I decided to fix a painting I painted on location back in the late Winter early Spring , I was exited with the water rushing , I had captured the rushing water but was never crazy of the background ,so it sat in the floor of the Studio all Summer ,I decided to give it a fall look ! I feel better now .
I have been working on a project at the Mill with a mural ,when it is done I will post photos , they are on my Face book now .As always my paintings are available , please email me if you are interested

The Winter's Inn
watercolor 6x8 Copyrighted 2010
Nita Leger Casey
This is a watercolor result of my week end in Kingfield Maine . This Inn is on top of a hill over looking the village , The Winter family being very affluent in the old days , Amos G. Winter built a mansion for his wife, Julia, on top of Winter's Hill over looking the town of Kingfield, Maine and the mountains of the Carrabassett Valley. I also believe they had a lot to do about The Sugarloaf mountain , the now resort who is so famous for many New England skiers .
Email me if you are interested in this gem , great for a collector or someone who has visited this famous location .
