Two For Tuesday - Tracy Lizotte

Hello dear friend, it's terrific to be back from my Bloggy Vacay and I'm so happy that it's Tuesday already and time for us to have our weekly fun with art.

If you're a regular visitor you will know that I love to play with art on Tuesdays and I choose one artist to feature each week. Welcome to my new 'Gifters' and hello to those of you who are just popping in for a peek.
If you're new to the blog you might like to have a look at the art which has been showcased on previous Tuesdays, this can be found in the 'Art To Enjoy' section on my sidebar.

Today we are looking at the work of Tracy Lizotte whose watercolour creations depicting children, animals and nature are imbued with such happiness I couldn't help but share them with you.

Now for the game, this is how we play - I present you with two pieces of art, then in thirty words or less you share a thought about how they relate to each other or to your own life.  Enjoy!

I can't wait to hear what you have to say about today's selections and I'm sure you will want to spend some time at Tracy's Etsy store where both of today's pieces are for sale.

Have fun, you'll make my day if you play along.


  1. Oh I love! Something really different and just bursting with life.
    I will start with the second, as this morning when Mr G was getting ready for work, I was doing this exact thing as he sat on the edge of the bed, showering him with kisses after a lovely four days of family time in The Shoebox.
    The first relates to me in terms of the types of female friendships that I have formed and grown over the past 18 months, ones that are carefree and natural and let you be yourself.
    I am off to have a look at Tracy's store now.
    Thank you my lovely. xx

  2. I enjoy viewing art, love leaving comments, but not too keen on games and linky stuff. I'm still really fun...honest! LOL!

  3. Childhood joy and compassion. With no strings attached. I really admire those who can use watercolour so well. I find it so tricky but beautiful. Thank you

  4. Beautiful! Not sure why, but the second reminds me of when I helpfully cut off a boy's fringe in Grade One. No kiss involved but I remember I liked him! {Thanks for your lovely comment and it's a pleasure to meet you, Felicity.}

  5. Nice joyful interruption on this rainy day. Hope all is well and your crisis abated. hug

  6. Oops I realised that I didn't share my reflection on today's pieces, so here we go....

    "Ring a ring a rosy, a pocket full of posies - I kiss you, I kiss you - We all love friends."

    Innocence + joy - hallmarks of happy children - a blessing to behold.

  7. Hmm been thinking about this one all day. I looked at the paintings and thought of children having fun but then it can end in tears. (Reading Wesley the Owl at the moment and it is great. ) Charmaine

  8. These illustrate to me the beauty of the connection siblings have whether it's playing on a summer day or giving comfort when one is hurt. I love those special moments!

  9. It's so good to have you back! I'm just ducking in and out myself as I'm meant to be having my own blogging break (but I find the allure irresistibubble!)

    I need to say this very quietly (sssssh) but I'm not a big fan of the work today. I'm very sorry. x

  10. These are so cute. It's so funny because today my little brother (who's not so little any more) sent me a picture of the two of us. He was 3 and I was 5, and he was hugging me, and I was hugging him, both with huge grins on our faces. There's nothing like capturing childhood innocence and happiness is there? It's infectious x

  11. I think she captures childhood brilliantly. The last painting reminds me of my daughter hugging her brother. It makes me smile XOL

  12. Ah, these capture some little moments of shared joy I've recently witnessed with the 3 pixies. The first picture was danced to the tune of the 'Hooley Dooleys'! J x

  13. God what beautiful pictures. I see friendship, innocence, joy, and play. Beautiful childhood images. They take me back personally, and also make me think of my own children now as a parent, and how happy these types of images can make me.

  14. I love the top picture as I have 4 daughters. I would love it with a little more colour and my girls would so love to have this print. Although I can see myself standing under it with all 4 of them saying 'lets look at the picture shall we - see how these girls are all having fun and getting along!!!'. Maybe not a good idea to purchase it but I do love it. Naomi x


Thank you for stopping by and sharing your thoughts.
Each new comment is a gift - unexpected and lovely.
Although I'd love to reply to each and every one, this isn't always possible, but know that I read and appreciate them all.
