Welcome to Week 24, Year 11 of Paint Party Friday.
This week we are doing things a bit differently... Instead of letting the random number generator choose a spotlighted artist, we have decided to pay tribute to our fellow PPF-er and dear friend, Tracey Fletcher King. Many of you know that Tracey bravely battled cancer for many years, and we were heartbroken to hear of her passing this past week.
To know Tracey Fletcher King was definitely to love her... How could you not? She had a very special gift for turning the ordinary into something extraordinary. In addition to being an amazing artist (and PPF-er from the earliest days), Tracey's kindness, sense of humor, intelligence, and generosity made her a very bright light in our community. She freely and eagerly shared her talents, time, and even a "cuppa" with the many friends she so easily made from around the globe.
Our deepest sympathy goes out to her loving family (that many PPF-ers knew as "Sinus and Phantom"). We feel so blessed to call her our friend and will miss her dearly.

As always, please make sure to use your post URL address NOT your blog home page URL address as there are many late visitors who get confused as to which post is for PPF when they arrive (after Friday) at your website. If you are unfamiliar with Mr. Linky, an explanation of how this tool works can be found on Year 1, Week 1.
Wishing you a week of love and paint...
