Glad to back to oils and I am very happy with the first stage of my latest Blue Ridge painting!   I love oil paint the best, but I get more uptight when I paint in this medium.  A lot of painters consider watercolors to be the most difficult painting medium.  I can’t agree.  I consider oils to be the most difficult, but I love it!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When Clyde and I take walks at Wildwood Park the towhees are always yelling “drink your tea” over and over again.  It is a pretty bird call but it can get monotonous.   The other day  I read in a blog that drinking tea actually fights the bacteria in our mouths which, of course, helps with tooth decay. 

When I told Clyde that, he had a whacko theory as to why towhees keep on telling us to drink our tea.  Maybe they once had teeth and are now telling everybody to drink their tea or else!  Now that’s a weird one, even for The Bird Man!

Rain, rain go away!  We are having a monsoon right now in Radford.  My Line Dance troupe had to cancel a performance last night.  I was looking forward to that one since it is at the old train station in Pulaski and there are vendors that I usually buy from while we are waiting to perform.  Oh well.  I think most of the vendors cancelled too.  We need the rain but we don’t need a weekly deluge.  Hope to see the sun soon!

 

I have decided to take my head out of the sand and interact more with other artists so here is a link to an interesting article on an artist that is really into brushwork like I am! Check out the great artwork of Winston Torr!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Sometimes it really is the little things that are super irritating.  I am trying to compose a piano piece just for fun.  I have been playing the piano since I was twelve and it never occurred to me to write music but I thought I would  give it a try.  I can’t believe how slow it is going.  I have always been good at reading music but now that I am trying to write it I can’t remember all the different symbols for the notes in the bass which is crazy, since I read them every day without any problem.

Also, my pencil keeps breaking and our electric sharpener is jammed and the little plastic one just keeps breaking the pencil.  One of these days I will finish my amateur attempt at composing and get it copyrighted.  I’m sure someone will want to steal it.  I would put LOL but Clyde thinks it is a nice piece of music so you never know. He has spent quite a bit of time studying music and has written a few pieces that I like.

I saw a cute pencil joke the other day.  Knock knock,  Who’s there?  A pencil.  A pencil who?  Never mind.  It’s pointless.

Well, my ipad has bit the dust.  The store clerk said you can’t replace the battery.  Once it is gone, that is the end of the ipad.  That is a sorry end for a device I paid a lot of money for and hardly ever used. 

I will try getting a different cable and see if that works but I will probably have to get a new ipad which I doubt I will do.  I will just use a laptop when I need something in my studio.  Time to get in there. 

It really is a dreary Monday, so I need to work so I can cheer up.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Well, the cat problem is almost over!  Two of our neighbors wanted a kitten and they got them before they went feral.  There is one left that they are trying to coax away from the mother.  According to Clyde, they are about the age when the mother will push them away so this works out right for the neighbors and the cats. 

Not sure what will become of the mother.  I called Animal Control but they have not responded yet.  Oh well.  The kittens are so adorable that I told Clyde I wished we could have a cat and Alan and I wouldn’t have allergic reactions and the cat would be no trouble and I wouldn’t be the one to take care of it. 

I was waiting for the “Careful what you wish for admonition”, but I got a weird Clyde response instead.  Watch out for what you wish for.   You may need a 42 page document that guarantees the wish won’t bite you! 

That sounds about right.  LOL!

Lots of work to do on my new pastel portrait of Alan and Sarah!  It will take a long time but I have been wanting to do one for a long time and I finally got a good photo of them to work from.

So I will put on my mask and get to it like Aunt Bea said to Otis on The Andy Griffith show when she was acting as his warden in their home!  Great show!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Not sure, but I think I have mentioned before that people have been telling me for decades that I have lost weight.  I am the same weight I was when I got married with the same measurements so I have often wondered why people are always saying that to me.  I guess I have withered with age.

Just wish they wouldn’t say it with such a big smile.  That implies I needed to lose weight which I don’t think is true.  According to the doctor’s chart my weight is exactly what it should be.  My BMI is on the low end of normal.

Now Clyde is another matter. He is trying to lose some weight to take the pressure off the knee that was injured.  He is losing about a pound a week which is fast enough.  Anyway, he recently received a comment on his weight loss that I have never heard before.  A friend said his clothes are growing on him.

Love it!

I am real excited about starting a soft pastel portrait!  It has been a long time since I worked in pastels.  They are a mess but I don’t have to clean brushes or a palette after each session which is great!  I started today without a mask but will put one on the next time.  That stuff gets in the air and practically asphyxiates me.  You have to really love Art to put up with all the problems.  I certainly do!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

As I have mentioned a number of times before, we are not at all happy with the digital TV takeover that forced us to get cable or never see PBS again.   We are not about to pay for cable for all three sets, so the TV in our bedroom has a mind of its own and sometimes has a signal but oftentimes does not have a signal and no stations come in.  We have been told various ridiculous things regarding the lack of signal.

My favorite is the amount of leaves on the trees affects the reception.  Lots of leaves right now so nothing comes in most of the time.  Clyde has another theory.  When a chicken clucks in China, our TV won’t come in.  Lots of clucking right now.

I contacted a company in China today that keeps on stealing my images and selling prints of them.  I had lawyers try to get compensation for me but they were not able to do anything about it in spite of the US office the company has.  I didn’t mention clucking chickens to them.  Just wish they would stop stealing my paintings.

Love the weather right now.  Not too cold or hot.  Just right.  We are in for a deluge this weekend so it is time to step away from the computer and get outside.  Clyde and I walk very slowly until his knee is better.  I hope I will get a good report when he gets home.  The progress varies.  Hope every one has a great weekend!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is still having trouble with his knee in spite of exercise and weights.  It will be a long time before he is better but you have to give him an “A” for effort!  His sense of humor is coming back and I am getting some goofy answers to my questions.

Yesterday I called him and opened with,

You know how we all change a lot as we age.

No, I am just an older monkey.

Well, I have changed a lot.  When I was young I wasn’t that interested in History and now I am fascinated by it.  I want to read all that whaling history in Moby Dick.  Where is it?

Who knows?

Got it from the library and now those parts of the book don’t seem to take up as much of the book as I thought they did.

There is a great Moby Dick funny on the internet.  Herman Melville is puzzled about a piece of paper that he is holding.  I white whale is staring at him and saying it is a restraining order, idiot.

I was determined today to have a good Wednesday.  I don’t know what it is about Wednesday’s, but things seem to just go wrong.  I am pleased to report this evening that I had a good Wednesday and hope the evening is good, too.

Lots to do but the glasses strand with little tiny fake pearls did not burst all over the kitchen floor and no rants over technology, though the rants can happen any day of the week.  I won’t get into all those other Wednesday irritations that usually occur.  Beautiful day!

Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde is using weights now to strengthen his knee.  I was real pleased to find an adjustable set so he can take it slow.  Still not getting much humor from him right now. I asked him if he had a funny for my blog and he said he was too pooped out, popped up, blowed up, and busted to come up with a joke.

Well, I guess that is a writer with a sore knee’s way of saying nothing right now.  Saw a great surgery joke online.  In the middle of an operation the doctor tells the nurse to go to Surgery.com and click on the Are you totally lost icon.  The patient hasn’t been put under yet.  YIKES!
