We waited for some torrential rains but it looks like it did not  happen here.  Roanoke had some severe flooding but we had some minor flooding by the New River and just got wet. The people on the coast did not have to evacuate their homes but North Carolina sure got pummeled.  Love the beach but definitely do not want to live there! 

I made a mistake in my last blog on the Specials.  They ended Thursday, not Friday. Senior moment.  I looked up a chart that compares Alzheimers symptoms with regular old age symptoms and so far I am still on the right side of the chart.  I am reading at night to try keep my mind together and I know playing the piano helps.  I really need to get back to reading Spanish novels.  You have to stay sharp to keep up a foreign language.  I have forgotten some words and some grammar so I had better get back to it before I can only say hola.  Our library has next to nothing in Spanish.  I guess I need to see what I can get on Interlibrary loan. 

Anyway, I am hanging in there and painting away! Here is the final stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Last time I wrote about the different times that Clyde and I go to bed due to our schedules.  He is in bed at 9 so he can get up at 4.  I stay up to 11:30 and get up at 7:30.  Funny thing.  Every night at 9 I have an overwhelming desire to go to sleep and then I start to wake up . 

I told Clyde that the reason my body wants to go to sleep at 9 is because we are soul mates.  He gagged and said we were more like a ship wreck without a ship. 

Ha ha! I love to goad him. Wait, did he really say our marriage is like a ship wreck?  Oh well. I asked for it. LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Hoping the Hurricane will not be that bad and Trying to Sleep…

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

 

Reports of the coming storm keep changing and it is predicted to be the storm of a lifetime so we are all hunkered down and hoping our homes won’t be destroyed.  That huge tree right outside the window has me nervous.  I hope it does not come crashing down.  I have made it this far without a serious tragedy and I hope my good fortune continues. 

Someone in India is checking out one of my large paintings.  I hope he does purchase it but I will have to get someone to build a wooden crate for me.  I wish I could turn back time and make sure the guy that finished our carport knew my crates were not trash.  The lumber yard that built them for me closed. 

Oh well.  Artwork can present a lot of problems but they pale when the weather acts up.  We will see soon what this hurricane will do to us.  Hoping it is not as strong as predicted.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I used to go to bed at 10:00. I had such a hard time getting to sleep.  I don’t sleep well so I thought maybe I am one of those people that need to stay up late so I started to go to bed at 11:30.  I can’t stay up later since I have to get up at 7:30.  Clyde sleeps like a rock and goes right to sleep at 9:00 since he has to get up at 4:00.  I am so tired all the time and wake up several times at night thinking of crazy dreams, mostly dreams about traveling. 

I almost always wake up at 5:00 and 6:00.  Once in a while I can’t get back to sleep but most of the time I do and I am much more restful when Clyde wakes me up at 7:30.  Maybe one of these days when he is retired I will stay up to 1:00 and see if I sleep peacefully to 9:00 or 10:00.  I hate to miss the morning hours but I would like to sleep better.  Oh well, there are a lot more important things to worry about but I think this sign that is in the public domain is a good one for me.

Sometimes I think I should just take a break from all my work and just relax.  I used to despise shopping and still don’t like it but these days it is a break.  There are zillions of things I would do if I could talk myself out of computer work and artwork but I am driven to get my art out to people and that requires a lot of effort every day. 

I did get to the lake a few times this summer and my hubby went with me!  He is not much for swimming but birds and butterflies always show up  so he is happy where ever he goes.  He actually writes down data every single time he is out of the house.  Now, that is dedication! 

Anyway, I am hoping to make a lot of progress on my latest painting today.  It started out good but I had to take such a long break from it that it is presenting problems right now.  Live to paint, love to paint, but it can be a real pain in the you know where at times.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday Clyde was about to leave the house with food in his beard. 

You have food in your beard. 

That’s just my reserves. 

I thought your reserves were the pieces you drop on your chest when you lie down. 

Those are my auxiliary pieces. 

Considering how we eat and the clothes we wear I guess people could say we are uncouth. 

I lost my couth in my youth. 

Argh!  The Word Man strikes again.

You know this is going on the internet.

Yeah.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before I love movies! I get a lot of great ones from our library and netflix.  I can hardly stand to watch TV with all the commercials.  It usually takes me several days to watch one due to the fact that I have so much to do and am a workaholic.  Hard for me to sit still for the whole movie. 

Anyway, I highly recommend Permanent which is a very funny comedy about a young girl that ends up starting the school year with an awful permanent she can do nothing about. 

There is a lot more to the movie and one line will live with me forever!  I told it to Clyde and he agreed!  A lady in therapy gives her definition of family. 

A family is like a plant.  You water it and hope you didn’t get a weed.  Love it!

I wanted to get back to my latest shore painting but I got sidetracked so I am going to get in there and at least clean off my palette so I can work tomorrow.  The trick is how to paint, get all my computer work done, and still get to the lake to swim before the afternoon showers.  I hope the rain will hold off so I can swim one more time before the lifeguards quit for the summer. 

