Dahlia #2 (from my garden!)

DAHLIA #2 (FROM MY GARDEN!) • 12 inches x 12 inches • ©2011 Marie Scott I LOVE DAHLIAS! I planted some dahlia bulbs last winter in a plastic container and started them in my house. (I think that was actually a waste of time, but I’m not really sure.) They did survive, and grew to be […]

Since then, I have spent the last eight years reminding my husband Tim that I would like a […]

Greenville’s Premier Art Event of the year — Open Studios— was taking place. “Was it a success?” That is an interesting question. I guess the best answer to that question is “it depends on […]

The art of Thankfulness

Earlier this month, I spent a morning showing the 4th graders at Heritage Elementary school some of my paintings. How can I resist going back again next year after receiving an envelope overflowing with these gorgeous hand-made thank you cards? It really does make a difference to tell somebody thank you. Especially when you draw […]
