I received some bad news a few days ago.  A great friend, teacher, and excellent artist found out she had cancer throughout her body and just had a few days to live. She and her wonderful husband had recently moved to Williamsburg to be near her son and were awaiting the birth of their first grand child.  Her daughter-in-law was due so a decision was made to induce labor so she could see the baby before she passed.  She was able to see the baby and say, “I’m a grandmother!”.  She passed yesterday evening and we will all miss her.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Nothing funny today.  Clyde and I are both saddened by the loss of Jeannie Albertson Fender.  We have been talking about her life and her husband Richard and the trip to Paris I took with her and two other friends a while back.   When we returned we took a short trip to my parent’s house in McLean, VA and had a nice time.  It is sad to think that out of that group that chatted and had refreshments, only two of us are left. 

My Dad came home early from the office to see us.  He already knew Patty but he had never met Jeannie.  He was such an outgoing gregarious guy that he gave them both a kiss on their cheeks.  Jeannie was so pleased she said, “I want another one!”.  Dad give her another one and then we had a great talk about Paris.  I went on a number of other trips and outings with Jeannie.  I am so sorry she is gone.

I have been dragging for the last few days.  It is so hard to lose a parent, especially a mother that was so supportive of what I do.  So many kids are discouraged from becoming artists due to the financial considerations but I am glad my mother always encouraged me and I know she honestly liked my work.  She was incapable of lying and if she did not like my work she would have said so in a polite way. 

She was also thrilled that I took up the piano and am now paid to play.  She said my grandmother that attended Peabody Conservatory would be so proud.  Artists and musicians tend to run in families.  I am glad I was born into one of those families. 

I have worked very hard at both my painting skill and my pianos skills but I do think some people are born with a natural artistic aptitude that has to be developed.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Last night Clyde had a muscle spasm in his leg that was quite painful.  I asked him if he wanted a massage.  No, a bullet.  I gave him a massage and some aspirin creme. He is better today. 

A bullet was not necessary.

Just a short blog before I head home to visit family for a funeral.  I am going to go off the grid for a few days as we mourn our wonderful mother.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Watching her Language and Keep it in Spirit Only…

I actually worked on a painting, did computer work, went to yoga class, went to Line Dance class, practiced the church piano for Sunday and fixed dinner.  House is a mess and I did a load of dishes before and after dinner.  I wonder why I am tired?  I wish I were on a  beach where the sun is shining. 

Still a lot to do. The trick is to do it without cussing.  I find it is hard to watch one’s language when haste makes waste and the kitchen demons are after me.  I know they are in there.  I am clumsy but some things fall without my help. 

LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Last night we were watching a PBS program on Foxes and at one point in the show the foxes were on a cliff and there were whales below. 

I love to look at whales!  I want to see a whale. 

I just look in a mirror. 

You lost thirty pounds and have kept it off for a year.  I can wrap my arms around you twice! 

Ok, I have been lazy about keeping up the blubber but in spirit I am still waddling around. 

Keep it in spirit only.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

 

Today I needed to make two prints and, as usual, my printer booped and beeped for such a long time.  All of our printers have been that way.  Sometimes they print something right when I turn it on and other times it boops and beeps.  I told Clyde I could write my memoirs and be done before I got a print off of this computer.  He says he will not write any memoirs.  It is all in his poetry. 

Oh well, the printer will never be on fire like the one below, not unless I light a match.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell More Beach Prints and Just out of Reach…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Please Check out My Story on Youtube!

I am very pleased to sell two more prints!  One of them was of my most popular beach photographs to a great South Carolina patron and the other one was of a very popular Pawleys Island painting to a great New Hampshire patron! Both of these prints were for Christmas ornaments that can only be bought on Zazzle. 

There are a lot of wall art prints and prints on household items and clothes on my Pixels site but, so far, no ornaments.  Be sure to check out New River Artist on Zazzle!  The link is below. 

Still working away on my latest commission and I am pleased with the progress.  Because of the drying time of each layer I don’t think I can have it ready for Christmas prints which would have been nice for the patron’s family but oils just can’t be rushed.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

My curmudgeon hubby is at it again.  There was another Fix -Your- Back- With -This -Device commercial on last night we had not seen before.  One of the buyers said after he used the device he took the first steps without a cane he had taken in a long time. 

Clyde said that was because there was a pay check for being on the commercial just out of reach.  He had to get there.

A little tequila would also help.

Thursdays are difficult.  Yoga in the morning and Dance Class in the afternoon.  I don’t really like Yoga but it sure likes me.  I do like Line Dancing and will be real glad when the new class starts in Radford so I don’t have to travel to Blacksburg.  I need to get the next file of my latest commission to the patron soon.  He was hoping I could finish the painting before Christmas, but that is unlikely due to the drying time of each layer.  Anyway, time to get this published and get to class. 

Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I am still having trouble with an itchy back.  It doesn’t matter how warm or cold the weather is there is one spot that itches all the time.  The dermatologist said the skin was dry there and that might be the problem.  Well, lotion doesn’t help.

I asked Clyde why does this one spot itch all the time?  He said it is because you can’t reach it and your back is laughing at you.  But I have a back scratcher and I rake it every night.  Yes, but you can’t carry that around with you all the time so your back has the last laugh. 

Argh!
