Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is trying to slow down, and Laugh out Loud…

I did too much on Monday.  I will never learn.  When I really get going with everything I usually injure a muscle.  This time I have a sore muscle in my upper back.  I’m sure it is from too much computer clicking, typing, and painting. 

Oh well, it is getting better.  I hope I can paint today but I probably should take a day off.  I received quite a twinge right after typing the last sentence. 

Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday at Yoga we were in a new restorative position that was quite different from previous ones and, as always, the instructor was talking to us about relaxing and focusing on what is good in our lives and not to think about things that make us anxious. 

She mentioned a number of things that might have been making us anxious and then she said that we might be anxious about how long she was going to keep us in the pose.

I had to laugh out loud at that point because I was wondering when we would move on to another pose.  The others laughed a little, probably to be polite to me.

 

Oh well, when I told Clyde he said I do laugh easily.  He is right but I still think he comes up with hilarious quips.  He married his best audience. He didn’t have a funny to add to this situation.  Next time!

I actually painted and cleaned up part of the studio today!  A miracle in my own home!  Now, if I can just get all my computer stuff done, supper, dishes and so on I will stop calling this day a horrible Monday. 

I like to work but sometimes it is just ridiculous!  I hope I can get out for a walk before I get covered up again by the To Do List.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I can’t believe what I said to Clyde Saturday night.  I guess I was having quite a senior moment.  We always travel to Ferrum on Easter to visit Clyde’s family and have a great time!  Usually I cook supper when we get home but I thought it would be nice to just eat out.  I spend way too much time in front of the sink.

I asked Clyde if McDonalds would be open on Easter.  He looked at me with a shocked expression and said he didn’t think McDonalds was going to run off with the Easter Bunny.

I don’t know why I asked.  There are still some Holidays that everyone gets to take a break from working.  Easter certainly isn’t one of them.  I just Googled McDonalds breaks and SOME of them are closed for Christmas.  I guess it is hard for workers to get a break these days.

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I got a lot done today including the first stage of my new Skyline Beauty painting, Richmond Gold.  I am so pleased with this one that I will probably just tweak it and then present it as one stage rather than two.  Don’t know.  Will know when I get back to it.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Looking at a Cardinal and Old Chocolate…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

As usual I am working on this life sucking device but today there is a change in the room.  A poor female cardinal keeps knocking herself against the window.  Since I am married to the Bird Man I knew right away what was going on. She is trying to frighten off the bird she is seeing in the window so she can build a nest without competition. 

This happened yesterday afternoon and Clyde opened the window to change the angle of light so she wouldn’t see her reflection but I don’t think that will work today.  It is cloudy.  Oh well, I will consult The Bird Man when he gets home.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I love fancy candy in boxes.  I don’t eat a lot of it but once in a while those hand built chocolates are great!  The other day I bought a box and when I opened it the candy was as old as me.  There was white stuff  on all of the pieces.  I really wanted a fancy chocolate so I ate two and then regretted it.

Chocolate that old does not taste good.  It was so bad that I called Clyde and told him if I die from food poisoning he should sue the store where I got the chocolate.

As usual he had a smart alec remark.  He said probably all he would get  would be two pieces of good chocolate after he paid the lawyers thousands of dollars.  He would be pushing a broom until he was 102 to pay for the suit. 

Ha ha.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

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

I am really dragging today but I will get some work done on my latest painting.  I love my yoga class and my line dancing class but now they are both on Tuesday so I am quite tired on Wednesdays.  Also, more and more, I am being enticed by my piano. 

I just play because I like to play and sometimes I help out at church but I am feeling the need to try to compose something.  The reason I didn’t pursue music as I have pursued painting is because I had no idea on how to compose and as much as I like interpreting other artist’s work it wasn’t enough. 

I am not about to take any classes on music composition so I doubt it will be much, but I think I will give it a try.  I really do wish I could have a bunch of lives.  Longfellow was right.  Life it short, but art is long.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

One of my favorite expressions about wildlife is squirrels are so popular because they have a great hair do.

The other day Clyde and I were waiting for our son in our car when we noticed a squirrel with a very different hair do.  The fluffy tail was pressed against the entire body ending at it’s head.  It looked like it had been taped on.

Clyde said it was probably trying to impress a girl with a punk squirrel look.

Oh well, I type fast and maybe my  brain doesn’t always keep up.  That is a nice excuse. LOL!  There is a lot of information about the benefits of Line Dancing on our mental health so I will just keep on dancing!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday Clyde and I took our first walk of the season in beautiful Wildwood Park!  There is quite drop down from the path and he always walks next to it.  I always worry about things like that because I am scare of heights.  When I was a kid I spent a lot of time climbing trees and one time I had a very hard time getting down from one.  I have been nervous about heights ever since.

Clyde was so close to the edge that I told him to be careful.  He said not to worry.  If he fell they could name the rock he hit after him.  Droll.  Very droll.
