Archive Oil Paintings by Artist, NORA KASTEN

"Floral Delight"

Painting, Oil on Linen on Board  (10"x8")


"These two paintings shipped to The Brown County Art Guild Gallery today.  Two paintings delivered to that gallery last month have sold and these are replacements.  

Painting is still non-existant for me so all the paintings delivered to the galleries now are from the archives.  The Gallerie du Soleil here in Naples Florida recently took nine of my works from the archives and I am most honored to be represented by this fine gallery.


To all my dear friends who have called or e-mailed recently, checking on Nora, it's really good to report I'm feeling normal once again and can honestly say "I'm OK".   I realize it's time for this blog to get back to the art and just let go of the grief.  There is so much to be thankful for today and life is good. . . .  certainly, daily walks on the Marco Island beach is one thing I really enjoy.


My precious granddaughter, Macy, posted this (below) on her facebook page and I think it is good.  You might like it too if you're missing someone."

"Missing someone gets easier everyday because even though you are one day further from the last time you saw them, you are one day closer to the next time you will."

You know I looked at your blog just today and was thinking of you! You made me smile hearing you are doing so well. Yay for you and hold Macy's sweet advice close to your heart. Take care and I just know we will meet one day!

How wonderful that you are doing better, Nora. I'm sorry I haven't checked in on you. Much going on here and haven't been quite myself. Have thought of you often though. :)

HI Nora,

Congratulations on your sales! Selling from the archives..hum? We have a lot to learn from you. It's genius. Happy to hear you're ok. Walks on Marco Island sound divine. Don't worry about the painting. One day it will come and perhaps feel like an old friend returning. As for Macy, she's got it all figured out. Hugs my friend.

Your florals always shine!
