It’s Groundhog’s Day today. I rediscovered these paintings by Scott that have never been shown before. It’s a series of real and imagined creatures that he painted during a trip to the Florida Keys in February 2012. They have an innocent quality, yet simultaneously foreshadow the unseen monster we were yet to encounter at the end of that very year.
Scott carried his paintbox with him everywhere. Frequently he painted at restaurants while waiting to be served or on airplanes to while away the time. Time well spent, always. With his own personal symbols and mythology, Scott’s paintings tell a story of a mystic traveler who sees it all in great detail.
