Yes!  I dodged another high costing medical procedure!  My doctor says the pulsing and constricted ear problem is due to the extreme changes in weather!  No ridiculously high MRI for me!  I will just keep on yawning and ignore the pulsing.

 

Check out my latest Suggestion painting!  I think the pears are doing a a dance, too!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde will have his knee operation on the sixteenth.  He can not take any form of aspirin until then and I am concerned that he will not be able to sleep.  He can take tylenol but I doubt that will help much.  It never helps me with any kind of pain. He says the pain is at its worst when he is lying down.

I told him that maybe he will have to try to sleep standing up like a horse and he said that we could glue him to the wall and see how that works out.  I don’t think glue on his skin is a good idea.

Maybe we can use wall paper paste and seal him in the way Lucy thought she sealed Ethel in on one of the I Love Lucy episodes.

 

Let’s hope Clyde does as well as the cat below.  Public domain kitty. I am no fool.  I am fighting image thieves all the time.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Happy with Stage Two and Short Eared Owls…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am very happy with the second stage of Lincoln. It may be the last stage.  I will spend some time tweaking it but it probably won’t change that much.  I have include both stages here and both stages are on my website for prints.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before many times, I am not that great with computers but I am determined to learn and improve my skills.  There are a number of things I can do to increase my audience for my artwork but when I try, I seem to go around in circles asking the computer and others how to do things that seem so simple.

Since Clyde has a computer job I ask him for advice.  Right now I am trying to improve my SEO.  When I asked him to help me with my SEO he said why do you need short eared owls?

Okay, what else would a bird watcher that does not have a website, is not on twitter, facebook, pinterest, etc. say?  I had that one coming.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is back to Portraits and The First Thing…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am taking a short break from my Skyline Beauty series to work on a portrait of Abraham Lincoln.  I like to make portraits of people I admire and hope to paint many more.  I am real pleased with the first stage of this painting!  It will be in color but the first black and white stage is captivating!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I said last time, we really are wrapped up in our computers these days but when the first thing you hear when you wake up is a sleep commercial character saying she needs an answer to her email before you wake up, you know things are getting out of hand!

My son turns on the TV in the morning and that line greeted me as I got out of bed.  Yikes!!!!

I told Clyde and he said it is probably in his spam folder and he ignored it.  Good cover!

I saw this joke somewhere online.  Sleep is for people without the internet.  Oh no!!!!!! Time to step away from the computer!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Back on the Cover and What the Heck is that?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I am going to try to modify the cover illustration for Fiddling at Midnight’s Farmhouse.  The publisher said the only way the painting can be cropped is without part of the moon.  I am hoping I can bring it down a little without disrupting the spacing that she has established.  I was hoping it would fit perfectly but it doesn’t.  She is going to have the entire painting in the book for one of the poems.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Sometimes I have a real life funny for Clyde.  One of my patrons that purchased two of my Skyline Beauty paintings saw Heart Cloud on Facebook and sent me this message.

What the heck is that?   We both had to laugh.  I certainly don’t mind getting comments like that from a patron!  I always appreciate honest reactions.

I told him he would have to get the book to see how the painting illustrates the poem.

My illustrations for Fiddling at Midnight’s Farm House are coming along.  I have the first stage of eleven and am working on number twelve today.  So far Train Spirits is Clyde’s favorite.  I am so glad the publisher loves the cover illustration.  I am excited about how it will look with the text.  Hope to hear from her soon.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Well, my main computer woes are over for now but my Instagram feed on my phone seems to be locked.  I have no idea what to do with it.

When our young friend was helping us with our computer he was appalled to learn our computer is five years old.  We updated it a few years ago but that doesn’t seem to matter much these days.

Clyde said one of these days if a gadget lasts six weeks it will be time to have a big party – a retirement party.

Sounds about right to me.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist Presents Stage Two of Beethoven Energy and Who is making supper tonight?


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

I finished the second stage of Beethoven Energy and am not sure whether there will be a third. I did not intend to give the portrait  a nebulous look but I like the way it has turned out.  I may just touch this one up and have two stages in my Stages of my Art Gallery.  

I may even paint another one with a completely different approach to contrast and color.  That is what I love about painting.  If I knew exactly what I was doing, I wouldn’t do it.

It would be boring.

Life with The Bird and Word Man – Clyde Kessler

Once in a while things show up in our carpet that should not show up there.  The other night Clyde found a rock in our bed room carpet.  I said I didn’t think we had rocks in the carpet. I think I may have some in my head.  He said one of them must have fallen out.  Wrong comment, dear.  Who is cooking supper tonight?

Please click on my Youtube!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Sunday went by so fast.  Too much to do.  I am working on adjusting items on my portfolio and it is taking a long time.  I didn’t realize I had so little text on many of my listings.  This will take a lot of time and I need to get away from the computer.  Oh well, too much to do is better than nothing to do!  Cheers!
