Today has been one of those days. Let me tell you. All I wanted to do this morning before David got up was to write a quick compilation post for week #5 of my 1-pic-a-day-challenge and then continue with one of my watercolor paintings. Unfortunately I had the weird idea that it might be the right time to look at why some of my images were displaying blurred.
I started my search with a plugin that reduces the image’s file size, but that wasn’t it. I moved on to the theme, because I remembered that a while back I got a note about an available update. Right. Should be easy, updates are included in the purchase price – no problem.
Wrong again. No matter how I tried, I was not able to get the update done. Since I have had my website look the same for quite a few years, I was over it and soon I started looking at other themes. Templates that were less complicated to maintain and time consuming for me, but still stylish, maybe even nicer. I found this one, which I hope will prove to fit that bill. However, getting it to the point where you are seeing it now… that took me all day today. Yup, we had breakfast, cleaned the kitchen and I got going – now it is 6 pm and I hadn’t even had lunch. Time for dinner!
But before I go, here is the promised compilation of week #5 – well, I am actually going to switch it up a little over the next two weeks, because I have three pictures that are following a theme, I’m sure you’ll agree. Can you believe that I never painting pure watercolor faces (only mixed media)? And I do like how these turned out.
Let me know what you think about the site’s look and especially if there is something that doesn’t work or look right. Fair warning – I have not updated posts from last year and earlier yet and I’m not sure I ever will. So do expect to see some random code, broken links and no images in those posts.
p.s. Like the weeks before I’ll be sharing this blogpost with Leah’s Creative Every Day / Art Every Day Month of November here, where you will find many other artists’ work. Maybe you will have a few moments to hop over there.
