Becky’s mom passed away two years ago, and since then Becky has put an enormous amount of effort into a book that will tell the story of Dorothy the artist. (Hey there, this is Ben. Becky’s having a hard time writing this one, so I’m going to try and tell the story for her.)
This is part of our 100 Things in 2018 challenge. Make sure to click on the photos!
Dorothy had been an artist her entire life, and left behind decades of work for others to appreciate. She had been blogging her artwork for many years, so when it came time to compile a book of all her work, Becky had a fair amount of documentation, but at the same time knew how large a task it was.
She designed a coffee-table book that captures the breadth and depth of her mother’s work, and tells the story of each piece, often in the artist’s own words. It’s a perfect tribute to a loving mother and talented artist, and a copy lives in the house of every member of her immediate family.
