New Favorite Artist: Sheila Norgate

I just love Sheila Norgate's website.... (I stumbled on it through Robert's Genn's newsletter) Her work is just wonderful too... But what struck me about her website is that she really lets her personality shine through. I'm guessing that I probably would really like to hang out with Sheila. She has a great sense of humor which is very important in my friend selection. :) I clicked through just about everything there... And was lingering on the small works for sale.

I guess my point is that...

  • If I hadn't found her site so charming... I probably wouldn't have looked at the whole thing.
  • If her site wasn't so charming... I wouldn't have lingered over the smaller affordable works for sale...
  • If her site wasn't so charming... I wouldn't be hoping for a few more sales of my own, so that I could buy from her!

Makes me realize how very much my site needs overhauled. Ah... so little time...so much to do!

Lauren your comments ring true, with respect to the importance of site design, and hanging with Sheila Norgate. Now I'm off to linger on her site, and sadly, will also determine that mine does not measure up.

I think this artist's website and digital art is really cool, http://www.maggietaylor.com/flash.html . Aside from the fantastic visual imagery, I like how her Flash design doesn't get slowed down by my internet speed, which is very important when getting fancy like this.

Just wanted to remind you that YOU do have a great blog going now...and it does reflect your personality and humor.

Hey, anyone that has a painting titled "Lucille Was Finding it Hard to Be Taken Seriously While Wearing a Float Tube" deserves to be followed on a daily basis! :)

Lauren said...

Wow... that is a good one. Gorgeous paintings. Thanks for the link!

Well, you have made my day! :)
Thank you for that kind comment.
I'm not quite done with "Lucille..." but you'll see her eventually.

Debra said...

OK...I am looking forward to seeing Lucille soon! :P
