My studio is located in a town with lots of history, and this painting of the Luncheonette has plenty, sad to say the owner has got old and the place is closed. I took a photo of it last year. of course added some life to it by adding people, I love to paint these little Street scenes, I did many in the passed ,some still need a home .  This scene is in Lowell Massachusetts .

Bluebird

Bluebird 
Acrylic and ink
6x6.©2018
I have been fascinated these last few weeks with all the birds who come and visit my feeders daily, and the ones who only come just ounce and awhile like the bluebirds, mostly in the winter. I had captured this one on my deck on a pot of mixed greens and berries. I have taken beautiful photos of so many of them, it was actually funny this morning I must had 15 doves looking at the kitchen window, like saying the feeder is empty! a squirrel comes earlier and does a job on the food!

Dunstable farm

Dunstable farm ©2018
#2 sketch
I was on my way back from the studio a couple days ago  and this very familiar farm I see daily said, please sketch me today! I love when my sketches are from that moment when it hits me like i have to do this now, so I did! a sketch is really a simple drawing and not trying to do every details, it can be a challenge for me as I love details .  Adding the white gouache gives you that cold feeling of the moment .
These sketches are in my book , but if you look at this blog, I have plenty paintings who need a home, so feel free to email me if you see some  you like .

The Maine rose cottage

The Maine rose cottage Sold
 8x10Watercolor
 ©Nita Leger Casey
I was looking through some of my past summers watercolor, and I remember painting this one , it had to be the cutest cottage on that street on the edge of the ocean , I am glad I did when I saw it, because the year after it had lost it's appeal, probably a different owner who didn't care about flowers. So when you see something that really speak to you ,paint it!
 This little watercolor would make a great present to someone who loves Maine !
