I am in the process of designing a new website. My old site is perfectly fine for what it is (simple looking and easy to update) – but it is through a company in the UK and my plan only allows me to add 100 images. I out grew it almost immediately. And I can’t find any record that they have charged me in the past few years (or ever for that matter) – so instead ofdrawing attention to my account and purchasing more space – I am switching to “Other Peoples Pixels” for my web needs.
So I have been meaning to do this for 8 months or so. But I can’t seem to sit down long enough in front of the computer to do anything productive. Well, these past few days I realized I need to upload more than 150 new images alone! Holy Jesus! I am currently on image 20 or so. I have painted ALOT this past year! And in my opinion they are pretty good, insightful, intelligent pieces – not flat massed produced pieces of junk churned out just to turn a buck – like I have seen some of my art peers do in the past. I am glad I can say that I am proud of my work. It may take a little longer, but I will not be ashamed to be studied in history if the situation ever arises long after I am gone.
Anyway. I have my work cut out for me. I have not updated my site since February – and I have been using a Flicker site to “communicate” with art dealers, galleries, decorators, clients, etc – to show them my new available work.
I hope to have that finished by Monday. I am verbalizing that deadline to force myself to comply.
I was just digging in my closet and realized I don’t have any red or blue clothing – I actually hate those colors. I also don’t have any yellow colored clothing. So, I guess I hate the primary colors. At one point I owned a royal blue shirt that I would to wear to Louisiana Tech Football games (which I might have tossed out with the divorce), and 2-3 articles of red clothing I would wear to Alabama Football Games – but nowhere else. I just don’t look good in those colors. Goodwill has them now.
So I guess it will be a white day!
