It Is Creating That Has Kept Me Alive
Written by Karen S. Parker, Sarasota Herald-Tribune FL 2/10/02   
Artist Lois Bartlett Tracy may be 100 years old and legally blind, but she isn't about to let a little thing like that keep her from writing about art and her life as a painter.

When at 98 she could no longer see to paint and her hands were too weak to grasp a brush, Tracy turned her attention to writing about the exciting life she has led, publishing her work in magazines.
