I am still fighting the Image Thieves and moths but I am excited about my next Youtube which I think will be a great one!  I have written a terrific script and will use a lot of my artwork in this one.  It will take a while before it will be ready to upload but I am working on it.  I may put up a short one soon but I think I want to concentrate on this one.

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

I don't have a funny from Clyde today.  I asked him yesterday if he had any quips but he said he was so busy with his heavy duty poetry and naturalist activities right now that it has taken the funny right out of him.

I know that won't last!

File:Edward Lear, Limerick 1.jpg

Here is the link to this great cartoon that certainly is an appropriate one for Clyde! The cartoon is in the public domain.  I don't rip people off and I wish they would stop ripping me off.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist has Two Enemies and Hot Air....

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

https://youtu.be/AQtN0Jq4f9w

I have two enemies right now - Image Thieves and Moths.  Spending a lot of time fighting both of them.  I have been cleaning out our shelves due to an infestation of moths.  Also finding more internet thieves that insist on stealing my work for print sales and free downloads.

I hate the war I am fighting with both enemies but the Image Thieves certainly take first place.

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

The next presidential election has me scared.  I have never seen such a strange race and I do worry about the future of this country.  I am not going to give out any names but I think Clyde is right.  He says one of the presidential  hopefuls has enough hot air to send us right off the edge.

I'm not real sure which edge he is referring to but I certainly agree with the hot air.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Pleased to sell another prints of Wildflower Current and A Few Cards Short...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

https://youtu.be/AQtN0Jq4f9w

I am very pleased to sell another print of one of my most popular paintings, Wildflower Current to a great New York patron! The original is still available and I hope to find a good home for it. 

Back to The Image Thieves.  I am still finding infringers and no end in sight.  The ones that lawyers can't do anything about really make me angry.  Again, please do not get prints of my work on any other site than Zazzle and Fine Art America.

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

I am always amazed at how glib Clyde is.  The other day a follower said he was a card.  When I mentioned that to him, he said he thought he was  several cards short of a full deck and has been that way since the shuffling began.

Love it!  He keeps me laughing!

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Fighting the Image Thieves and Tap Dancing...

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

 https://youtu.be/AQtN0Jq4f9w


I am spending more and more of my time fighting the image thieves.  I don't even have to do a reverse image search on Google.  I just put my name in Google and find sites that have stolen my work for sale as prints or free downloads.  Argh!

I have two cases pending right now.  I hope my lawyers can get the compensation that I deserve.

I only sell prints on Fine Art America and Zazzle.  If you see my work for sale on another site, please, please, do not buy them there.  I will not be compensated and it hurts my sales!

I honestly live to paint, but I am not a Sunday painter.  I am a trained artist with a Master of Fine Art in Painting and Printmaking.  You can read my profile for a partial list of my awards and accomplishments.  It is my job and it is an arduous one that takes up most of my time.

I don't work for free.

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is great about listening to my gripes so I don't mind telling him them.  I try not to but sometimes you just have to moan about irritations.

Sometimes he cuts me off with a quip.  I was about to lodge another computer gripe when he said he knew what it was.

The computer tap danced on the T.V. and they both ran off together.

That wasn't it.

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist is Overwhelmed with Ideas and Media Merger....

Blue Ridge Parkway Artist

Please click on my latest Youtube!

https://youtu.be/AQtN0Jq4f9w

I am excited about all the ideas for paintings I got at the shore and hope to begin one today.  Of course, I still want to work on skylines, expressive portraits of famous people, and a new family portrait.  Where is that Time Fairy?  Maybe she can add more hours to the day and clean up my studio with a wave of her wand!  Now that would be great!

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde is not on Facebook and he does not have a website but if you put his name in Google you will see page after page of listings regarding his publications and naturalist activities.  He doesn't want to be on social websites or start his own but he may have to soon.

He thinks that one day Facebook and Google will merge and it will be called Google Face.  I doubt that.

Please click on my latest Youtube!

https://youtu.be/AQtN0Jq4f9w

What a computer Monday!  One thing after the next.  My copy paste would only copy paste part of the text and then I had an awful time getting my keyboard going with new batteries.  As usual, it was a stupid think I didn't know. Clyde usually replaces batteries.  Anyway, I got to finish Green Meadow Mist so why am I complaining?

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

Not sure but I may have mentioned that my mother always said to drive defensively.  I think that was good advice but these days Clyde and I think the saying should be Drive to stay Alive! 

Our recent trip to the shore was so congested with traffic I was quite worried we would be in some sort of accident.  Who was the fool that raised the speed limit to 70?  If you think people should drive 70mph then the speed limit should be 50mph. 

I know I saw some driving at 90mph, zipping back and forth in the lanes.

I know I have mentioned this before but I really think I would like the bumper sticker that says, "I slow down for tail gators".  I would swear I had one car about an inch away from mine on the interstate.

Life with The Bird and Word Man - Clyde Kessler

We are having a great time at the beach!  Clyde rented a wonderful house that even has a high  porch where The Bird Man can have a great time.  Of course, there is an inside door at the top of a long stair case to the porch.  Yesterday, right before we went to dinner I told Clyde I locked the door in case someone pole vaulted up to the porch  and then entered the house and stole our bathing suits.

 

The look on his face was worth that silly quip!
