Snow Fields at Sunset Hill
16x20 oil on canvas , (c) 2011
Nita Leger Casey
We are in the middle of a blizzard expecting two feet ! coming from snow camp with Stapelton Kearns and anxious to paint more snow scene ,Well I won't have to go far, the big beautiful mountains will be missing but I am sure I will find some great landscape right here in Pepperell .
I really want to try some of the techniques Stape showed us , I am really getting to like the old Aldro Hibbard paintings more and more ,after talking about them the entire week end ,over the years I have seeing many of them specially when I visit the Vose Gallery in Newburry Street in Boston who have a collection of them , they are very impressive ,I must say he had a way with snow , Stape has been walking in his footstep and producing some beautiful work as well . I truly enjoyed this last workshop ,I feel so fortunate to live in this beautiful New England !
Next Saturday , Open Studios at Western Avenue ,noon to 5 , hope to see some of my friends there .
