Antique Ford Fairlane

Watercolor 9x12
©2015 Nita Leger Casey  Antique ford Fairlane ,not sure of the year?
I have two sons who have trained me well, their love of old cars has rubbed off on me, when driving around New England I can spot an old car  a mile away. I took a photo of this one in a small neighborhood  where we had lived some years back. If this car could talk it would say: I can't wait for Spring ! because I am sick of being in this snow! and this was when we didn't have much snow , by now this poor car must be buried !
This might be the car you always wanted?
This painting is available ,just email me

Blue bird and berries

4x5 pastel ©2015
The last few days during our New England snow storms, blue birds have come to visit , I have been fascinated with them and taking a lot of photos and sketching them, every year they do come looking for the Christmas berries I usually have for decoration on my deck .It was snowing like crazy and they had a feast! today I went to the feed store and got more food for them ,they like meal worms hoping this will keep them around.
email me if you are interested in this small painting.

The red shed

watercolor 8x10
© Nita Leger Casey
The last two weeks have been a real challenge living in New England, after receiving 6 feet of snow, I have spent my days cleaning and shoveling snow paths for my dog and a way to get to my chickens. We all complain about the snow of where we are going to put more snow that is coming !  but late  this afternoon  it was just beautiful to see the late sun hitting the buildings and long shadows  across the fields and then a beautiful sunset! I guess as an artist I see beauty in any weather!
This painting was done awhile back, it's a scene in Pepperell, I just love this little red shed!
it is available , email me

Lonely house in the snow.

Watercolor 5x7

We have been snowed in!  We have had two major snow storm in a week , the snow is as tall as me at some places, today I had to go over a mountain of snow to get to my chickens, poor guys they will be cooped up for awhile.  Sunday we did get a nice sunny day so Tim and I took a ride to Plum Island off the coast of Massachusetts, it was beautiful and worth the ride, this lonely house sits at the entrance of the island in the marshland , I think it is abandoned ! I always feel bad when I see it, looks so lonely out there by itself, I am sure in the years past it was a beautiful place,if the walls could talk? I just painted a small watercolor ,this is the second time I have painted this house .I know one day it will be gone ! this small painting is available , just email me .
