It is great to see Clyde getting around without the walker!  His knee still hurts but he is walking, mostly without assistance.  He will see the doctor Monday and hopefully go back to work on Tuesday or Wednesday.

It is nice having him around but I am getting tired of being a caretaker.  It really is hard to put a sock on someone.  I am getting the hang of it.  Oh well. It is a beautiful day and maybe I can get into the studio for a while.

Cheers!

Clyde is doing better each day but this confinement is getting on my nerves and I can’t find time to paint so I just wish I could be on one of these rides right now with the beach to stage left!

I am starting to catch up on some of my computer work as Clyde hobbles around the house.  His knee is getting better every day and he should be back to work next week.  That is a whole lot better than six weeks with no weight bearing on that leg!  So glad it was just a tear!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I both have advanced degrees but the other day we both decided we must have degrees in Stupidology.  While he was taking a shower in the bathroom with a shower/tub combo we were talking about how great it would be to have one of those showers that you walk in and sit down.

Then it occurred to me that we could have been using the bathroom in the bed room that just has a shower stall.  We couldn’t believe how stupid we had been.  For days he has been painfully lifting his leg over the bath tub when he could have been walking into the shower.

What a couple of Stupidologists!

It is always great to hear from patrons!  The couple that bought Eagle Fire sent me a picture of it in their Montana home.  I think they picked a perfect place for it and I am glad it has a good home.  I will miss that one a lot. It is my favorite painting from my Kendall Expressions series.  I guess it just had to fly the coop!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is starting to get his sense of humor back as the condition of his knee improves.  He is just taking tylenol now and the swelling is way down.  He is drinking lots of fluids which, of course, means lots of trips to the bathroom.

He said if he were looking for a job right now all he could put on the resume is able to go to the bathroom.  I don’t think there is a call for frequent bathroom visitors.  Unemployment sure would take a nose dive if there were jobs for that!

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!
