Hunter's Grand Teton Aspens

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!

Jill's House Watercolor

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.

Paula's House featuring Hendrix!

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!

Announcing: Shelley Scarbrough Art

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.
