SCRIBBLE PICNIC ~ WATERING CAN

 Showers of blessings from the Heavenly Watering Can!  

When I was a little girl, my mom said when it rained the angels were taking a shower...that is where this idea started from.


Several years ago I did this painting of a watering can for an Art Challenge.  

Do you have a watering can?

To see all the other watering cans, just click on the Scribble Picnic badge on my sidebar.

  1. What a sweet thought...hadn't heard that one before re. Angels showering. My parents used to always say the rain was Heaven's tears.

    Lovely sketches, Wanda! I'm glad to be back on board with Scribble Picnic. :)

    1. Good to have your back! Yes, angel tears probably are a more popular version. I guess everyone's opinion is good.

  4. My story was that when it rained the angels were crying ... sad, I know, but I grew up during WWII and the Korean war and to be honest, there is still plenty for the angels to cry about. I love your paintings ... your art seems to be an outlet for your thoughtfulness.

    1. Andrea, I had the same thoughts, I thought angels were crying too!

    2. I was a baby in WWII, and I know all wars are sad times, so understandably you could say angel tears. I think tears of rain, or happy showers are OK.

      However, if you want to be Biblical..Angels were always praising their Creator in heaven, saying Holy, Holy Holy is the Lord God Almighty. But we can have fun with our art, can't we?

  6. I love it! I was told that God was bowling when there was thunder. :) I guess I was a bit of a melancholy child because I always thought the angels were crying when it rained! I like your version much better.

    The painting is so wonderful, I really love it and I nearly did something like that! I have a few watering cans, but they are plastic. I'm always on the lookout for some vintage ones at thrift stores.

    1. HaHa...yes we all have heard stories in our childhood of rain, lighting and thunder...What would childhood be without them. I love them all. But at I mentioned to Andrea...the Bible tells us angels true mission....praising and ministering. Haven't we all felt the touch of an Angel???

    2. I'm quite sure I've felt the touch of an Angel, a few times in my life. :)

    Both pieces are lovely.

    1. Thanks Connie ~ I think there are many versions of rain, thunder and lighting and where the ideas come from...children's stories I think.

  9. I really love the idea of the angels taking a shower but according to the weather guy this weekend will be more than angels showering...we are suppose to be in for a deluge...maybe too many angels in the tub at the same time...(:0)

    1. HaHa...what a picture you paint. I see that the Dodgers and Giants will be facing rain. Someone stole my Dodgers...they are playing like 1st graders. Come back Dodgers!!!

    2. HaHa.. sorry about the 1st graders...maybe a bit like our Giants too.
      Really don't want rain this weekend but if it brings snow to the mountains then bring it on...

  10. We had some very clean angels here today. Thankfully, the wind came afterward and dried them off. Great pictures - both of them.
