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 !

Wash day

Pastel 8x10
©2011 Nita Leger Casey
Mother's day in a couple days!  This painting always reminded me of the old days when all the moms use to hang all the laundry out , it would come back in the house smelling so nice and fresh!  I still hang on a nice day, I painted this a few years back while I was painting with some friends and one artist  did her laundry ,I went out there with my easel in the yard to capture this scene. This painting is available. It would make a great decor for a Laundry room.
