In honor of my mom's 75th birthday (August of 2009), I am starting this blog so some of her art and sensibility is available on the web.
My mom died of brain cancer (December of 1999). I used to continually feel the grief of losing her, but these days I am continually struck by what she lost. She was a very enthusiastic woman, and she would have totally dug the 21st century. She would have been especially excited to learn that she has a grandchild, Barack Obama is President of the United States, and there are endless websites devoted to fashion, art, literature, antiques, gardening, etc.
Decades ago, she believed in making art more accessible, and she did her best with "publishing" on microfiche. Now, the web makes art very accessible and we can only speculate what she would have done with the web as a medium.
