Hollis Village

I live on the Massachusetts border with New Hampshire. The town closest to me is Hollis with tons of New England charm, so I must say it's always a pleasure to paint there. I have done this scene a few times,different style. I did one in Pastel, that was sold right away, also have done it in Pen & ink.

 9x12 watercolor
 I always been fascinated with street scene ! over the years, I have painted different scenes ,landscapes,seascapes animals, etc...   but seems to go back to the street scenes . So I probably should concentrate on that, they seem to call my name ! 

My paintings are all originals , some are done on location , some are after I have visited an area and go back home with some reference to work from ! I strive to be original work. 

If  I don't blog as often I used too, it's because I do a lot on Facebook and Instagram.

If interested in my paintings, email me at  

A little bet of news to announce , I am represented at  the Folly Cove Fine Art.

Mt.Lafayette NH

Mt. Lafayette , pastel © 2020 Nita Leger Casey
I could paint this mountain everyday of the week and it would look different, as the atmosphere is ever changing. When we arrived on February 25 , the excitement of seen that mountain and our friend Dave Drinon already at his easel, made me take mine as soon as I could and quickly take my pastels out, and just do it . The sun has gone out a bit!  In the next few days,we had  every kind of weather possible and off course snow, but it is our goal to paint in snow and call it snow camp. I don't know how many time I have painted that tree, but it always looks different as well. This is a little late to reminiscing about snow camp, but Covid 19 has thrown a bit of unusual in all our lives. And good times of memories are a good thing !

Cannon Mountain from Sugar Hill

Cannon Mountain from Sugar Hill   Sold
Pastel 11x14 ©2020 Nita Leger Casey

Yesterday I posted about being in South Carolina, but the week before I was at a painting retreat at  The Inn at Sunset Hill in New Hampshire . Having a great time with all my Artist friends,10 of us who have gone there for many years, and just love this place. A place we can relax and step outside to do Plein Air and forget about the rest of the world, end the day with a great meal, a glass of wine and telling wonderful stories. We did get some news about the pandemic in Europe, but seemed so distant and it would never affect us, little did we know it was coming !
The view from the Inn is just beautiful and changes by the minute of the day, this was when the sky was changing at the end of the day and managed to capture that little pink in the sky.
This painting is available , $300.00 .email me for details

Recent demo at the Chelmsford art Society.

It was an honor to recently do a demo for the Chelmsford, Massachusetts  Art Society.
Very familiar with this group where I have been a member since 1982 .

Denise's bed

 Denise's bed,©2018Nita Leger Casey
 While at the Inn at our February Art retreat, Denise and I rented this beautiful room with twin bed and this is when I decided to do a bed series, I painted this one there, just a small one 4x5 .  I have many other beds to do, but also have to paint a few commissions in between, so it is taking me a little longer then I though. So stay tunes!
