NORA KASTEN Artist Oil Painting "A Jar Of Roses"

"A Jar of Roses"
© Nora Kasten
Oil painting on textured canvas  (20" x 12" x 2") From the archives

"My son, Jett, is out of the hospital and back home in his Tarpon Springs apartment today.  My hope and prayer is that he will do well living on his own with the help of his friends and neighbors.  It's a complicated situation that I can't share but I want to thank everyone again for their prayers and concern for Jett.  He was a breath away from losing his left foot and we're giving thanks galore this evening that he was able to come back home with both feet.  Hopefully,    he will take good care of himself and all future reports will be good.  

Do you suppose that this blog will ever get back to just the arts?  I sure hope that it does but while still crying buckets of tears almost daily I've been knitting too.  The yellow scarf below was knitted from the beautiful cotton yarn that Christy Verity sent to me.  It's 72 inches long and 4 inches wide but I still need to put the fringe on it.

Your flowers are beautiful. I think you have a special gift for painting flowers. And the scarf is lovely. You sure are patient. Very happy about your good news, Helen

So happy to hear Jett is back home. Hopefully the recovery will continue smoothly. Beautiful scarf. Do you need those in Florida?

Who ever said you can't paint while crying? It might be therapeutic... Grab some orange and purple and just start throwing it around. (on canvas that is.) Can't wait 'till you surprise me with something other than the archives, though they are very lovely nonetheless.

Mornin' Nora, you have such a gift for painting flowers. And, knitting too. Love the color and pattern. Fringe will add that omph! So glad Jett is doing well. The tears can be therapeutic if they are not making you ill. You will find your ah! ha! moment soon I am sure and those tears will have served their purpose. You are in my thoughts and prayers.

Wonderful painting Nora! That looks like a nice pattern in the scarf,(I know nothing about knitting)
I'm glad to hear Jett is out of the hospital. I hope his recovery gives him strength to be well.
I Hope you are doing well too!
