Website showcasing the art of Bakersfield artist Barbara Reid, who also happens to be my mom.

The earliest version of the site was a FrontPage template. But that required her to contact me to manually edit every time she produced new art. Though I hadn't done it before, I decided I could make something better. Building the next version of the website was my start into database driven PHP.

The result allowed her to update her art and the text throughout her site whenever she needed. A later additions allowed ajax drag-and-drop ordering so that artist visual preference could decide how it displayed rather than just database sorting. Another did some calculations on the color of the pixels and showed color tones most used in each piece (not publicly visible). On each Mother's Day while I was in college, I either added new features or did some other tie-in to the site.
