Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Fighting the Blahs and Stupid Question…

I am fighting the Monday blahs and trying to get a lot of things done.  I just found out that I don’t have any bubble wrap and I need to mail a painting out soon so time to get to the store.

I am getting some very irritating messages on Facebook that are probably from scammers.  Wouldn’t it be great if there was some kind of automatic scammer alarm system?  I realize that is a ridiculous idea but I am trying to think of something funny to cheer me up.

Oh well.  Yoga tonight and Line Dance tomorrow!  Yes!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Usually, on Saturday or Sunday we go out to a fast food place and I always get a chicken sandwich but I never get the fries.  For a number of reasons I don’t eat fried food and if you ever try one of those fries cold you know how bad they taste.  I’ll bet there are other things in them besides potato.

Sometimes I get the baked potato at Wendys.  Saturday, we went to Wendys and I just got the sandwich and when we got home I wished I had gotten the potato.  I was still hungry so I decided to boil a potato.

The potato was a little bigger than I wanted so I asked Clyde if he could eat the rest.  His answer was, do pigs oink?  Okay, stupid question. Let’ move on.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Catching on and Junk it…

The guys are out of the house for a while so it is very quiet and I am determined to get my computer work done so I can paint.  I spent thirty minutes with internet service people trying to get messenger back on Facebook.  I did it this time without any cussing or a desire to throw the computer out the window!

You really can teach old dogs new tricks but I still don’t want to learn how to create digital paintings.  Not for me.  Love my oil paint!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Well, I am starting off the New Year with our very old computer.  My printer has a mind of its own.  I printed out a photograph with no problem and then when I tried to print out a very short text document it just printed out a blank piece of paper.

Clyde said if it could talk, it would say that’s all for 2017.  Happy New Year!

Let’s see how happy it is when it gets junked.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Crossing Her Fingers and Squatters Rights…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Fourth day of the new year and we are working on an insurance claim for our wind damaged roof.  Our heating system was making a funny noise last night.  I hope we won’t be calling about that.  The noise happened a while back and I called for help and, of course, there was no noise when the repairman arrived, just the aggravation of paying him to come and check so this time I am waiting for it to actually break before I call.  Here’s hoping that does not happen.  The roof problem is enough!chrchsnowscenesmall-1

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Insurance is always a hit or miss thing as we all know.  We are in the process of trying to get our Homeowners Insurance to pay for the wind damage on our roof.  The roof needs to be replaced.  I hope we can get them to come through after all these years of paying them but I have a feeling they will claim it is just wear and tear over the years.

Clyde had a great comment on this situation.  They will probably claim they have proof we are squatters and don’t even own the home.  Love it!  Just a joke.  No offense to insurance agents.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has a Drip and Scraping off Paint…


Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

Second day of the new year and there is a puddle in my studio.  Yikes!  A roof repair man came over and informed us that our roof shingles are 20 year shingles so we have been living on borrowed time.  Time to fork out the big bucks for a new roof.  Not the way I wanted to start 2017, but that’s life.  Cheers!  I am going to have to say that a bunch of times to myself.  Drip, drip, drip.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Painting can be such an aggravating experience.   What I want and what I get are not always the same thing.  Actually, as I told my students, you never get exactly what you want, but if you work hard you will get close.

I may have mentioned before something a teacher said to me that I think about a lot.

Scraping off paint is a good thing.  It means you are learning something.  The other day I asked Clyde what was the most important thing an artist learns when she scrapes paint off. He replied, not to bang your head against the wall?  No.  The very high cost of paint.

Here’s to a new year and hopefully some great sales.  I live to paint but I can’t take them with me and oil paint is very expensive.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is not going to get it done and Won’t get beans….

Please click on my latest Youtube!

One more day to work on my end of the year resolution and I probably won’t make it.  I got the easy half done but going through my two huge file folders and making all those decisions on what we absolutely have to keep and what we can trash is not going to happen in 2016.  On well, I got closer to keeping my end of the year resolution than any New Years resolutions I have made in the past.  I think I will try this again at the end of 2017.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Clyde and I both love music. I play my piano every day and I am actually trying to write something.  He plays the guitar very well and has written some music, but, for some reason, he can’t sing.  He isn’t tone deaf, he just misses some of the notes.

In his own words, if he had to sing for his supper he wouldn’t get beans.

Lots to do today! I don’t make News Years Resolutions but I decided, just this once, to make an End of the Year resolution.  I am way behind in my paper work so I am trying to get that done before 2017.  I made Clyde a committee of one to handle one part of it that we need some kind of bookkeeping book for.  He is much better at buying things than I am.  Here’s to the 31st and may the clerical force be with us!

I like to publish my blog in the morning but the day didn’t just get away from me.  It rocketed right out the door and has probably landed in the middle of next week.  Anyway,  I started another Skyline Beauty painting, this time another New York one that I would have posted below if the day hadn’t flown the coop.  Oh well,  I will post it soon.  Have a great week-end!lightridgecopyright

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I like to wear decent clothes when I leave the house so I have to change a lot.  As soon as I get home I take off the jewelry and put on clothes that Good Will would probably hand back to me.

The other day as I was changing back into my house uniform Clyde was lying on the bed in his usual stained t-shirt and baggy pants that are either pjs or just look like pjs.

I told him that just because he wears his Sunday best around the house doesn’t mean I have to.

You can imagine the look he gave me.  Sometimes you don’t need pictures.
