New Year's Eve Photoshoot

This was taken in Kristina's studio while she's working on reference shots of me she took this morning. We're both working on portraits of one another for a show in February. I don't know what she's up to but I need to start thinking about mine. The show is called 'Artist Couples' and our paintings of each other will hang side by side. Opening at the Lincoln Arts Project in Waltham.

I hope everyone has a wonderful and safe New Year!

Hello (Again) to the Internets

The last year, I've been talking a big talk about rebuilding a new website. The old one did its job for many years but had some seriously old coding ideas. It looked like crap on any phone or tablet, errors everywhere, design flaws...it was hurtin'. It actually actually used frames which will give you an idea of what kind of shape it was in. It's okay, I know. You can go ahead and giggle. I'll wait. :o| I spent the last two weeks pretty much 24/7 learning CSS and figuring out new coding I've never seen before. I got to the point of knowing html pretty well messing with it since 1999, but after two or three days going headlong into decoding websites and figuring out which code does what in a hunt-and-peck method, I realized how much CSS really rocks. With that, using a base like Wordpress was wonderful.

So here it is - a new website and a new blog! It's not a fancy design but clean and easy.

There are folks that might be interested in the information on my old Blogger blog which ran from 2007 to 2011. You can view the last four years at this link. I was hoping to migrate it all over here but with some tests I found text very easy to bring over but bringing images over is next to impossible and rather messy. If I find a clean and easy way to do this, I will.
