Village life

Village Life , watercolor 5x7 copyrighted 2010
Nita Leger Casey

A scene where a mom is taking her children to school and run ahead of her , I remember those days and you are calling them while they ignore you !
I started just to paint this house with a wonderful shadow,but I was thinking I need life in this village in France.
All my French scene are from actual places using some artistic license .
French country is very much in style now for many decors.

Blue Shutters, Nita Leger Casey

"Blue Shutters" 5x7 (C) watercolor
Nita Leger Casey

I love blue shutters on a house , actually my house has them now !
This watercolor is a house in France in a small town of Nibelle ,where many of my relatives live , an area where I used to spend my summer vacations when I was growing up.
Can you tell I love to paint architecture , even as a young child , I would draw houses on everything .
This is a lovely watercolor and would make a nice addition to someones collection.

Le grand village

"Le grand village " watercolor 6x8 (c)
Nita Leger Casey

I painted this watercolor on location few years ago , while I was visiting my mother who lived down the road from this farm , I could walk from their back garden and chat with the farmers while I was painting ,they were always concerned about her because she lived alone and she was approaching 100 at the time . French people always have nice gardens and they are very proud of them.
I miss not going there ,I was going there twice a year , I am due for a trip there soon ! I f you love France , this is a true French original painting painted on location . email me if you are interested
