Considering the beginning spring as a work of art

With this feature, we seek to capture a glimpse of what you and your neighbors have to say about a variety of topics, issues, events – and just plain fun questions.

We are back out on the street, with notepad and camera, randomly seeking out folks who are willing to participate. If we find you, we hope you will want to respond.

We recently visited La Petite Gallerie on Calhoun Street in Old Town Bluffton, where we asked: “How might an artist, in any medium, depict the month of March?”

Babbie Guscio, Bluffton: “Flowers! Lots of flowers. Rebirth, new life. Art and flowers mean a lot to me.”











Kristin Griffis, Hilton Head Island: “By using cheerful colors because they’re excited about spring.”











Karen Dontas, New Jersey: “We’re from up north, so we think snow.”











Pete Dontas, New Jersey: “March 1 is my birthday, so whatever it is, it would be about me.”











Campbell Guscio, 9, Bluffton: “Maybe leprechauns of clay, a painting of someone finding a four-leaf clover, or maybe a painting that says ‘Happy St. Patrick’s Day!’”
