Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell Prints of Bear Beauty…

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!


Well, today’s painting session was an arm wrestler but it turned out well. I violated one of my own rules that I don’t think will ever change.  When I first started painting in oils I didn’t think the cost of paint was that bad. I hardly used any and my paintings were done in very thin layers. That was a long time ago and now I work in my own take on the impasto method with a brush that requires a lot of expensive paint. 

When I remember I have to practically put it on with a spoon, all goes well and I doesn’t seem like a huge expense. When I don’t use a lot, I end up having to start over and the sum total is much more expensive than if I just remember that rule.  Rules are meant to be broken so that is why I keep trying to go backwards but it looks as if this rule is here to stay – at least for now. 

Anyway,  I am glad to sell some prints of Bear Beauty, one of my Kendall Expressions series.  This time the sale is of greeting cards to a great Minnesota patron. I have included others from that series below.   My work is on just about anything and the talented, beautiful actress Morgan Fairchild recently  bought one of my favorite florals on a t-shirt and tweeted herself with it on!  Love it! She has purchased three original wildflower paintings and a number of prints on various items, including face masks.

I am so tired.  I am doing my part for the election which makes it even harder to get all my computer work done.  Oh well.  I’m sure there are many that have it much harder than me during this awful pandemic which seems to be getting worse. 

Stay safe!

One more painting of Roanoke near The Blue Ridge Parkway and I can’t even find it…

My Artwork

campbellavecopyrightCampbell Avenue       Original Painting has been sold

Prints on paper or canvas available at     KENDALL KESSLER ART

Here is one more of my paintings of beautiful Roanoke, VA before I move on to other great places in Southwest Virginia.  This one is a great celebration of the beautiful pear trees that adorn Campbell Avenue.

I always include my phone number on the back of my paintings and was very pleased when the buyer called me to tell me how thrilled she was with the painting.  She hung it in her office.  I have seen her a number of times since then and she always tells me how much she loves it!

Computer Challenged

I am getting a lot of likes on my About page which is much appreciated but when I go to look at the people I follow I have a hard time finding the About page.   So, please be patient with me.  I didn’t grow up with computers and they baffle me at times.

Life with the Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

My husband and I are noticing signs of aging that we don’t like.  I’m sure no one likes the memory problems and general ditziness that we all get if we don’t die young.

The other day I looked up Alzheimer’s symptoms to make sure I am not developing that disease.  I found a list of symptoms of aging with two rows.  The first one was Alzheimer’s and the second row was age.  All of my symptoms are found in the second list.  Yea!!!

Yesterday I said to my husband I just can’t cut the mustard anymore.  He said he couldn’t even find the mustard!
