Wash day

Pastel 8x10
©2011 Nita Leger Casey
Mother's day in a couple days!  This painting always reminded me of the old days when all the moms use to hang all the laundry out , it would come back in the house smelling so nice and fresh!  I still hang on a nice day, I painted this a few years back while I was painting with some friends and one artist  did her laundry ,I went out there with my easel in the yard to capture this scene. This painting is available. It would make a great decor for a Laundry room.

Decided to do another scene of my Sunday drive, the ice going out is always nice with these strong colors and  perfect for a pastel, I did it early this morning before I get carried away with the endless list of chores I have to do. It was a beautiful day today, like 85 degrees, last week we had a foot of snow.

Cottages comes in all shapes, some nicer then other, but I always see the beauty of a structure and  think of the lives who have lived there. Sometimes I go back to that same place and it is gone ,they have replaced it with big house,and feel sad ! This scene  of a cottage and Spanish Moss was in a small town called Bluffton SC, I couldn't find that little cottage again !  
it is available $100.00 matted and shipped ,email me: nlcasey@charter.net
