Not your ordinary house portrait

At one of my open studio a young couple came in with a request : If I would paint a house portrait on a Corvette hard top? not knowing what is was? I said that depends let me me see it, oh I have in the truck the young men reply, I said go get it then! after he came up to the 4 th floor with the car top, I said well never have done this but I will try my best, I always like a challenge. The story was they just had sold their parents house who had recently passed away and found the Dad's car hard top in the attic while cleaning the house for the sale, this will be a nice remembering of the house and the car. So here are some photos of the  project, Oh forgot to mention I also had to paint the car and the dog. They had provided many photos at different time.
The project is almost done , and the young couple will pick it up at next open studios

Frozen river

Oil on paper  6x8
Nita Leger Casey
Another scene from Vermont  done in oil this time, I have not painted in oils for awhile  but just felt the urge couple night ago, I was trying this new paper for oils  made by Arches, not bad !
I have been working on a commission that is very interesting , I think on my next post I will talk about it and post some photos , actually I have been working on two projects and both are unusual .
Spring is around the corner I think! I am anxious to start cleaning my yard but we have to wait awhile  they are talking snow for tomorrow again, I do love to paint snow!
 if anyone is interested in this this painting  let me know , $100.00 free shipping in US

Vermont Sugar house

watercolor 6x8 ©2014
Tim and I have just spent a wonderful  couple days in Quechee to celebrate our Anniversary, a beautiful area  with lots of interesting scenery like barns ,covered bridges and lots of sugar maple farms, it is the season to tap the sugar from the maple trees you have a short window to do this, cold nights and warm days of course I love to see the buckets hanging from the trees but now in large farms they just use plastic tubing to be collected in large blue buckets, progress does not help my paintings! email me if you are interested in this watercolor . nlcasey@charter.net
