Maple Hill by Nancy Rhodes Harper

I painted in our historic cemetery last Saturday. The beautiful old headstones and monuments have something that can't be reproduced today. The patina, the designs so beautiful showing how much the families loved ones meant to those left behind. The cemetery was a peaceful place to paint and the reverence I felt for those resting at Maple Hill was all encompassing. 8x10 oil on linen ©2011 NFS at this time.

Little Red Corvette by Nancy Rhodes Harper

Last fall I had the privilege to take a workshop from Tim Horn (a fabulous California artist). The workshop was at the Sandy Springs Art School. Tim was a wonderful instructor and I learned so much. One of the participants of the workshop owned this corvette and her husband brought it for us to paint. I wish I could have purchased Tim's demo but it wasn't in the cards. This is my own version of the car. This painting will be featured in an ad in American Art Collector Magazine where I am included with a wonderful group called Contemporary Fine Art International. The ad will be available in Oct or Nov. I am excited! Thanks for looking 6x6 oil on hardboard ©2011 Purchase price $200.00 from DailyPaintworks.
