife habitat and water quality while providing relevant data for future land use planning.

To reinforce the educational component, BRDC will enlist science and art teachers based in the Galax, Grayson and Carroll counties region. Through these teachers, we will create groups of students to conduct the field studies under the direction of BRDC staff and volunteers from local universities and colleges.

Dancing Mushrooms  Original  Acrylic Painting   NFS

Link to this painting    http://kendall-kessler.artistwebsites.com/featured/dancing-mushrooms-kendall-kessler.html

 

Dancing Mushrooms is another sensuous, colorful painting from my series,
Suggestions. I am starting with an abstract expressionist surface and then looking for forms that appear in the paint. This time a shape that seemed like a mushroom appeared so I made it stronger and added another one with expressive brushwork around them. I am very
pleased with the energy in this one.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

I’m sure everyone knows about all the online scammers that get a photo of someone else and post as that person.  We women get bombarded with scammers that tell us we are beautiful so they can scam money out of us in one way or another.  I get those all the time but I am not always sure the person is a scammer so I communicate a little with them before getting rid of them.

 

My latest two scammers that use the flattery method have been on Twitter.  One of them I knew right away  was a scammer and I did not respond.  The other one I was not so sure about so I said thank you.  He then asked if I was married and I replied that I was.

His next comment cracked me up.  He said my husband is so ucky.  Well, I don’t think he is ucky at all.  Of course it was a typo which he corrected with the next comment.  My husband is lucky according to him.  After a few more comments I was convinced he was a scammer and unfollowed him. 

 

The sad thing is that I do get these all the time so I guess some poor women are falling for their tricks or I wouldn’t keep getting them.  Lots of creeps on the internet!  Watch out ladies!

I liked it better when they just shoved you in a tube…


Please click on my Youtube!

 

I had to crawl through snow covered roads to get to the hospital this morning.   MRI procedure is much more complicated than when I had my first one.

I was shoved in a long tube that was closed at one end.  Then I just had to lie there for a long time listening to a jack hammer all around my head.  I didn’t have to fast the night before or have an IV that is extremely hard to insert in my hidden veins when I haven’t had anything to drink for 12 hours.

 

I’m sure today’s model is better but I liked the old way better.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Lots of new Word Press friends so if you haven’t seen my portrait video, please do!

I am anxious to get to work on a still life.  The flowers aren’t going to last forever and I don’t want to go anywhere.  I just hope the guys are quiet to I can get some work done.  Glad I have an exhaust fan.  It covers up a multitude of noises.

 

Here is one of my few water media paintings.  I don’t have this one up anywhere but I will have it on Etsy this evening.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Radford is awaiting a huge snow storm and Clyde has a lot of bird seed out.   He has been griping about the squirrels.  They get a lot of the seed.  According to the Bird Man, squirrels get lazy in the winter and go on Bird Seed Welfare.

I asked him what the squirrels are supposed to do.  Don’t they just hide away with their nuts?  He said if that were true, they would be in here with us.

Droll, very droll.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Two More Portfolio Selections, and I am Revolting…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!  I will have a new one later today.

I think I have finally caught some sort of bug.  My throat is real scratchy.  Oh well, I have to be very ill to slow down so if it is real bad I will take it easy which would be a good thing!

Anyway, here are two more portfolio selections. The first one is another one of my still lifes  that I am very pleased with and the other one is another whimsical painting from my Suggestion Series!

 

applesflowerssmall (1)

Apples and Flowers   Original  9″ x 12″ Oil Painting     $225

Prints on Paper, Canvas, Metal, Greeting Cards, Pillows, !phone and galaxy phone Cases Available at   KENDALL KESSLER ART

 

“Apples and Flowers” is an intense, intimate still life of golden delicious apples on a floral cloth with the same colors as the fruit and the bowl. The colors are strong and the painting has a cheerful impact on the viewer. The color and textures are continually modulated throughout the work. The painting is in a black composite frame.

Stepping Out is another sensuous, colorful painting from my series,
Suggestions. I am starting with an abstract expressionist surface and then looking for forms that appear in the paint. This time a shoe like shape began to appear so I made it into a festive shoe scene with abstract party streamers.I love the party mood in this one.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday I was dragging.   Too much to do as always.  I decided to be lazy anyway.  I didn’t clean up until before I fixed dinner and then I just left the dishes and went on to do other things, including watching an old Peter Sellers movie.  I never watch a movie in one sitting so I will finish that today.

Clyde is feeling better and when he saw the dirty dishes he started to wash them.  I came into the kitchen and told him I was revolting.  I was expecting the not anymore than usual reply but I guess he was too tired for a retort.

Anyway sometimes you just have to come to a halt and relax.  The work is always there waiting for you.
