A Bucketful of Love

“Bucketful of Love” Watercolor 11×14

A Bucketful of Love.

How much love can a bucket hold?

When it’s holding a little girl, who happens to be your granddaughter, it is definitely overflowing!

Last weekend, I was “helping” one of my daughters-in-law and her sisters get ready for the upcoming wedding of one of the sisters.

As we worked in the barn where the reception will be held on a sweltering hot day, I had the “job” of entertaining my granddaughter so the girls could work.

Once we found a couple buckets of water, we were busy for hours, made a huge mess, and had a bucketful of fun!

I am not a great portrait painter, and I didn’t do my little cutie justice, but it was fun to try, and since it’s #WorldWatercolorMonth, I thought I’d share.

Bucketsful of Cheers & Hugs,

    • that is so sweet of you, but she is so much cuter than I was able to portray – and she became a big sister this week – which has brought a whole new level of joy and love to my life!!! ❀


      • I saw her picture on FB and she is beautiful! I think it is sweet that you tried to paint her. You did a pretty good job! What a blessing to have another little girl in your family! I’m excited for ya’ll!!

    • Oh Gary – she is so much cuter than I painted her, but it was fun trying! She became a big sister this week, so we have been very busy and distracted. She was at our house for 2 1/2 of the best days of my life πŸ™‚ ❀ and then I took her home and got to hold her new little sister for hours this afternoon. My heart is so full. ❀


  1. The main thing in this case was that you and your grand-daughter were having barrels (buckets) of fun, while helping others to prepare for a wedding. The portrait shows how much fun you had fooling around with buckets. Best wishes! Peter
