Up up and away... PPF

It's been quite some time since I joined in with the Paint Party Friday link and even though I'm not totally happy with this watercolour, I've decided it's better to just put it out there and enjoy seeing everyone. 
I've missed you.
My head wasn't particularly in the right space for painting, but I decided that I needed the therapy that painting can provide. 
The reason was that sadly we have had to say a final farewell to my husbands Mother, my fantastic MIL (who never interfered in all the 40 years that I knew her) and my children's fun loving (anything goes) Grandmother. 
She had been ill for quite some time, but it still so painful to say goodbye.
She would love the fact that she managed to reach her 87th birthday...even if it was only by a few hours.

I have just looked back to see when I last joined in with the PPF link and it was back in September! 
My goodness how does the time go so quickly.
If you'd like to see all the entries in Eva and Kristin's PPF link up then click here.
Thanks ladies for hosting and I hope you'll forgive my absence.
Take care everyone and have a great weekend.


  1. Yay, so happy to see you back, I have missed visiting your creative world!
    Your artwork is super beautiful and enchanting, such sweet souls, love the details as well on the basket. Sending lots of comfort and peace to you and your family for the loss of your loved one! Hugs!
    Happy PPF

  2. Beautiful art. Sorry about your MIL, saying goodbye is never easy. Happy PPF, hugs, Valerie

  3. Sorry to read about your MIL, it is never easy to say goodbye ... but it sounds as if she was a lovely person - you must have lots of good memories.

    I do like your artwork and the colours you've used.

    Sending you kind thoughts

    All the best Jan

  4. Beautiful watercolour. So sorry for your loss.

  5. My condolences to you and your family on your loss, Denise. A non-interfering MIL and a fun-loving Grandma is a rare treasure indeed.

  6. a fun and delightful piece Neesie- I love how the cat is weary of the bird instead of vice versa:):)
    So sorry to hear about the passing of beloved mother, MIL, and grandmother. You all will have so many fond memories to keep in your hearts. I've missed you and happy to see you back. Happy PPF!

  7. I'm very sorry for your loss. The painting is sweet and whimsical.

  8. Thinking of you all from across the waves - I'm sure your fun loving MIL would have appreciated the cheery coloured balloon this week.

  9. Hi Nessie-

    I haven't been by for a bit but glad I saw this piece. Love it! What an expression on that kitty! Hugs-Erika

  10. you painted that beautifully!
    the loss is always painful and takes time to mourn!
    hugs Elke

  11. So sorry about your MIL. It's wonderful that you got along so well. That is a true blessing. Love your art therapy. :)

  12. Hi sweetie, so sorry to hear that she has passed. I hope your hubby is doing ok. It's so hard to lose anyone even when they're old and in pain. We're losing my uncle with Alzheimer's soon too, I feel your pain. It always feels so weird to be both grateful that they're not in any more pain but so tragically sorry that they're not with us here on earth anymore. Hugs my friend, glad to see you get your paints out. Although it seems highly inappropriate to mention, I did promise to remind you. My first giveaway will start this Sunday so if you want to go subscribe I'll automatically sign you up for the giveaway, K? Hopefully you'll win and I'll be able to send a cheering up prezzie to my good friend. Hugs to you Neesie, keep your chin up and tell your husband I'm so terribly sorry he lost his mom.

  13. The Cat (in the balloon) and the Birds . . .Love it. I've missed you. I love you art. There is absolutely nothing wrong with this, but I think the Cat would think otherwise. Blessings, Janet (welcome back)

  14. This is so wonderful - made me smile all over. I am not sure that kitty kat wanted to go up so high!!
