SCRIBBLE PICNIC ~ STORM

"Stormy Weather" watercolor by Wanda



We have been out of town attending an Memorial Service up North where we served in a Church for many many years.  Even thought we have been retired 10 years and live out of the area, they are still "family" and loved to have Pastor Don officiate the services as loved ones pass away.

That is why my contribution for this week is a painting I did in 2007 for a set of Winter Scenes Note Cards.   We aren't as young as we used to be, and needed a few days rest to catch up.    It looks blurry...but that's just the loose watercolor to give the effect of a storm rolling in. 

Look forward to seeing all the "Storms" for the Picnic this week.  Guess we won't be having it outdoors.....haha. And then again, why not!!!!!

To see all the other storms...just click on the Scribble Picnic Badge on my sidebar.

  2. The weather sure looks snow stormy in your painting. I imagine you are happy to be home after your trip for the Memorial Service.

  3. So lovely Wanda...yes life has many storms and I'm glad I know who's hand holds mine as I go through them.
    Speaking of storms...Thunder and lightening woke us up this morning. It has gone on for over 1 hour and now the rain has come...not the usual weather for us for sure.

    1. Thanks Sue, I've been trying to use the cards you have sent me...but they are hard to let go of they are so pretty. I really like my snow scene cards. Sounds like you are still in stormy weather...we have sunshine today.

  6. I love your stormy weather! Funny how when it’s hot we think about cooler weather. When it’s cold, we yearn for the warmth. For some reason, I love storms. I love weather! Just not crazy about Texas heat!

    1. Oh Linda, that is so true. We are so fickle...never happy with what we have..haha. But I've been to Texas in that heat, and don't blame you a bit.

  7. That snowstorm does look like it's just about there!
    We could actually have used more snow here this past season, instead of just cold temps. But warmer weather is always my preference.

    1. I don't think I would last long in cold snowy weather. I'm a CA sunshine gal.

  8. Wanda, what a lovely scene for your notecards. Even though they're stormy, you've certainly found the beauty in the storm.

  10. I know the feeling of "we are not as young as we used to be" it happens to all of us eventually. Your artwork doesn't have to be new to be beautiful ... obviously you have harbored your talent for many years as this is a delightful painting. Sorry for your loss, but happy you were able to spend time with old friends. Stay well, Wanda ...

    1. Thanks for your words of encouragement. I've been painting for many years, yes...but lately it's been on the back burner. Thanks always for your words and visits.

  11. It's really a wonderful painting, Wanda. I love it. Perfect! Thank you.

    That says a lot about the community you built that so many still are on touch and want Don officiating and you there, etc. :) Why am I not surprised?

  12. That painting captures the mood when a storm is approaching and the look. Love the blue tree and foliage. Is it me or would this make a beautiful fabric? I am seeing it as a pillow.

    1. You know Vee, years ago I had one of my painting printed on canvas, and made a tote bag. You could do the same with a pillow I'm sure. What a nice idea.

  13. It speaks to how cherished you and Don are in your previous community. No surprise there!
    I love this watercolour so much. You've captured a storm perfectly. Just went through a huge one here and I loved watching it roll in and explode everywhere.
