Thank you so very much for sharing your gift and love of watercolor and especially of our Lord. The way you weave His story in your art and teaching is wonderful.
Blessing to you this fine day,

Hi Millie,
I, too, just saw about your husband's passing and pray for God to comfort you in this time of change.
Also, I want to tell you I love the abstraction of this painting about after the meeting series. I always enjoy looking at your paintings.

One time I asked you about doing a video, but I never tried to do that. I think I paint too slowly, but I'm thinking it is done via the camera, not on how fast one paints. Is that right?

Sincerely, Mary.

I just discovered your art today -- you have an amazing gift. Your work is just beautiful.

I also read in this guest book that your husband passed away. I am so sorry, and I hope that somehow your art is an outlet that makes everything easier for you.

I really love your watercolor work. It's beautiful. I have been painting in oil for a long time and am thinking of branching out and doing some watercolor. You're an inspiration and seeing your work may just give me that push to take the leap into something new.

Mrs. Millie's paintings are so beautiful. I am so happy to have one in my home. The colors and textures are so wonderful. If you look long enough, you can feel like you are pulled into the lovely peaceful. I especially like the ones that express faith in OUR LORD.

I am so inspired I've started to try watercolor painting. Just watching Mrs. Millie's videos makes you want to try. My husband and I are painting 1 to 2 hours a day. Ha, all I want to do is paint...warning: This is addictive!

God bless you Mrs. Millie! Donna T.

Dear Mrs.Smith,
I am having my daughter to purchase the old familiar house on the hill. I hear the Morning Doves daily where I live, in the woods of Ga.
I am a disabled 73 years young female. I will be placing the "Morning Dove " art on the wall along side my bed to see and dream and recall happy times daily. I now have lung cancer after years of fighting the second round of polio known as post-polio. Your art will make my days left happy and content.

I do so appreciate your beautiful talent. Stay well.
Blessings on your head.

In friendship,



07/17/2013 * 17:23:28

I love your mom's watercolors. She inspired me to pick up my dusty brushes after years of non-use. Also, where can I get your music? I love your voice and my wife would love a cd of inspirational music sung by you.

Thank you and God Bless. :)



06/15/2013 * 08:54:51

Millie- You have such a wonderful gift from our Heavenly Father. I thank you for sharing it. Your videos are helping me with my own art. God Bless You!

I found you on Utube last night by accident. Wow, was I ever impressed. You are my favorite artist without a doubt. I watched you do the Meeting Place. I have been trying to decide which median to use as a beginner, however I have been interested in painting for years. I go to all the local art shows, but I have never seen anything like the demonstration you did last night. I have fallen in love with the music the painting and you. ha.....I am a Christian a committed believer in Jesus Christ and hope to see you in the meeting in the sky. God bless, Don

Hi Millie,
I do not find words to describe how your fascinating and inspirational paintings made me feel. I loved them so much, particularly the impressionistic watercolor series titled “After the meeting”. Your paintings took me to a beautiful dreamy serene world. I am trying to learn watercolor painting for more than three years (self-learner), and I love the loose impressionistic watercolor techniques. I found your teaching videos very helpful; I tried to imitate your “After the meeting”, what a great technique. You are blessed and gifted.. Thank you so much for sharing your gifts.

Hi Millie,

Thank you for your encouraging comment! This is a new and exciting way for me to paint, but believe it has always been there inside me. I just got tired of doing representational paintings trying to always get the colors right and the shapes. I just let go and painted freely. I feel like I am flying soaring through the air, wonderful.

Was nice to hear from you.




05/10/2012 * 14:04:30

Hi Millie,

I've been watching you on You Tube. I love the way you paint and I so love your art work. I especially love the Abstract Art. I've been painting for just over a year. (Abstract) I am finding that it is truly a love affair. When I put paint on the canvas, my heart expands and off I go.
Thank you for sharing your gift with the world.

Many Blessings, Brenda

I just found your work on YouTube and fell in love with water color because of your work. I grew up in Michigan but have lived in Arizona the past 8 years because I could not deal with the ice and snow anymore. I am now 78 but went to art school 60 years ago. I have worked in fiber arts for the past 50 years. I did a little watercolor work in art school but could not control it to my satisfaction but then now use much of the same techniques but by painting on fabric.

