Bella Rogue Bed & Breakfast: The original construction used by the builders in 1909 was clearly artisan in its approach. The fly-fishing lodge uses nature’s bountiful Douglas fir as the walking ground… the floors keeping the original beauty and luster of the honey hued hard wood. The ceilings have been lined with knotty pine and the kitchen cabinets use Oregon’s famous myrtle wood.. The old wood stove in the living room, an antique piano and soft furnishings all help serve to recreate the feeling of being on an authentic and rustic get away. Hand painted signage, bird nests, over stuffed pillows and WiFi properly blend old and new to bring together our Bed and Breakfast, Bella Rogue.
At Bella Rogue we have the pleasure of accepting the talent of artists to show work in our B&B. Currently showing at Bella Rogue is Lisa Scupbach from Scottsdale Arizona.
Her work is a collection of grace and beauty, delicate natural lines reminiscent of pre-impressionistic era. Lisa's paintings emphasize design, emotion and mood. Her paintings have a feeling of narrative, of events that have or are about to transpire. The compositions are dynamic, imposing a sense of immediacy in the viewer.
Her pieces are pensive, and through varied brushwork and subtle nuance of color, the image is imbued with her own sentiment and fleeting connection with the subject.
As an artist, Lisa has evolved at a remarkable pace, establishing a style and sophistication that belie her experience. Lisa's paintings have been acclaimed in a number of group shows, including the "Best and Brightest" at Scottsdale Artists' School (1998 and 2000), the inauguration of the Farmington Art Museum (at which she won a juror's award), and various regional and national exhibitions. She has done numerous commissions for private collectors.
At the Arizona State University BFA graduation ceremony, Lisa was awarded the "Outstanding Painting Student" award. She was featured in the article "21 Under 31" (Southwest Art, September 2000) and wrote a feature article titled "Secret Self Portraits" (The Artists Magazine, March 2003). Lisa was featured in the article "Fascinated by Figures" by Gussie Fauntleroy in Southwest Art's February 2007 issue.
