A shy sunflower for your August calendar

We have a new store called Sunflower.  Just like the sunflower in the painting, I’m not quite ready to show it off. Our Sunflower store opened on July 10th, and it has been quite busy with shoppers, considering how we haven’t really shared much about it. Really nothing other than what we’ve put in the windows […]

Would you swap this month, for another year?

July 2010… we went on vacation. Four years later, we’re up working until all hours of the night getting ready to open our new store called “Sunflower.” Would I swap out this month, for July 2010? [Back to my easy, uncomplicated life?] Not a chance. July 2014 finds me in the midst of complete chaos, yet so […]

I’ve been part of a conspiracy. (part 1)

One of my favorite things as an artist is to participate in a conspiracy. (A conspiracy to delight somebody with a painting they were NOT expecting.) Lucky me! The last half  of 2011 gave me opportunity to work on four paintings that were each commissioned as surprise gifts. “O’Shaughnessy Castle” was the first one delivered. […]

A whole new view for August (But where is this place??)

An ocean view for the month of July!

Summer is beach season here in South Carolina… Even if you aren’t planning a beach vacation this summer, I thought you might enjoy this view for the next 31 days. This oil painting is inspired by a photo I took of the Atlantic Ocean while on the beach in Hilton Head Island, South Carolina. I […]

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 […]

“sabbath rest” (done!)

Here’s the second painting in my pair of large square marsh paintings. The photo that inspired this painting was one I took during the Bluffton Arts & Seafood Festival in 2009. Have you ever visited the Low Country of South Carolina? I find it to be quite breath-taking. Why the title? About the time I […]

“still waters” (done!)

I finished up two paintings this week! It’s a big pair of square marsh paintings. Watch the slide show above if you want to see its progress from start to finish.
