 I painted this awhile back, it was actually a demo to show an Artist group, how to use pastels and keep it loose and impressionistic. The medium is a bit messy but you really get nice affects.
This is a beautiful farm in our town, the Blood farm ! only a few farm are left in most towns these days, this one still has pristine pastures with rolling hills .
It is available if interested, very affordable, you just need to frame it ! $200.00

Mt.Lafayette NH

Mt. Lafayette , pastel © 2020 Nita Leger Casey
I could paint this mountain everyday of the week and it would look different, as the atmosphere is ever changing. When we arrived on February 25 , the excitement of seen that mountain and our friend Dave Drinon already at his easel, made me take mine as soon as I could and quickly take my pastels out, and just do it . The sun has gone out a bit!  In the next few days,we had  every kind of weather possible and off course snow, but it is our goal to paint in snow and call it snow camp. I don't know how many time I have painted that tree, but it always looks different as well. This is a little late to reminiscing about snow camp, but Covid 19 has thrown a bit of unusual in all our lives. And good times of memories are a good thing !

Cannon Mountain from Sugar Hill

Cannon Mountain from Sugar Hill   Sold
Pastel 11x14 ©2020 Nita Leger Casey

Yesterday I posted about being in South Carolina, but the week before I was at a painting retreat at  The Inn at Sunset Hill in New Hampshire . Having a great time with all my Artist friends,10 of us who have gone there for many years, and just love this place. A place we can relax and step outside to do Plein Air and forget about the rest of the world, end the day with a great meal, a glass of wine and telling wonderful stories. We did get some news about the pandemic in Europe, but seemed so distant and it would never affect us, little did we know it was coming !
The view from the Inn is just beautiful and changes by the minute of the day, this was when the sky was changing at the end of the day and managed to capture that little pink in the sky.
This painting is available , $300.00 .email me for details
