Your redesign is making me nauseous, but I suppose it's here to stay, till you change it again and make me go through this once more. Yes, I know; I'll get used to it, eventually.

I'm a fan Jack. Your reputation is sound with me. Honesty prevails - opinions and jabs aside. Your comments are largely valued.

Is there a reason for that left upper corner graphic resembling swatches of office carpet? Must it change colors as well?

I think Franklin has a thing for colours. And paper.

I'm getting the feeling that the carpet thing, which Necee also mentioned, is valid. Hey, if it's not reading as paper, it's not reading as paper. Jack, you didn't like it when I switched the font to the one with serifs. We're back to the sans-serif; does it work better for you? By the way, the changing image is functional. People reload the page to look for new comments. If an image switches out, that gives feedback that the page has updated.

Canson paper is nice. The density, texture, and acid free colOUR range allows for conte, pastel and charcoal to sit well on the surface.

Even selling carpet has it's conventions, and overlapping swatches is definitely one of them, unfortunately.

Franklin, why not just have random images of your own paintings? It is your site, after all, I'm sure no body would mind if you plugged your own work a bit. Hell, then, once in a while, you could slip a new work into the mix, as an easter egg for the observant...

Yes, I agree, it looks like a carpet; worse, an ad for carpets.
I agree. Why not have your own paintings in the corner? Far more colorful and
interesting.

If desperate, have a carpet sponser and get paid.
