NORA KASTEN Artist Oil Painting "Morning Coffee" / THE JOURNEY, Day 13

"Morning Coffee"
© Nora Kasten, 2010
Oil painting on textured canvas  (8" x 8")

"Day 13 of The Journey and the first painting I've painted since June, just before Karl went to the hospital the first time.

Of course this painting was not suppose to look like Christmas but there it is.
I'm packing up here in Rockport, Maine and will go to Boothbay Harbor tomorrow, staying for five days. Susan Roux and I are trying to meet up together again there too.

It is GOOD to be alive today."

What a beautiful painting. I don't know you personally but I have been following your blog for several months. I just wanted to say that it is good to hear that your healing from your great loss has begun. Today is the 6th anniversary of the loss of my son to cancer. For the first time I am not crying on the anniversary date, but hey, the day is still young! :) Time does ease the pain. God Bless - Karla
