Hi, James -
I checked out your website: lovely paintings! I think the floral border
is a bit distracting; maybe you could use a repeating pattern of a flower or
whatever that you have painted? Or if you resized the images, you wouldn't
really need anything at all - the paintings will hold their own on the simple
page. I would also include your copyright notice more prominently.
