     Di Anne Tracy's paintings portray the sensual beauty of nature.
Upon viewing her images, there is a tremendous amount of satisfaction to the 
mind's eye of the observer and this pleasure is long lasting.  "I love to paint 
nature...all of it...birds, animals, flowers and peaceful landscapes because, as I 
paint, I can retreat from the business of life."
