I am real pleased to get back to some Suggestions paintings!  They are quite a trip.  In these paintings I paint in an Abstract Expressionist manner and then look for some forms to pull out.  This time it looked like balloons swirling around.  Here is the first stage which may be the last stage.  I don't have it up for print sales due to some problems with the site that sells my prints.  I keep getting an error message when I try to add something to my portfolio.  I hope they fix that soon.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

 

Time once again to add a post to the Ant Chronicles.  I have a new strategy for getting rid of them.  I am cleaning their paths over and over again with ammonia hoping that will asphyxiate them or at least make them think twice about congregating in our kitchen.  The ant traps don't work.  It sure takes a while to find all their meeting places.

This time they set up a motel in an enclosed plastic mouse trap that did not have any bait.  It is funny how you see one or two and then zillions.

Clyde says they probably have cell phones they use as soon as they see a crumb.  Last year he said they get on a horn for a shout out but he thinks they have updated their methods by now.

Got to get back to work and I don't mean computer work.  I get real uptight when I can't get to a painting.  I have a gessoed board and I hope I can get the first layer of a wildlife painting started tomorrow.  On our trip to Wintergreen I saw the first and only bear I have ever seen.  Glad I was in a car riding away.  I prefer wildlife from  a distance, on the TV, or in a painting.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

There are a lot of aggravating commercials on TV right now.  A local lawyer is telling us over and over again to support our great service people such as fireman, policemen, etc. 

My curmudgeon husband added, and we will be right behind them to sue you if they need us. 

Another lawyer joke.  The world is full of them!

Glad to be back home after a grueling trip to Wintergreen resort near Charlottesville, Va.  We had a great time  but the trip there was an awful experience in horrible fog and the trip back was behind about 500 bicyclists on some sort of race.  Clyde had to crawl and get around a few at a time for what seemed like forever!  When we finally got to the Blue Ridge Parkway so we wouldn't  have to travel on I-81, it was closed.  We had to go through Roanoke and get on an extremely congested I-81. 

Like I said.  Glad to be home.

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Wow!  We just got back from a Naturalist Symposium that Clyde was a part of.  It rained and rained and rained.  The wifi was so miserable that my i-pad came very close to being a frisbee.  There was so much water I'll bet I could have skimmed it like a rock over the sidewalks.  I don't know why I think I can get any internet stuff done at resorts.  I finally gave up and declared myself off the grid and had a great time at several lectures and the pool!  Great hot tubs! Clyde did a terrific job as always!  If you ever want to see all the naturalist stuff he does just put his name in Google!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Like my dear father I am a workaholic.  I don't know if that is hereditary or if there is something in our chemical makeup that causes me and caused him to work all the time.  One time when he had to be in the hospital he was given a tranquilizer and could not believe how great he felt.  My mother slipped one to me on a trip and I have never felt better.  I don't want to take something to slow me down.  I like working but yesterday I decided I should cut back and not do as much as I usually do.

I called Clyde to tell him I was sort of chilling - taking a mini-vacation.

He asked if someone came to door and gave me a Speeding Ticket.

Ha ha.

Yes, Sheldon.  That was another sarcastic ha ha.

I am very excited about launching my own completely independent website!  Right now my website is connected to the website that sells prints of my work.  My new website will only have originals for sale.  Considering how on all the pages that I offer originals for sale, there are a lot of sales, looking through my current website for available originals  is quite time consuming.  Now patrons can find originals all in one place! 

It will be a while before I publish it but it will happen!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Low on funnies lately.  I sidled up to Clyde and asked if he had a funny for my blog. 

No. 

But you usually have all sorts of quips pouring out of your mouth. 

Well, I am not equipped to drop quips out of my mouth right now. 

How can I get them going again? 

Pay me. 

I don't have any money. 

Then I don't have any quips. 

Shoot. I guess the birds and the butterflies have all his attention right now.

Chilling today with my family on a great Mother's Day!  I have done some work on the net but for me it has been a day off.  Too much time in front of a computer makes an artist a grouch with a paint brush.  Hot but beautiful outside!  Glad we got out!  Cheers!

Life with The Word and Bird Man - Clyde Kessler

Clyde gets really aggravated with shoe laces these days.  For some reason the ones he has been getting  like to untie themselves without a finger of encouragement from him.  He will be walking along and presto change-o the shoes are untied.  We have decided that they are that way on purpose so people won't have to work hard to untie them.  Since they come apart on their own Clyde has decided they must treat the laces  with slug slime and the ones he buys have too much of it.
