I am real pleased with my progress so far on the illustrations for Fiddler at Mid Night Farms House. I talked with the publisher a few days ago and was quite surprised at the number of illustrations she wants for the book which will be about 112-114 pages. So far, Clyde has 80 poems but he said he can add others if I can’t get enough illustrations done between now and October 1st.
I have finished the cover and will put it up soon but above is the first illustration of an expressive screech owl. I will probably modify it somewhat so I have it uploaded as Screech Stage One. I want to get to the first stage of a lot of illustrations so I can figure out how much time I have left to fine tune them.
Anyway, prints will be available of all stages!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler
Yesterday Clyde and I went to Claytor Lake for a short swim. The sky was cloudy and even though it wasn’t supposed to rain Clyde was concerned about a black cloud that was forming. He studies weather patterns and I ask him before I check the local report.
When we got there people were swimming. As soon as we plunked down our chairs everybody was called out of the water. We waited a while under the awning and, as usual, Clyde had a comment on most people’s reactions to a little water. He said you would think the devil was coming down on them.
Today I asked Clyde if we could go swimming. He said he read the clouds and they said put on a bathing suit, drive to the lake and see what happens. I dare you.
It is raining right now.
