Clyde J Kell

Through renderings of botanical, ancient historical monuments, landscapes, seascapes, cityscapes, animals, and nature. Clyde attempts to capture a visual story of the moment. Through the presentation of the emotion and expression of his thoughts and feelings with the various artistic mediums. Clyde works in watercolor, acrylic, oil paint, and occasionally, pen and ink using a tight, illustrative hand.

This creative journey began during his youth. Life and adulthood interrupted a promising potential professional career in art. Clyde has said he has many fond memories of sketching, doodling, and the occasional painting for his two daughters when they were little. Now years later, Clyde is motivated by their love, and encouragement as beautiful young adults urging him to pursue a professional art career. Clyde says, “as I age in what some call the retirement years of life. My art career is young and vibrate and my artwork is a visualization of a life lived.” Clyde has lived a stressful life, with family separation, lack of employment, and near starvation at times.

Clyde’s work is an expression of the adventure, and sometimes the torture, we humans must endure. Clyde is fond of saying “my work is warm and fuzzy however living in this world is not always easy. His life is on display, not always beautiful and direct. However, Clyde, considers himself blessed for the love of his daughters requesting works of beauty. As a visual artist utilizing the various mediums and working in a representational style. Clyde’s creations express this passion and enjoyment of nostalgic radio, history, and world travel. Clyde is self-taught, the emphasis is not so much about rendering, but focused on the visualization of the emotion and feeling of the moment.

With his effective use of color, object placement, and arrangement, brush strokes, layers of paint, lines, shading, and all the elements of each piece. Clyde can capture a moment in time and life for the viewer. With his hands and artistic skills, Clyde can inspire and uplift the souls of others. Only a handful of family and friends had ever seen any of Clyde’s art before he began this artistic career.

As of today, Clyde’s artwork has been exhibited across the United States and Europe in brick and mortar gallery shows and online exhibitions and awarded excellence in art certificates. In a few short years, thousands upon thousands of art enthusiasts have come to enjoy his creations. Clyde says, “I am not out to change the world. However, if my artwork can put a twinkle in the eye and place a smile on the face of a stranger. Then I am a successful working professional artist.” What started years ago as a request from two little girls, daddy draw me something. Has blossomed into a delightful, joyful, and enduring legacy achievement. Clyde truly believes he is blessed with a divine gift in helping someone to take a break from their hurried troubled day. To give the world beauty is an awesome and humbling power indeed!
