I try so hard to work on computer stuff that will help me out of all the extra work that I would rather not do, but, as usual the computer is fighting me.  I followed the directions to the letter to add a list on Twitter so I can add people to the list and cut down on all this retweeting.  The list is not there after three attempts.   My computer is up to date.  I just added the latest update and still the computer hates me.  Aarghhhh!!!!!!

 Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I work hard at our art.  I paint every day and he writes every day.  I intend to keep on as long as possible.  I hope I will die with a paint brush in my hand.

The other day I saw a wonderful quote.  A famous opera singer in his nineties was asked why he was still singing.  He said because he was making progress!  Yes!!!!!

Lot of Babies in the Pool…


Swimming laps is not my favorite exercise but I do like to watch the kids at the pool.  Lots of cute babies today!  I had one of those.  Now he is taller than me.  I miss the young years.

Here are two more portraits of my son Alan.  These paintings are very special!

 

Allookmebig (1)Alan Looking at Me    Original  24″ x 18″  Oil Painting     $7000.00

Prints on Paper or Canvas and Greeting Cards Available at    KENDALL KESSLER ART

Looking at Me is a painting of my son when he was nine months old.  I did a number of paintings from photographs of Alan when he was young and I was amazed at how he seemed to pose for me when he was a baby.

In one photograph, as soon as he saw the camera he grabbed his foot and held it up and grinned.

We are always amazed at how fast our children grow up and I miss a lot of his younger years. I still have many vivid memories of all that he did and said. I wrote down many things he said so I wouldn’t forget those times. I am especially pleased with the sumptuous light effect in this painting.

Alan on The Couch    Original  25″ x 40″  Oil Painting     $10,000.00

Prints on Paper or Canvas and Greeting Cards Available at    KENDALL KESSLER ART

Alan on the Couch is a painting I did years ago and was not happy with the result. I recently got it back out and worked on it and now I am satisfied with it. My son, Alan, is biting his lip and holding his ball for a rare still moment. I spent a lot of time chasing after him as he tried to jump over the sides of the couch.

I am especially pleased with the light effect and the bold brushwork in this painting.

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

Years ago I started taking Line Dancing lessons in an attempt to give up skating. I was becoming more and more afraid of the people that don’t know how to skate at rinks. Well, it didn’t work so now I do both and my husband took lessons for a while.  He has to get up in the middle of the night for work so he quit the lessons.

He isn’t much for going out at night so once in a while I go Line Dancing with friends from the class.  It is great fun and hopefully we will be there tonight!  Looking forward to it!

 

I hope you enjoyed portraits by an artist of The Blue Ridge Parkway!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, People Paintings, and Hawk Migration!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

I am pleased to blog about my people paintings.  They are very important to me.  My two favorite models are my son and my husband. 

I have done a number of paintings of both of them over the years and plan to do a new one of my husband when I can find some time and he is not out studying nature on a mountain top!

Clydeal (1)Clyde and Alan  Original Oil Painting has been Sold

This painting is of Alan when he was a few months old.  Clyde did not like to sit in a rocking chair so when he put him to sleep he would lie down and rock him. 

I noticed that almost every time he held him in his arms, Alan would go to sleep.  I guess he associated Daddy’s arms with bed time.

Alan by Our Window  Original Oil Painting has been Sold

Prints on Paper or Canvas and Greeting Cards Available at   KENDALL KESSLER ART

This painting is of Alan when he was a toddler.  He liked to stare out the window.  I am especially pleased with the energetic brush work in this painting.  Frank Webb commented at a competition that I was able to weave paint together in a very impressive way.  

I won one of the cash awards at the show.

 

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Fall is Hawk migration time and hundreds are flying over! Two of Clyde’s friends, Tom Moser and Todd Frederickson led a hawk watch at Rocky Knob with a class and there were 500 hawks, mostly Broad-winged hawks.
