I decided to give my art blog a WordPress installation of its own.  It was becoming unwieldy and too complex having the art, the blog, the color exercises and the shop all in one place.  The color exercises are now on the blog site, as well as recommended art books, info about encaustic, some tips on designing websites for artists, and lots of photo galleries of the art shows I attend and participate in.  And news, and of course, the blog.  🙂

I created my first travel photos website in 2004 as a blog on Blogger.  Then I tried out Coppermine web photo gallery software.  Next, I designed a new site in HTML with PhotoShop galleries.  Eventually, I redesigned it in WordPress and added a blog, using a couple of themes from Elegant Themes until I finally designed my own theme for this site.

See the progression below.

This was my first WordPress website, which I hand-coded, using my own theme design; a good way to learn the ins and outs of WordPress as it existed in 2009.  IOW, challenging!

I loved the look of this design, but it was somewhat narrow, had no blog, and the portfolio design was too complex to update very often, so I moved on after a few years to my first design for a WordPress website (Marilyn Fenn Design version 3).

This is one of my favorite designs for my art website: still HTML, still had the animated menu buttons, but with a cleaner, simplified interface.  It was during this incarnation that my husband wrote a database program to randomly serve up artists’ quotes on the sidebar, much to my delight.

This design was fun to create, but a little too visually busy, plus I was limited to 20 items per portfolio category, so I outgrew it.  Thank goodness.

2001 Texas Interactive Media Award, Outstanding Achievement, Student/Personal

This was a very extensive totally Flash-based site with all my school, art, and design projects, and it took me the better part of a year of nights and weekends to build!  Sheesh!  This was the site where I first animated my popular color exercises that are now on my art blog.  I also had animated artists’ quotes, and dozens of animations I had done for IBM.
