Looking Back: 2003

Promoting my artwork on the web in 2003.
Following a multi-week course in creating websites for artists, sponsored by the Seattle Art Museum and Microsoft, I continued to learn in order to promote my work. This piece was inspired by the metal skill saw found in my father’s things upon his death in 1996. The motivation to build the piece was a call for artwork by the Tacoma Art Museum for its annual group show of juried work, and this piece was in the show! This image is a screen grab from an archived website you are invited to visit.

Looking Backstage.
This page of html code was a notch up in my education because I began using cascading style sheets (CSS), look for the line linking to a “stylesheet” — it was an exciting development for me. Of course, there were software programs to help and my choice was Dreamweaver now owned by Adobe. It was not until I was president of the Snohomish Historical Society in 2009 that I embraced the learning curve of using WordPress … and the society’s website is still in use today.
