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.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Another Alan Painting, and Kind, Blind, and Out of my Mind…


 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

Please click on my latest Youtube!  

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!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Having a Great Day!


 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

Please click on my latest Youtube!  

My husband and I had a great anniversary today!  We had lunch out together and took a relaxing walk in Wildwood Park.  Such a lovely place, and, as usual, I was educated on a few things by my naturalist guy!  I like being married to such a knowledgeable man from Ferrum, VA.

I never really grew up so I ask lots of questions just like a kid and he can answer almost all of them.  The only thing I have ever stumped him on is certain cultivated flowers.  He knows all the wild ones and I get lectures all the time about invasive plant species that are causing problems but I have to look up some private garden flowers.

Unlike the hilarious guys on the Expert Panel on The Red Green Show, Clyde will say I don’t know.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Another lithograph, and Ding Dong the Queen is Gone…


 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

 

Please click on my latest Youtube!  

I have a number of lithographs that are not online so I am trying to catch up on my uploads.  All of my lithographs were done when I was getting my MFA.  I enjoyed lithography very much but the set up for that type of printing is more than I want to get into it. 

I live to paint and a lithography press costs as much as a car and I would really need another studio for all the different stages of the work. 

I am glad I still have a number of them and have hand colored some as well.  Here is the black and white version of Kitchen.

 Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Something very strange has happened this summer.  We started out with the biggest army of ants I have ever seen.  They would come in every day and sit around in a perfect circle around the poison drops I set out and just keep coming.  Some days there were just a few so I would put the drops out and another army would come in. 

There were so many that after a few days there were three perfect circles around the drops. I guess the ones in the back would just push the ones that were  closer away so they could get some.  It just didn’t seem that the drops were working so I quit putting them out. 

Well, the other day there weren’t any.  Yesterday, no ants.  Today, no ants.  I guess it just took a very long time to get to the queen so DING DONG THE QUEEN IS GONE!   Yea!

Blue Ridge Artist is Stepping Away from the Painting…


 

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

I have completed the third stage of my current painting and now it is for sale as well as all sorts of prints!  It is always hard to decide when a painting is done.  I always lose something and gain something with each layer so I am so glad I decided to preserve the layers. 

I may not have each layer but I can look at them online and maybe make a few more decisions on the work.  But, for now it is time to step away and let it live.  It is so easy to ruin a painting by expecting too much. 

Pierre Bonnard would work on three at a time and then turn them to the wall so he wouldn’t get too caught up in them. 

Anyway, here is the final painting!  Check it out!
