"By The Window" Oil Painting by Artist NORA KASTEN

"By The Window"
 Copyright © by Nora Kasten, 2010
Oil painting on gallery wrapped canvas  48 x 24 x 1.5 inches

 Left "Roses For Master Suite"

If you have been reading Don Hatfield's blog you will understand why I wanted to change this still life that I painted last year for our home.  My goal was to add sky, landscape and a figure to this ho-hum painting making myself a more well rounded painting artist. . . . . I'm pretty much well rounded already physically.  The figure didn't make it into the painting and hopefully that will happen in the next still life plus.  Today was the day for taking the painting on the left out of the closet where it's been for several months and work on it.  The plan was to make it better and though I do like it a little more, I'm also painfully aware of the errors.  For one thing having two light sources was not accomplished well but I've declared victory and the painting is going to hang on the wall in the master suite where I intended it to be all along.  The NORA KASTEN Website has many paintings of different  genre.

Wow such an interesting transformation! Thanks for sharing this. The two light sources never hit me until you mentioned it. I think you did a lovely job changing the character of this. You even managed to preserve your delicate blossoms. I would have messed myself into them for sure! I'm glad its going on your wall. It deserves to be seen!

Hi Nora,

This is just beautiful. I am only beginning to be aware of light sources. The gal above is right. This deserves to be seen.....Nardena

I understand this is off topic but I am just looking into initiating my own blog and was curious what all is needed to get
set up? I'm supposing having a website like yours would be expensive? I'm not very internet savvy so I'm not 100% sure. Any suggestions or advice would be greatly valued. Thank you
