The old Cadillac

1953 Cadillac
"I was loved once  "
original watercolor by Nita Leger Casey  
9x12 ©2014
My son was the owner of this old Cadi for awhile, it was a restoration project for him, but he had too many of them and decided it was best to let this one go, so now this old girl went to Florida, I had taken some photos of it and yesterday decided to paint it, I have a few of these old cars that I would like to do, I actually like the rust it gives it character just like an old person with wrinkles.

Casein paint on board
Nita Leger Casey
Living just about  over an hour away from these beautiful mountain scenes , it makes a nice Sunday drive ! this  is what Tim and I had done last year, the scenes had reminded me so much of the Aldro Hibbard paintings if you are from New England. This scene had to be done! the view is from a Covered bridge close to the town of Littleton . I really want to go back in the area to catch some nice winter scenes. this painting is available email me

Frozen pond

©2013 Nita Leger Casey
 This is the season when you drive by frozen ponds just about  everywhere in New England ,a natural beauty and lots of fun for the kids who skate on them and the big boys who go ice fishing, but for me it's to see the sunlight coming through the trees ,I did this one last year.
Looking for a home now, it's matted and framed with an 8x10 dark wood frame. $150.00  , email me if you are interested .

While I was making supper I looked out the window and saw this beautiful Sunset ,I  had to stop everything I was doing and grabbed my watercolor, I had to be quick! you know  a sunset does not last long, to even go faster I took an artistic licence to take the house out that was in my way.On the left it's an apple tree where many deer come to get the old apples .

Dove on a cold morning

  Happy New year everyone! this is my first painting of the year, I woke this morning and a row of doves where on the railing just like this ,it was very cold in the teens but the sun was shining ,so I think they were sunbathing ,tomorrow they will be at the feeder eating like crazy ,snow is coming during the night and it looks like a big one!
I had a great week with all the family ,kids and grandchildren, it was wonderful to be all together , the only bad thing is we eat way too much!
So now back to painting and reorganized my gallery and studio .
Again wishing everyone a wonderful new year for 2014!
