Twirling Syd, 16x22, pastel on UArt © Nelia Harper
Twirling Syd

A simple moment caught in time.  A young girl sings a song and twirls an umbrella.  A cell phone camera captures the moment.  That moment is shared among friends.  The artist eye sees that moment and the urge to paint is there.

I can see the painting in my mind’s eye.  “Sure!” Mom says.  “I’d love to see you paint this!”

We talk about what the painting could be, i throw out some ideas.  Then, back in the studio, I dive deeper into the image and realize that so much is said in so little.

Aspen Meadow

As I was walking through this meadow in Rocky Mountain National Park, there was a light mist in the air from an early morning rain. Sun filtered through the spring leaves and bounced off the grass and mist, creating a soft glow. What a treasure. I often think back to that day, the light filtering through the aspens and the lightness I felt at seeing such beauty.

Painted from memory and imagination.

Summer Sweetness

Can you feel the fuzz?  Do you smell that sweet syrup of a ripe summer peach? Each summer, I look forward to peach season and picking up fresh peaches from the farmer’s market.  After they grow and ripen in the heat of the Western Slope, they arrive at the market ready to eat.  There’s nothing as delicious as a sweet summer peach on a hot day, especially when the juice drips down your hand…

"Peach Study" 5x5, Pastel, © Nelia Harper
Peach Study in Pastel

I’ve been looking forward to summer and doing a peach study in pastel for a larger painting.  Each year, Morton’s Organic Orchards sets up their fruit stand at the nearby farmer’s market. They begin with cherries that are so deep and dark in color, flavor and sugar that I feel ‘drunk’ after just a few morsels.

Following on the heels of the cherries, the peaches arrive. Clingstone peaches appear first – small and sweet. Then, giant freestone peaches arrive by the truckload, covered in peach fuzz. They line up, ready to be turned into pies and jams and in my case, ice cream and smoothies.

These little orbs of sweetness are surprisingly solid. I wanted the viewer to feel as though they could be picked up and held, as well as eaten.

You Sing to my Spirit Archival Print
You Sing to My Spirit Archival Print – Cascade Falls

Just as the sky began to lighten, I wound my way up the Thompson Canyon, and bounced over the well worn highway to the Wild Basin turnoff in Rocky Mountain National Park. Meeting other painters, we started up the trail with our 30 pound packs. About a mile in, the trail became steep and covered in snow. We carried on, and the reward was well worth the effort when we reached the tumbling Cascade Waterfalls.

As I painted, I thought of John Denver’s song, Calypso. The phrase, “You Sing to My Spirit” played through my mind as I painted next to the cascade of water.  This larger painting was created based on the plein air study.

"Fall at Bobcat Ridge" Pastel, 12x16 © Nelia Harper
Bobcat Autumn

Walk through the foothills of Colorado in the fall and the world alights in yellow, orange and gold.  This pastel painting was inspired by a walk through Bobcat Ridge Natural Area.  Located in the foothills of Fort Collins, I return again and again for inspiration and the display of fall color as the leaves turn from green to orange, yellow and gold.

Doggie in the Window

Located in the heart of France, there is a village built of red sandstone with roofs of slate, covered in lichen and moss. As I strolled through the village on a crisp fall day, I spotted this little “Doggie in the Window”. He was so excited and happy. He clearly wanted to come out to play.

Cheese Seller of Giza Archival Print

Overwhelmed by the massive pyramids of Giza, the world quickly diminished as I wandered the ancient alleyways of the nearby village. A high –pitched wail stunned me as it ricocheted off the high walls. “What is that sound?” I asked my guide. “Oh, that? A woman is letting people know that she is here selling her cheese.” She rounded the corner, draped in black, balancing her wares on her head.

Four Mile Rock Archival Print

Winds whipped and blew. Fire raged and scoured the hilltop. Still, the rocks remain. Wildflowers and grasses reclaim the land. As you hike through the skeletal remains of coniferous forest, the upturned rocks signal the four mile mark. What view will be our reward as we crest the trail?
