Hi everyone

I recently went through some of my photos and marvelled at a photo on my phone that I had downloaded from the forum sometime ago.  It was painted by Tracey_B

I double checked with the Mods today and yes poor Tracey is no longer with us and they have respectfully given her a Dragonfly.
Tracey was a good scout - she loved to paint and her and her hubby held an Exhibition which raised funds for BCNA.  
Another Perspective Art and Photographic Exhibition — BCNA Online Network

When she was up for it she almost gave us a painting each week to admire.  Some of her paintings are in the earlier pages of Creative Corner.  Check out her painting of a Black Cockatoo!

Such a talented lady!

Vale Tracey

    Please everyone - feel free to pay tribute to anyone you may have known on here who is no longer with us.  It reminds us about the fragility of it all for some of us!

    Take care

    So sorry to hear of Tracey's passing @iserbrown.   She was such a talented painter and I LOVE that painting of the Tango Dancers.

    What a wonderful idea to have a Tribute Page - for our members who have passed xx

    I am going to go back to Page 1 of Creative Corner & go thru the whole Thread ... it may take a while!! xx

    I often wonder what happened to Tracey's posts.  I am saddened by her passing.
    A Tribute Group would also be nice .....

    Oh that is so sad even though I didn’t know Tracy as she was before my time.
    That painting is amazing and the idea of a tribute page is a good one.

    I always admired Tracey_B's artistic talents on our Creative Corner. I shall miss her work. A talent lost.
    Deepest sympathy to her loved ones.
    Vale Tracey
    Rest In Peace

    Thank you, it's hard yards the reality of Breast Cancer!
    I hope this message finds you as well as expected.....my chronic pain fades into insignificance compared to some

    Yes Tracey's paintings certainly brought pleasure to us

    As to lockdowns,  you would think we'd be used to it however they are wearing and sad to see businesses at breaking point 

    Take care
    Sending you a virtual hug

    Often wonder when different ones drop off!  
    It's difficult.....
    This link shows what a trooper Tracey was, raising finds

    A gifted artist...such beautiful painting and I hope that Tracy and her family are now at peace. I agree with you @Zoffiel about avoiding the hard realities of this disease. I'm not terminal, but I would hate it if people politely "Don't mention the war" (sorry Monty Python). I remember when I was newly diagnosed and "the subject" was avoided by some. I felt almost ostracised as my illness reflected back to some the reality of their own mortality. Vale Tracey.

    I didn’t know her, but this is very hard to read 😢😢. Her paintings are really beautiful. I agree with @Zoffiel
    I hope Tracey is at peace 💟
