Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Begins Portrait of The Word and Bird Man…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

Please click on my latest Youtube!

My guys and I spent some time at the Fourth of July celebration in the park!  We always go there and have fun seeing friends, eating, and playing some of the games.  Lots of fun!  I was so pleased to begin my portrait of Clyde this afternoon!  Nothing like working from a model!  This first stage was just to plan out the space and value patterns and it turned out close to what I wanted but I will be making a lot of changes in the second stage and then the real work will begin.  Clyde was a great model! Perfectly still!

 

Happy Fourth Everyone!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, New Suggestion Painting, and The Computer Attacked Me!


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am trying hard to stay away from another Blue Ridge Mountain painting until I get started on my portrait of Clyde.  If I get involved in another landscape I won’t be able to concentrate on the portrait.  Once I get it started then I can work on some other new ones.  Right now I am working on more Suggestion paintings.  They are done in one studio session so I can free myself up to get the portrait going as soon as Clyde can sit for me.

 

Below is my latest!  I am very pleased with the color modulation in Sun Burst!

 Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

If you have read many of my blogs then you know I often get exasperated with the computer.  It is a great machine but it is also very irritating.  Sometimes I am tempted to chuck it right out the window but I know it would creep back in and expect me to fix it up.

Anyway, the other day I called Clyde at work to tell him I had a hole in my pants and a bleeding gash on my leg.  Not a very bad one but it was bleeding!  The computer attacked me!  Okay, I was about to sit down and slammed my leg in to the table it sits on.  I have never done that before and since computers have minds of their own I insist on blaming it for this mishap. 

I think it has heard all of my gripes and decided to strike first.  LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist finds Internet Communication to be Very Difficult…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I don’t usually post on forums because it has been my experience that people often misunderstand what I write.  Today I posted a problem with Support on a site and had to spend a lot of time re-iterating my point and fending off rude attacks.  I wish people would carefully read posts before they comment and there is no need to go on the offensive if they disagree. People can disagree politely.  I hate confrontation.  It will be a long time before I post anything there again.

 Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

When Clyde got home today I had to tell him about the TV court case that made me say, “Wow!”  I spend most of my time on the computer or in the studio but I take breaks and when I do sometimes I like to look at one of those court room shows.  I could not believe the one I say yesterday.  It is so hard to believe anyone would allow that kind of story about themselves to be on TV.  I guess the litigants get paid quite a bit to appear.

Anyway, it seems a girl was suing a one night stand guy for causing a fire in her home that totaled around $1400 worth of damages.  Get this. They were out dancing when she invited him home.  She lit candles for a romantic atmosphere.  He thought she was a well endowed girl and when she took her clothes off and he could see she had been wearing a padded bra he ran out of the house, accidentally knocking over a candle that caused the fire.

Wow, now that is one shallow guy and he appeared on TV to let the world know his character.  Wonder if he will get a date anytime soon.

Such a beautiful day!  Just the right temperature.  I don’t even have any fans on.  I have a hard time relaxing since I am a workaholic but today I could see getting into a hammock and just staring at the mountains that I can see from my yard. 

Well, we don’t have a hammock and if we did it would never be used.  I can only sit still to watch a few minutes of a good movie.  It takes me days to watch one.  Anyway, back to work!  So much to do.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, A Naturalist, and A Better Looking Monkey…


 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

Please click on my latest Youtube!  Hope to have another one today!

I am real excited about my new painting that I haven’t started yet!  The Word and Bird Man is going to sit for me!  I have done a number of paintings of my favorite model but they were all based on photos.  This is going to be great!  If you have ever wondered why artists paint themselves or family members there is a very logical reason.  Family members don’t charge a modeling fee.  There are other reasons as well but I think the lack of a modeling fee is number one – at least it is to me!

 Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

 

I have started setting up for a portrait in oils of Clyde.  Right now I am deciding on the spacing, value patterns, and lighting.  I had Clyde in there yesterday to work on the lighting.  After a while I told him I didn’t need him just yet.  Still have some decisions to make.  He suggested I get a monkey to sit – a better looking monkey.  No, he is the monkey, I mean man I want for the painting!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist and That is one Hot Dog!


 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

Please click on my latest Youtube!  

We have new neighbors and they have a very big pit bull that is, of course, chained right next to our fence.  It is there because one of our trees provides a lot of shade there.  When the shade moves all the way into our yard the dog digs a hole and gets in.  It is on a good chain and seems like a sweet dog.

Oh well, Clyde piled up a lot of things at the fence and hopefully the dog won’t be able to get in.

The neighbors are going to see if they can find a place on the side of their house where there is some shade to put the dog in.  Hasn’t happened yet.  We’ll see.

But it seems like our dog problems never end.  There are some new ones in another yard that bark and wake my husband up.  This one very nice neighbor seems to find dogs that bark relentlessly in a monotonous manner.  Hope they quiet down.
