Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Watching out for Scammers and Don’t Blow it Up…

Selling artwork on line can be a very tricky thing. There are a lot of scammers out there and I have known of artists that were tricked out of a lot of money.  I am very careful and haven’t fallen for any schemes so far.  One of the most popular one is the shipping scam.  The fake buyer sends a check for an amount that includes a very high shipping fee. The artist is requested to cash the check and give the shipper the several thousand dollar fee to the carrier.  Of course, the check is no good and the artist is out a lot of money and the artwork. 

Right now a guy from another country is looking into buying one of my paintings.  He seems legitimate but, as always, I make sure the check is good and the shipping fee is up to him.  I didn’t start painting yesterday.  Been at this a long time. That reminds me.  I need to check my credit score.  I have not done that in a while. 

The internet is great in many ways but it is also very dangerous.  Crooks love it, too.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When I want to get a quip from Clyde I have learned the best place to get them is when he is watching TV. He usually has some fun comments for shows and commercials.  I just have to remember to write them down.  I always think I won’t forget them but I do. 

Last night we were watching a Magician’s show and he was flipping the channels all over the TV because of the ridiculous number of commercial breaks. He said the real magic is the commercials.  They make the magicians disappear. 

That’s for sure!  One commercial that kept appearing over and over again was an advertisement for a beach vacation that has a song we have heard so many times Clyde said he liked looking at the pictures of the beach but the song made him want to blow up the TV.  It is a nerve wracking ditty. 

Love the beach but this commercial has got to go!

Soon I will be finished with the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere which is pictured in the first video above.  It is coming along and it doesn’t seem to be such an arm wrestling event as usual.  It is great to get better and better at a medium and not encounter so much frustration.  Yes, it would be boring if there were no conflict but the ride to the end is not as bumpy as it used to be. 

I used to destroy ones that just didn’t work out.  I don’t do that anymore.  Some are better than others but they all have merit and the benefit of many decades of working at my own style.  I have accomplished a lot and my surfaces are complex and visually compelling. 

Pat that back and get back in the studio!  Love what I do but I don’t do it for free.  It is not easy.  It is artWORK!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

When I look at the stars, which I don’t do often, I am astounded by the fact or theory that we are the only planet in the universe with life.  As more and more planets are discovered that may not be true at all. 

I asked Clyde if he thought there was intelligent life some where else.  I got the usual curmudgeon response. 

If there is, I hope they are smarter than us and don’t tear up their planet to make life easier or fight others more effectively or whatever all the things we have invented are supposed to do. 

My Dad was always so impressed with our technological advancements.  He said that pollution and climate change could be looked at as the details that needed to be taken care of.  I don’t see anyone taking care of these details.  I see people fighting tooth and nail to ignore these problems in the name of money. 

Clyde is not the only one that gets on his high horse.  Sometimes the crazy artist wants to chime in, too. 

Clyde said another planet’s pet rocks are probably laughing at us.

Ask a curmudgeon for an opinion and get a  curmudgeon response.

I am still working away on my Wix website.  Considering all the artwork I need to add to it, it will take a long time to complete, but I do want to get traffic there as soon as possible so I will have my WordPress header painting with the link to it on my website! Not sure why there is a add to cart button.  I have not added the online store option yet so patrons will have to contact me right now. 

Eventually I will have the Fine Art widget on it for people that want prints. For now  I will include that link under the painting, too!  Please check out what I have there so far!  Quite a lot to see.  I am hoping to paint today but it is so dark out that it will be difficult to see the warm colors.  Light is everything.  My Daylight Florescent lights can only compensate for so much. 

As I have mentioned before, the main reason I do not paint plein air is because of the extreme change in light from outdoors to indoors and my work is not going to be hanging outdoors somewhere. It is very important to me that the colors are accurate in home light and office light.  Hope to get more light soon.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I can’t believe the number of mosquito bites I have had this season.  I am not outdoors much and all our windows have very secure screens but I keep getting more welts.  They seem to prefer me over Clyde and I probably scratch them while I am sleeping because they turn into massive lumps.  Recently I was bit in the same place on each thigh. 

I told Clyde that I think a couple of sisters decided to have a competition to see who could get the most.  One of them said to the other, “You take this thigh and I’ll get the other one and may the best blood sucker win.”  The one that got the right thigh won by a landslide, body slide, leg slide – whatever. 

Anyway, I don’t think a Hobbit like me with secure screens should be getting this type of bite action.  They must sneak in on our clothes when we come in the door.  I hate mosquitoes.  They really do suck. I decided to look up whether or not we would be better off without them and here is what I found. I am not surprised that we should not try to eradicate them.  Everything works together in nature like an airplane in the air.  We should not try to get rid of any bolts or that airplane is going to crash.

Should we try to eradicate mosquitoes?

No, because not all are bad. Mosquitoes are a fly in the family Culicidae, and there are over 3500 species of them! The females lay eggs usually in still water, anything from a shallow pond to a flowerpot or birdbath or puddle. The larvae live in the water, eating microbes and small particles or algae. They pupate in the water, and the adult mosquito eventually emerges from the water surface and flies off.

What do adult mosquitoes eat? Most are vegetarian. They drink flower nectar, plant sap, and fruit juices, and never drink blood. Killing these species is not necessary: in fact, it’s counterproductive.

The more than 90 species of one such harmless genus, Toxorhynchites, also known as the “elephant mosquito” because of their great size, are an ally to our cause: their larvae eat other mosquito larvae! Since they are helpful, we should make sure any strategies we use to kill bad mosquitoes will leave these gentle giants alone.

My To Do List is so long today I want to hang it up somewhere and shoot it over and over again until it looks like swiss cheese.  Oh well.  I have already done a lot of work and there is plenty more to do. 

To quote the Irish restaurant owner that Carol O’Conner played in one of my favorite movies, Return to Me – I am blessed with work.  Now that is the attitude to have, not pot shots at the list. 

Anyway, pleased to sell a print of Richmond Ripples to a great Massachusetts patron!  Check it out below and click on the link to see all the prints option to the right.  Original is still available!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Wow!  I think the objects in our lives are becoming way too automated. What was the problem with rolling down a car window?

Why do people have riding lawn mowers when they could get some exercise pushing a mower?

Now there is a cup that stirs the drink for you.  When I mentioned that to Clyde he asked if the cup takes the temperature of the liquid, too?  Actually, there are cups that do that.

Well, I have said it before and I will say it again.  If they computerize bathrooms we are going to need an out house.
