Mary Beth’s Gift is one of my favorite still lifes. I am especially pleased with the use of line and intense color contrast in this work. I have always believed that it is not what you do in art but how you do it. This plant was given to me by an office mate and I liked it so much that I decided to make it into a work of art. I found the perfect doily that adds to the strong linear accents and contrasts nicely with the complementary colors.

This pastel painting won second place in the Pastel Division at an International Juried Competition in Nogales, Arizona.

Old Plant is a vibrant painting of one of our planters by an open window. I am especially pleased with the strong patterns and value contrast in this work. I haven’t met the medium I don’t like and oil pastels are high on the list of favorites. My main medium is oil paint but I am also love pastels and have won awards in both from prominent artists.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

It has been a while since I posted about the Blue Ridge Discovery Center that Clyde works with so here is some interesting news.   The hikes will start up again in the warm weather!

BioSurvey: Matthews State Forest

In support of and compliance with the Virginia State Forest’s objective to demonstrate and educate, Blue Ridge Discovery Center is proposing a multi-year biological survey of Matthews State Forest. Through this project, BRDC will also bring attention to wildlife habitat and water quality while providing relevant data for future land use planning.

To reinforce the educational component, BRDC will enlist science and art teachers based in the Galax, Grayson and Carroll counties region. Through these teachers, we will create groups of students to conduct the field studies under the direction of BRDC staff and volunteers from local universities and colleges.
