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.
Focus on what is Good… I love plants. Plants are neutral. Plants are beautiful. I like to focus my energy on painting plants. That feels more productive to me than gardening, which is an uphill battle. One definitely worth the fight, but an ongoing, never-ending battle, nonetheless. Paintings of plants don’t grow weeds.

“Gardenia” is the name of my most recent oil painting. It was inspired by a photo I took one warm and dewey summer morning in my backyard. Nothing beats the fragrance of a large mass of flowering Gardenia bushes. I hope this calendar is a reminder to you that this long winter we have had […]
“You win some you lose some.” Since moving to Greenville in 2008, when it comes to my art, I feel like it’s been more heavily weighted to the “lose some” side.

I’m in the home stretch of this painting I’m creating for the 2010 Together For Adoption Conference. It’s called “HAITI: We Have Not Forgotten.” It will be auctioned off in an effort to hopefully raise at least $10,000 to help the orphans in Haiti. Here’s photos from Day 10 and 11… Wrapping up a painting […]
If you’ve been following my blog, then you know I’m in the midst of talking about a painting I’m creating as a donation to the 2010 Together For Adoption Conference, and their efforts to raise money for the orphans of Haiti. Day 8 into my painting called “HAITI: We have Not Forgotten” was the low […]
How do you stay clean while living in a tent? How do you live in a tent with strangers? How do you move on when your life and city has been devastated by an earthquake? I do not know. I’ve spent seven days trying to untangle a very complicated painting. But that’s about my biggest […]
