House portrait

Watercolor of a commissioned House portrait in New England
©2015 by Nita Leger Casey
Now that Christmas is over, I am posting a few homes I had to do in December. This one was a beautiful home with a late fall landscape and nice late sun light, I had fun doing it, the owner has  been in the house for thirty years, so if she ever decides to move she always will have her memories of her beautiful home, The owner was happy when she picked it up !  It was time for me to relax!

A little Wintah

watercolor sketch 5x7,
Nita Leger Casey
I was just thinking about Wintah like they say in New England, well it has not arrived yet! I am not complaining, I am sure it will come, today was a raw rainy day, sometimes a snow storm feels warmer. So I was sitting at my drawing table just thinking about sketching a quick little snow scene, when I was teaching kids ,this one was one of their favorite to do.
Very simple!

Mini Blue bird

Nita Leger Casey
Last winter during a snow storm ,a flock of blue birds came on my porch to get some  winter berries I had in a big bucket , they actually have done this every year ,they only come for a few days and I never see them again . A few days ago I went in the yard to get some of the berries so I will be ready for their visit  when we do get winter, I know it will come !
I have many other birds that comes everyday, I just love them!

Lowell has Mills throughout the entire city, this one happens to be where the Brush Gallery is located, one day I was going there and the light was just right and wanted to do it in a really loose way, you know how I paint ! I have a way to ad too many details sometimes, so this time I stooped myself and left it  loose, I figured I got the light!
This painting is available ,
$100. email me    #lowellpark#themill#theBrush
