Thank you AW & team

AW : " ............yes we do plan to make changes as we have already said we would. This is not just talk, we are already taking action. Our team has been creating some mock-ups of alternative background colors for the site and brainstorming about possible color 'themes' that our users could select from. We are still gathering feedback from our members and working out possible design ideas, so it's not something that will change tomorrow. However, we are very actively working on this. If we were to give a time frame, we would guess sometime in August................"
This post is dedicated to Andy & his wonderful staff, that at these hours, working intensively to make each of us, HAPPY, and SMILING, at AW site.
They work day and night... just to please US, My friends.
Roses from the Studio's Garden.
Thank you, AW.. We love you :-)... Take a good rest, it will help in your design work :-)
Looking forwards to see the new choices of backgrounds... Love & PEACE Copyrights (c) Nira Dabush

As 'they' say, you can please some all the time, and all some of the time.etcetc.. and I imagine that's true here. At least AW is trying to please us and, personally, I think it's a great start!.. Your picture is really enhanced by the darker background, I think, beautiful as it is! It will be exciting to see what happens in the future!! This truely is a great site.. and great people here. I tell my friends it's a "Feel good" place.. One always feels 'good' after viewing the posts, comments and other selections available here!! Gee got carried away, didn't I. YES!!!

Artist Reply: My dear LouAnn, thanks for the visit, and sharing the world with your opinion of the situation :-) If you look carefully, my work is on a White, background, in a way framed by dark background... I'm glad you personally enjoy it. I love the site , you know it.. I love the people, you also know it...and I enjoy your visits here, also... and I also recommended many people of this site. It's a good start, to know they are working on " ... "mock-ups of alternative background colors " & " design ideas " just to please us. It's always a pleasure to read your "carried away" comments at my portfolio... Love you, girl :-) .. I hope Lou is feeling well nowadays. Nira

The AW team are working on it, I remember the previous design we have a DIY change your own background colours. Maybe this will works better. Cheers my friend Nira!

Artist Reply: My dear friend, Francis.. INDEED, I so much agree with you.. It would be perfect, if we can choose our own backgrounds.. FREE CHOICE. My best wishes are for you, Nira

Emily Reed 23 Jul 2008


Artist Reply: My dear Emily... I think we are ALL Happy, that they are working on several background choices, since its the Basic Base, to present our ART, to the wide world... and it was really excellent... there is no reason, why it should not be, the same, or better. I think, they worked 9 month { a pregnancy time } on huge project of improvements ( - their baby, a gift for us :-) ... Undoubtedly, drastic change in many ways. If you ask me, I would say.. perhaps, it would have been better, if they work, step by step, on that change.. I mean, each month, show us the progress of their project { like ultrasound of a baby }... and then it would be easier for them to solve problems. That's anyway my thoughts. Now.. I'm not sure they ignore, you... But, I also not sure, how many people work with Andy, I mean, the team.. is it a team of 2, or 10, or more people.. or maybe Andy + 3 staff people... SO... I think it could be interesting, that we know this also.. perhaps AW photos of Andy and the staff, you know. So that, our expectation would be reasonable according to the people working on the project. My best wishes are for you... my hopes that all of us will be smiling very soon.

Loredana 23 Jul 2008

happy to see youuuuuuuuuuu!!!!!!!! and Nirasje, the roses are great with the grey, they are beating it !!!love love love this, and happy to be in AW with you!!!!! love to be here.

Artist Reply: My dearest, Nelluska... I'm happy to sEE you, surely you know it :-).. Of - course, (perhaps I would sound not modest, but truly I am... :-) My images will beat any background :-)... Yet i prefer different more CORRECT atmosphere, for my images, and for my eYeS, AND... Less busy surroundings when we see so much images, a day and commenting it... In other words the atmosphere should be peaceful, for OUR ART... And you know what I mean. LOVE, LOVE... Love you, and happy to be with you, my beautiful loving friend. My best wishes are for you !
