Need to practice some Line Dances for Saturday.  We performed this last Saturday and now we will be doing it again this week.  Yikes!  We did well .  The audience was great!    I have to travel to Pulaski for class but the class may be moving to Radford soon.  Oh yes.  That would be great!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I am still looking for my glasses.  I bought a chain and attached it to the pair I keep in the kitchen.  I keep those on top of the fridge.  It is against the law for them to be put anywhere else.  Well, I broke the law and was just about ready to give up when they showed up on my dresser.

I told Clyde. you know you are hopeless with glasses when you lose the one with the chain attached.  Maybe I should put them on in the morning and not take them off until bed time.  Yikes!  I hate reading glasses but I can’t do without them.

Just saw a cute joke about eye exams.  Santa Claus is in the chair.  The opthmalogist tells Santa he doesn’t care if he puts him on his naughty list, he is still going to dilate his eyes.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Nothing funny today.  Clyde is still having a lot of hip pain and I am discouraged about a number of things right now.  Maybe I can find something funny elsewhere before I get to a lot of work.

Found something funny regarding the medical profession which is appropriate since we are both trying to figure out what is the best approach for a hip remedy.  Doctor, physical therapy, massage therapy, yoga in a chair, etc.

Picture a guy in a dentist chair about to be worked on.  He asks the dentist if that is a Dentistry for Dummies on his shelf.

Love it!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has a Drip and Scraping off Paint…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Second day of the new year and there is a puddle in my studio.  Yikes!  A roof repair man came over and informed us that our roof shingles are 20 year shingles so we have been living on borrowed time.  Time to fork out the big bucks for a new roof.  Not the way I wanted to start 2017, but that’s life.  Cheers!  I am going to have to say that a bunch of times to myself.  Drip, drip, drip.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Painting can be such an aggravating experience.   What I want and what I get are not always the same thing.  Actually, as I told my students, you never get exactly what you want, but if you work hard you will get close.

I may have mentioned before something a teacher said to me that I think about a lot.

Scraping off paint is a good thing.  It means you are learning something.  The other day I asked Clyde what was the most important thing an artist learns when she scrapes paint off. He replied, not to bang your head against the wall?  No.  The very high cost of paint.

Here’s to a new year and hopefully some great sales.  I live to paint but I can’t take them with me and oil paint is very expensive.

I finished my latest Skyline painting. Now I am working on New York ones and I decided to upload this one in stages.  I think I am done but I may go into it one more time.  The second stage is not as complicated as the first so I may add more brushwork.  Anyway, here they are!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde goes to bed early due to his work schedule.  Last night I was very tired and on his side of the bed.  I said he was going to have to pick me up.  Just kidding, of course.  I don’t want to hurt his back.

He declined and I asked if he was going to, at least, give me a hand.

He clapped.

Argh!  I love his word play, but sometimes I think it would be nice to write a bunch of it on a baseball and slam bat it right out the window. Maybe someone would find it and like it or hate it.  If the finder liked it, Clyde’s crazy stuff would make their day.  If the finder hated it, he or she could pelt it on down the street.

Have a great day all you people that are not married to writers!

My leg is completely well after sort of falling off the stage at The Draper Mercantile and I am anxious to get to work on my latest oil painting of a marsh egret at Pawleys Island.  It is coming along.  Love oils!

Nothing like this beautiful medium that does not have to be put under glass.  The impasto surface is winding around in a delicate and expressive way that I work hard to get.  Hope to have it online soon!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Since I paint in oils I need a plastic bag at the end of a session to put the paper towels in that are covered in paint and mineral spirits.

Monday, Clyde was home when I was painting due to car problems and when I finished painting I asked him to get a plastic bag  for me so I wouldn’t get paint on the cabinet where they are located.

I told him I never plan ahead.

He said he was the evidence for that.

Ha ha.  Just get the bag.

Our Line Dancing Performance went well on Saturday until I stepped off the stage and didn’t notice the wood rim around it for cords.  I fell but another line dancer caught me.   Still, this is one time Line Dancing was not good for me.  My left leg hurt all yesterday.  It is getting better today.  Oh well, we had fun!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Last night I asked Clyde what he wanted for Christmas.  Here is how the conversation went.

What do you want?

Nothing.  I am too lazy to want something.

That doesn’t make any sense.

Lazy people don’t make sense, dollars either.

End of conversation.  He really is going to punnell me to death.  LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Over the years I have thought about that old saying that opposites attract and wondered how Clyde and I got together.  We are so much alike.  I finally realized that we are different in one way.  I am painfully shy and have to put on an act when I am around others so I can talk.  He is not the least bit shy.

I won’t go into all the ways that we are alike except one.  Even though I can organize stuff and he couldn’t organize a pair of shoe laces, we are complete slobs in the way we dress and handle food.

A match made in a pig pen!
