Updated website & online painting schedule change

Last September, I think it was, I boldly stated a goal of revamping my website. Still haven't done that. But I did stay awake all night a couple of nights ago and updated the website I have. Same old website design but newer paintings and news page. Here's the link if you want to check it out: http://www.susancarlin.com/ Responses? Suggestions?

I'm going to try painting online on Wednesdays for a while. I know that's a conflict with other online painters, but I hope some of you may still make it over to hang out with me a while. No session tonight (Tuesday), but I'll be painting tomorrow (Wednesday) at 6 p.m. CST.

Your updated website is very nice, easy to navigate and love the color theme! What did you use as your publishing platform? Are you on a Mac or did you use something else for PC? I am updating our club website...on Front Page, not my choice of platforms..but there for the using, none the same. Might see you tomorrow night, don't know yet.

Hi Susan,

You are such a great artist. I loved looking at your work. Your portraits are amazing. I hadn't seen the one of the girl with her head on the desk.
Just wonderful. It's all good -- everything you do.

Thank you, Pattie,
I'm using Dreamweaver, a very old version. My sister and her friend set up my website quite a while ago and I know just enough to (painstakingly) swap out and add images and text. I get brave now and then and try to do other things, but often go crying to my sister, Patty, to dig me out of the mess I've made. I've had people tell me it's too hard to read with the black background, so tha may be part of what I'll change.... later. I use a PC. Hope to see you tonight when I paint!

Hugs to you, Barbara, for such sweet compliments. I've continued to tinker with the site and added a subscription form for the (very infrequent) newsletter I send out.
Hey, I think it'd be fun to do a mutual Skype/instant messenger sketching session with you! Anyone reading this should check out Barbara's Skype sketches. Way cool.

Wow!!! Thank you so much Susan for the
kind words. Yes! We should do something exciting together. Let's talk about it. This promises to be
an incredible year!!!!

Hi Susan, I love the the clean functional design of your site (although I must admit I'm not fond of the black and purple). I so need to update my website. I designed and created it in Dreamweaver a long time ago, but updating it is so labor intensive. I've been trying to find an online site with templates that I could use instead of doing the redesign myself. I have yet to find anything I really like. Your site is exactly the design I'd like to have, with the easy navigation and just right-sized images.
