NORA KASTEN Artist Oil Painting "Autumn In Vermont" / THE JOURNEY, Day 25


"Autumn In Vermont"
© Nora Kasten, 2010
Oil painting on linen  (12" x 16")  Available

"Day 25 of The Journey and another full day of painting.  No notes today because Sherrie didn't paint or lecture.  I finished and signed the painting above and now I'm almost done with the painting below.  I'll only have tomorrow morning to paint because we're going to the Sterling & Clark Museum tomorrow afternoon.

It's beautiful here but getting colder everyday here in Vermont.  Rain is forecast for tomorrow and Deb, who owns a gallery on Cape Cod left this evening instead of tomorrow night because a nor`easter is coming in. "

Oh Nora, you're coming alive on canvas! I can really feel you coming back in the second one.

Nora! I enjoy clicking on these paintings to get a close-up view of the brush strokes and paint masses. Your use of color and mood sing a very beautiful song.
How you can continue on your journey has given me hope to do the same. I am not eager to move too fast, as I'm not sure where to go. I don't want to leave my love behind. I question my every step.

Susan, I miss you and wish you could have been in Sherrie's workshop with me. She's a true professional and I really enjoyed watching her do the demos. She was OK with me painting on my own and doing what I wanted . . . . . that's good because I still don't know what I want.

Bill, I'm questioning my every step too and know how vulnerable I am right now. I'm not happy or unhappy. It feels like I'm just marking time until I'm led to do something positive and have no idea how long this will go on. Yes, I think that I can paint again but the joy has not returned. My prayer is to not go down into that pit of agony again. I believe getting better has started for me since I finally accepted that Karl is really gone and as much as I love and pine for him, he will not return. It seems that I have a choice to accept wholeheartedly what has happened is in God's perfect plan and everything will be good again . . . . never the same as I have known but good. The other choice is to hang on mentally to my departed Love, making each day a living hell instead of dwelling in peace.
I want to think and talk about the good times with my Beloved without crying but it rarely happens. I'm still telling him how much I love him. I don't know if he hears me but it brings me a comfort and peace.
