"Smell The Roses" Oil Painting by Artist, NORA KASTEN


"Smell The Roses"
© Nora Kasten
Oil painting on linen on board  (24"x24")     February 12, 2012


"It was tempting to not sign this painting but I've eaten a lot of humble pie lately and this is just another bite.  

I purchased a new chrome and black easel the other day that will hold a large canvas and the plan is to experiment with more of the"Contemporary Expressions" I completed a couple of years ago.  Karl didn't especially like those works so I discontinued them but now seems to be the right time to go in that direction again."

Linseed oil dries the most quickly and is good for bottom layers or underpainting. It's important to note that linseed oil tends to yellow,

Nora this is very nice! You're contemporary style is full of emotion and popping with color. So happy you've picked up a brush again. Paint on girl!

This is lovely Nora.

I think the bright colors and impasto
balance the expression and mood in this.
I hope you are well.
