Glad to get some rain!  We have some tomato plants and they were sagging a little.  Clyde can’t eat tomatoes so I think it is real nice of him to plant them for me and Alan.  I am trying real hard to get all of my work done so I can get out of here. 

I am one of those rare girls that does not like to shop but my summer shirts are falling apart so I am going to suck it up and get to a store.  Maybe I will break my ten minute shopping record!

 Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

I love to goad Clyde because he almost always comes up with  a funny I like to post.  Laughter is very important to me and sometimes he makes me laugh so hard I have to gasp for break.  So far, we haven’t had to call 911!

As I have mentioned before I have always thought Clyde was a handsome man and he still is after all these years.  He thinks I am kind, blind, and out of my mind but I don’t agree.

Since yesterday was our anniversary I told him I married Gorgeous George.  His reply was then why did you marry me, too?  Ha ha!  I am not a bigamist, you fool!

Please click on my Youtube.

I have started a new Blue Ridge Parkway painting and it is going great!  Of course they are always great at the beginning before the battle royale.  I will never stop loving painting and I hope someday to drop dead with a paint brush in my hand.  Looking forward to tomorrow in the studio.  So many paintings.  Never enough time.

 

Here are two more florals.

 

flowg (1)Radford Flower Garden    Original 11″ x 14″ Oil Painting   $313

Prints on Paper or Canvas and Greeting Cards Available at  KENDALL KESSLER ART

“Radford Flower Garden” is a close-up of part of a garden in Radford, VA. The owners must use a lot of annuals as the garden is different every year. I am always on the look-out for red/green color combinations. I am quite the colorist but I like red/green color systems better than any others. As I have mentioned before, years ago at a competition when I was introduced to the famous artist May Stevens, she exclaimed, Oh, the red-green painter! I won a purchase award at the show.

The Red Rose   Original 14″ x 16″ Oil Painting   $468

Prints on Paper or Canvas and Greeting Cards Available at  KENDALL KESSLER ART

 

The Red Rose is a sumptuous, colorful still life that is centered around one red rose. The vase is full of roses and some wildflowers but the red rose stands out as the gleaming focal point of the painting. I am especially pleased with the color contrast and vibrant linear accents in this work

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned ad nauseum I spend a lot of time on this computer blogging about my artwork.  I want my paintings to live after I am gone so I promo as much as possible.  I was griping to my husband that I was ONE WITH THE COMPUTER and he said one of these days it is going to follow you out of the room.   I don’t doubt it!

I have been trying all day to get a blog done but this day has shot by so fast I am looking at all the things I needed to do in the rear view mirror! 

My husband had a weird suggestion.  He noticed I still have my mallet and chisel from a sculpture class I took a long time ago.  Maybe I can pound or carve it into a better day that doesn’t fly by? 

Like I said.  Weird suggestion, but what else would you expect  from The Word and Bird Man?

 

muchroompickercopyrightThe Mushroom Picker   Original 32″ x 40″ Oil Painting $2580.00

Prints on Paper or Canvas and Greeting Cards Available at   KENDALL KESSLER ART

 

The Mushroom Picker is a languid view of a mushroom picker at Pandapas Pond in Giles County. This is one of many sites that my husband, Clyde, researches for birds and butterflies. On one of his excursions he came upon this man and took a slide of him which I used for the painting. The light in this scene was intense and flickering though out the bank.

It looked like it was dancing around the figure. 

 

watergitlbigMy Turn  Original 20″ x 19″ Pastel Painting    $790

 Prints on Paper or Canvas and Greeting Cards Available at   KENDALL KESSLER ART

 

My Turn is a delightful pastel painting of a toddler watering flowers. I love to watch children.  They are in a world all their own.  It is no wonder they like to believe in fairies!  The flower garden is on the edge of a woods and the cool foliage colors beautifully accent the warm colors in the girl’s hair and clothing. I live to paint but I also work in pastels and other mediums.

I am very proud of my American Artist Award from famed pastelist Daniel Greene.

Here are two more portraits of my son Alan.  These paintings are very special!

 

Allookmebig (1)Alan Looking at Me    Original  24″ x 18″  Oil Painting     $7000.00

Prints on Paper or Canvas and Greeting Cards Available at    KENDALL KESSLER ART

Looking at Me is a painting of my son when he was nine months old.  I did a number of paintings from photographs of Alan when he was young and I was amazed at how he seemed to pose for me when he was a baby.

In one photograph, as soon as he saw the camera he grabbed his foot and held it up and grinned.

We are always amazed at how fast our children grow up and I miss a lot of his younger years. I still have many vivid memories of all that he did and said. I wrote down many things he said so I wouldn’t forget those times. I am especially pleased with the sumptuous light effect in this painting.

aloncouchbig (1)

Alan on The Couch    Original  25″ x 40″  Oil Painting     $10,000.00

Prints on Paper or Canvas and Greeting Cards Available at    KENDALL KESSLER ART

Alan on the Couch is a painting I did years ago and was not happy with the result. I recently got it back out and worked on it and now I am satisfied with it. My son, Alan, is biting his lip and holding his ball for a rare still moment. I spent a lot of time chasing after him as he tried to jump over the sides of the couch.

I am especially pleased with the light effect and the bold brushwork in this painting.

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

Years ago I started taking Line Dancing lessons in an attempt to give up skating. I was becoming more and more afraid of the people that don’t know how to skate at rinks. Well, it didn’t work so now I do both and my husband took lessons for a while.  He has to get up in the middle of the night for work so he quit the lessons.

He isn’t much for going out at night so once in a while I go Line Dancing with friends from the class.  It is great fun and hopefully we will be there tonight!  Looking forward to it!

 

I hope you enjoyed portraits by an artist of The Blue Ridge Parkway!

Sad Day


My sweet heart of a father-in-law died suddenly yesterday.  We are all going down to be with my mother-in-law in a little while.  He was a great father, grandfather, and friend. 

We will all miss him very much.

Our son was their first grand child.

Window Al   Original 7″ x 5″ Oil Painting    $500

Prints on Paper or Canvas and greeting cards Available at    KENDALL KESSLER ART

Window Al is an intense painting of my son by the window with a venetian cord in his mouth. He was always playing on the couch by the window when he was a toddler and he liked to chew on the cord.

I was forever taking it out of his mouth and putting it up high but it often fell down and he would be at it again. This is one of many fond memories of his young years.

Concentration   Original 7″ x 5″ Oil Painting    $500

Prints on Paper or Canvas and greeting cards Available at    KENDALL KESSLER ART

Concentration is a close-up of my son staring at a toy when he was three by a window.

I am especially pleased with the brushwork and color contrast of this work.

A Naturalist  Original 7″ x 5″ Oil Painting    $500

Prints on Paper or Canvas and greeting cards Available at    KENDALL KESSLER ART

A Naturalist is a portrait of my husband, Clyde Kessler, who is a well-known naturalist in the New River Valley.

I am extremely pleased with the brushwork and intense textural surface of this painting.

 

 

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned a number of times my husband and I did not grow up with computers and I am beginning to be very thankful.  They are great but they are extremely aggravating at times. 

My husband is better with them than I am since he is one one all day at work.

Yesterday I called him with another computer problem.  Here is what he had to say.

You did not reach the I want to Throw my Computer out the Window Help Desk.  Please try again.
