"Anniversary Roses" by Nora Kasten

"Anniversary Roses"   Oil on Linen    (40"x30")

This 25th anniversary bouquet is very special to me.  My husband, Karl is quite ill with heart and lung disabilities.  For the last five months he has been homebound, on oxygen 24/7, walking with a walker and it's very hard for him to speak because of his shortness of breath.  Somehow he managed to get his message across to a local florist for this huge bouquet for me.  Our good friends and neighbors, the Gaskins, brought over the champagne and beautiful card.  Karl has not been in physical pain through his ordeal but is very, very weak.  Life is most precious and we're thankful for every hour.
Now, you probably can understand why I'm painting non-stop for days on end.
