What a Hoot!

I am still having a great time with my new Series, Suggestions!  These paintings are based on nebulous shapes I see as I paint an abstract work.

I am very pleased with them all, but I think this one is my favorite so far!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

 

“Roanoke Beauty” is a small painting of Happy Hollow Ground Park in Roanoke, VA. This painting was sold out of Towhee Hill Studio. It is a colorful, textural view of a beautiful park ground. The boards are viewing platforms for visitors. This is one of many New River sites that have been inspirations for my paintings. I especially like to find sites with flowers so I will have a lot of color interaction.

 

Now that my husband is off until 2015 ,is he sleeping in rather than getting up at 4:30?  No way.  He is still getting up and checking on the various bird and wildlife species in Radford, VA.  No matter what the weather, the Bird Man is always outside doing what he loves.  I went on just part of a Christmas Bird Count many years ago and thought I would freeze to death.  I admire these people, but it is just not for me.

I couldn’t agree more with the old saying that what is heaven to one person is hell to another.  I’m sure there are plenty of people that would like to do anything rather than stand up at an easel for hour after hour.  That is my heaven but it is a job and does take a lot of discipline.  It is just like playing a musical instrument.  You have to put in a lot of time every day to accomplish a work of art.  I love my job but I could find a lot of other things to do.  I truly do live to paint and  I will be in there soon!

The Bad Weather Must Hold Off Until Saturday!


Please click on my latest Youtube!  I will have another one up tomorrow or Saturday.

 

When I was in school my class mates and I had a show and made posters  to attract viewers.  Someone in the Art Department decided to be funny and drew comic things on one poster.  On my picture a chain was drawn around my waist. A Brush was on the end of it and in my hand.  That certainly was true! 

 

Still, I do get away from the easel once in a while and a bunch of us Line Dancers are going to a club to dance tomorrow night!  Bad weather is on the way and I hope it doesn’t happen tomorrow!  Got to dance!  CHEERS!

Wading 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 I saw a nude leaning forward so I brought her out and put her water. I think the peaceful effect is beautiful.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

I am so glad I married someone that makes me laugh and he said the other night that he was glad he married someone that likes to laugh.  We haven’t had to call 911 yet but I do get to the point that I need to stop and breath!   Whenever I find something on Facebook that I think is a real crack up I show him.  The other day there was a great one that I know Clyde can truly relate to.  He has worked with the Forest Service for many years and has had a few close calls with bears and one time he had to confront one running at him.  He knew what to do so thankfully I am not a widow.

 

Anyway on Facebook there was a picture of a bear running toward the person that took the picture.  The caption read, “Not a runner?”  Now you are!

I am close to done on my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting and am very pleased with it!  Here are two more favorite florals.

 

rosetrio (1)Rose Trio  Original Oil Painting has been Sold

Prints on Paper, Canvas, Metal, Greeting Cards, !-phone and Galaxy phone cases Available at  KENDALL KESSLER ART

 

Rose Trio is an intense impasto oil painting with strong color contrast and complicated surface. The painting was applied in many layers to achieve a surface that continually changes throughout the work. The brushwork turns an everyday subject into a great visual experience.

Tall Blue Vase is one of my favorite floral paintings. The vase has a beautiful surface that works well with the assortment of flowers that catch the light in an arc.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before I have always had to watch what I eat.  Unlike many people I talk to I was never able to eat what I wanted without gaining weight.  I continue to fight the Battle of the Bulge and don’t see an end in sight.

For Thanksgiving I brought a carrot cake to my mother-in-laws.  I always bring something but she prefers to cook most of the dinner.  Unfortunately the carrot cake wasn’t a big hit so it came home with us.  I asked my husband to take it to work with him so his office could enjoy it.  He forgot but said he would take it the next day.  It was still there and it was calling to me but cake is one thing I hardly ever eat because I eat too much of it.

I solved the problem.  I taped a note that said, “Take me with you”, on the container.  He leaves early in the morning and I was pleased to see it was gone! 

Now where are those chocolate chip cookies I made?

Great Start on a New Series!


 

Please Click on my Youtube!

 

Yesterday I started a new series of paintings that I am going to work on at the same time as my new Blue Ridge paintings.  The series is called Suggestions. These are paintings that are done by letting images appear in an abstract surface.  The first one suggested an eye and cheek bone so I went with a face.  Looking forward to the next one!

Life with Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

I have been concerned about our environment and our resources since I was twelve and it is no wonder I married a dedicated naturalist.  I agree with the person that posted on Facebook the other day there is no planet B so we need to be concerned about this one.    If you research a lot of charitable organizations you will find that a lot of them are more of a business than a helpful group.  Many of them have very highly paid administrators and little of the money they acquire goes to the actual cause.

I mention all this because I would like to recommend an environmental cause for cyber Monday but I can’t be sure the money will go where it should but I have received notice from The Chesapeake Bay Foundation that portions of the sales on Amazon today will go to help the bay.  I am considering buying some things today and using the code.  I hope my efforts will be useful towards cleaning up the Bay.

 

If anyone knows whether or not this is a legitimate promotion, I would be glad to hear from you.  I want to help but I do not want to be misled.

Here is the notice that was sent to me.

 

Just make sure to use this link—cbf.org/amazon—for all your purchases. For everything you buy through this link, a portion of the purchase will go straight to our work to restore the Bay and its rivers and streams.
