Sometimes I think I should just take a break from all my work and just relax.  I used to despise shopping and still don’t like it but these days it is a break.  There are zillions of things I would do if I could talk myself out of computer work and artwork but I am driven to get my art out to people and that requires a lot of effort every day. 

I did get to the lake a few times this summer and my hubby went with me!  He is not much for swimming but birds and butterflies always show up  so he is happy where ever he goes.  He actually writes down data every single time he is out of the house.  Now, that is dedication! 

Anyway, I am hoping to make a lot of progress on my latest painting today.  It started out good but I had to take such a long break from it that it is presenting problems right now.  Live to paint, love to paint, but it can be a real pain in the you know where at times.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday Clyde was about to leave the house with food in his beard. 

You have food in your beard. 

That’s just my reserves. 

I thought your reserves were the pieces you drop on your chest when you lie down. 

Those are my auxiliary pieces. 

Considering how we eat and the clothes we wear I guess people could say we are uncouth. 

I lost my couth in my youth. 

Argh!  The Word Man strikes again.

You know this is going on the internet.

Yeah.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Struggling with Latest Painting and Eat a Hot dog…

FREE SHIPPING ON PRINTS THROUGH midnight SEPTEMBER 3RD!!!!!

As we all know shipping artwork is very expensive so be sure to take advantage of this great Holiday Special!

Painting is such a weird process. One minute you think a painting is coming along and will be done soon and then the painting starts talking to you and asks you about your current approach to it.  I hate, hate, hate wasting paint and sometimes I hold back on my loaded paintings because of the cost of paint.  The second stage has a strong impasto surface but I thought I still needed one more layer which I started a few days ago but now I am working in areas because I don’t think I need to cover everything again. 

Some areas are truly done and I don’t want to mess them up.  The third layer is always the hardest and I’ll best most people reading this have no idea as to what I am talking about.  Oh well, I know there are other artists that understand.  Love what I do but it is not easy.  I still have both ears.  I refuse to let it drive me nuts although I think Van Gogh would have had mental problems despite his profession.  It ran in his family.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

The Bird Man is out doing his thing with our son.  Last night he saw over 200 hawks from our back yard as some neighbor kids made fun of him and teased a dog.  Clyde has endured insults about bird watching his whole life so the rude comments he receives just roll off his back.  The time someone reported him because they thought he may have been a terrorist was not something he could ignore. 

I admire his naturalist efforts and have learned a lot from him about our fragile environment.  I am too antsy to spend all the hours he does studying birds but I think it is great and I am extremely impressed that he has uploaded over 20,000 sightings to ebird at Cornell University.  I don’t think ignorance is bliss but I do think a lot of Americans think it is.  We need to shape up. 

Saw a funny cartoon about today’s Holiday.        

Happy Labor Day!  Now stuff your self with hotdogs like a good American!

Glad to back to oils and I am very happy with the first stage of my latest Blue Ridge painting!   I love oil paint the best, but I get more uptight when I paint in this medium.  A lot of painters consider watercolors to be the most difficult painting medium.  I can’t agree.  I consider oils to be the most difficult, but I love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When Clyde and I take walks at Wildwood Park the towhees are always yelling “drink your tea” over and over again.  It is a pretty bird call but it can get monotonous.   The other day  I read in a blog that drinking tea actually fights the bacteria in our mouths which, of course, helps with tooth decay. 

When I told Clyde that, he had a whacko theory as to why towhees keep on telling us to drink our tea.  Maybe they once had teeth and are now telling everybody to drink their tea or else!  Now that’s a weird one, even for The Bird Man!

Rain, rain go away!  We are having a monsoon right now in Radford.  My Line Dance troupe had to cancel a performance last night.  I was looking forward to that one since it is at the old train station in Pulaski and there are vendors that I usually buy from while we are waiting to perform.  Oh well.  I think most of the vendors cancelled too.  We need the rain but we don’t need a weekly deluge.  Hope to see the sun soon!

 

I have decided to take my head out of the sand and interact more with other artists so here is a link to an interesting article on an artist that is really into brushwork like I am! Check out the great artwork of Winston Torr!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Sometimes it really is the little things that are super irritating.  I am trying to compose a piano piece just for fun.  I have been playing the piano since I was twelve and it never occurred to me to write music but I thought I would  give it a try.  I can’t believe how slow it is going.  I have always been good at reading music but now that I am trying to write it I can’t remember all the different symbols for the notes in the bass which is crazy, since I read them every day without any problem.

Also, my pencil keeps breaking and our electric sharpener is jammed and the little plastic one just keeps breaking the pencil.  One of these days I will finish my amateur attempt at composing and get it copyrighted.  I’m sure someone will want to steal it.  I would put LOL but Clyde thinks it is a nice piece of music so you never know. He has spent quite a bit of time studying music and has written a few pieces that I like.

I saw a cute pencil joke the other day.  Knock knock,  Who’s there?  A pencil.  A pencil who?  Never mind.  It’s pointless.

Well, my ipad has bit the dust.  The store clerk said you can’t replace the battery.  Once it is gone, that is the end of the ipad.  That is a sorry end for a device I paid a lot of money for and hardly ever used. 

I will try getting a different cable and see if that works but I will probably have to get a new ipad which I doubt I will do.  I will just use a laptop when I need something in my studio.  Time to get in there. 

It really is a dreary Monday, so I need to work so I can cheer up.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Well, the cat problem is almost over!  Two of our neighbors wanted a kitten and they got them before they went feral.  There is one left that they are trying to coax away from the mother.  According to Clyde, they are about the age when the mother will push them away so this works out right for the neighbors and the cats. 

Not sure what will become of the mother.  I called Animal Control but they have not responded yet.  Oh well.  The kittens are so adorable that I told Clyde I wished we could have a cat and Alan and I wouldn’t have allergic reactions and the cat would be no trouble and I wouldn’t be the one to take care of it. 

I was waiting for the “Careful what you wish for admonition”, but I got a weird Clyde response instead.  Watch out for what you wish for.   You may need a 42 page document that guarantees the wish won’t bite you! 

That sounds about right.  LOL!
