05/13/2006: "Salmon tastes good!"
I haven't written in awhile, I worked in the gallery this afternoon and I think I prefer it to openings. Fewer people trickle in but they stay longer and I'm not such a spazz. I met a really cool woman who said she wants to buy the fiddlehead painting if it doesn't sell by the end of the show and left her contact info (hurrah!) also met one of the plein rein painters, they meet every saturday and go out somewhere new to paint. I want to join them but I get so shy.
Anyway, I've been looking at a ton of artist websites (layouts and designs etc.) for a possible redesign of my site. I like the idea of using different style sheets for different parts of my site, so the navigation stays consistent but they don't all have to look the same. Here's my most recent attempt. It has mostly dead links, I don't make it functional until I've picked a final design. I only end up using 5% of what I throw together but I just *love* making web pages!
Oh, and I got a nice email from the president of the Alaska Women's Network today, they are using one of my images on their homepage...the email made me feel really good.
What else? Oh, it finally feels like summer here. Up until yesterday we've been having winter weather, but it turned beautiful overnight. Last night my neighbor brought me over a big bag of salmon fillets that he had caught only a few hours earlier. I *love* this time of year in Alaska!
