Art is much less important than life, but what a poor life without it! ... Robert Motherwell

Wonderful Support!

I feel so honored to have had so many wonderful and supportive visitors here recently!!! Thank you to everyone who has considered me a friend and to those who are commenting on my blogging efforts. I just love living, walking with my Lord, and painting!!!! I know you haven't seen a painting posted here in several weeks, but rest assured, I am still living (LOL!) and am still walking with my Lord. And Lord willing, I will continue to do so, until I can get back up, painting and posting again. We are in the process of moving and tomorrow my computer connection will be disconnected. I will miss you all! I will be back up in a couple of weeks. So, "pencil me in" to your calendar and come back to visit then.

Support for a Striving Artist

We all have those days when nothing seems to go right. We are not alone! From personal experience, when I am feeling this way I know I need to dig to look for the goodness and blessings that are in my life (right now, today). I always find that I do not need to dig fact, I have never needed a shovel to find it. God is so good!!!!
I recently found a "new" artist trying to enhance her skills in watercolor and honestly I enjoy her work alot. Very fresh! Visit Doudy Sketche. I think you will enjoy!!!!!

Meet Miss Kitty!

Some of you read my earlier post about Miss Kitty adopting our family and how we were sure she was pregnant. Well, to our delight, she was NOT pregnant, just gaining weight. Lots of weight!!!!! She really is a plump kitty.

Here is her favorite sleeping position.....on her back.

She also is a real sweetheart and we have grown to enjoy her antics very much. I guess you could say she is one of the family now.

A Request for Patience

I am so thankful for those of you who are loyal readers of my blog and who enjoy stopping by to visit and see what I've been up to in and out of The Water Bucket Studio. Thank you, thank you!! If you are one of them, then you have noticed and probably have been disappointed as of late to find that when you arrive, nothing has changed. No new posts! What is wrong with this picture?!
Between the busyness of life, the process of major decisions in our family, illness, etc., I simply have not had time or energy. Sound familiar? If so, then my loyal readers will understand and will keep coming back just to check in.
We have been blessed with a career change that has been much wanted and desired for several years now. It was a huge decision for us. But when you leave it at Jesus' feet and let Him be your guide. What grace!!!!!
The big changes are to take place in the next month and so I will be taking some more time off from my blog in the meantime. Please be patient!!!! And please check back soon and I will give you the full story. If the Lord wills, all will go smoothly and we will just step into place.
