NORA KASTEN Artist Oil Painting "Am I Blue" / THE JOURNEY, Day 20

"Am I Blue"
© Nora Kasten
Oil painting on gallery wrapped canvas  (30" x 30")  From the archives

"Day 20 of The Journey.
"Das Rheingold"  Opera . . . Live from Lincoln Center was my first opera to see in simulcast and it was good.  I'm so glad I went and would see it again.  What a nice experience.

Tom Nicholas was in his gallery today and I got to have a short visit with him.  After tomorrow, Sunday, He closes this Rockport, MA gallery until next Spring.  He told me they have had this gallery for fifty consecutive years  . . . . his work certainly has maintained top quality all through the years.  

Before going into the concert hall to see the opera, I was stopped in my tracks as I caught sight of several beautiful paintings in a gallery window close by.  I went into the gallery which is owned by Line` and David Tutwiler and met Line`.  She is a lovely, lovely lady and it is one of her paintings that may be just the inspiration to set me painting again.  Many of you will know her husband, David, because his painting was awarded "Best Of Show" in this year's 2010 Hoosier Salon.

Will be leaving here in the morning and going to Vermont.  Sherrie McGraw's workshop starts on Monday, October 11.  Your many e-mails and comments too, are Sooooo good to read and I do feel the Love you're sending.  There aren't enough words for me to tell you how thankful that I am for each one of you.  Your messages truly lift me"

So glad to hear you may have found painting inspiration! I think by journey's end, many things will fall into place for you. You're filling yourself with doses of culture from all over. Opera, art, sights and people. I can't wait to hear about your workshop with Sherrie.

Safe travels today. The foliage will be wonderful!


This is gorgeous! Beautiful and warming to look at, it's elegance with a modern twist! Stunning!
Regards, Kristina
