Trapp Falls ,New England

18x24 pastel ©2014
Nita Leger Casey
This is a larger painting I just finished this past week,  my husband and I took a Sunday ride just to catch some foliage, I think we just did it in time before we had a storm that took lots of leaves down , my yard is now covered!  the years past  I would rake them all, now I have a landscape CO. do the job, just too much to do for my old bones.
These falls are about 10 minutes from my house in a State park . So lucky to live in New England!  email me if you are interested , this is a larger painting !

Waiting to go fishing

Nita Leger Casey
This is a typical scene in small villages on the coast of Maine, this one was in the Bay of Fundy.
Early in the morning must likely a very foggy morning, these fisherman take these boats out and stay out  all day trying to bring home the right catch, I truly have respect for these guys!
this watercolor is available 
email me  $100.00 + shipping

Smalls fall, Rangeley Maine

Original Watercolor 6x12
Nita Leger Casey,©2014
When my son and his family came to visit this summer , we took a trip to Rangeley Maine , a beautiful town in the Western Mountains of Maine, right on a Lake. When you go to Rangeley you will pass a small town called Madrid , yes Madrid but not Spain!  and say it like the locals do, because they will correct your accent. There you will find this beautiful fall, very well visited by tourists  and a treat for daring kids who make the jump in the pool at the top, a mother's nightmare of course! I painted this in watercolors but my intention was to do a larger one later in Pastel .
 This one is available email me if you are interested $100.00 matted .

Summer of sketchbooking

 Sketching by the pond with friends! actually had them doing it as well for the first time.will
I have not posted for awhile, I sort of took a break from  daily posting, but never stopped doing painting and sketching where ever I went, back in fourth to Maine and a trip to Kentucky in August . I love sketching and just wanted of share a few of my summer sketches and when I was not doing that I was painting larger pastels of barns . Will try to get back in the routine with my new work!
