I created this website from start to finish yesterday. Note to self: it CAN be EASY, it CAN be GREAT, and it doesn’t have to be PERFECT.
I wanted to wait to share this site until I finished my latest painting that I’m working on. I wanted to wait and fix the coding so when you click on a piece of art, it shows the whole piece with nothing cut off. I wanted to wait until there was more than one blog post kicking around the bottom. I wanted to wait until I added share buttons, extra sidebar widgets, and descriptions to all the paintings. I wanted to wait until it was…PERFECT.
Instead, once again (I’ve been practicing this), I shared it before it was perfect (on Facebook with a short “I just finished my new art website <3!” comment).
Well, I received likes and comments that made me smile. I found out that my friend’s mom is an absolutely amazing painter (I had no idea). I also found out that my friend from University went back to school for web and graphic design (so cool – again, I had no idea). Overall, I showcased something that I love, art and making websites. It got my creative juices flowing to think about what else I can create and guess what, all those little extras will happen with time but it feels like I got a head start with everything because I shared it with my community.
Thank you to everyone that checked out my new site. :)
