Navigation: This is tricky enough to negotiate – there is no clarity or consistent approach to links. And the home page has a distracting background image that does not facilitate reading the text. Once in the galleries, look to a small link on the bottom of the page to get back to Home and the next gallery. The links on the left of the homepage are not formatted and the whole has an amateurish quality that is difficult to forgive at this point of the web's development. This is a pity, as the paintings are far superior to the site.
Gallery: Studio Paintings; Plein Air and Studies; Archives.
