"Mixed Roses" Oil Painting by Artist, Nora Kasten


"Mixed Roses"
Oil painting on linen on board  (15"x30")  From the archives, 2010

"I skipped the grief support group last night and believe it was the right thing to do.  The first thing to come to mind this morning was that it's time now for me to maybe do some volunteering or find a place that I can be of help to others again.  I'm reminded of the scripture "To whom much is given, much is required".   My dear Karl is no longer with me but he enriched my life so very much for a good number of years and I'm eager to share my blessings.

Then, later this morning I received an e-mail from friend and great artist, Joyce Norwood, asking me to participate with her and other artists in a large Art Show & Fundraiser for a Baptist church here in Naples.  It will be Thursday, April 14, 2011 and I am so glad to have this opportunity to share some of my blessings.

Last Sunday I delivered the painting "Fresh Cut Roses" to The Sheldon Fine Art Gallery here in Naples.  It was the first painting delivered to them since many months before Karl died and how I hope it sells.  The good people at Sheldon Fine Art have been very patient with me through this season of grief."
