Last night a wonderful mother, teacher, artist and friend passed away. Tracy was an extraordinary woman who faced both the joy and heartache of life with courage and grace. She raised two beautiful children, traveled the world with her husband Jim, and taught children to love art as a teacher at a wonderful little preschool. Tracy was the author of a very special art book, Picture the World: Children’s Art Around the Globe, published in 2000.
The image on the right is a painting Nora made with her in 1993 when she was just three. Tracy had it mounted for a community art show, and it continues to hang in Nora’s room to this day. Today, we took a photo of the painting and turned it into a sympathy card for Tracy’s family. It turned out so beautiful.
