Kerry sheep

Acrylic painting 11x14 matted
Nita Leger Casey
In April Tim and I went to Ireland to the small village on the ring of Kerry where my husband's family from both side of his grandparents come from ,the landscape is spectacular and breathtaking at times with rolling hills and mountains full of sheep grazing the luscious grass, I am talking thousands of them, I don't know how many times I stopped to take photos of them ,being  Spring they was a lot of Spring lambs running around, so cute! I wanted to take one home.
If you love sheep and collect them this is your chance email me

Sweet face cow

Watercolor 9x12 (c) 2012
I started this painting as a sketch, I like the feeling of the loosnest so I decided to keep it this way!
When we go to Maine the biggest thrill my dog Clancy gets is to stop and see farmer Gabe's cows, he scans the fields so we stop open the window and talk to the cows, they might look dumb but I think they are very smart ,this one had a sweet face ,I might paint it again in acrylic .
again if you are interested in this painting email me

A loon by the moon

#4  of my series,acrylic on paper
9x12 (c)2012
Nita Leger Casey
Two nights ago my friends and I were sitting by a campfire on the edge of the water when the moon started to rise ,what a beautiful scene ! the loons are always swimming by, I had taken a photo of one of them just an hour before ,so i combined the scene.
30 years ago when we came to Maine I did not know what a loon was, I remember the real estate agent telling me how wonderful it was to have loons on the pond, I learned fast about them and fell in love with them, my friends and I worry about them all the time, check if they are nesting, get mad a the dam owner who sometimes does not control the water level as he should, they have lost their nest a few times with the fluctuation of the water level.They fish all day long and are able to stay under water for a longtime. I love the sound they make at night, we also know when they feel danger they will let you know with their loud cry,they do not like planes flying over,in the winter they go to the ocean,and come back every year to the same lake or pond.
