I am inspired by all the FOFs who use the web to showcase their talents and businesses. We didn’t grow up with computers, like our children, but we’ve embraced them with the enthusiasm that we’ve embraced most everything else in our lives.
FOF artist, Karena Albert, is using the web as an “art gallery.” Her blog, Art By Karena, features artists who create everything from one-of-a-kind decorative pillows to elegant stationery. A member of the Kansas City Artists Coalition, Karena paints primarily in oils. I love the quiet and hopeful moods of her exquisite paintings. “I enjoy promoting artists of all genres,” she told me. “Often I do an interview with an artist who I feel will appeal to my readers.”
Her blog also features a popular (almost) monthly “Artistic Giveaway” and original articles about renowned Kansas City area museums. “It gives me a great feeling to know that my blog appeals to artists, interior designers and architects, and others. It has been one of the most rewarding experiences of my life,” Karena says.
