"Wilted Roses" oil painting by Artist Nora Kasten

"Wilted Roses
Copyright © by Nora Kasten, 2010
Oil painting on linen   (18"x14")

This is a detail of "Wilted Roses" above.

I know that I said a pastel was in the works but I got sidetracked.  A friend, Nardena Sullivan, brought these beautiful roses to me a week ago and they stayed fresh for six days.  This morning the few roses still on their stems were bent down and there was a pile of rose petals laying on the table beside them.  It was really a beautiful sight, begging to be painted.

I spend a wile admiring and start to analyze how you came to dose well textured surfaces and den ad those powerful colors, so well harmonized, that instead blinding my eyes became a feast of pleasure, which I found difficult to miss. Thank for shear
