A Tea Party for Tracey



Today at Paint Party Friday we are having a Tea Party for Tracey Fletcher King who has for the last 5 months been in a battle with breast cancer.  For most of the time she has still managed to entertain us with stories of her experiences with leftie and the shocking after effects of chemo – namely not being able to devour chocolate and discovering a taste for egg nog!  My hat off to you Trace.




I have two pictures first with Trace supping her favourite tipple – tea.  We all know she loves tea cups, mugs and teapots. If you think it shows an uncanny resemblance to lady Gaga, you’re right.  I was googling the Mad Hatters Tea Party hoping for inspiration and saw the photo so I did a fair representational pic.  I sent it off to Kirsten and Eva on Monday and wasn’t entirely happy with it so yesterday and this afternoon I did this picture below.  It had to have Sinus and Phantom Steve in it as they have entertained us over the last couple of years with their antics in the Fletcher King household.


It is full of positive hope, as Trace is dancing with them and Phantom is able to annoy Trace by wearing pink!  And Sinus is able to act the clown.  Can’t you see she is planning what delights that will set Phantom off in a spin?

So Trace here’s to 2014 and good health and lots of tea and chocolate and the egg nog can be poured down the toilet with relief.  Thanks for all the chuckles, giggles and blog love you dispense to us all.


You Rock!

  24. I love them both a ridiculous amount and seeing Phantom in pink has made me laugh through the tears of joy that you have bought on. Both paintings are special and have made what is normally a crappy chemo filled weekend fly past with hardly a care. Thank you Sharon. It has meant the world to me xx
