Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Latest Butterfly Painting and You can stay…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I tried something different this time with my latest Suggestion painting that I filmed and will present on Monday.  I had been covering the surface quickly with a large brush and then spending more time on the second stage after I dried the first stage.  This time I wanted to have more complicate systems of color like my main work so I used a small brush and took more time on the first stage.  A nebulous, and I mean nebulous butterfly seemed to show up so that is what I went with. 

The contrast between the butterfly and the background is not strong, so in the third stage I will separate the two and make it even more complicated.  Love to work with color! More than anything else, my work is about color regardless of the level of abstraction.  Looking forward to finishing the painting and I will have a link to the finished work here and in the description on the Youtube! 

I am up to 191 followers now and hope to greatly increase that number!  Cheers on a Saturday! 

Check out a representational colored pencil butterfly below.  The one I am working on is an imaginary abstract butterfly.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 A long time ago I thought it would be a good idea to buy a small house so we wouldn’t fill it up with stuff that we have to get rid of. Well, that didn’t work. I have spent years moving things out and we really need more room for all of Clyde’s records. 

A lot of his research needs to be in paper form rather than on a computer so, instead of scaling down, we will be scaling up. 

Last night when I made the very short trip from the kitchen to the other end of the house to find my glasses and other things, I thought about what it would be like in a big house. 

I told Clyde I had better sharpen up before we move. 

Well, if you get too sharp you might throw me out. 

No, you and all your stuff gets to stay.

That’s a relief.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Having Fun with an Elephant…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

Whatever happened to paper forms? Today I spent an hour and fifteen minutes trying to straighten out an online service.  The representative was very helpful and she said all the problems I was having with the form was because it is made tricky in an effort to outsmart scammers and imposters.  Yikes!  She helped me fill out the form over and over again as it was refused for one reason or another. 

After an hour I told her I was about ready to open a vein.  She laughed and then apologized for laughing.  I wasn’t offended.  It was just a joke but I was trying to indicate how frustrated I was.  I claimed victory and retreated.  Will try again another day.  ARGHHHH! 

Be sure to check out this week’s video!  I was in the mood for a Whimsy painting this time and used a fun toy elephant bank my mother-in-law gave us.  She is giving her kids some mementos from their childhood. I think I turned it into an expressive visual experience!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Multi-Art Tasking…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

Wow! Today at the Grocery store I saw something I never thought I would see again!  Someone was underneath his car working on it!  I said to what appeared to be his wife I was amazed and didn’t think anyone knew how to work on a car anymore.  She smiled and said, he can!  She looked very proud.  I don’t blame her.  Everything is so complicated today that we need all kinds of help for just about everything we depend on. 

I have no idea how to fix a computer, T.V.,refrigerator, car, etc.  The computer takeover has made it especially difficult for a lot of us.  As I have said before, if they ever computerize a bathroom, I will have to get an out house! 

Anyway, still working hard on some Suggestion paintings,  youtubes, and a new Blue Ridge Parkway painting of the James River! I think I am taking the, I live to paint statement, to new heights or lows depending on how well my feet hold out! 

Be sure to click on my latest Youtube below.  I think the conch painting turned out especially well!

I have the second stage of Standing Shadows completed and am pleased with the intense mood of this work.  The girl looks as if she is holding herself for security but she is about to walk off the podium into the shadows.  Pleased with the strong emotive effect that is accentuated by vibrant color contrast.  I think this one will be the last one for a while.

There will be one more layer but it may not look that different.  I achieved what I wanted to achieve with these new nudes and now I want to move on to something else. 

Time for a break!  Going to the lake before it rains.  The warm weather ends so quickly that I am determined to get to the lake as much as possible. 

Cheers on a beautiful Wednesday!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I am having a great time working on my latest addition to my Beautiful Nudes series!  I keep wondering when it is going to start aggravating me.  It is in acrylics and acrylics don’t usually aggravate me the way oil paint does.  Don’t misunderstand.  I love to paint and I really do live to paint but it isn’t easy.  If it were easy I think it would be boring and I would give it up.  It is always a new experience that challenges all that I am as an artist. 

It is such an intense mind experience.  As long as I can stand up I will paint.  I know many people think artists sit and some do but most do not because they have to walk back and forth and see how the work looks at a distance.  It shouldn’t only exist up close.  We want the experience to carry far into a space. 

Time to get into that space and get to work!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is a much tougher audience than I am so I am always pleased when I come up with something that makes him laugh. 

I am so tired of hearing all the claims made by drug companies. Tonight one was using the four out of five people that use their drug get the results they claim they will get. 

I said four of five people that used that drug are dead. 

Clyde chimed in with, and the fifth one is in a coma. 

Wow! Mean spirited tonight!  Just joking around.
