Vacation To Maine by Artist, NORA KASTEN

Painting #1074 of 1181   Oil on Canvas (24"x24")  Completed October 30, 2009
 I enjoy viewing this painting here in my home now in Naples, FL  

WOW!  Today, I am going to Maine.  It's a vacation.  I will arrive in Portland, ME late tonight.  Tomorrow I will be with good artist friend and art gallery owner, Susan Roux.  Check out her gallery here.  Roux & Cyr International Fine Art Gallery.  

Friday, September 5, through Sunday, September 7, I will be in Stetson, ME.  After that, it's up for grabs.
Through the restorative power of the Silence, I rest

Rest is essential for achieving excellence in my work and relationships. To be at my best, I must have energy, enthusiasm, and a clear head. Being tired or frazzled reminds me that it is time to recharge my batteries.
When in need of rest, I turn to the restorative power of the Silence. I begin by simply placing my attention on my breath. I set aside any concerns, responsibilities, or tasks, and reconnect with the calm and loving energy of Spirit. As I close my eyes, I become aware of my body and relax each part of it, from my head to my toes. I surrender all of me to the Silence. Its power restores me—body, mind, and soul. I am rested and refreshed.
Come to me, all you that are weary and are carrying heavy burdens, and I will give you rest.—Matthew 11:

Après la longue pause estivale durant laquelle j'exposais mon travail à Gassin dans le Var, me revoilà ! Je suis très heureuse de vous retrouver et de pouvoir à nouveau ouvrir la porte de votre univers...

Un très joli bégonia aux belles nuances de couleurs orangées...
Je vous invite à faire un gros bisou de ma part à mon amie Susan qui me manque... Elle est si occupée.
✺ ❊ Je vous fais de gros bisous ❊ ✺
