Help with using my site

Here are the basic instructions for how to use my site:

  • The galleries are for art lovers to browse through my paintings. 
  • The catalogs offer items for sale.  
  • Both the galleries and catalogs are divided into 4 categories: Wildlife/Bird, Landscape/Farm, Equine, Hawaii.
  • "Works of Excellence" gallery is award-winning art.  These pieces are also included in the appropriate catagories listed above.
  • The "Archives" gallery is artwork that is no longer available.

GALLERY Section:

  1. You can look at each gallery in slide show format by clicking on an image in the gallery and then clicking on the forward or backward arrows at the bottom left of the image.  To exit a slide show and view images in another gallery, close out the slide show by clicking on the X in the bottom right of the image.
  2. If you want to enlarge an image, click on the TITLE above an image in the gallery and then click on the image on the page the comes up featuring that painting.
  3. If you're interested in seeing what's available for the piece you're looking at, hover your mouse over the image to bring up the title of that piece and type the title into the search feature, OR go to the appropriate catalog and search for it there. 

CATALOG Section:

  1. I offer both original art and prints. 
  2. A giclee print is a higher quality reproduction than a photo print and priced accordingly. The page will tell you if it's a giclee.
  3. There are giclee prints and giclee canvas.
  4. All photoprints are double matted and ready for standard sized frames.
  5. All originals are framed. 

The web designers are currently working on expanding the "search" function.  If you're looking for a certain subject matter, a tag cloud has been provided in the left column. Clicking on any subject in that section will bring up all items with that tag.  Also, if you're browsing through the gallery section, click on the TITLE above an image and then click on the appropriate tag.  All items with that same tag will come up.   

Thank you for visiting my site.  I hope you come back often and if you like any image, please share it on your social networking pages and let others know!
