Just another view of my home town, with a little drama  of light, I had fun and a  little bit of a challenge to achieve the look I wanted . I was pleased at the end !
One more week before I get my new knee, I think I am ready , I have too many thing to do just sitting around .
I will be at open Studio this Saturday.

A rainy day in Orleans #2

Watercolor 6x8

This one also from my last trip to France, I had met a friend at that corner restaurant  for coffee.
This past week I really was tempted to paint the fall here in New England, it has been so beautiful but I  knew I wanted to paint this one first and I forced myself to focus , a hard thing to do for me!  Having a lot on my mine with my knee replacement surgery ,but all appointments are falling into place and now looking forward this new knee .
any questions ? nlcasey@charter.net

This morning I decided to paint what I wanted to do since I went to my home town in February and just never got around to do it, what happen you go somewhere and you want to paint them as soon as you get home ,but them another small trip or a change of seasons and you are painting something else, it comes down that you need to focus, that is one of the hardest thing to do for me , just focus!Since i am not able to do much until I get my new knee ,I will try to focus on small paintings I  have been wanting to do!
This is place du Martroi in Orleans ,France

New England is at it's best right now! everywhere you look you see these beautiful colors ,it is truly an amazing show of natural beauty.
I have been out  of commission with a bad knee ,so this week end we stayed close to home, normally we are at our pond, I was lucky to see it two weeks ago ,this is the road going out to the main road ,i just love the long shadows.
Well it looks like i am getting a new knee , a bit scared of the process , many of my friends had it done and happy with it so I am going to look to the positive and forget the horror stories!  so the next few weeks I probably will be posting some works that need a home . email me nlcasey@charter.net

I have just finished this one, still on my easel!  not sure if I will have time to frame it before the open studios this week end, I captured this scene on our way to our favorite restaurant couple weeks ago, the shadows made me totally turned the car around to this field ,these moments of the perfect light only last minutes .At the same time I  was working on the door project at Wester Avenue, it looks great , a few minor details to finish. The week will be very busy for me party on Friday night, opening of our  show at the Loading dock gallery Saturday night,and two days of open studios with lots of visitors!
