WALLED GARDEN © Scott Morgan 2013
These 3 paintings were done this week from the bed studio. Scott grabs his brush and paints any time he has a smidgeon of energy. The stone or rock wall theme has emerged as a new direction in Scott’s work. Here we have a pathway to infinity surrounded by what Scott says is “lots and lots of flowers”. Another theme that has been developed over the past 8 months is the puffy clouds you see below in “Floating Palace”. I love how Scott does not feel compelled to keep the clouds white and the sky blue. In Scott Morgan’s paintings, as in his life, anything is possible.

The painting below was done especially for me. It’s happily not the first painting Scott has given me personally but it is one I will cherish the most because of the intimate inscriptions he wrote on the back of it. The theme of jeweled chests has been one Scott has depicted before. I wonder if he is thinking of his many actual antique chests back home, or the little jeweled boxes he collected over the years? In my mind, the treasure chest is a metaphor for a heart that’s true blue. Like Scott’s.
