That goes for the navigation system too. I didn't understand the navigation and it was only when I read the message "try rolling over the pictures" that I understood what to do. But to be honest when I first entered I was confused and if I wasn't reviewing it I would have left immediately. I don't want to be told that this is how to navigate - it should be immediately obvious.
I am a bit conservative in my taste of design and this was a little to bright. The colours I didn't like but that is just my taste - I hate purple.
On the brighter side I found out a bit about gretchen with some nice artwork and photos. It has a nice personal touch. I didn't quite understand if she was a professional artist ..was this a personal web or a real attempt to drum up business.
Editor Notes: I think Colin speaks for many visitors who go there: " If there's no serious reason to stay, maybe I should go."
