Too much to do today so I am trying to get most of it done early.  One of the problems with oil paintings is that even with a cover on the palette the expensive paint is drying as I am typing so I have to get in there and get to work.  Acrylics dry almost as fast as you put it out on the palette so they have to be used up each session.  I would agree with acrylic painters that there are many advantages to that medium but oils are just so much richer in my opinion.  And they can be built up into a fascinating web of brushwork. 

Well, time to get off of my High Horse and get to the studio.  Right after I finish the laundry, scan some music, and do some dishes.  I am finally getting to the second stage of Pawleys Island Atmosphere now that my back is better.  I put the first stage up a few weeks ago and it is about to hit 2000 hits!  Definitely a keeper!  The painting is picture below and prints are available of this first stage. Busy, busy, busy!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Our church has a great Faith and Film night and so far I have supplied most of the films since I am a huge film buff.  I know of a lot of uplifting films that pertain to faith and last night we saw Return to Me which is one of my all time favorite films.  It is about regaining hope and happiness after a tragic loss.  I won’t give the plot  away but it centers around a zoologist who works hard to get a great habitat for her gorilla friend. 

The actress Bonnie Hunt and Director of the film is from a large Catholic family and she wanted to make a film about Catholics.  Most of the kids in the film are her relatives.  Anyway, it is a great romantic comedy, emphasis on comedy, and I highly recommend it.  Carroll O’Conner is one of the principal players. 

I don’t have a funny from Clyde today.  He said a few crazy things but I forgot to write them down so here is a free clip art funny.  Not sure why the word koalified is partially hidden.  The site did say free clip art.  I am very careful about these things.  Just wish I could get creeps to stop stealing my stuff.  Seems like all the ones I check into are out of range or not pursuable.

Argh!!!

I am so tired I am feeling like the Walking Dead lately.  Okay, you know you are an old person that does not watch much TV when you make a reference to something and not know what you are referring to.  I decided I had better look and now I know The Walking Dead is a TV program about Zombies.  I wouldn’t say I am a Zombie but now that my back is completely well I am working too hard at everything.  Sometimes I wonder why I am such a workaholic.  I don’t wonder long.  Got it from my Dad.  He didn’t drink at all.  He worked and so do I. 

I know of too many people that developed a bad alcohol problem so I am not about to take up drinking.  I might like to too much.   I love everything that I do.  I just wish I could turn into some sort of supergirl that helps the planet but still has time for everything else.  Long ago I traveled to Spain with my mother and was having some stomach problems.  She insisted I take some sort of medicine that had a tranquilizing effect on me.  I never felt better in my life!  Drugs are not the answer either. 

Just wish there were more hours in the day and I had more energy.  Shouldn’t complain, but we all do. 

Anyway, glad to sell a large framed print of Riverview Spring to a great Virginia Beach patron!  Check out all the print options below.  A terrific Richmond VA patron owns the original!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yoga has helped me very much and I would recommend it to anyone that would like to keep their body going.  I learned a few years ago that exercise is not enough.  Muscles seem to freeze with age. All the swiming, skating, and dancing is not enough.  Anyway, I go to class twice a week and also do small workouts at home.  I like what it does for me but I don’t like Yoga at all.  It is strenuous and time consuming. 

There is always a clock there and I try hard not to keep looking at it but I am anxious for the class to end.  

I told Clyde I am  always very glad to Namaste my butt right out the door when the class is over!

Google and I are becoming close companions as I work on my independent website which I think I have published.  I hit the publish button and I now have an address but, as usual, I am very confused with the site directions. I keep going back to Google and ask questions on how to work the site.  The help buttons on sites tend to confuse me and chats drive me crazy.  I have spent hours on those getting more and more confused.  I have 82 paintings on it right now but they are not in collections which is something I should have done when I started. 

I am going to take some time to set up the collections and then add more work.  I am one prolific artist so there is a lot to add.  I will add the Fine Art widget when I figure out how to do that. Now people will be able to go to the print collection on Fine Art America  but my independent site will have all of my available originals so people won’t have to wade through over 900 selections to find the paintings that are for sale. 

Now that my back is completely well I am going to work on the large painting of the marsh side of Pawleys Island that I started three weeks ago. The first stage that I uploaded for print sales has already gotten 1800 hits.It is the cover image for the  Youtube at the top.  It is not going to be easy.  I don’t know about other painters, but I have to be in practice with the medium just like I have to be in practice to play the piano well.  I would start a little one but I think I will just risk having to scrape expensive paint off this new large painting if it messes up. 

Art is so much more complicated then I think most people realize it is.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I think I have mentioned before that we have problems with barking dogs in our neighborhood that seem to really get into it when we are trying to sleep. One neighbor manages to get dogs that bark slowly over and over again.  Bark, rest, bark, rest, bark, rest,etc… 

We have decided that it is practicing for a band it is going to form.  The name should be Ruff Ruff and the Monotonous.

Dogs are great in many ways but I would love to have a dog free night.  I don’t sleep well as it is and I hate being awakened by a dog over and over again. 

A lot of people these days like to look at everything as good.  I hear people say the phrase, It’s all Good, all the time.  I don’t think they would say that if they slept by our window on a cool summer night.

Time to get some more tea so I can wake up.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

All of my life I thought I was definitely different.  High School certainly proved that.  I didn’t fit in at all and lived in my own world of art, music, and literature.  When I was a kid and definitely different I told people I knew I was crazy.  I didn’t think it was because I was an artist.  I used to argue with people and students that artists are not crazy. 

Van Gogh had a history of mental illness in his family and I think it is very likely he would have had problems regardless of what career he took up.  I gave up on that one and just agree with people that think artists are nuts.  Now that I am pretty old I have noticed some strange mental lapses. 

I told Clyde sometimes I think I am losing my mind and then I say to myself, did I ever have one? Oh well.  I may be on the wacky side and getting wackier by the minute but I am a well functioning nut with a lot of paintings to paint. 

Why is my number four paint brush on the shelf with the cookies?

Trying hard to get some things done today but Tuesdays are body maintenance day with Yoga in the morning and Line Dance in the evening.  Also, I needed to get a hair cut but I did manage to paint a little so who am I to complain?  Beautiful day that I got to look at from my studio and car.  Anxious for the hot weather.  Too cold to swim at the lake right now.  Looking forward to getting there as soon as the water and air warm up!

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

Yesterday I woke up with the intention of just greeting the ants as guests.  All of the food items they can get into are sitting in a chair in the living room.  What a place for a pantry!  According to Clyde they don’t usually climb furniture.  He has always been right about that in the past and so far every thing is fine.

When I entered the kitchen there weren’t any ants.  I couldn’t believe it.  Maybe the traps worked this time.  Yea!!!!    I almost put everything back but I thought I would wait and later on there were two walking along the counter and thumbing their noses at me.

Today there was a party walking around in circles.  A WordPress friend said to try Ajax.  I think I will put that on the grocery list.

Waiting for the paint to dry on my current commission.  Some artists work wet-in-wet but I prefer to add  layers to dry layers.  I think the thin to thick method of painting is the best. 

Most people don’t realize that most paintings are done in layers and oil paint layers can take quite a while to dry.  Well, I will work on some others while I wait. 

Acrylics dry practically as you brush them on.

Life with The Word and Bird Man – Clyde Kessler

I have a tendency to work so hard that I injure myself.  Now that I do Yoga every day it doesn’t happen anymore, hardly ever, well, once in a while.  I told Clyde I have a new take on the saying, “No rest for the weary”.  I say in my case, “No rest for the stupid” . 

I doubt I will ever wise up.
