In the winter, I do love to take some drives around my town after a snow storm! and always try to capture some Winter beauty, on this drive last month I did just that. Living in New England I never run out of subjects to paint, this old school house always has been one of my favorite ! Just think of the grandparents who told stories when they went to school walked miles and miles  through the snow to get to school! 
I decided to paint this one in casein an old medium, like an opaque watercolor or gouache , easy to get fine details, sometimes doing details relaxes my mind!

Mt Lafayette NH

 Mt Lafayette ©2017 Nita Leger Casey
It has been a longtime not posting, and I have missed my daily painters family. After my Spring show at the loading dock art gallery in June, I needed  to spend quality time with my husband who was battling lung problems, so we spent our summer in Maine and enjoyed the beauty around us, fall came and he was diagnosed with lung cancer and was given a few years ,but alas it didn't happen, the day before Christmas he passed away. So my painting took a back seat so to speak. Last week I decided to go out and paint with all my very good friends at my Winter favorite place to paint, it was certainly a good feeling! I am so lucky to have the best of friends who are so supportive.
 So this is the place Mt Lafayette  and a little view of Cannon Mountain from the Sunset Hill Inn. it's a 5x7  pastel matted into a 8x10 ready to ship $100.00 free shipping , email me nlcasey@charter.net
