Happy Birthday Mom!

Today is my Mom’s birthday, Happy Birthday!  She really should have been born on April Fool’s day as she starts to celebrate and trick people a week prior.  My Mom is an extremely talented artist, she is currently painting with pastels.  The photos above include (from left to right) my Mom; then my Aunt Barbara, my Mom, and Grandma.  Yes, that’s right, my aunt was sporting a red afro.

You can see more of my Mom’s artwork on her website, Karen Cotler, which I need to update.

Here are a few of my favorite paintings she’s made.  (left to right) Cape May, a beach town Brian & I got married in, my Mom’s favorite things including scrabble, and of course Zabars her neighborhood deli hangout growing up in New York City.

  1. I feel fortunate to know your mom. She's a beautiful and talented woman. I was actually beating her at Scrabble, although we left the game unfinished, meaning she will ultimately win since I suspect she won't be inclined to help me anymore. ;)
