A Gift and a New Painting

Hello Everyone,
I want to share what I received in the mail from Marcia at In Stillness and Simplicity ~ a set of her beautiful "Blue Skies" tags! These are just so sweet and pretty ~ perfect for spring. Thank you so much, Marcia!


I love the quote on some of them by Ralph Waldo Emerson: "All I have seen teaches me to trust the Creator for all I have not seen."  To visit Marcia's blog, In Stillness and Simplicity, click HERE.


I just finished this painting last night around midnight. It's untitled, but I've had a couple of suggestions for the title from family: "The Birds" and "The Hungry Games"  :)


When I finished it, I realized the kitty's face looks like my Buster - even though I didn't use him as the model! 

Buster Brown



Do you have a suggestion for the title of my painting? Would love to hear it, if you do!

Have a great week!
Until next time,
Cindy

Your bird gift cards - wow how thoughtful of Marcia - and they are really beautiful! I need to go check her stuff out!

Cindy, I just love your painting! And you are right- looks exactly like Buster, haha.

I am thinking another title could possibly be "Patience is a virtue."

Have a happy week, my friend.

Queenie Believe said...

Perhaps "Buster Waits" as a possible title for your lovely painting.
Have a great day,
Always, Queenie

Anne said...

What a lovely gift! and that painting is so sweet although Buster looks like he's either caught the canary or gotten into the cream!!

Have a great week!

Daisy said...

I love the Emerson quote. Your painting does look like Buster. I like it. I think I'd call it, "Patience." :D

Terra said...

How about Garden Kitty for the title.
Pretty tags and I like the quote.

Linda said...

Love your painting...Buster is probably on your mind...that's why the kitty came out looking like him. How about Garden Friends...although I know they realy aren't friends! Love the tags...so pretty!!

Marcia said...

Awh, Cindy, you're much too kind. I am so happy that you liked your tags. It is ALWAYS my pleasure. Don't EVER hesitate to stop by and request any you see on the Simply Tags page. That's what they're there for. Creating and giving is are two of my many passions.

Love your painting. You are so talented. From the looks of it, Buster's in quite an opportunistic place. I'd call it, "Divine Encounters." ;)

Hugs.

Magic Love Crow said...

I love the tags Cindy!! Beautiful! And, I love your painting! Your crow is adorable! Is that the one you were having fun painting? I love your cat too ;o) A name???...how about, "I Wonder How You Would Taste With Ketchup?" LOL! Just teasing! How about, "Let's Play Tag?" ;o) Have a great day ;o)

Cottage and Broome said...

Your painting is so sweet, great job. How about for a title "Making New Friends???". Lovely gift from Marcia, very pretty. Thanks for stopping by, Laura

Jen @ Creating with the J's said...

I'm sure Buster sees it as the Hungry Games. I like the spin off the new books/movie that are out. Great job to you and Marcia!!!!

Au and Target said...

It does look like Buster. How sweet! A lovely gift indeed.

Grandma Barb's This and That said...

Buster's Birds. He's beautiful, just beautiful. And so is your painting, Cindy. I have tried and tried to paint cats, and I just can't -- except from behind! Can't get the faces. Very hard -- you did it! Bravo!

Pearl said...

Blessed Serendipity said...

What cute little bird tags you received. Your painting is adorable. I would title it "waiting patiently" as the kitty looks at the bird with anticipation. Hope you have a great day.

Hi Cindy,

I tried sending you an emal but it didn't go through. Thanks for stopping by and commenting. I'n not going away from blogging just taking a week or two off. This blogging journey is so much fun, it's easy to get addicted to hanging out on the computer.

Suggested title: "Heeeere, Chickie Chickie Chickie."

P.S. Beautiful job on the kitty's stripes, and his mischievous expression.

carlarey said...

Ditto on the great job on the cat's stripes, and his expression. How about "Trust me, I'm a vegetarian..."

EVA said...

He definitely looks like Buster! A charming and lovely piece - and you have so many great suggestions for names too.

Steph said...

I'm a bit brain dead on a Monday afternoon, so I don't have any title suggestions. I just wanted to say that I love the painting, and Buster is adorable!
