Washington

My mom is an artist, she sacrificed quite a few years to raising her 4 daughters instead of painting, however, and that is one of the reasons I am so happy for her that she was offered a contract for representation by an art gallery in Washington, Mo. I had the day off work on Columbus day and we happily spent the afternoon driving around and enjoying the Fall colors and making our way to Washington so my mom could switch out some paintings. We ended the day by catching "The Duchess" at the movie theater - it was fabulous.


My favorite of her series of paintings of the Scottish countryside.

Congratulations to your mother! That is so, so wonderful!!

Does she have a website?

Yes, she was so excited. Up until this point she has been showing in small art shows, so this meant a lot to her. I am talking to her about starting a blog and getting involved with the internet art community, but I think she's still a little bit dubious about the whole thing. She's not very computer savvy, unfortunately!

I hope you can talk her into a blog. The online art community is so kind and supportive :-) And it's easy, right? Especially blogger :-)
