Art appreciation: to my kin and to Adair Co. icon, Henrietta Scott

So happy Cousin Matilda found her father's art - which he inherited from his mother with that huge boost he got from 'Ms. Henrietta.' She - Henrietta Scott - has her stamp deep in everyone's heart who has ever known her. - MITZI BAULT - (whose big idea for today is 'living is giving,' and encourages all to 'pass gifts along'

Just about every time I visit the Waggener home I can spot beautiful art throughout the house.

Sometimes it's on the wall, propped up on something, or in the little shed out back.

I really don't know about Uncle Ed's ability to paint and draw. His talent comes out in writing great stories.

Cousin Pen's talent shows in computers, cooking, and photography.

Cousin Tom got the art talent from his wonderful Mom, Linda, with the help of Henrietta Scott.

When you have had lessons from Ms. Henrietta, you had the best art teacher in the world according to my grandson, Jacob Cowan.

I do believe that around the age of 10 years old he would have taken her away from husband Jeff, if he could.

So many Adair County students still keep in touch with her. She has her stamp in everyone's heart who has ever known her.

I would love to see my Linda get back to her art.

She has such talent. My walls on McKinley Lane could use any of the her art she wants to pass along.

I do believe if God gave you a great talent, you should use it.

I will be waiting.... Please edit. Love you all !!!! --Mitzi
