Hunter and I were able to visit Grand Teton National Park and Yellowstone this past fall during the peak of the aspens (and elk rutting which is another cool story). I wanted a picture to paint. This one was fun for me considering I am normally scared to death of painting trees (and still could use some practice). This painting will find a home in Hunter's office. I found the perfect frame for it this week! I had to make room in my "studio" for another couple projects underway. I started this one before the holidays!

Last night I finished Jill's watercolor. It took me a couple tries to get it right. You can see the photo I painted from below. I took it on a visit to Seattle this past October. You can also see the first version I painted (I was never happy with it). Look closely and you will also see my foot warmer.

I love a good painting progression. This one is extra special not only because it is for one of my college-friend-sorority-sisters (that would have been enough) BUT also because Paula is my first Etsy sale! This is a picture of her first house and her pup, Hendrix. Oh what fun!
This blog began in 2007. 7 years later, I am adding a website and officially open for business with Etsy! I am thrilled about FINALLY taking the leap.
