    Well the site uses frames which is an search engine hazard if you have SSI on your server use that instead of frames.

    You use tables on some occasions to layout the page which most times you could use css. You could also handle more of the presentational features using css also which would lower the load times etc.

    Some people will argue about the intro page as it justs makes you have to make another click to get to the content but it is really up to you.

    Some very nice art by the way and from a design point of view i like it good work.

    Hi -
    What a nice design!!

    Only things I'd suggest are to:
    1. Add a dark background to guestbook page - currently very hard to read the light blue on white.
    2. Change the title style on the gallery pages - appeared very chunky /slick /metallic for the clean & simple look of the rest of the site. (Pers. opinion, of course!)

    Super job,
    El

    I would not reccomend the crosshair cursor over links. To online amateurs the fact the object/text is a link may not be obvious.
    The intro "enter" image is unusually wide and i would reccomed a smaller image. It presents a horizontal scroll on the page which is probably not what you want.

    Beautiful colors and beautiful image on top!!

    I just don't like the buttons, in my oppinion it gives the site an "old" look

    The drawings are beautiful, specially the "virgin" girl, congrats

    Even though you say "best viewed in 1024..." you don't actually suit that resoloution best. I get quite a few horizontal scrolls bars on most pages to maybe you should tinker a bit with that.
