Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Getting used to being a Shut In and Bad Decisions…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, my naturalist husband is still getting out.  He is being careful to steer clear of other people but he is getting out.  I am just going to the grocery store when needed but when it gets a little warmer I will take a walk in beautiful Wildwood Park. 

We are very fortunate in that we have what we need and are just staying inside.  Like my favorite Virus joke says, For the first time in human history we can save the world’s people by lying on the floor and watching T.V.  Let’ not screw this up. 

I am certainly doing my part but I am not on the floor for TV.  I reserve that space for Yoga.  My great teacher is sending us sessions on the computer which works just fine!  I can’t seem to find ones that I like so far on youtube.  I either find ones that aren’t much more than sleeping on the floor or I find ones that have so many Downward Facing Dogs that I almost start barking. My teacher always has great sessions and I am sure she can use the money so most of my yoga stuff is with her. 

Be sure to check out my latest Dallas Texas skyline painting Demo Youtube above and stay safe!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I were trying to order hand sanitizer online.  Actually I was trying to order it and had a hard time deciding what kind to get so I got Clyde online to do it.  There were so many selections and Clyde asked me which ones I want. 

I don’t know.  I am not good at making decisions.  I married you. 

Ha ha. 

Now you know I am just kidding. 

Well, all online hand sanitizers are sold out so it doesn’t matter which one to select.  There aren’t any.  

Well, we may not be able to get any hand sanitizer but I still have you! 

My mind reels with sarcastic replies. 

I think I better get back to the studio before I get into any more trouble.

LOL!

I wish we were at an open beach right now, virus free.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Not Pleased with an Uninvited Guest…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Oh Yuck!  Saturday night I noticed an itchy place on the back of my right thigh.  It looked like a tag that had become irritated due to scratching.  It was quite red and it looked like there was a little blood around the place where it was attached to my thigh. 

Well, yesterday I took a better look in better light and saw what looked like some little black hairs around it and it looked more like something that was burrowing into my thigh rather than a tag so I tried to pull it and underneath the flesh  was a very small dark insect.  I used a magnifying glass to try to figure out what it was.  I was relieved to see it had antennae and six legs.  Ticks do not have antennae and they have eight legs.  I think it is probably my first bed bug ever. 

My yearly dermatology appointment is tomorrow.  I will get the verdict on that and some other concerns.  It certainly is another Monday with a lot to do and a lot of problems.  On to the others!  We all just march on!  Be sure to click on my new Youtube below that was uploaded today!

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Please click on my latest Demo

Youtube of glowing stars!

Technology and me do not mix and it is almost always my fault.  I worked on another Demo Youtube today and it ran too long.  I was just about finished when the beep came on.  Not enough room on the card.  ARGGH!  I knew it was longer than some of my other ones but I didn’t think it was that long. 

Oh well.  From now on I will have a clock in front of me so I can make sure it does not run over.  Since the paintings are done in layers I think I will still use this one and just get to the next layer. 

Anyway, I am glad to sell another print of Memphis Lights to a great VA patron!  Sold a lot of prints of this commissioned painting.  It is my best selling Skyline Beauty painting!

Be sure to check out my latest Youtube below!  Lots of great comments on this one!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Present First Demonstration Video and Killing Kryptonite


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I am happy to present my first Demo Youtube!  It is rather long so I may look into those speeded up ones I see other artists do.  In this one I did the first two stages of a Suggestion painting. 

In these works I paint in an abstract expressionist manner and then look to see if some vague form shows up.  Then I pull it out.  It is a great experience and prints are available.  I don’t sell the originals because I use very inexpensive paint and paper for this series. 

The wall art prints and prints on just about anything are archival and great!  Please check out the Youtube below!  I am going to try to make one a week to get more attention on Youtube.

The billboard contest is still on!  Please vote for my work!

The company that handles my print sales is hosting a billboard contest and I would greatly appreciate your votes!  The contest ends July 31st!  Here are the popular paintings I entered and the links to the contest are directly below the image!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I have a lot of criticisms for certain TV shows.  There are many we like and many we can’t stand to watch for a minute.  When one of those comes on, I say. 

Oh no! Kryptonite! 

That show would kill kryptonite. 

A show can’t kill kryptonite.

That one would shoot kryptonite into outer space faster than the speed of light. 

Here’s the remote.  You find something.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Working Away and They don’t make them that big….


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

Still working on Music without Words paintings and looking forward to one more, this time a large one with a lot of depth.  I know that the illusion of depth is the main reason I like to work from nature most of the time. 

Since I like that effect in my representational works I think it will be a good idea to incorporate depth in a non-figurative one.  I have some ideas in my head and I hope to start tomorrow.  Today has been a whirlwind of computer work that is still not done.  Hope to get finished soon but I usually work in the evenings, too. 

Oh well, this is the life I have chosen.  If I could give up painting I wouldn’t be working so hard to promote it but I can’t give it up so back to promo! 

Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday I was washing dishes when I remembered I did not have my glasses on.  I can’t get them clean without my glasses.  I was so surprised when I remembered they were on my head I had to run and tell Clyde. 

Clyde, I now know for sure there is hope for me. 

You got a big enough shovel to send me out the door? 

No, I remembered I had my glasses on my head and didn’t run all over the house to find them. And they don’t make shovels that big. 

Maybe you can take two snow shovels and attach them together. 

Too much work.  Back to the dishes.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Last night I asked Clyde how his knee is doing. 

Do you still have pain there?

Yes.

Well, now I have a pain.

I am not leaving. 

Not you.  I have a pain in the back of my right ankle.  So, if I were to compare you to a  pain I wouldn’t say you were a pain in the neck.  I guess I would have to say you are a pain in the heel. Or, maybe just a heel.  I think that word is still used to describe a crummy person. 

Married too long to a writer.  You can’t help but pick up on the weird word play.
