How do you all think I should break up this page?
I have a big problem with keeping things categorized, even though most of what is on the page is paintings, I can't figure out (without limiting myself) how to break these down besides the obvious links. Frustration.
Part of what is getting me into a tizzy is having this shop buried within this page:
http://www.kittyportraits.com and that page is buried within this page http://www.supah.com. See my dillema?
I hate to have people dig...
Any comments are very much appreciated!

hmmm, i understand your confusion totally. i had a similar problem with organizing my own website, and i don't even sell things yet.

-i think the piece of website advice that has stuck with me the most is that it should only take three clicks to get to the final destination. any more than that and people will get slightly annoyed or just bored, and give up. so for example, starting at your homepage, there should be a link to your shop (1 click), links to the different categories of products (2), then links to each product in the category (that's 3).

-as for your categories themselves, i think the obvious is the best way to go. so the way you already have them broken up on the kittyportraits.com page is the way i would say to do it in the shop.

-so let's see... starting with supah.com, keep everything you have there but add a direct link to the shop. that unburies it pretty easily. then don't forget to add that link to the bottom of the rest of your pages, you know, where you have the links to everything else on the site.

i think that's about it; if this is confusing at all just let me know! by the way i love your site and all your work! (i signed your guestbook!)

first: thanks so much for signing the guestbook, i totally love your page too:)

second: I have heard this rule as well, (the 3 clicks) I'm thinking about eliminating the gallery section and upping the shop, just because frankly, it's more important....

I re-worked the home page (http://www.supah.com) so that the shop would be more blatantly featured...

you have been a great help to me, so thank you! also thank you for liking my work- GO TEAM!
Your sculptures reminded me of my friend's work- she used to do these awesome bronzes of j-crew catalog models. I thought they were hilarious, especially with bronze being so very very permenant and fashion being fly-by-night... 
anyhow, thanks again

OK! I broke it all down and did the best renovation I could possibly do... ((here: http://www.supah.com/big2/gallery.html )) I have everything more consistent in look, feel & navigation. I only have a few sections left to renovate. Then I'll put up the pillows covers I've been working on. Unfortunately my camera was recently doused in Diet Coke. So it might be a while....
