Decided to do this wonderful little vignette from my studio ,it is at a distance but that is what I see, passed the Mill and the Canal , this week end I was showing all the visitors the scene one said you make it look like Nantucket , no it's Lowell ! it is a compliment . It was nice to paint there very quiet and the time just went so fast , I also did another small oil , a few more commitments and then I should have a real schedule being there .
It was also nice to get back to my watercolors .

Colors of fall #1
pastel 6x8 ,copyrighted 2010
Nita Leger Casey
I can paint this scene over and over and never will be the same , it's the view from our cabin , I never get tired of looking at it , I have hundreds of photos from this view , I wake up in the morning with a nice sunrise peeking trough the shades , I will slide out of bed with my camera in hand just to snap a few pictures , in the evening when the sun is sitting I will do that again , all seasons , it is amazing how one view always looks different ,of course as artist we learn to see , someone else would say boring! not me , I find peace in this view !
This is a pastel , I will be doing a few demos in the next two months at the Chelmsford art Society in October and in the Bedford art Society in November if you are in the area , you are welcome !

Peggy's flowers
Oil on board ,6x6 copyrighted 2010
Nita Leger Casey
My friend Peggy brought me these flowers the other day when she and her friends came to see my new studio , I quickly photograph them , I started with the real photographic back ground but felt it was taking away from the flowers , I wanted to do these very loose and painterly ! It is harder to leave details out then painting every petals and leaves .
email me with any inquiry you may have of past or present paintings on my blog ,commissions always welcome! ,

Went to the studio today and painted with my friend Paula and her sister Wanda from Atlanta , we had fun painting different things different medium and style , that is why it makes it interesting ! tomorrow we were supposed to go to Plum Island to paint plein air ,but I guess the weather has another idea, I am disappointed because I don't know if I will be able to go next week . I painted the Inn we stay at every year in a very loose style , I hope you like it ! Well if you are interested in any of my paintings give me a shout!

Head Harbour Lighthouse/ East Quoddy Head Lighthouse,
miniature 2,5 x 3,5 , copyrighted 2010
Nita Leger Casey sold

I am getting close to the end of my 25 mini paintings ! the worst is thinking of new subjects , I try to never repeat my scenes , I have painted this lighthouse many times but never the same angle , this was from a boat I went on whale watching , that is the only way you see this particular angle from the water .
Another hot day today , wonder what tomorrow will bring ? too hot to go to my new studio so I am hoping for some cooler weather next week !
