Fun with Missy, one last time.

In my art folder, I had a drawing of Missy that I had wanted to paint for a little while.
Then she passed away and I couldn't bring myself to paint it.
After visiting the All About Art show in Islington, and falling in love with Derwent Line Painters, I decided to use them to paint Missy's drawing.

So off I went to the summerhouse and took the drawing with me.
My new little companion, Paddy, came too, but for some reason, he left me to it, coming back into the house.
So I had fun with Missy. Just me, her and the paint, in the summerhouse, one last time.
It did me good. The Line Painters are such fun; while I painted, I remembered the fun times the Chief and I had together.

Here we are then,

Fun with Missy

and little Paddy, here he is -

The summerhouse is getting a remodel - to go with this new chapter in our lives. When it's finished, I'll post some pics.
Hubby is almost back to his old self - and I hope to return to regular blogging in September.
For all those who've stuck with me on the blog - and kept us close in thought and prayer - Thank You.


  1. Beautiful painting Pat. You have really taken to these Line Painters and look forward to seeing more of them :-)

  2. aw, I love your painting of sweet Missy. Paddy is a little cutie too. Looking forward to seeing pictures of the remodel on the summer hous

  3. Hello Pat, good to see you and your new little pooch.
    I remember what Missy meant to you, the way I was with my Angie. We move on though and keep those memories in our hearts.
    I too haven't done much blogging but hope to be back in it.
    Your painting of Missy is adorable, as she was.
    I'm glad you have a new companion . hugs,
    Barbra Joan

  4. Pat, I have been away from blogging for a while and was not aware of this bad news. I am very sorry for your loss.

  5. Perfect title Pat, it's a painting full of joy , she looks so happy, perfect celebration xx

  6. Nice to meet Paddy, he looks alike Missy. I hope a lot of beautiful things for you and Paddy! Arianna

  7. Missy is Beautiful!
    I think Paddy knew her spirit was filling your heart, and maybe the summer house. He has an amazing face as well.
    I'm glad to read your husband is on the mend. Prayers for your both.
    I look forward to reading more of your blogging in September.

  8. Ah Missy, what a lovely painting of her lovely face! I am glad to hear your hubby is doing well, and I hope to see you back in September!

  9. This is a very special and lovely painting.

  10. This is a lovely and commemorative painting by Missy.
    What a lovely dog is Paddy. I hope (and know) that Paddy will give you as much pleasure as Missy.

  11. Oh Pat - I am so sorry about Missy. I am glad that you have Paddy to comfort you. One doesn't replace the other but it does help to have another one to care for her. So glad your hubby is doing better. Take care friend. Glad to see you are back and will be posting more in September.

  12. Hello dear Pat,

    I'm sorry I haven't kept up with you but I have had problems in my life.
    I see you have lost your beloved Missy, bless her heart, I know how much she meant to you.

    So I am glad to see you have a new poochy, he looks adorable. I don't know if I could have gone on if it hadn't been for Algie. he is my life.

    I'm sorry of your husband hasn't been well too.

    Love and Hugs
    Your old friend June xxxxx
