A Call to People Who Are Halfway Decent with HTML!

My blog is looking a little rough.  I had made a drop down menu on the previous layout, and ALL I did was change the background picture for the season, and that drop down menu kind of exploded.  I'm not sure what happened, I'm using the same template, literally just changed the picture.  I'm really bad with technology.  But anyways, bloggers reading this, if you feel like you're skilled enough at web design to clean up my blog then I will paint a portrait of your pet in return!  I haven't really posted yet about my animal portraits, but I am an artist and I enjoy painting animals and landscapes.  Here are some examples of my work:

"Windsor" Yellow Lab

"Jayne" Beagle

"Charlie"  Chocolate Lab

"Chloe" Whippet

I usually do dogs, but I can do any animal!  I just painted my sister a portrait of her hedgehog for Christmas.  So even if you don't have a pet but you have a favorite wild, prehistoric, or fictional animal that you want me to paint, I can do that.


- I would like my blog to look neat and somewhat professional at least, so I'm cool with you changing the layout and template.
- I only ask you keep the current picture for the banner, and the content/pages the same.
- In return I will paint one portrait containing one or two pets (an $80 value).  
- I will need at least one good photo to work from.  You can choose the background color if you like, I usually only do solid backgrounds.
- Shipping will be free if it's staying in the US.  However, I just can't afford international shipping so if you live outside of the US, you will have to pay for shipping.
- Portraits typically take 1-2 months to complete.
- Email me at and we can talk!


  1. I wish I had the skills to help you out. I can do a little bit of html, just enough to maintain my own blog and edit posts at the html level to a certain extent. But unfortunately I don't know enough to do any serious kind of editing.

  2. Wow, you are very talented! I wish I could help you out but I don't have the skills.

  3. Your paintings are beautiful! Honestly, I'm not seeing anything really wrong with your blog and certainly didn't catch anything that "exploded." The only suggestion I would make is is pretty subjective is using the "advanced" setting in blogger template to make the main body of your blog a little wider for those of us that have older eyes and like things a little "bigger" but I think you did just fine with what I'm seeing on my screen.

    1. Haha thanks! I'll try doing that, making it wider, crossing my fingers that I don't mess everything up!

  4. I think your blog looks lovely and your paintings awesome! I can barely use the templates on Blogger (you would think I would have learned by now, but no).
