Besides the environment, watercolor painting, reading, and singing bass with Chorus Pro Musica are a huge part of my life and identity. Both of my grandmothers were artists, and with their passing, it became very important to me to use my gifts to honor them. I try to have a diversity of subjects in my paintings... oceans, boats, landscapes, people in landscapes, rivers, scenes from the city, mountains, and my imagination.
I love living in Cambridge, where I can walk to most of my favorite places. I like developing relationships with these places. You may find me at Algiers Cafe, Trident Booksellers Cafe (I love the 2nd floor view), Club Passim, the ICA, the Kendal Theater, Belly Wine Bar, and walking along the Charles after a concert.
I am looking for a woman who is beautiful from the inside and outside, spiritual, loving, curious about many things, funny, and who has similar values to mine. Being in my 30s, I'm also looking forward to having a family someday. Hopefully you see this in your future as well. Mostly, I hope that we can laugh easily together and share all of life's little and big moments.
I'm trying to save the oceans, one petition and action at a time. I am enjoying painting watercolors, dancing, singing with my chorus, outdoor concerts in the summer, and listening to music over tea and thinking about many things. I recently made my own artist website (ArtofHarper[dot]com) and getting ready for the first chorus concert of the season.
I am a very positive person and try to put that out there in meaningful and encouraging messages on facebook and in person. I hope my words and art inspire many someday.
