Her art friends call her the Water Witch.

Cristall Harper paints water like no one else. It’s a specialized process of her own invention. She begins with an acrylic stage. This is where the abstract mark-making happens. Next comes the oil paint stage where light and sparkle are added. Don’t expect to learn all her secret techniques here, or it wouldn’t be magic!



Harper’s dog portraits have always been favorites with Gallery MAR collectors, and what’s more fun than a happy dog painting?  Answer: a painting of a happy dog playing in the water!  Visitors to the gallery reminisce about their favorite dog-in-the-water painting from years back, and that’s saying something.







After a well deserved break from her heavy load of Christmas commissions, Cristall is excited to return to her studio in happy abandon and make more magic.
