"Bright, Bright Sunshiny Day" Acrylic Painting by Artist NORA KASTEN

© Nora Kasten
Acrylic painting on 2" deep gallery wrapped canvas  (32"x 54")    March 10, 2012

"This painting is on a canvas, custom crafted, by the owner of the Art Emporium art supply and framing store here in Naples, FL.  It's hanging on an end wall of the lanai where I actually executed the painting that took me several weeks to even get started.

The title is from a song I was listening to on the radio while driving one day.  Can you hear the upbeat tune with lyrics . . . .  It's a bright, bright  sunshiny day . . . ?  That's what I was experiencing.

When I cleared out so many things in the house after Karl died, I sent all my acrylic paints to the Salvation Army and had to buy new to do this painting.  I'm still finding my way back but believe that I prefer working in oils the best. "

Wow! I can hear the song running through my head and I love this painting! It is so full of life. I enjoy acrylics but have been terrified of trying oils yet. One day.

Hello Nora, this one is quite different for you and aptly named. Isn't it wonderful when a word, or lyric sparks your creativity and you are able to capture it for everyone to see. I tried going back to acrylics but felt like I was starting all over again and quickly picked up my watercolors again. Life changes so quickly and I am happy when I have the stability of creating something beautiful with watercolor.

Wow Nora, there's so much excitement and movement in this painting! I can't get over the size! So glad to see you're painting again. You'll eventually find your way back, I have no doubt.
