Endurance. What is YOUR story?

My most recent “Endurance Story” happened in Charleston, SC. In the middle of a sun-baked park. Surrounded by several years of my artwork. Protected only by a 10″ x 10″ tent. For an endless string of 17 straight days.  By the end of DAY ONE — all I could think was… “How did this ever […]

For once I listened…

To my own advice. Here is what I told everybody. For an entire month. The month of March, 2017. “You cannot do it all. Choose wisely. Because balance is a myth.” Which is WHY… My June 2017 computer desktop calendar is SIX. DAYS. LATE. This same monthly calendar, which I have published for over SEVEN […]

June is here! (new month = new calendar)

We made it to Charleston!

Today marks the opening of the 2012 Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibit So I thought it was appropriate to show a photo of my most recent oil painting called “Society Street”  — a portrait of just one of Charleston’s many beautiful historic homes. If you’re visiting Charleston for either of the Spoleto Festivals and love […]

The cutest cottage on Sullivan’s Island

The owner of this adorable home located on Sullivan’s Island, South Carolina, let my husband Tim and I stay here for a night during the 2011 Piccolo Spoleto Festival. This was not a friend or relative, or even an acquaintance who loaned us her home. She was just a generous woman, that God used to remind me […]

Reflections on our great Charleston adventure

After spending 16 consecutive days sitting in Marion Square during Charleston’s Piccolo Spoleto Outdoor Art Exhibit, here are a few thoughts and observations I came away with. I should definitely keep painting. I had an overwhelming response to my COLOR, subjects, and style. I am definitely not doing any more 2-day outdoor art shows (at […]

Sunrise over the Cooper River Bridge

COOPER RIVER BRIDGE • 16 inches x 12 inches • ©2011 Marie Scott “Gilligan’s” is painting number ten in a series of ten pieces I created to remember my a trip to Charleston, SC. This painting was inspired by a photo I took on our last morning in the city. We got up before dawn so […]

Eat Local Fish.

“Gilligan’s” is the ninth painting in my series of ten snapshot paintings from Charleston, SC. The photo that inspired this painting was taken at dusk as we walked the city looking for a place to eat. Now that I’m intimately aware of every last detail of this restaurant, I’m definitely inspired to EAT LOCAL SEAFOOD. […]

Lots of people must be praying! (news from my booth at Piccolo Spoleto)

This family from Charleston were my first customers of the show on the opening day of Piccolo Spoleto,  purchasing SUNFLOWER PATH.  They hung it up right away in their family room and then decided they needed one more for their living room, so they came back later that same day and bought a second one the same size–SALT MARSH! […]

putting all my chips on the table (and then some)

Today’s the big day. We’re heading to Charleston for the Piccolo Spoleto Festival which is the cross roads for my painting business. I’m praying that this show will give me some clear direction as to whether or not I keep pursuing my dream of becoming a famous painter, or whether (for this season of life) I’m […]
