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.
