 Pierre and the girls  ,©2015
Pen and Ink sketches , a challenge for the next 30 days with my Art friends, sketching can be very rewarding and relaxing, the challenge is fairly easy for me , I sketch all the time ever since I was a small girl,it got me in trouble a few times when I would sketch on very important papers at my father's desk.
So to all my art friends ,keep on sketching!

North Anson Tower

Watercolor 11x14
Nita Leger Casey
I am not too sure of the History of the tower?  I was told it was a "World war 2 "look out tower. It's located at a farm where I get vegetable in Maine, the building is so interesting, looks like a cross between a windmill and a  lighthouse, I always been intrigued by it , and for years it has been on my list to do,  it was a very hot day when I started  the painting, after I sketched must of the details, I went back to our cabin to finish it.
I will get more info on my next trip to Maine ,not for sale at this time, but please check my inventory of other New England scenes.
