"Loveland Feed and Grain" - Pastel - 12x16 © Nelia Harper
Next Stop: Feed and Grain – Loveland, CO

It was hot!  At 9 am, the ambient temperature was already reaching 90+ degrees.   I searched for a spot in the shade, where I could focus and not fry my skin.  Spying a level, shady spot next to the train tracks, I setup and began to outline the lines and angles of the old building.  Not long into the painting, a train roared past, carrying shiny new windmill blades.  Where once we were fed by the trains that carried grain, now the trains carry windmills to feed our hunger for energy.  Although abandoned, the building will soon undergo a renovation and be transformed into a home for artists and galleries.

"Old Friend" Pastel 12x15 © Nelia Harper
Old Friend

Along my favorite hiking trails, I look forward to seeing particular trees.  I’m drawn to their shapes, the curvature of their limbs, the shade they offer, or the feeling they invoke.   Over time, I feel like I know them, and that they know me.  I’ve had my eye on this particular bend in the trail.  I like the way the tree leans over, toward the bridge and the rock, greeting those that pass.  Just as people are unique in their character, so are trees.  As I painted this tree’s portrait, I felt like I was painting an ‘Old Friend’.

"Cliffs of the Poudre" Pastel 12x15 © Nelia Harper
Lazy Day at the Poudre

Not far from the city, along the Cache la Poudre River, there’s a fishing hole that’s popular with anglers seeking trout.  Originating in the northern range of Rocky Mountain National Park, the ice cold water quenches the thirst of the residents along its path before joining the South Platte and traveling to the Gulf of Mexico.  The water gurgled past, the trees were just beginning to turn, and I wished I’d worn my bathing suit for a quick dip in the river.

Fall Along the River 6x8 Pastel © Nelia Harper
Fall Along the River

Watching fall arrive along the South Platte River in Colorado is a special treat. The water drifts past, placid and gentle.  The cottonwoods shift from green to shades of orange and bright yellows.  The grasses glow, almost iridescent in the sunshine.  Yet, in the shade, the air is cool and refreshing.  While sitting on a log, painting this scene, I watched flock of wild turkeys fly across the river, minutes later, a pair of doves drifted past.  And, while I didn’t see them, I know that deer, beaver and muskrat are nearby, busily preparing for winter.

"Through the Fog" - Egg Tempera - 12x9 on Board © Nelia Harper
Into the Fog Archival Print

I woke before dawn and stepped out into the crisp air.  There was a fresh layer of snow dusting the grass and trees.  I sought refuge, visiting ‘old friends’ that I have come to know, traveling this well-worn path into the fog.

The sun rose slowly over the eastern plains.  The angle low on the horizon, the light weak.  Clothed in a blanket of fog, the city disappeared.  Gentle and illusive, a warm glow began to filter through the churning moisture.  Long past it’s prime, the tree stood in a shimmering coat of crystalline snow.  Proud, strong and beautiful.

The Hibiscus ~ Egg Tempera 6x6 © Nelia Harper
Hibiscus Archival Print

In the Victorian era, the hibiscus flower represented delicate beauty.  In Hawaii, the hibiscus is often worn behind the ear as a sign of a woman’s marital status and as a symbol of hospitality.  In Egypt, the flower was used as a medicinal calming tea.  As I painted this flower over four months, I was reminded of Buddha’s Flower Sermon in which words are not required to understand its meaning.

For me, the story represents that the world and all of beauty exists in the one flower and that nothing is permanent.  And, that painting this flower contains all the lessons of painting within this one painting.

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.

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.

The Courtyard Egg Tempera on Panel 7 1/8x10 © Nelia Harper
The Courtyard Archival Print

For over 2500 years, the Etruscans have inhabited the hilltop town of Bagnoreggio. Once a haven from marauders, the residents now fight against time and nature. The volcanic tuff upon which the village was built tumbles down the hillside and disappears on the wind. Year after year, they rebuild and repair. And, the flowers continue to bloom. Someday, they too will disappear.

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.
