Life with The Word and Bird Man

For various reasons we have been going to a lot of fast food joints lately.  I like fast food but prefer Chinese.  We go to those restaurants a lot, too.

One of the fast food restaurants has the motto that people should eat like they mean it.  I see that commercial all the time.

When we go there we always comment that we have to use a lot of napkins because the sandwiches are quite slippery.  It is hard to keep the condiments in the sandwich.

I came up  with a new slogan.  Eat like you want it to fall in your  lap!  Just joking around!  Great sandwiches!

Life with The Word and Bird Man

I am still working hard to keep my teeth clean so I won't be harpooned  by the hygienist.  I hate having exposed roots.  I am using my kit when we eat out and are not going home right away.

So far Clyde is being very patient.  I try to move fast but my teeth are so close together that it takes time to floss them.  Yesterday I may have over done it.  I have had floss stuck in my teeth before.  It eventually melts away.  This time I found long slivers of melted dental floss in my mouth at the end of the day!  Yuck!  I didn't think that would happen.


I am reminded of a cartoon with a guy that has holes at the top of his teeth.  The dentist's comment was maybe he was flossing a bit too hard.  LOL

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Work in Progress, and That's a big Duh!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist




I am on the third layer of my latest Kendall Expressions painting!  I have added a lot of linear accents and some color modifications.  I have signed it  but I am not sure if I want to change a few more things.  It is always hard to know when it is done.  I never get exactly what I want but I do get close!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Years ago someone mentioned to me that women often become more and more like their mothers as they age.  I was thinking about that the other day when I was brushing my teeth for the umpteenth  time.  I can't believe that I decided to ask Clyde what he thought about that saying as I flossed  my teeth.

My mother brushes her teeth four times a day and uses a different brush each time.  They she flosses and uses a water pick.  She says it takes her twenty minutes to do this due to her bridge work.  Of course, her determination to keep her teeth perfectly clean is also a reason for the duration of the event.

So I am standing in the kitchen with dental floss in my teeth asking Clyde is I was becoming more and more like my mother!  Well, that's a big duh!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, Work in Progress, and Dental Ninja...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist


 My latest Kendall Expression painting is coming along.  The picture below is the second layer.  I am working hard to keep a lot of visual energy in each stage!  I love the way tulip petals eventually curl and I am using that beautiful shape as a strong, repeating motiff in this work.

 Work in Progress

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Since my last awful dental cleaning I have decided to fight back!  I take good care of my teeth but now I am a teeth cleaning ninja!  I brush immediately after eating anything.  I use my water pick that I was worried about using due to the problem of cleaning it.

What do you use? A toothbrush to clean it?

Not only am I flossing after every meal, but I now have a kit in my purse with brush, toothpaste and floss.  I told Clyde we need to invest in dental floss stock since I am buying it all up.

If the dental hygienist says I have heavy tartar build up next time I will eat a dental instrument!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist, New Suggestion painting, and Another Mirror Joke...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist



I have started another Kendall Expressions painting.  I am using Acrylic paint this time and trying to be looser with the colors and forms.  That is always hard for me.  I am an Impressionist at heart and Impressionism is an intense, scientific approach to light and shade as found in nature. 

I am still working on my Suggestion Series at the same time.  Be sure to click on the gallery link on my website to check these folders out!  The link to my website is below in red. 

Here is  one of my latest Suggestion paintings.  Love the flowing motion and color contrast in this one!

 Pillow Puff is another sensuous, colorful painting from my series,
Suggestions. I am starting with an abstract expressionist surface and then looking for forms that appear in the paint. This time a pillow shape on the right showed up so I added others for a flowing still life. I am especially pleased with the strong blues and purples in this one.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

I have posted a lot of mirror jokes from the Word Man.  One of my favorites is the mirror wants to quit reflecting him and hopes it will come back in another life as a dog dish.

Now the mirror is threatening to call 911.  Mirror abuse. 

LOL!

Here is my latest Suggestion painting.  I am so pleased with the colors and soft surface of this one!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

 I have a few phobias.  I don't like to be in a high place unless the guard rail comes up to my neck.  I don't even like the walking track but I stay away from the rail.

Actually, I can't think of any other phobias except my new one.  I have never been afraid to go to the dentist until now.  I have exposed roots so if I don't get novacaine on the lowers I can't stand simple cleanings. 

I jokingly say I have dental phobia but I will go for my cleanings.  This last time the novacaine didn't work on the right side and that is where my worst exposed root is so I had to jump out of the chair and hit my head on the ceiling a few times.


Clyde said I should color code my teeth so the hygienist will know which ones to be very careful with.  Ha ha! What am I supposed to use?  Acrylic paint and poison myself?  Well, that would take care of the dental visit problems.  No me, no teeth cleanings.

LOL!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde likes Science fiction and enjoys various science fiction shows and movies.  We still watch Star Trek re-runs.  I mostly watch them for the fun comments that Clyde comes up with.  

He has a lot of the lines memorized and notices when one is missing so more commercials can be shown.  He says that problem is getting worse and worse.  He thinks one day this will be an entire Star Trek episode.

Beam me up Scottie!

Okay, I'm beamed up.
