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 !
