Happy 11th Year Paint Party Friday..

a safe blog space on Fridays by the hostess Kristin and EVA 
for us to share creativity I'm sad this now comes to an end..

Huge gratitude to Valerie @ Bastelmania 
the creative star that led me to PPF in 2018 
Thank you for introducing me Valerie.. 

Time did not allow me to put together a collage of work shared on 
Fridays so here's a random selection of new and old in full scale.

First a new page for Valeries theme *Spring* as she 
hosts this March @ Art Journal Journey..

...and some pieces shared previously @ PPF
I'm wearing the paint party hat..

as my take on Mona wears it in 2021..

and a younger me the year before that.

This journal page ALWAYS makes me want to paint.. 

Butterfly on Lavender Inspired by Angela Anderson

Family portrait painted beer mats Inspired by Iris Fritschi-Cussens

Inspired by Emma Pettit

My Dog Freya in abstract

Patchwork Vincent

Vincent's Chair with a twist..

because I love the energy of the message that flows from these pages..

and finally the piece that inspired the one at the top..
*In Contrast* but still with the same feeling and meaning..

Thank you to all bloggers that have taken time out to visit 
and all the wonderful creatives I have met along the way.
See you @ the after party next Friday Kristin and EVA.

Stay safe and creative
Hugs Tracey xx

How sad about PPF. I don't draw, but I am in awe of those who do, like you and Valerie. I really love the pieces you chose to share for your final entry. Your Mona is unbelievable, but so is the journal spread with the paint and brushes. Thanks, too, for the lovely spring flowers you created using Valerie's theme at Art Journal Journey, dear.

I met Valerie through PPF, and eventually I stopped joining in as I got busier with other blogs. I'm sad to hear its ending as I had been thinking about rejoining. But they had a long run, didn't they? And what a lovely collection of art today Tracey. I so enjoyed looking at all these pieces. Your sunflowers are gorgeous for AJJ also. What a nice tribute to Valerie's challenge in so many levels. Thanks for joining us, and I hope you find some art time in your busy life this weekend. Hugs-Erika

Beautiful pieces. Even though I have not joined in recently I entered PPF a week after it began. It is sad to see them go. Have a wonderful day. said...

Lovely collection of art work.

Redanne said...

It is always so sad when something good comes to an end but it has been an absolute delight seeing so many pieces of your artwork here today. The Mona Lisa has really captured my heart, you have done a stunning job on her! The sunflowers are so joyful and I love the flowers in black too.

Thank you for sharing such beautiful art with us, I have really enjoyed my visit! Hugs Anne xxx
