"March Bouquet I" Oil Painting by Artist, NORA KASTEN


"March Bouquet I"
© Nora Kasten

Oil Painting on linen on board  (16"x12")   March 26, 2012

"I simply couldn't think of another title so this will be "I", in hopes that "II" and "III" will follow.  

A bump on the tip of my nose was biopsied today so I plan to stay in and paint for the next few days.  Who could have guessed that it would take this to get me back to the easel?


One thing that I would like to share with you is about my MAC and the new "Lion" operating system I've downloaded.  I've lost so many Pages documents and Pictures folders and even my bank can't open up my account using Safari.  They told me to use Google Chrome until they get the issues resolved with Apple and thank goodness, that works.   I am so sorry I upgraded to Lion because everything was working fine until then.  


Have any of you had this problem and how are you solving it?  I really want to go back to the old operating system, Leopard."

So glad to see a fabulous Nora floral! Love this. Yes, had some issues when updated on Mac...lost all my last 2 years phone numbers. Older daughter had opposite problem-lost all old numbers. I just think sometimes there are bugs in the tech stuff! Hang in there!!

Un très joli bouquet pour débuter cette nouvelle saison et qui honore Demoiselle Printemps.
Des teintes fraîches.

Oh Nora, your roses are as beautiful as every! It's so nice to see you back behind the easel. I've missed your colorful work.

As for your operating system, I can't help you there. Perhaps my boys could?

How wonderful to see you posting, Nora. Hope everything is good with the biopsy. As for your operating system; I've never heard of what you have. I started with Gateway and Microsoft Windows back in the 90's and have stayed with Windows when upgrading hardware, software, etc. It doesn't always go smoothly no matter which system you have but for the most part Windows has been good in my opinion. I hope you get it all straightened out real soon.

Kathy, Martine, Susan and Carol . . . .
I can't thank you all enough for your kind and helpful words to me. Everyday, it's still one moment or two at a time for me but healing is happening.

Hi Nora - I can't get over your painting skills - fantastic!! Yep, Safari did not work for paying bills online, so my daughter installed Firefox, which she prefers, says she thinks it's the best. Blessings, Ida
