Coast of Maine , oil on copper 5x7
copyrighted 2010
Nita Leger Casey
In the past year I have two friends Ingrid and Susan who have painted on copper ,and I wanted to try this new surface , I knew I had some in the basement , I must of bought 20 years ago for some other project, looking for something else in the basement I came across the copper , a bit out of shape but managed to get it back in to shape and painted this scene from memory , a place I often paint in the summer . I was surprised how it went so nicely on the surface .I am not an expert on this, it was a trial , Susan Renee Lammers has done some nice paintings in Arcadia National park. Ingrid Christensen also has painted beautiful portraits on copper . They were two nice artists I had the opportunity to meet and spend time with last years. There is not much I have not tried when it comes to art . In a future post I will have to think of what medium or surface I have not painted with . To be continued .....