Thank you, Don Mettler

03/03/2012 * 15:13:29

Millie, Your work is so heartfelt--the Summertime painting from your Blog entry brought tears to my eyes! I could feel the warmth of the sun and the dry breeze on my arms, like I was really there! What a wonderful gift you are blessed with and I thank you for your videos too, which encourage me to continue splashing with watercolor. Not to worry about "wasting" paint-- pour, spray and let the creativity flow!!!
Thank you, thank you from my heart,

Hi Millie,
I am not sure if you remember me or not. I was a student about 10-15 years ago. I took lessons from you when you lived in Jackson out of your basement in your house. I came with my grandmother Betty Ackerman. I miss painting and wish I could take lessons from you again. I have been trying to paint. I have been experimenting with acrylic and I enjoy it. I love all of your paintings. You are so talented and I miss your advice. I am glad you are doing so well. Take care

Dear Ms. Smith:

I was especially intrigued by the painting, "SUNSET OVER GRASS LAKE".I fact, I think it might serve well as a jacket design for my first novel entitled: AN EARNEST APPEAL: The Execution Of Roxalana Druse, The Last Woman Hanged In New York State.The forefront waterway could very well be represented as the Mohawk River where I presently reside.Though the crime was committed in December of 1884, the setting is closely reminiscent of the rurals in these arts. Should I decide it fits in with thr rest of the graphics (title and sub-titles), could I have your permission to use this work for illustarative purposes? Naturally, you will be credited for the artwork.I thank you in advance for any consideration to this request. (Ephesians 2:8,9).

..hello my fellow artist, Millie, I stopped to take a tour and it was very pleasant. It's nice to see someone painting what is on my mind a lot. I am thinking you must have a wonderful studio to paint in. Also you must have a very vivid repretoire of menatal images plus I wonder if you have traveled a lot? I find that in the last couple of years, because of being disabled, it seems as my expanse of images gathered from fewer travels has limited me to a different types and fewer experiences to paint from. If you get a chance in your busy days give me a "look-up" and a quick chat...I would value that a bunch..douglas S.

Thank you so much for your many comments. I can sense that they are heartfelt, and are certainly heartwarming. I have been doing snowscapes from a single set of photos taken on a magical day in Vermont, a day with incredible light. I also was touched by your facebook invitation. I hope you will not be hurt if i say that i limit my facebook circle to family and a few old friends.

Thank you for your kind comments in my guest book.

I must say that I am constantly in awe of your prodigious output and wide range of styles.

It seems to me that the ArtId community -- and hopefully many other art-lovers -- are affording you the recognition you well deserve.

Hello Millie, I have just spent about a half an hour looking at your work, and I've only looked at about a quarter of the paintings you have on there. THEY ARE ABSOLUTLEY MARVELOUS!!!!!!!!!!! You must paint all day everyday, what a joy. I just kept scrolling down and there was more and more pages of your work. That last piece you put on was beautiful "Victorian Houses" it definatley made you feel warm inside.I'm so glad you enjoyed looking at " When God Paints the Sky" God and Ed Mell are two of my favorite artists!

Thanks so much for your lovely words about my "Geek Series." I visited your site, and your work is beautiful! As you might expect, I especially love the looser, more abstract pieces, watercolor and collage, "The Brown Pitcher," for example. I've tried collage, and failed miserably. I think I'm still trying to "paint inside the lines." By the way, I'm new to this venue (ArtID), so I don't know exactly what piece shows up on my home page. Can you let me know?

Those clouds are awesome Millie. It's absolutely amazing how the sky has a myriad of moods, shapes and colours, and how much clouds influence our own moods, given that clouds are merely drops of water.

As all landscape artists know, a cloudless sky may lift the heart, but a bank of clouds transforms a mere landscape into a masterpiece.

Hi Millie,
Well thank you so much for stopping by my new galleries and checking out some of my paintings! I appreciate your comments. Right now I'm really responding to wintery landscapes so after looking through your galleries my favorite one right now is "winter poetry". It just offers a nice escape for me, and the colors really work. Your paintings feel very alive. I admire painters like you who seem to be really free with your style & your brush work. Makes my works look really stiff. Anyway thanks again for stopping by, hope 2009 is going well for you so far and your art!

Best wishes,



01/26/2009 * 10:22:15

Hello Millie,
Thanks for leaving your comment about my self-portrait. You have a lot of beautiful paintings. I love all of your winter snow landscape paintings.

"Missing You" is one of my favorite paintings on this site so far. it is, as one of my poetry teachers used to say-- his favorite compliment -- "evocative," capturing for one's emotional memory something that is hard to express but somehow familiar. Great job.

Hi Millie,

Thank you for your comment on my art. Yes the forest painting is oil.

