"The path to the mountain", oil 5x7 on board , copyrighted 2009
Nita Leger Casey
We are back home after a wonderful five days in Maine. I have painted this path many different way , the sunlight seems to dance trough the trees at all times , so again another scene that always look different in my Plein air days in the woods of Maine . A few commission work have come in so I will have to squeeze my small daily paintings somehow , it's kind of a challenge .
Another beautiful September day.
If you start thinking about Christmas presents , what better way to buy an original work from an artist on daily Painters .Email me if you have any questions about any paintings you see in my gallery.

Reflection , by Nita Leger Casey ,copyrighted 2009 , 6x6 oil
the reflection of a simple tree in the water ,just like a mirror is always fun to do .
I cleaned part of my basement today where I keep all my frames ,why does the style change so fast , all gold frames all wood frames all black frames , styles always changing drive me crazy!
the storage the money involve is another thing. But that's the business we are in , It is what it is !
Thinking of going up north the colors are really changing , and I need a few days in the woods before it gets too cold. This little painting would make a perfect present for someone .
