Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!  I hope to have another one today or tomorrow!

I have worked very hard on my latest large Blue Ridge Parkway painting.  It really has been an arm wrestling experience but I am very close to the end now so I thought I would put it up here.  It will be a while longer before it is available for purchase or prints.

A Break in the Clouds is my best-selling painting on my website! 

A Break in the Clouds is a colorful view of Rock Castle Gorge which is near Rocky Knob on the Blue RIdge Parkway where my husband does much of his research on birds and butterflies. This painting has the most complex system of clouds of all of my landscapes. I am always fascinated with various atmospheric effects in this beautiful mountain region.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

My husband is always playing with words which is a lot of fun for me.  I love word play.  He definitely married his best audience.  I knew he wrote before we got married but I didn’t know how much fun his word play was until afterwards.  I have been either laughing or fascinated by his creativity ever since.

His latest one is on the human race.   I believe if people would take the study of History seriously then we wouldn’t keep repeating events that cause us harm.

Since we keep repeating errors Clyde has decided that the origin of the phrase human race was because we keep going around and around in circles.  I hope we never get to a finish line, but we certainly have been capable of the end of the world scenario for a long time.  Anyone that isn’t aware of that fact should brush up on their knowledge of History. 

It is my opinion that History is the most important subject in school.  I wish everyone agreed with that.  Oh well, some of Clyde’s word play is more thoughtful than funny.  I like it all!

We are having a heat wave!  After all of those days we had to drip water to keep the pipes from freezing, 45 degrees is certainly a heat wave!  I still don’t want to walk.  It is very windy and I have got to get back to swimming now that the roads are okay.

Hope everyone has a great week-end!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Monarch Paintings, and They would be in here with Us…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Lots of new Word Press friends so if you haven’t seen my portrait video, please do!

I am anxious to get to work on a still life.  The flowers aren’t going to last forever and I don’t want to go anywhere.  I just hope the guys are quiet to I can get some work done.  Glad I have an exhaust fan.  It covers up a multitude of noises.

 

Here is one of my few water media paintings.  I don’t have this one up anywhere but I will have it on Etsy this evening.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Radford is awaiting a huge snow storm and Clyde has a lot of bird seed out.   He has been griping about the squirrels.  They get a lot of the seed.  According to the Bird Man, squirrels get lazy in the winter and go on Bird Seed Welfare.

I asked him what the squirrels are supposed to do.  Don’t they just hide away with their nuts?  He said if that were true, they would be in here with us.

Droll, very droll.

Magenta Fall is a lovely Autumn scene on The Blue Ridge Parkway. In this vista the Fall colors are as exciting as the colors in the evening sky. A feast for the eyes! I live in the most beautiful place in the world!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde watches a lot of nature programs and oftentimes they are on when I am in the studio so I can hear them, too.   The other day I heard an announcer say that even though the grizzly bear was a long way off he was still glad to see one.

That struck me as an odd thing to say so I called out to Clyde that if I were in Grizzly country I would not want to see  one close up.  His answer was that he would prefer a satellite shot since he didn’t think they can jump that high.  Great exaggeration from the Word Man!

Clyde is a dedicated naturalist but, as I have mentioned before, he really doesn’t want to go anywhere where the wildlife is waiting for him with a knife and fork as soon as he gets off the bus. 

This isn’t entirely true as he has spent countless hours walking up and down the Blue Ridge mountains and had some close calls with black bears.  I guess hanging around grizzlies is one step too far!

Great Day to Paint!

Yesterday I had a lot to do as always but I wanted to try to catch up on my photography.  My artwork has to be photographed outside for prints to be available on my website.

 

It is very tricky work but I thought the light was okay so I got out there late in the afternoon.  Usually I only get a few good ones and have to re-take the others.  This time I got 100%!  Yea!!!!

 

I now have Mabry Mill on my website.  The original is available and prints as well!

rosetrio (1)Rose Trio  Original Oil Painting has been Sold

Rose Trio is an intense impasto oil painting with strong color contrast and complicated surface. The painting was applied in many layers to achieve a surface that continually changes throughout the work. The brushwork turns an everyday subject into a great visual experience.

Tall Blue Vase is one of my favorite floral paintings. The vase has a beautiful surface that works well with the assortment of flowers that catch the light in an arc.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned before I have always had to watch what I eat.  Unlike many people I talk to I was never able to eat what I wanted without gaining weight.  I continue to fight the Battle of the Bulge and don’t see an end in sight.

For Thanksgiving I brought a carrot cake to my mother-in-laws.  I always bring something but she prefers to cook most of the dinner.  Unfortunately the carrot cake wasn’t a big hit so it came home with us.  I asked my husband to take it to work with him so his office could enjoy it.  He forgot but said he would take it the next day.  It was still there and it was calling to me but cake is one thing I hardly ever eat because I eat too much of it.

I solved the problem.  I taped a note that said, “Take me with you”, on the container.  He leaves early in the morning and I was pleased to see it was gone! 

Now where are those chocolate chip cookies I made?
