"Fit for a Princess"
Watercolor 10x10 copyrighted 2011 ,
Nita Leger Casey
I went to Newburry street Last Monday ,when I came upon the wonderful display in a boutique window , I couldn't resist thinking it would make a perfect painting for the day the Princess is getting married ,I must say this Boutique had picked a beautiful dress for their May bride . Tomorrow morning I will wake up at 4 AM to see the wedding ,I am sure I will not be the only one , over the years I have watch them all , when it was princess Diana we were living in Germany at the time . I imagine Princess Kate will be beautiful !

Playing with colors today and I was not sure what I was going to get as a finish painting .

Finely a nice day today ,buds are on the trees finely and the first jonquils are out .
Wishing everyone a nice Easter week end !

A watercolor looking for a home! many people visit this beautiful New England fishing coastal town, famous for all the artists who have reside there over the years. Motif one to be the most painted in the US , would make a nice addition to any collector , yes trite but classic!
A good practice to buy originals and start a collection of your own ,

Hoping to get back on my schedule of painting some new scenes with the good weather now .

5x7 watercolor (c) 2011
Nita Leger Casey
From my studio window I could see a little bit of this Gingerbread design at a distance ,so when I went home a couple days ago ,I managed to find this house in the back streets of Lowell across the canal , the sun was shining on it , perfect subject for me ! as I drive in town every day I see all those beautiful homes , some have been taking care by tenants who love them , and some have not! I think they will be my next challenge , I love old houses !
stay tuned for my oldies .
