NORA KASTEN Artist Oil Painting "One For Lunch"

"One For Lunch"
© Nora Kasten
Oil painting on linen  (16" x 16") From the archives  SOLD

"Yesterday marked three months since Karl is gone.

"One For Lunch" pretty much says it all for today but this work was painted in 1991 when life was wonderful.  The crossword puzzle is something I've stopped doing since Karl died.  They make me sad now and I guess it's because we enjoyed doing them together for so many years.  The last three years Karl was doing the Sudoku number puzzle too but I never started."


PS:  I just viewed a short video on Don Hatfield's site that I know you all will enjoy.

Your painting is lovely, Nora. I hope you are getting out in the company of other artists, friends, relatives. I am just an email away if you should ever want to chat.

Nora Kasten said...

Thanks, Carol, but when I talk the tears just take over. I know everything will be ok but it isn't yet. . . . Nora

Hi Nora, Yes Don's video is really beautiful. I hope you're ok. I know this is a very difficult time for you. I'm sending you smiles and hugs (even if you don't want them...). Thinking of you warmly.

Things are ever changeing Nora, however you will alway be wonderful.
Family and friends, and a community of artists all applaud you. You demonstrate the strength and fragility of life.
You bring much to the table, and I think today I will have soup!

Susan, Thank you and I DO want YOUR hugs, always . . . Nora

Bill, Thank you. Have you found thankfulness and gratitude to be a big part of healing through your own sorrow. I think maybe so. . . . . Nora

Yes Nora! I find being thankful gives a perspective that is always positive. Always growing. Always healing.