You seem to have a lot of creativity, alot of paintings. My favorite one is Autumns Beauty, and it is impressive you painted that out of memory!

I am so impressed with the range of your work. And the colors......they're absolutely gorgeous. From what little of your work I've seen, I had no idea how talented you are. No wonder everyone looks to you as an inspiration.

Hi Millie,

Thanks for the input. I find your paintings to be compelling. I really like your use of the bright colors, I to enjoy using many colors in many of my paintings.
I painted a bridge similar to your bridge to nowhere
and believe there are many similarities especially your thoughts of your experience crossing the bridge.
Have a merry Christmas ! Until later Rob

Wow, Millie
This is a beauty. It would have been easy to make the sunset colors more predictable but instead you painted what you saw. I love it and Peter is right, excellent use of white space.

Hi Millie,

Your new entry really sparkles - I think you've used the unpainted areas beautifully. Very nice!

Aloha Millie,
Thanks for the kind words. Maunaloa Pines was inspired by the island of of Molokai. These trees stand right in front of where my wife grew up as a child. I got lucky with a crazy sunset that really helps the painting.

Keep up the great work!

I'm a new artist and I love your Dancing Waterlilies painting, it reminds me of Monet's work. Maybe you can look at what I got and give me some feedback. I've been doing oils for 10 years and I'm a mother of two young children and it's tricky getting painting done.



07/05/2008 * 15:55:32

Thanks for your notice and comment, it was a fun piece to do. I did look you up and enjoyed the show.

Hi Millie,

I love so many of your paintings, but I will leave you a comment about this one, the apples on rice paper. There is something really nice about this piece that speaks to me. Also thank you for your nice comments in my artid studio.

Hi Millie: I do like your paintings. How much a month do you pay for your site. You have many more paintings displayed than I do. I pay 9.95. I like to paint warm climate scenes but I like your winter ones and will do more as I like yours so much. If you ever come to Minnesota look me up.


  Kim Bunch

02/26/2008 * 00:06:30 are such an amazing artist! The number and diversity of paintings that you've done is unbelievable! You definitly have "a GIFT". Your work is beautiful and inspiring. I already have a few of them, but am hoping to get more!!


  kells ( homepage )

02/23/2008 * 14:01:48

Oh, I meant to ask you if you used oil or acrylic. If this was oil, it would still be wet, would it not?
I really like your work. I am striving to do that style!



02/23/2008 * 13:59:02

Your new painting is very nice. It certainly is 'painterly".
Very colorful, good job.


  Carole Gift Page

Hi, Mother,
I love your new painting, "I'm in the Pink!" The colors are rich and gorgeous and the style is so free and joyous, with amazing energy! Keep up the good work!

"Frozen Stream" is wonderful. I can feel the cold. I'm sitting her ing California's San Joaquin Valley with a misty rain coming down, cold enough to light the fire place, but I would have to chain up and head to the Sierras to find a scene such as this.

Hi Millie,

Your paintings are always great and yes
one of yours has a prominent place in our
living room. Will be sending you email soon.

Hi Millie,

The site keeps track of "hits" to each website: the number of times a page is accessed in a month. You are up there in four figures, along with a select few others.



  Debe Abbott ( homepage )

01/26/2008 * 08:27:59

Thnak you for the kind words. It is always nice to hear, especially from someone as accomplished as yourself.




01/16/2008 * 16:21:44

Hi Millie,

I tried to email you a few times and thank you for writing to me, but they all came back as undelivered. So,here I am!
Your work is fantastic! I love "sea and land" and city apartments.

Maybe we should barter!
Have you been on this site long? Are you signed up with similar sites?
I am very green and unsure as to how to get started.

Hi Millie! (My husband and I are the one's who own "Windward" now.) I just got your Christmas card today and it is BEAUTIFUL! You're so talented. I think it's so interesting that you're an artist too. Your paintings are wonderful and you have a fantastic range of subject matter. I'm a photographer mainly, but also have done some painting and a lot of pencil drawings when I was younger. Hope to talk to you again soon. E-mail me if you like. I'll look forward to it!

Hi Mille,
Thanks very much for your comment about my "Sweet from the Sun" grapes. Coming from such an accomplished artist makes the comment special. I have viewed all your work and it is very difficult to name a favorite. We both paint diverse subjects and it seem we both love COLOR.
Thanks again Mille,

What beautiful Lillies and the colors! Glorious. Monet spent 13 years painting Lillies, and I think you are on the right path.

Great work!
Love the mood of your work.
Red Sky At Morning is very eye catching reminds me of
work painted by Joseph Turner.
