Website Blues

Ugh. Im slowly moving forward on my newly designed website. Things are going pretty much according to plan, but there are a couple of things I cant seem to get quite right, and a couple of things I want to do, but might not be able to do.

I have serious limitations where web design is concerned. I dont know HTML and codeing, and I know that if I knew this it would be a lot easyer to get exactly what I want. Plus, im poor so I cant hire someone who knows this stuff to do it for me (which would be ideal!).

Anyway, im getting closer to the re-launch. Step by agonizing step.

Twists and Turns

So, every once in a while you get a kick in the pants as an artist. My kick came when a few days ago I discovered the artwork of painter Terry Gilecki. http://www.artwanted.com/artist.cfm?artid=15002

This amazing artist shares my affinity for Koi and the Koi Pond. I have created quite a few mini illustrations of my favorite subject, but when I looked at Terry's work I realized how much further I could push myself.


2.5 x 3.5 inches.

This is the first piece I have created after seeing Terry's koi paintings. I really think I have pushed myself on this compared to my previous work. More depth, more light, and I just love how it turned out. I cant wait to get to work on the next one.
