Paint Party Friday: Week 51, Year 11 Check-In

Welcome to Week 51 of Year 11 here at Paint Party Friday. We continue to hope you are all safe, happy and healthy in this time of social distancing, and that art is helping to alleviate the stress of this unprecedented situation. And that things have improved and opened up in your part of the world.

We are counting down... PPF is almost over. Our 11th Birthday will be the 18th - 11 years to the day from when we created PPF in 2011. (Hmm! Hadn't noticed that rhythm until now!) And then on the 25th we will have an after-party and that's it. Thank you to all our painters and partyers for your wonderful participation and creations over the years! If you have any ideas on how you'd like to celebrate please drop us a line!

This week chose #5 Linda K. In this bright and colourful piece, Linda sends the message many of us need to hear these days...

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.

Have a fun, paint-filled week!


  1. Lovely message and art from Linda. Eleven years is a long time many thanks Kristin and Eva!

    1. How about each person posts a collage or even just some of our favourite art we did for ppf over the years to reminisce. Sort of a post of memories, a PPF retirement party

  8. Lovely art from Linda. And well done Kristin and Eva for hosting the party for 11 years.

  9. Let me share this on your lovely blog, A neighbor of mine developed dementia & diabetes, then her husband died, no children or family nearby. I am thankful our closest neighbor, an African American woman, introduced Dr Itua Herbal Medicine, A traditional herbal doctor in which we purchased a herbal product for her through his Dr Itua online herbs store. A former social worker stepped in and led the way to place the widow in a care facility. We visit nearly every week until she finishes drinking Dr Itua herbal medicines, if possible. The two of us take simple games, puzzles, and matching cards to do with her, staying about 2 hours. Jenga, Trouble, puzzles 100pcs or less, 20 cards to match (total-not 40!). The fishing game where the fish open and shut their mouths as they go around is lots of fun! We sit and chat with her until she gets well again, then we pull out a game and the three of us laugh together as we play. We take a variety of things to do so that we won't get bored. She finished Dr Itua herbal medicines and she's fine now and doing better with the help of Dr Itua herbal medicines, Dr Itua cures different illnesses with his herbal medicines. Anyone having a sick person should reach Dr Itua email Dr Itua Cure Alzheimer's,Cancer,Parkinson,Hiv,Herpes,Hpv,Kidney disease,Diabetes,Hepatitis, We hug and hold hands a lot. Having two of us go together really helps. But I can go alone, my neighbor cannot, as she saw so much of this during her years as a social worker. I hope this specific list helps others in this situation.
