NORA KASTEN Artist Oil Painting "Clementine In A Glass"


"Clementine In A Glass"
© Nora Kasten
Oil painting on primed canvas (8"x10") Finished & signed 12/26/10

"This painting is going to be in a fund raising gala for The Naples Museum Of Art to be held in April, 2011.  Three hundred artists across the country are participating and I am honored to be one of them.

The "Friends Of Naples Art Museum" committee contacted me early last summer and I agreed.  But it was shortly after my painting ceased and I devoted all my time to my beloved Karl.  Now that I am led to paint again, I gave this my full attention and thankful because the painting is due back to the committee on or before January, 10, 2011.  I believe I'll make it.  The painting was varnished this morning (Liquin is my varnish) and now it just has to dry.

There is something else on my painting agenda.  It seems to be building up the steam for activation and I hope to share it with you soon."

Nora: Look to the year coming as the one where your dreams are living, were life becomes whole against. You count so much, you are part of all the people that admire you and love you work.
Go Nora go, we will there

Oh Nora, it's beautiful! The committee will be so happy with your painting.

Happy New Year! I can't wait to see what's brewing inside you. I hope I'm not jumping the gun by saying, "Welcome back!"

I could choose to fit the canvas print that I was ordering from wahooart.com to the pattern and color of the wallpaper in my living room. I could search
for artwork by subject matter and even predominant colors. Then I customized the frame online because the site
allowed me to match the frame style with different wallpapers, one of which looked like ours.
So now have this canvas print by Pierre Bonnard, http://en.wahooart.com/A55A04/w.nsf/OPRA/BRUE-8LT4PD

The universal love of roses.
Look at this Still life with roses, by Auguste Renoir (most popular famous paintings). How did the painter capture the life of roses in this way? Each petal seems to be dancing with the joy of it all.
The painting is shown at wahooart.com where, rather ingeniously, you can search for the subject matter of paintings in western art. Many web pages come up with the search for roses.
The company specializes in making excellent canvas prints of the original paintings and you can choose your prints from thousands of masterpieces of old.
