I've been following the guidelines for a 'gallery' website from my research in Caroll Michels' book "How To Survive and Prosper as an Artist". In it, I learned that it's best to have separate sites for a 'fine art gallery' and a 'store'--not both combined in one--which is what I've been doing. So, my new site, darinjones.com is going to just focus on my work--'gallery-style'.
I'm so proud of myself for actually doing the research and creating this site all on my own. I've bounced ideas off friends--which has been so important for feedback because, let's face it, I know what I like and want, but knowing what others like and want can be completely different from mine.
Today I even created a temporary 'announcement' page on my current site stating the reveal and date/time of my unveiling. So, anyone who happens onto my site will see that a new site is coming this Fri. Yay.
I know this new site will further my vision of "creating art that inspires and connects with people around the world".
BRING IT ON!
