Regular visitors may notice that I've given the site a bit of a makeover! I liked the old theme but it set the paintings against a light grey background which I thought robbed some of them of their colour. This was especially applicable to paintings like this: 'After the Sunset'. The new theme sets them all against bright white, which gives brightness while being completely neutral. It's a sleek and minimalist theme, which is how I like them and does not distract from the paintings. I've also redesigned the front page to allow quick and easy access to the galleries. Lastly, the tabs now appear down the left hand side which leaves more room on the page for content - previously almost half the page was taken up by the header. I hope you like the new theme!
I've not painted at all during the Christmas period - mainly because of having visitors and a quite destructive puppy to look after! The place is quiet again and the puppy growing up a bit, so now I'm looking forward to getting out and about painting again. I thought I'd be painting snow at this time of year but it's really warm! I reckon my colleagues in the US would be quite happy to be above freezing at the moment! I hope all is well with you wherever you are! Cheers for now!
