Featured Artist… Nancy Rhodes Harper!

“Sunflowers At The Lake” by Nancy Rhodes Harper

Nancy Rhodes Harper is an artist with a talent for painting people, fun people, quirky cool people… women that you’d like to sit down and talk to because they just seem so interesting! I think this painting is a fabulous deviation for her! I absolutely love this painting, it’s got such nice composition, the sunflowers are so nice and loose yet you know exactly what they are. This is a fabulous painting! Check out Nancy’s website for more paintings, she’s a very talented lady!

Nancy shows her work locally at the Atelier Gallery on King Street, stop in and check it out! She also does paintings for DailyPaintWorks.com, which is a wonderful site, fabulous paintings, if you have the time check it out!

Here is a blip about Nancy from her website NancyRhodesHarperFineArt.com

About The Artist

 Alabama Daily Painter

Nancy Rhodes Harper grew up in a small town in the Ozark Mountains surrounded by paint and brushes in her fathers sign shop. She started painting at a very early age.  Continuing to study in school Nancy received a BA degree in Art Education from The University of Central Arkansas in 1977. After marriage and her husbands stint  in graduate school, the couple landed in Huntsville, Alabama in 1981. Nancy continued to paint and grow as an artist while working in interior design, sign painting and freelancing as an artist. After raising a son with the support of her husband and family Nancy decided to pursue painting full time.
      Nancy has studied with many of the finest artists in the world today, Quang Ho, Kim English, Ken Auster, Nancy Chaboun, Karin Jurick, Carol Marine, Anne Blair Brown, Elio Camacho and The Cumberland Socity Painters (Dawn Whitelaw-Roger Dale Brown-Michael Shane Neal-Paula Frisbee- Pam Padgett).
       Nancy’s love of portraying people while they go about their daily lives while capturing a small moment in time is what keeps her excited as an artist. Using bold color, lush descriptive brushstrokes and very often whimsy Nancy sets about doing what she loves. Painting everyday! 
      Nancy Rhodes Harper’s work is collected in many states across America as she continues to grow and study on her journey as an artist.