People are allowed to swim without them but I would rather have them there.  I have only used my float once this summer and I am looking forward to spinning around in it one more time.  I am a responsible adult but in many ways I never grew up and I highly recommend staying a kid and never losing the desire to have the same fun we had when we were little!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday I was adding some Skyline Beauty paintings to my new Independent website and updating them on my website connected to Fine Art America.  As I added them to my new site I also let the revised listings go to social media sites. 

A twitter friend saw one of my New York skyline paintings and thought it resembled Donald Trump’s signature.  That had never occurred to me so I looked up his signature and didn’t see the resemblance so I tweeted that I had not intended the painting to look like his signature and couldn’t see the resemblance myself. 

I didn’t think the friend that tweeted the comment meant any offense but she let me know she just thought the up and down motion of the brushwork looked like his signature.

Clyde said you should have asked the friend to buy it and then she could compare it up close with Trump’s signature.  What a shameless opportunist and I wish I had thought of that!  LOL!

Anyway, here is the painting and here is Trump’s signature.  What do you think?

Soon I will be finished with the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere which is pictured in the first video above.  It is coming along and it doesn’t seem to be such an arm wrestling event as usual.  It is great to get better and better at a medium and not encounter so much frustration.  Yes, it would be boring if there were no conflict but the ride to the end is not as bumpy as it used to be. 

I used to destroy ones that just didn’t work out.  I don’t do that anymore.  Some are better than others but they all have merit and the benefit of many decades of working at my own style.  I have accomplished a lot and my surfaces are complex and visually compelling. 

Pat that back and get back in the studio!  Love what I do but I don’t do it for free.  It is not easy.  It is artWORK!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When I look at the stars, which I don’t do often, I am astounded by the fact or theory that we are the only planet in the universe with life.  As more and more planets are discovered that may not be true at all. 

I asked Clyde if he thought there was intelligent life some where else.  I got the usual curmudgeon response. 

If there is, I hope they are smarter than us and don’t tear up their planet to make life easier or fight others more effectively or whatever all the things we have invented are supposed to do. 

My Dad was always so impressed with our technological advancements.  He said that pollution and climate change could be looked at as the details that needed to be taken care of.  I don’t see anyone taking care of these details.  I see people fighting tooth and nail to ignore these problems in the name of money. 

Clyde is not the only one that gets on his high horse.  Sometimes the crazy artist wants to chime in, too. 

Clyde said another planet’s pet rocks are probably laughing at us.

Ask a curmudgeon for an opinion and get a  curmudgeon response.

I am still working away on my Wix website.  Considering all the artwork I need to add to it, it will take a long time to complete, but I do want to get traffic there as soon as possible so I will have my WordPress header painting with the link to it on my website! Not sure why there is a add to cart button.  I have not added the online store option yet so patrons will have to contact me right now. 

Eventually I will have the Fine Art widget on it for people that want prints. For now  I will include that link under the painting, too!  Please check out what I have there so far!  Quite a lot to see.  I am hoping to paint today but it is so dark out that it will be difficult to see the warm colors.  Light is everything.  My Daylight Florescent lights can only compensate for so much. 

As I have mentioned before, the main reason I do not paint plein air is because of the extreme change in light from outdoors to indoors and my work is not going to be hanging outdoors somewhere. It is very important to me that the colors are accurate in home light and office light.  Hope to get more light soon.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I can’t believe the number of mosquito bites I have had this season.  I am not outdoors much and all our windows have very secure screens but I keep getting more welts.  They seem to prefer me over Clyde and I probably scratch them while I am sleeping because they turn into massive lumps.  Recently I was bit in the same place on each thigh. 

I told Clyde that I think a couple of sisters decided to have a competition to see who could get the most.  One of them said to the other, “You take this thigh and I’ll get the other one and may the best blood sucker win.”  The one that got the right thigh won by a landslide, body slide, leg slide – whatever. 

Anyway, I don’t think a Hobbit like me with secure screens should be getting this type of bite action.  They must sneak in on our clothes when we come in the door.  I hate mosquitoes.  They really do suck. I decided to look up whether or not we would be better off without them and here is what I found. I am not surprised that we should not try to eradicate them.  Everything works together in nature like an airplane in the air.  We should not try to get rid of any bolts or that airplane is going to crash.

Should we try to eradicate mosquitoes?

No, because not all are bad. Mosquitoes are a fly in the family Culicidae, and there are over 3500 species of them! The females lay eggs usually in still water, anything from a shallow pond to a flowerpot or birdbath or puddle. The larvae live in the water, eating microbes and small particles or algae. They pupate in the water, and the adult mosquito eventually emerges from the water surface and flies off.

What do adult mosquitoes eat? Most are vegetarian. They drink flower nectar, plant sap, and fruit juices, and never drink blood. Killing these species is not necessary: in fact, it’s counterproductive.

The more than 90 species of one such harmless genus, Toxorhynchites, also known as the “elephant mosquito” because of their great size, are an ally to our cause: their larvae eat other mosquito larvae! Since they are helpful, we should make sure any strategies we use to kill bad mosquitoes will leave these gentle giants alone.
