New web site up!

I am very excited to have deleted my old and VERY outdated web site and to build a brand new web site with a new domain. It is still undergoing contruction, but I'd really appreciate feedback from ya'll (spelling, grammar, format, aesthetics, etc.).

It looks wonderful! It's so easy to navigate and your artwork is beautiful! :)

The site was really great! It was easy to navigate and I understood everything! You really make me wanna buy one.

These are some ideas I had. Feel free to use them but I will understand if you don't want to. Why not have a page of quotes. These can be quotes about animals in general, pets, and horses. Some can be about freedom, and friendship. Offer something where the person can have a quote at the bottom of the painting or drawing :)

On the pages you show some of your drawings, maybe you could tell people why you draw like that and what you are trying to show with those kinds of drawings. Example: Coloured paintings-Trying to show colour and brightness.

Maybe you could put the paragraph in Custom Portraits, onto the home page, because that really tells people what they are looking at and most people dont want tor look through. they will look at the home page, read whatever is there and if it's interesting, they continue, if it isn't they dont.

These are just a few ideas I had. Overall the website was amazing!

Lovely site!
I found one typo on the "about the artist page" You were talking about yourself and your husband:
"... His is also a contractor ..."
I'm sure you meant to say "He is also a contractor

very clear, straightforward site. Refreshing! The artwork is suberb and your personal statement just enough, not too much. Maybe show some rough sketches in the different stages, with the original phote, the steps and the finished product.

GREAT feedback everyone!!! I would eventually like to have a WIP page just to show the progression of a drawing or painting.

It looks great! I love how simple it is. It's so tiring to have to look all over to find the information you want to find. Great job :)
