Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I have been having trouble sleeping lately due to some soreness in my legs.  I think there should be some sort of meter that tells you when to quit so that muscles don’t get mad at you.  I do work hard but I don’t think I do too much.

Anyway, my husband calls me at 7:3o to get me up so I can take our son to work.  He gets up at 4:30 to go to work so he can get a parking place that is not miles from the office.

This morning when I answered I let out a long groan.  His response was for me to translate.  I explained that I had been awake every hour since 3:30 and that is why I groaned.  He said go throw some rocks, or better yet, throw the computer out the window.

Now that is a great idea!

It seems the harder I work on promoting my artwork the less I get done.  There were two promo things I was going to do today and neither one of them is done.  Oh well, I never quit so I will be at it again tomorrow.  I am enjoying my new series and am especially pleased with my latest one that I added to Suggestions on my portfolio.  Please check out this vibrant series that I am creating out of what I see in the paint as I combine colors and react to their contrast and texture!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

The other day I asked my husband to call a government agency on behalf of our son.  I was very busy and decided to delegate a little.  He was at work and thought he could try to straighten something out on a break.

He got an actual human on the phone after only a few minutes wait and then was told the problem could be easily fixed but he was not authorized to communicate with the agency.  I forgot that I was listed as the contact person.  My husband was informed that it was another member of the family but they couldn’t tell him the name.

 

I think after all these years my husband knows my name!  LOL

My Art

I am pleased that more and more of my prints are being bought by the public!  My main medium is oil paint but I am extremely versatile and even have a photography folder that I am very proud of.

Yesterday two small prints from my I Love the Beach folder went to a great patron in Veneta, Oregon.

 Life with the Bird and Word Man

Yesterday my husband, Clyde Kessler, found out he published  “Fiddling in a January Thaw” in Contemporary Haibun Online.  It will be published sometime in March.      This is the ninth poem he has published in this magazine.  Yeah Word Man!

Nothing funny out of his mouth today.  Maybe tomorrow!                                 .

Rock Castle Gorge

ABreakintheCloudscopyrightA Break in the Clouds is my second best-selling print on my website kendall-kessler.artistwebsites.com

The original painting is owned by a great Virginia patron who has four of my large paintings

If I had to pick a favorite locale on the great Blue Ridge Parkway it would be Rock Castle Gorge.  I have done many paintings of this area and my husband has spent so much of his time there that I told him he should have a mail box on Rocky Knob.

Many years ago the chestnut was the basis of the economy in Rock Castle Gorge but a chestnut blight in 1914 ravaged the trees in the United States and by 1919 the American chestnut trees died out in the Rock Castle Community.

At one time there were 30 families but by 1930 there were only 10.

The Blue Ridge Parkway was created through President Franklin D. Roosevelt’s New Deal. Those living in the Rock Castle community had to sell their homes. Young men from the community found a steady paycheck working for the Civilian Conservation Corps(CCC) helping to construct the parkway.

Some of my husband’s ancestors lived in Rock Castle Gorge before the establishment of the parkway.

Every fall he leads Hawk Migration studies and has spent countless hours studying birds and butterflies there.

I gained this information about Rock Castle Gorge from my husband, Clyde Kessler, and from Hike Back in Time at Rock Castle by Eliza Winston.
