I am so glad I have my painting to work on in this difficult time.  Other than quarantining myself and wearing a mask when I have to go out, I can’t do anything about this virus but I worry about it all the time.  I will be able to vote but it is just one vote and I constantly worry about the future of our country. 

I tell myself all the time I shouldn’t worry about things I can’t do anything about, but it doesn’t work.  I will be so glad when there is a vaccine for this horrible virus and my candidate is chosen for president. 

My painting is coming along really well which is surprising since I am so distracted.  I am pleased that I can intensely concentrate on it in spite of this difficult time period.  I really do like working with flowers and this garden is really coming along! 

Happy Weekend!

 Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

One more political joke and then I will just look forward to voting in a few days.  I think everyone should vote early for this election. 

Anyway, a lot of people are complaining that Trump is claiming he will fix all the horrible problems that we have under his presidency.  Critics are claiming he is running against himself. 

Clyde’s response. I bet he can beat himself!  LOL! 

Again, if you are a Trump supporter take this with a grain of salt and please don’t come after me and call me derogatory names like I have experienced on Facebook. 

No one has to read my blog if they are offended by it and I don’t want to get into a political debate with anyone.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Concerned about Fake Information and Take it with a Grain of Salt…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I have been so concerned about the upcoming election that it has been difficult to concentrate on my latest painting.  It is coming along very well in spite of all the distractions that keep plaguing my mind.  There is so much false information on the internet. I hope people take the time to fact check what they see on Facebook and other sites that have political posts. 

I don’t know if I have mentioned this before but it bears repeating.   Whenever I hear a politician bragging about success, democrat or republican, I go to sites that I am almost positive are accurate and check out the issue over time. For example, progress in job growth can be ascertained over the years at the Department of Labor. 

There are many sources for stats on the current pandemic.  One man on Facebook was comparing the current pandemic deaths in the US to the Swine Flu 2009 deaths.  He said there were 60 million swine flu deaths and under 6 million Covid-19 deaths so far.  If you look up the Swine Flu stats you will see a number of sources that claim there were around 10,000 deaths. 

We need to be vigilant to get the truth as much as possible.

Clyde and I are not Trump supporters.  If you are, take this with a grain of salt.  We all have  a right to our opinion in this country. 

All living former U.S. presidents advise against voting for Trump. 

Clyde’s response.  I’ll bet if I could dig up a few more they would say that too. 

LOL!  I think he is right.  Be sure to vote in the upcoming election!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Concerned about Post Office and Now I am Clean…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

In order to promote my artwork I spend a lot of time on the internet so I am always seeing news that I have strong opinions about. I don’t want to offend anyone and tell them how they should think about these things but there are some that I think everyone should take seriously regardless of their political affiliation.  The one I am most concerned about is the changes in the postal service.   Sorting machines should not have been taken out of post offices and mail boxes should not have been carted away. The postmaster says no more of that will occur so that it is not a problem with the election. 

THEN WHY HAVEN’T THEY BEEN PUT BACK? 

No more needs to be said.  We will be voting in person at the registrar as soon as it is possible to vote there for this election. If you want to be sure your vote counts look into how it can be done early without standing in line and without delay due to the volume the post office will handle. 

Back to my artwork.  My latest floral is coming along well with a certain sparkle that I wasn’t really trying to achieve. It is always an adventure as I balance between control and accident! 

Have a great day and stay safe!  I have included a link to a face mask above the first painting.  I have been forgetting to do that but will try to remember from now on.

I love to laugh and I am glad I married a guy that loves to laugh, too. I think puns are hilarious. I know a lot of people groan and think they are stupid.  I crack up over them.  Here is one that made Clyde laugh and he is a touch audience.  I used to be a soap addict. Now I am clean.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Mulling over Latest Painting…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I have high hopes for my latest floral.  It is a cultivated flower garden and I am pleased with the spacing and the value pattern.  Now to get to the hard part.  The expression that I can’t explain is always the most important part of the painting for me.  It will be an intricate system of warm and cool colors but it is difficult to get the intricacy that I want and still have a strong surface quality.

Yeah, I bet anyone reading this knows exactly what I am talking about.  I hardly know myself what I am talking about.  Oh well, time to get to the journey. I can’t paint tomorrow due to schedule problems and that is always a problem for me. 

I was listening to Dr. Fauci regarding safe practices during this epidemic and learned something I didn’t know.  A person’ blood type plays a minimal role in regards to the infection.  Type A people are slightly more susceptible to Covid-19 but he said there was very  little difference between blood types regarding this virus.  Good to know since I have A negative.

I have returned to my Skyline Beauty series so be sure to check out the above demo video with San Diego Sparkle!

 Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde’s bird research is mostly limited to out door excursions in our back yard or out door excursions on our front porch.  Staying put due to the pandemic.  I like to tease him about his travels when he heads out to one of his posts.

Don’t get lost. 

I’ll use GPS to get back home. 

You don’t even use that in the car.

Well, strange circumstances call for strange new safe guards. 

Ha ha.  Have fun.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has Begun Latest Floral


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

I think my latest painting is going to be quite a different experience.  I did decide on a creative version of a cultivated floral garden but I am not sure which direction I want to take it in.  I always prefer to elaborate on what is in front of me to express something of myself I can’t explain but this time I may go more into a fantasy version. 

I pretty much have the spacing worked out so now I get to separating out the values and determining the color expression that will work well.  Always an intense experience that usually gets to some arm wrestling.  The last one was a lot of work but each stage seemed to come along without any hair pulling.

We will see this time. I think there is going to be big time arm wrestling, but I hope not. 

Looking forward to working on it tomorrow no matter what happens.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has Decided on Next Floral and Teaching them to Swim…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Well, I finally decided on my next oil painting and started on it yesterday.  I am going to paint a creative interpretation of a flower garden.  I was thinking of another wildflower painting but changed my mind.  I am working from a photograph that I took of part of a flower garden and will greatly change it. 

The photograph will mostly provide some ot the spacing and the types of flowers but I will provide my own expression and may even change the colors of the flowers.  I wish I could explain what I do but I can’t and it really doesn’t matter that much. 

It will be a creation of my own making based on something I saw that will work well with my intentions. It is always a journey from start to end no matter what direction I take. 

Be sure to check out this week’s youtube above! I decided to get back to my Skyline Beauty paintings and this first one is of a San Diego CA skyline.

Life with The Word and Bird Man- Clyde Kessler

 

I think I have mentioned before that when I was young I decided the best way to avoid having an alcohol problem was to not drink at all.  You can’t miss something you never had. 

I don’t say this to brag at all. I am just really into logic and I saw several of my Dad’s friends with a raging alcohol problem and I didn’t want to make life more difficult than it already is.  My Dad did not drink at all.

There is nothing wrong with it, I would rather just leave it alone and Clyde also has left it alone but his reason was much more personal.

Anyway, we two teetotalers got a big kick out of a funnie we saw on an old movie the other day.  One man was drinking and the other was not.

The one that was not drinking said, “I don’t think drinking drowns problems.  It just teaches them to swim.”

I would greatly appreciate a Google review if you like my work!  Here is the link.
