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.

We are all glad to see the water go back to the New River!  We certainly got by with minimal flooding.  I am glad that I am all paid up on my Home Owners Insurance.  Funny thing.  Well, not that funny but definitely an age thing.  I accidentally paid it twice and when I was going over my statement I discovered the error. I realize that last statement is strange to a lot of people, if not most people. 

I know I can bank online but all this online stuff makes me nervous.  I just don’t think it is safe. I was rather surprised that the company cashed both checks.  I called about it and the local representative said my computer listing has a refund.  Why couldn’t they just send back one of the checks?  Anyway, I need to be more careful but I am glad it has been a very long time since I made that sort of error.  One time I put the amount for my credit card bill on the check for my phone bill.  Of course, they issued me a refund. 

I know I am not alone in saying this age thing is not fun.  I just keep on thinking of the lady in her nineties that performs on a balance beam!  Yes, we can keep going for a long time!

I am real pleased to sell some prints of the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere to a great Va patron!  This time a box of greeting cards was bought!  Don’t forget that my prints are on a number of household items, stationary, clothes, and kitchen and computer accessories!  All the options are at the right of the listing!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I look forward to watching Star Trek reruns with Clyde.  They are on the hour before he goes to bed and I can usually goad him into saying something I can use here.

If Star Trek has 400 crew members, how come we only see a few in the bridge and the captain and senior officers only take a few crewmen with red shirts that usually get killed.  Where are the others? 

They are below playing badminton. Most of them are complaining that this so-called five year mission isn’t getting them any lines for them to say on the show.

Love to watch Star Trek with you. 

You are just here writing your blog. 

No, you just wrote it.  Thanks!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist just got Rain and Did he say Shipwreck?

We waited for some torrential rains but it looks like it did not  happen here.  Roanoke had some severe flooding but we had some minor flooding by the New River and just got wet. The people on the coast did not have to evacuate their homes but North Carolina sure got pummeled.  Love the beach but definitely do not want to live there! 

I made a mistake in my last blog on the Specials.  They ended Thursday, not Friday. Senior moment.  I looked up a chart that compares Alzheimers symptoms with regular old age symptoms and so far I am still on the right side of the chart.  I am reading at night to try keep my mind together and I know playing the piano helps.  I really need to get back to reading Spanish novels.  You have to stay sharp to keep up a foreign language.  I have forgotten some words and some grammar so I had better get back to it before I can only say hola.  Our library has next to nothing in Spanish.  I guess I need to see what I can get on Interlibrary loan. 

Anyway, I am hanging in there and painting away! Here is the final stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Last time I wrote about the different times that Clyde and I go to bed due to our schedules.  He is in bed at 9 so he can get up at 4.  I stay up to 11:30 and get up at 7:30.  Funny thing.  Every night at 9 I have an overwhelming desire to go to sleep and then I start to wake up . 

I told Clyde that the reason my body wants to go to sleep at 9 is because we are soul mates.  He gagged and said we were more like a ship wreck without a ship. 

Ha ha! I love to goad him. Wait, did he really say our marriage is like a ship wreck?  Oh well. I asked for it. LOL!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is looking forward to lake time and Not like his signature…

I wanted to get back to my latest shore painting but I got sidetracked so I am going to get in there and at least clean off my palette so I can work tomorrow.  The trick is how to paint, get all my computer work done, and still get to the lake to swim before the afternoon showers.  I hope the rain will hold off so I can swim one more time before the lifeguards quit for the summer. 

People are allowed to swim without them but I would rather have them there.  I have only used my float once this summer and I am looking forward to spinning around in it one more time.  I am a responsible adult but in many ways I never grew up and I highly recommend staying a kid and never losing the desire to have the same fun we had when we were little! 

I have finished the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere!  Getting a lot of hits on this stage as well as the first stage!  Be sure to click on the link and see all the wall art prints and prints on just about anything to the right.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday I was adding some Skyline Beauty paintings to my new Independent website and updating them on my website connected to Fine Art America.  As I added them to my new site I also let the revised listings go to social media sites. 

A twitter friend saw one of my New York skyline paintings and thought it resembled Donald Trump’s signature.  That had never occurred to me so I looked up his signature and didn’t see the resemblance so I tweeted that I had not intended the painting to look like his signature and couldn’t see the resemblance myself. 

I didn’t think the friend that tweeted the comment meant any offense but she let me know she just thought the up and down motion of the brushwork looked like his signature.

Clyde said you should have asked the friend to buy it and then she could compare it up close with Trump’s signature.  What a shameless opportunist and I wish I had thought of that!  LOL!

Anyway, here is the painting and here is Trump’s signature.  What do you think?
