So glad my eye doesn’t look like someone clobbered me anymore. It certainly took a long time clear up. Now I can get back to all of my activities.

One thing I will not do is lift something that causes too much strain. That is when I get this problem. Both times in my right eye. I was able to hang two small paintings today that are very light. Most of my paintings are a few pounds up to around ten but I have a few that are heavier.

Anyway, I am so pleased to be on another wildflower painting! I love to paint intricate florals that have leaves and stems running through out the scene.

So pleased to sell another print of Beach Houses at Pawleys Island! Glad my shore scenes are so popular. This one is a favorite that has a great home. Prints are always available.

Be sure to check out this week’s demo video below!

Love my new studio! I really do live to paint but it can be like this guy sometimes. I think this painting may be laughing at the artist. I think sometimes I have paintings that do that to me. LOL!

My eye is just about better and I am holding myself down and taking it easy for one more week. I am not going to go right back into all my activities and injure myself again.

I wish there were some sort of gauge we could wear that tells us we are working too hard or not hard enough. I’d buy that in a second.

I am very pleased to present my latest wildflower painting, A Circle of Coneflowers. So happy with the sensual surface of this work and the delicate but colorful light effect on the flowers.

I had some fun with my latest Youtube! I got into the Halloween spirit and did a wild, expressionistic Jack of Lantern. Check it out below!

My eye still looks awful and I made it worse. It was looking somewhat better on Thursday morning so I did my online Yoga class.

Friday morning all of the white was covered in blood so I went to the Opthamalogist and she said I should not do anything that increases my heart rate until my eye is better. She said I can walk very slowly but that is it.

I am also staying off the computer most of the time and just doing the bare minimum. Yuck!

I am just leaving the paintings up from last time and just changing the Youtube. Time to put my eye patch back on and take a slow walk.

Workaholics never learn. I did too much lifting yesterday and not only did I hurt my back but the strenuous effort caused vessels in my right eye to break so now the eye is half covered in blood. Looks awful.

This happened a long time ago when I did the same thing and was so relieved to hear from my ophthalmologist that the strain was what caused the vessels to break. It was a scary thing to see blood in my eye in the mirror since no one punched me.

Anyway, I am so pleased to sell another Blue Ridge Parkway painting to a great Virginia Beach patron. I spoke with her after it was delivered and she loves it! She is considering purchasing others.

As always wall art prints and prints on just about anything are available with the link. I am just going to leave the paintings up from the last blog to save on some eye strain but be sure to look at my latest video below. A little Halloween fun!

Glad to see another sale of Richmond on the James to a great Richmond, VA patron! I am very proud of all of my creative interpretations of various skylines and hope to get back to that series soon.

Right now I have been inspired by some beautiful wildflowers that are located near my new home. I think it is great that wildflower seeds can be purchased and people can decorate their surroundings with them.

Cultivated flowers are beautiful but I love the natural flow of space that occurs with the interaction of wild blooms.

Anyway, still arranging things and just mailed out another Blue Ridge oil painting that I will include in my next blog. Got to get back to my easel.

My latest Youtube demo painting is a Skyline Beauty of Pittsburgh and it is getting a lot of attention so I thought I would post some favorites here.I am having a little difficulty with my latest painting but I think it will get back on track tomorrow.

It isn’t giving me any trouble. I am just down about politics right now. I am not going to say which side I am on but there is a lot of disturbing news from people on the internet that I think know what they are talking about. I am not talking about people on social media sites that know everything and try to convince you they know everything. I look for posts by people that are in the political arena to try to discern what is going to happen next.

I keep telling myself that the sky is always falling according to a lot of people so I need to just stay calm and concentrate on my work. Be sure to check out my latest Demo Youtube and have a great day! Always good to keep smiling!

I am looking outside my window to a beautiful warm day! The first one in a long time so I am determined to walk away from this computer and get outside!  I had a difficult painting session this morning but the painting is coming along.  Lots of arm wrestling right now.  This part and the final part is the hardest but it is always worth it. 

I am very pleased with my latest Youtube painting!  These fast spontaneous expressions keep me on my toes and it is a lot of fun to demonstrate them and talk at the same time on my youtubes. Reminds me of when I taught at Radford University. I always talked all the way through demos.

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

So many crazy things happening in our country right now that I am worried about what may happen next.  What took place on the capital was horrible and inexcusable.  I was horrified and hope there is no more violent protesting.  I can’t understand people that think violence is the way to accomplish anything.  I am so glad our congress members were not injured. 

My father had so much respect for life that I will always remember him getting bugs out of a pool so they wouldn’t drown.  I hope in 2021 we will respect each other and work together for a better America. 

On a more cheerful note, I am pleased to sell another print of Marsh View at Pawleys Island to a great North Carolina patron! The selection of mat and frame to offset the print is beautiful! Be sure to click on the link to see all the print possibilities!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Well, today I have something from the Word Man that made me groan.  Funny, but so weird that I did groan.  I have congestion almost all of the time.  I don’t know if it is allergies or some other problem.  When this pandemic is over I am going to see a specialist to see if I have a polyp or something.  It is always on the right side.

Anyway, I said to Clyde my nose is always running. 

Do you go after it? 

GROAN and then a laugh.  He never quits!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell another print of Richmond on the James and Good for the Turkey Farmers…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I am real excited about my new painting which is a very small acrylic sunset in a marsh that I tried to paint in a youtube last week.  It was too much to even get one layer on a video and I like to keep them to twenty minutes so I got angry with it while filming and decided to abort and do a demo painting that wouldn’t take up so much time. 

I said some things I shouldn’t say, especially on a video so I destroyed that one.  The next day I looked at the aborted painting and thought it looked much better than I thought it did so I decided to work on it and it is just about done.

Since for a lot of my youtube videos I used cheap paint and paper it won’t be for sale but archival small and large prints will be available.  I think it will be a very popular painting.

So glad to sell another print of the very popular Richmond on the James to a great Nevada patron!  This one is another Christmas ornament print.  It is great to think of my artwork on Christmas trees!  Below is the painting with all kinds of print possibilities on my website and at the bottom of the post is the painting on a Christmas ornament on Zazzle!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Many years ago there was a commercial on TV making fun of Thanksgiving leftovers which I still remember. 

It was done to the 12 Days of Christmas song. 

The joke was going through all the dishes that could be used with leftover turkey and where five golden rings is, it had  Flaming Turkey Wings! We like to repeat that joke on Thanksgiving. 

This time when Clyde was eating more leftover turkey I mentioned I read that turkey is high in iron. 

According to who? The turkey farmers? 

Not sure, but it sounds good. 

Good for the farmers. That’s for sure.

Time to eat more turkey.
