So glad to sell a Canvas Print from Kendall Expressions and Look under the Hood...

Not very long ago I started a new folder entitled Kendall Expressions in my portfolio and am so pleased that I just sold a canvas print of Lion Explosion to a great patron In Zionsville, Indiana!  As I have said before my work has Impressionistic and Expressionistic components but in these works I am letting my expressive side take over and it is great to get a sale so soon after I uploaded these works.

I am also pleased that I am really getting into the acrylic medium in a way that is endearing me to a type of paint that is not real high on my lists of favorites.  The colors are great but the fast drying time and the way it adheres to the canvas has always bothered me.  Most of my new Kendall Expressions paintings are in acrylics and I am starting to figure out how to apply the paint in a way that says me!  I look forward to future paintings and am also considering some ideas for oil paintings as well.

My husband has come up with another funny for the blog.  I love to add humor here!  First, I have to explain that a Sensei is an oriental sage.

What did the Sensei say to the garage mechanic?  Look under the hood, greasehopper!

Working on a new Youtube and Ham for...

Hopefully tomorrow I will put up my eleventh Youtube on my new series, Kendall Expressions. I am enjoying working on paintings that are based on natural and manufactured things but these paintings are wonderful excursions into my subconscious.  My Dream Paintings folder on my websites are paintings based on paintings I see in my sleep.   In those work I tried to re-create paintings that I have already seen.  Kendall Expressions are creative leaps into my personal reactions to color and texture.  Please check them out!

 Having some difficult times lately so I can't think of much that is funny right now but I did see a slogan on PBS that made me laugh.  The Barter Theater in Abingdon Virginia is a great theater that I have been to.  It is a beautiful theater and the performance was great.  I didn't know until tonight that it was named Barter because during the Great Depression farmers were allowed to pay with farm products to see the plays.   So, of course, their slogan is Ham for Hamlet!  Love it!

I missed the first episode of the new season of The Mindy Project.  I hope my drawing was visible.  Be sure to check out the show and my drawing, Reaching Out!  I won't miss it next week.

My Favorite Kendall Expression so far and I Got Nothing...

Still working in acrylics and gaining more respect for the medium.  As I have said before, I haven't met the medium I don't like but acrylics is not high on the list.  It is great to just use water for the medium but I get bogged down in the mixing of the paint.  When I put a lot of different colors on my brush with oil paint, the colors come through in an exciting, vibrant way.  I don't mix acrylics nearly as much because the colors tend to dull. So why am I using acrylics now?  Oil paint dries so slowly and for these paintings I want to move faster. Anyway, I think Bear Beauty is my best so far in my new folder Kendall Expressions! Check it out!

Unless I can get some humor from my husband when he comes home, I got nothing.  Just can't think of anything funny right now.  I haven't even seen a good funny on Facebook so I can't get anything there.  On well!  Keep smiling and please check out my portfolio!

The Mindy Project's new season starts September 17th! James Franco guest stars on the first episode! Hope to see my drawing, Reaching Out, again!

Kendall Kessler Paintings in Art News and I couldn't hit them with a Diesel Truck...

I belong to a number of great groups on Fine Art America but I am especially pleased with all the features of my work on the online publication, Art News.  I have lost track of the number of paintings I have had on Nadine and Bob's publication and will continue to submit more.  They work hard to promote artists and we are all very thankful!

Still working away at uploading artwork to my portfolio.  Be sure to check out the 2011-2013 folder on my website.  Most of the works are new and I am pleased with how well they look on the site.  I am especially pleased with my recent paintings in the Kendall Expressions folder.  I just put up a new one and it is my favorite so far!

At church yesterday we were discussing the loss of a great cantor.  He and his family are moving away for a better job opportunity and they will be greatly missed.  The congregation is a small one so my husband and I were wondering who would take his place.  It certainly would not be him.

He said he couldn't hit notes with a diesel truck if they were lying flat in the middle of the road!

I don't think he will be asked to sing.

Looking forward to the new season of The Mindy Project September 17th!  Hope to see Reaching Out again and again in her office!

As always I have Limited Time Promotions on Fine Art America.  Don't miss out on 40% off large canvas prints of popular works!
