Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, New Large Painting in the Works, and The Devil doesn’t Charge Rent…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my  latest Youtube! It has a copy of The Inflectionist magazine that has my painting on the cover!  Great article on me, too!

I am excited about the start of a new floral landscape that is based on a field near the Radford hospital!  The light is not good enough to continue work on my latest portrait but it is good enough for several layers on a new work.  I really ought to write a book and entitle it, “Looking for the Light”. 

My work is so complex that every shift in light makes such a difference in how it looks.  I hate to work on the last layer on a cloudy day.  My Daylight flourescent lights aren’t good enough to compensate for cloudy days. 

Well, time to prepare the canvas!

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

 

I like to watch court cases.  They are oftentimes hilarious.  The other day a woman was suing a land lord who was letting her board for one year for free due to some kind of situation between them. 

The judge was completely unsympathetic.  The woman resorted to claiming she had been through hell with this land lord.  Clyde’s quip was “Well, if she has been through hell, then the Devil doesn’t charge rent.”

Dragging Along…


 

Please click on my latest Youtube!  I am very excited about this new work in progress!

I am dragging along today.  The virus I have is not that bad.  No fever.  Just very tired with some congestion.  I am surprised that my dental hygienist is willing to see me tomorrow afternoon.  I called to see if she would rather I come when I am well but she said it was okay.  

 

I am still working away.  It takes a lot to get me down.  I am close to finishing my latest painting!  I will have it here soon!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Another Floral, and The Place to be…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am taking a break from Blue Ridge Parkway paintings and am back to my Kendall Expressions paintings.  I am very proud of these paintings.  I have always been and Expressionist at heart and all of my paintings have an expressive flare.  In these paintings I am letting my expressive side take over for exceptionally vibrant works!

 

I hope to have my latest one up soon!  Here is another floral favorite!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

I like to include as much humor as I can in my blog and most of it is supplied by The Word Man.  He cracks me up on a daily basis but sometimes I see something on Facebook that I think is so good I like to put it here. 

The other day there was a great joke that looks sexist at first.  I love it!

Women belong in the kitchen

Men belong in the kitchen

Everybody belongs in the kitchen

The kitchen has food.

It is definitely my favorite place, except when I have to cook or do dishes.  Oh well.  All great things have a price!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, More Florals, and I can’t Believe I said that…


 Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!  I was able to make one yesterday after all!  The guys changed their minds and went for a walk.

I am excited about getting to the third layer of another Blue Ridge Parkway autumn painting!  The second layer is just about dry.  Most of my paintings are done in three layers, some more than three.

 

Here are two more favorite florals!

 

 

sunnyflowers (1)

Shadows on Sunflowers  Original Oil Painting  has been Sold

Prints on Paper, Canvas, Metal, Pillows, !phone and galaxy phone cases Available at   KENDALL KESSLER ART

“Shadows on Sunflowers” is an intimate look at some sunflowers in a vase against a backdrop of shifting light. The swirling textures enliven the surface and the colors are intense. The brushwork is complicated and sensuous.

I have always been fascinated with the colors of light and shade. I remember reading somewhere that many people consider warm and cool colors together to be like the music of the spheres.

nortalbemarlebig (1)North Albemarle, McLean VA   Original 30″ x 40″ Oil Painting    $2425

Prints on Paper, Canvas, Metal, Pillows, !phone and galaxy phone cases Available at   KENDALL KESSLER ART

North Albemarle, McLean, VA is one of my series of garden paintings in McLean where I am from. This is a low-level impasto painting with a constant variation in color. The mood is cheerful and the surface is complex. The painting is in a silver-colored metal frame.  

 

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is very good about helping me with a stir fry meal I like to make.  I am not much of a cook but this is one meal I make that I really like!  I was extremely tired last night and when he asked me which pot I was going to use to par boil the broccoli and snow peas, I said the big round one. 

I cracked up but he was not amused.  I wonder if there are any other shaped pots.

Thursday is now Youtube Day!


 

I have decided to get back into making Youtubes.  Since I am an amateur pianist I was using my own music but I don’t have time for that so I am adding selections on Youtube.  There are so many beautiful pieces to choose from and I am looking forward to showing more and more of my work in that format!  Here is one of my older ones that I think turned out very well!

Anybody know what I am doing wrong?  In earlier posts I have copied the code and the Youtube shows up.  Why am I only getting the code now?

 

Up and Running or is it Sitting?


Lots to do on the computer but I will get out of this chair soon and work standing up.  If we move I hope we can set up our computer so we have to stand up.
