A Very Special Paint Party Friday for Tracey

Hi, today at Paint Party Friday we are celebrating and showing our support to Tracey who is undergoing Chemotherapy for Breast Cancer.  This lady is so brave and full of wonderful humour.  We were asked if we would like to create something for her reflecting her love of painting cups, mugs etc and then it would be made into a collage to honour this wonderful woman which you can see HERE


For my part I created this fun ATC using mixed media

Then I thought Nettie you have never drawn or painted a cup and saucer in your life, so get off your butt and have a go.


So there you have it, not a patch on the wonderful drawings that Trace does, but it was made with a kind heart.

Raising my cup to you Tracey and all the other wonderful artists at PPF.  Happy Christmas to all.
Hugs Annette xx

Tracey Fletcher King said...

Netty you drew a tea cup as well as one of your collages. I am so touched and you have done such gorgeous work. Thank you from the bottom of my heart for the effort and the thoughts and the constant support you have sent my way. I am having to visit only a few at a time because I keep crying all over the place and yours has tipped me over the edge again. Thank you for making my Christmas so much more special and I hope yours is amazing also. Xx

Karin said...

Happy holidays!

So sweet to think of Tracey! I do love her work as well - especially her tea cups and I'm so honored that she painted mine already :))
Happy Holidays & Happy PPF!
Thank you so much for stopping by earlier :)

Sandy said...

Now tell me something - do you go by Annette or Nettie? I think Nettie looks like you and if that is the name your friends use - well, I'm a friend -----
The tea cup you drew with the Kitty is delightful - precious and will bring a smile to anyone's heart. I think you should draw more tea cups - you are British aren't you!!
Tracey is being surrounded by so many talented friends who obviously love her a great deal. To be so loved is a blessing.
Merry Christmas to you sugar and your delightful family!!
I am holding Tracey in my heart and prayers.

I love the humour in both your paintings, and especially the way you have created her skirt from a cup and saucer - and the sweet little cat examining your foray into cup-and-saucer painting.

Kristin said...

Love love love it! I missed the party (being a bad blogger lately meant that I have been out of the PPF loop) but I am so impressed by the party and what you have all done.
