Adams Wishing Well

Adams’ Wishing Well

This is an impressionistic ink and watercolor painting of a wishing well that sets in our yard between two trees. In reality the trees are, one, an oak tree, and the other a pine tree in which both stand about 40 plus feet tall. Sadly the pine tree has lived out it life and is ready to be cut down. The wishing well itself was passed down from the family, then to a friend, then back to the family again. We’ve had it since 2005.

    This is excellent, I like your story of the
    wishing well also, and when Fraz sees
    this he will be eager to make a wish 🙂

    Have a wicked rest of evening Deb 😉

    • Thanks Andro. I thought I paint something to do with us/me for a change.:-)
      He would if he came by, but from the looks of thing further down, Binky came…which is fine with me. All Wombies are the best!
      Hugs ♥ XXx

  2. I have one in my yard as well. We don’t own this house though so I don’t know if it has any interesting history.

    • It may have a history though. 🙂
      Thanks Wendy, and you have yourself a fantastic day! 🙂
      Hugs xx

  3. Beautifully done Deb, beautifully done!

    That’s nice to have a heritage wishing well. Maybe that old pine tree should have used it.

  5. Make a wish for me! 🙂

    Lovely picture Debs! 🙂

    Love and hugs!


    • Well, I don’t really believe in wishes, but setting goals and working toward them. but I’ll be happy to keep you in my prayers. 🙂
      Love and hugs xx

  6. Nice Deb its good to know the history behind the inspirtion of a painting 🙂 that’s two tall pines! Nice xxx

    • One and oak tree and far taller than the pine. Too bad for the pine tree…I’ll miss it.
      Thanks Sue! xoxo

  7. Beautifully story…..

  8. Ah, such a beautiful wishing well… now you can have all your wishes come true!

  9. I have seen wishing well only in large buildings and atriums and such. The wishes never came true but it was enjoyably wishful to pitch the coin. Reminds on the old song “Three Coins in a Fountain”

    • Well, the best way to use one of these here wishing wells is when you make a wish think of it as a goal and start working toward it.
      Thanks Carl! 🙂

    Oh, a wishing well. Both the art as the thought are so lovely.

  11. You have a well of creativity that never runs dry, Deb!

  12. It’s beautiful Deb…I really like it…although it reminds me a bit of Sadako’s well from the movie Ringu 😉 (the original movie of The Ring)

  13. Beautiful wishing well. Make a wish or three for me…I have doctors’ appointments coming up. Two are with specialists. So, a wish might help.
    Hugs, Barb.

  14. Lovely. I wish you well 🙂

  15. Wishing well? I guess, i need some. 🙂

    • Actually all we need a wishing well for is looks, because we have our prayers and goal. 🙂
      Love and hugs xx
