NORA KASTEN Artist Oil Painting "Floral On Battenberg" / THE JOURNEY, Day 16


"Floral On Battenberg Lace"
Oil painting on linen  (36" x 24")  From the archives  SOLD

"Today is day 16 of The Journey and it was a very good day.
Susan Roux and I met at Kevin Mizner's home and art studio to paint . . . . I didn't paint but enjoyed the art conversations.  Susan and Kevin both have top quality paintings in the making.  I took some photos but couldn't get good shots.  See Susan's blog for more and better info.

Those of you who know my background, know how much I also love home and interior design.  Well, Kevin and Ellen Mizner's home was built in the 1880's and what a joy it was to be part of that scene today.  The house is filled with Kevin's beautiful artwork and period furnishings that depict earlier days of far less hustle and bussle.  The home is Soooooo inviting and you just want to spend time there.   They have a baby grand piano and I wish we could have stayed longer just to hear Kevin play.

Kevin's art studio was a chicken coop in times past but he has converted it into a wonderful working studio with a loft.
