I would like more pictures on the front page and how do we do the galleries? Is that part of the template?

Hi,

I haven't read any of the other comments here, but here are mine.

I would recommend reducing the size of your banner height by at least 50% to 60%. You only have 5 to 15 seconds to make a good first impression on your website visitors. If you don't make a good impression then they probably won't come back.

You should also reduce your images on your home page by about the same.

I would place the two paintings up at the top, where the upper photos are currently.

I would reduce the size of your paintings by at least a third.

You need more content on your website if you want your website to be found in searches.

That is a quick critique of your home page.

Your website is easy to navigate. It makes finding out about you and seeing what you do easy.

My feedback is on the writing of your artist statement: You over use the phrase, "the artist", You use "the artist"multiple times in a row, which makes your statement appear too artificial.

Use your first name, then use the pronoun, "she", multiple times in a row/ This reads more naturally. For example, if I were writing a statement about myself, I might write something like this:

"Robert Kernodle calls himself a fluidism artist. He came up with this label after talking to other artists and philosophers. He decided on this particular label, after considering other labels like "liquidism" or "catastrophism". Robert now uses the word, "fluidism", regularly to categorize his photographic style where fluid dynamics is the subject and the inspiration. He also uses this word to describe his philosophy, which resulted from his art . He believes that artists who do similar work also fall under the same lable."

NOTICE how I alternate between using my whole name ("Robert Kernodle"), only my first name ("Robert") and the pronoun, "he". Mixing it up this way makes the writing more effective.
