Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Return to Latest Blue Ridge Painting and Staying Alive…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Well, as usual I am wondering what happened to Monday.  Someone shot another day out of a cannon.  I was very glad to get back to work on my latest Blue Ridge Parkway painting and it is still coming along.  I had an art wrestling time with it last week but I think I am over that and looking forward to what will probably be the last layer. 

I can see why experts like to x-ray paintings.  All my layers are intricate systems of brushwork and come completely together at the end.  I didn’t take photos of different stages this time.  I like to do that but it slipped my mind.  So far, I don’t think I am losing very successful parts. 

It has not been one of those paintings that are a terrific struggle.  This one has been like a nice  ride down the river with just a  few bumps.  The tough ones keep me on my toes but it is nice to have one that does not fight with me that much.  Be sure to check out my Monday video above!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I love comedy!  The other day I was watching a great stand up comedian on a show I don’t usually watch and he was cracking me up. 

The last thing he said was he saw a woman with pants that had the word yoga on them.  His comment was the pants may say yoga but the woman in them  says McDonalds. 

I mentioned that to Clyde and said I had seen a lot of girls in yoga pants that say McDonalds but I don’t think I am one of them. 

I agree. 

You are a smart husband that wants to stay alive. 

That’s right.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell another Original Painting and It might leave without me…

I am finally to my blog after a lot of work!  I am so glad to sell another original painting to a great Virginia patron!  Secluded Home which is pictured below is a personal favorite and I am glad it will have a good home.  This one has such a nice atmosphere and intense brushwork. As always wall art prints and prints on just about anything are available by clicking the link below the painting!

Now I have to build a crate which is always a lot more work then you think it would be.  Shipping artwork is tricky.  The painting has to be double boxed and immobilized. I have to cut out the cardboard for the two boxes and put them together.  I have so many different sizes of paintings that I can’t order boxes. They don’t make the kind of box I need.  It is so easy to damage artwork and I take every precaution to prevent that from happening. 

Since I am so busy right now I have decided to upload a short video on Monday about this sale and show some other works in my studio instead of a Painting Demo.  Those videos take quite a lot of time even though they are not very long.  I do a lot of prep regarding what I will paint and how it will be presented as I try to have a pleasant conversation at the same time.

Hope everyone has a great weekend!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I know I have mentioned before that I don’t like all this computerization of our lives but it is great that  I can reach patrons on the internet.

Still, like I said before if they ever computerize the bathroom I will need an out house.

Clyde did that one better. He said if bathrooms are computerized he is afraid someone will hack his toilet.  It might even leave without him. 

Yikes!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Still Staring at the Rain and New Youtube!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

 

Tiring Monday but I am sure I am not the only one saying that.  The phone is ringing all day long with scammers ready for another week of bugging me.  I do not answer my phone unless I know who is calling.  Those robo calls are really working my phone.  I don’t want to just have a cell phone for a number of reasons but that land line sure is a pain! 

I am so pleased to finally getting some work done on another Blue Ridge painting!  It is coming along and I think if I had to say which sort of painting I like to do best it would be The Blue Ridge and surrounding ridges in oil paint.  This one is an intense sunset at Wintergreen.  The patterns of light and shade on the ridges and a few houses is startling and I will be pleased to get into the studio each day to work on it. 

I would rather work with a combination of my daylight flourescent lights and some natural sunlight coming through the window but the weatherman is calling for rain for a while.  Oh well,  I can’t wait for the light I like to get to work and all my paintings are done in a series of layers so maybe the next layer will be to better lighting.

Anyway, be sure to check out my new Youtube above!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased with Latest Youtube and Commission

Please check out my latest video!  I was in the mood for a Center of my Mind Painting!

I am just about finished with the second painting commission and it is turning out really well!  As I said, these are paintings on glass so the process has been quite different from my usual work.  I always paint in layers but  colors do not  resist on the canvas the way some are resisting on the glass. 

I painted on metal one time and had the same problem but eventually was able to completely cover the surface with many layers of tempera paint.  These glass paintings are enamel acrylic which is the best paint to use on glass. 

The originals paintings that lost of lot of the paint had to be done in oils since acrylics only date back to the fifties. 

Anyway, I think I should be done with the second one tomorrow and I thought I would again show the first one here. 

It certainly is a stylized painting with strong color fields!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to Sell another Print of Most Popular Shore Painting and Love means…

Still working away on too many things at the same time.  I am pleased that I am able to juggle a lot of balls at the same time.  Never could really do that.  I am really impressed with people that can juggle.  I do juggle a lot of jobs which is not always easy but I am never bored.

Anyway, I am pleased to sell another framed print of my most popular beach painting, Marsh View at Pawleys Island to a great Pawleys Island patron!  That is certainly a fitting place for it to be! I know it may seem strange that I use that painting as my blog header since it is not a Blue Ridge painting.  Even though I have lived my adult life in the Ridge and Valley mountains which are right next to the Blue Ridge I paint a lot of other settings and my favorite place is the shore.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Today Clyde and I bumped into each other in the hall way.  Neither one of us said anything. 

This thought came to mind which is like the quote from the popular 70’s movie Love Story!

Love means never having to say you are sorry when you bump into each other in the hall way. 

I later mentioned that to Clyde and all I got was an argh!  

So much for that quote!  LOL!

Well, I have done some unusual commissions but my latest is definitely a new experience for me that is turning out very well!  A great patron that owns a number of my prints and one commission asked me to restore some paintings done on glass that were made over 100 years ago! 

A lot of the paint had come off and when I attempted to paint from the back the way the artist did, the damaged first layer still showed, so I either had to scrape off all of the paint or paint on the front and completely cover all layers. 

The patron didn’t have a problem with painting the front.  I think it turned out great and the patron said it looks wonderful so now on to the second one!  The finished painting on glass is below.  It will be placed back into a gorgeous, molded frame.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday I was feeling real good about the very unusual guy I married many years ago so when he came down the hall I said, “Ah, the love of my life!” 

He slowly looked behind  on his right and then slowly looked behind on his left. 

You, you boob!  I am talking about you! 

Oh.

I am so pleased I finished another Youtube Demo today!  I am trying to get more attention on Youtube and more followers.  I think this one turned out real well!  I always take an experimental approach with Youtubes and I was going to paint more of an abstract one but ended up with my main style. 

I am getting lots of great comments on them and another Youtuber is going to feature information about my work on one of his Youtubes!  Always great to get that kind of compliment!  I am also pleased with the progress on my latest commission.  I was having a little trouble with it but now I think it is all clear sailing! 

Hope everyone had a great weekend!  One of these days I might notice the difference between week days and weekends but I doubt it. 

I need to get back to work.
