Reworked Paintings, Destroyed Paintings by Artist, NORA KASTEN

"Today, I did something that I almost never do and that is to rework a painting.  I go with the theory that it is better . . .    and saves precious time to start a new painting rather than try to fix a bad one.  But the two paintings above were reworked today and I feel better about them.   I removed two inches from each side of "Red Geraniums" before reworking."


No hope for the two paintings below so I destroyed them and they are GONE


"March Bouquet No. 1"  (16"x12")
Oil on linen on board

"Dried Roses & Blue Vase"  (12"x12")
Oil on textured canvas

Hello Nora. I've been practically nonexistent in blog world lately. What a wonderful surprise to see so many post from you! I agree the reworking led to a good ending. I rarely do that myself.

Another road trip? How wonderful. I know it's how you prefer to go. Personally I'd choose a plane... Have a great time and here's blessings to pack on your trip. Smiles and hugs for you my dear!

Susan, there's not a good flight from here to Taos so we're just doing a touring vacation along with the art workshop. If you haven't been blogging, are you alright?
