A new month means new possibilities. Which is actually the title of one of Marie Scott’s newest pieces from her “Marsh Memories” series. You can enjoy this painting for the next 30 days by downloading and using her September calendar as your computer wallpaper.

Labor Day 2009: Sandy Sheets for a Greater Good—

I do not like sand in my bed. I do like crisp clean sheets, multiple throw pillows, and a dust ruffle. All of these items must perfectly coordinate with both with the comforter, and (obviously) with each other. To make my world complete there should also be an afghan that offers not only a pop of color, but a […]

The Home Stretch. (Why wasn’t I home sleeping?)

The Home Stretch.  Definition: “The last part of a long or difficult activity.” We are starting to wrap up our final days at The Sunflower Gift Shop this week. It has been “a long and difficult activity” to say the least. But we wouldn’t trade the experience for anything. As this marathon season of experimenting with a retail […]

The perfect view for an entire month!

So many rich memories are wrapped up in this oil painting. I recently finished creating this scene from Bowens Island, South Carolina. I’m really pleased with how it turned out! There is nothing more rewarding to me than taking one of my mediocre photos and helping it come alive again as a piece of art. You can read about the inspiration […]

Trading paintings for a Beach House!

One of the perks of being an artist is that I can do some pretty great bartering from time to time. This summer was my best score ever. I traded a week in this great beach house on Pawleys Island, SC in exchange for a three commissioned oil paintings of various sizes. We’re still finalizing […]
