06/17/2010: "Time for a change"

OK, so I've been wanting to give this site a new look, update the galleries, etc. and I'm sort of stuck on how I want to do it. If anyone has an artist (photography, graphic design, etc.) type website (i.e. one with galleries) that you think is really well done...nicely laid out, professional looking etc. could you please post a link to it in my comments? I'm looking for ideas...and possible a new way to organize my pieces. Currently they're organized by shows, but maybe I should organize them by content type, or sold vs. available...or chronologically...I can't decide. I just haven't done any work on this site in a long time and it needs a face lift.

I'd like to add some more content too. I'm going to use some of the money I made on this last show to buy a video camcorder. I'm going to take a brief video of the current show as it looks in the gallery (before I take it down next weekend) and post it on Youtube. I'm considering doing a short time-release video of a painting from start to finish. Any other ideas of how I could use video to spice up my site???

I've spent all my recent energy on painting, now I'd like to put some energy into the back end of things (naughty!).

Anyway, I'm open to any and all suggestions!

Thanks to everyone who has emailed me suggestions on how to redesign my site (or who sent examples of sites they like). I really appreciate the feedback.
