here we go again..

geesh. why is it i can't settle on a final design for my front website page? could it be i'm the most egocentric person this side of the universe, or is this just my twisted way of 'doodling?' i know i'll find some fault with it in a couple weeks and start this whole game again. i think the vintage postcards i scored on ebay and acquired from my bud robin make for a cool backdrop, though..maybe i'll keep it for a few months.

click if you wanna

in my quest to perfect my site, i've fallen in love with fuzzy photos. not only do they hide certain imperfections (yes, i have them..and yes, i'm a leo..which explains a LOT) they add an air of mystery. perfection's a slippery slope for me..i want things to look effortless, almost half hazard. that, to me, is perfection. not the polished, not the pretty. achieving this look is hard, though. i guess that's what drives me to keep trying..

graphic designer? i BOW to you! i'm not WORTHY!
i think if i were forced to be a real honest to goodness bread winner, that's what i'd do. you know, i should know photoshop, but, i'm one of those closet 'graphic converter' and 'color it' chicks. hey, whateveh gets the job done..

VERY nice, Dr. B! :)
Well, being partially colour blind, I'm *still* trying to identify the cool green and blue... :) BUT, I do love the layout of it! The photo on the front page is very nice but, in this case, I think you should have gone with the non-blurry photo given the pretty subject! :o) But I do dig the wall collage in the background and I *love* the layout of the gallery (sans the Buy & Sell Art banner at the bottom)!!! I really dug the sparse yet striking feel of that page!!! Wow, I just looked at it again... that looks awesome!

Ohhh, you're talking about imperfections, Missy!?

If I even look HALF as good as you look when I get to be your age I'll be happy. Sheesh! :)
You look SO young, you're in great shape, and your personality is so youthful (like Chuck's!) but I know everyone is their own worst critic...

oh holly. (the check's in the mail, btw..)
i think you must've been drinking a few too many froo froos the night we met. i'm really 78 years old, have too many worts to count, and constantly limp, favoring my left side (don't ask.) it's amazing what a little vaseline'll do to throw a person off..
