In honor of my Mom this Mother's Day I would like to give her something. I think she'd love how much fun my sister and I are having with our blogs. After all, my Mom was excited and using Prodigy before any of us thought about using the internet on a regular basis and I'm pretty sure she beat me to shopping online. She died (sorry, I have a hard time saying "lost" or "passed away" when it comes to her) in 2003 before our kind of blogging and social media took off and I think it would have been a dream of hers to have her art exhibited online, floating on the information super highway and inspiring others. So without further ado, I would like to feature an exhibit of my Mom's amazing talent, tell it to your neighbor!
Tracy Kranz Sundstrom: Painting, Drawing and Collage
|Ice in a Glass|
|Collage, my daughter says this is a map with bridges over water.|
|Old Man drawing, I'm thinking of doing something cool with this in my Master Plan.|
|Ladies Fashion by the Pool, she said she painted this from a fashion photo shoot pic she found in a magazine.|
|Still of the Forest, Gouache|
|Jackie O and Her Sister Lee, this painting is older than I am and I cannot believe I just found this!|
Wasn't she an amazing artist?!!! And there's so so so much more to her I hope to tell you about someday. I love her and I miss her so much. Below is a picture of me (on the left) from La Jolla, my mouth dropped when I saw it because I knew there was a similar picture of my Mom (on the right). I went digging and found the picture of my Mom and my mouth dropped again because it was freaky similar, the visor, the swimsuit, the sunglasses... like history repeating itself. We were around the same age but her pic was from 25 years ago, crazy!

I hope you enjoyed the exhibit of my Mom's art, she would have enjoyed getting to show it to you. Happy Mother's Day to you all. Celebrate a mom and/or anything else you want this weekend because life on earth is short!
