iWeb Replacement - EverWeb

Many of you may already know that Apple discontinued iWeb a few years ago.  My website was constructed using this amazing tool, so the thought of rebuilding it, much less learning a new program, has sent me into small panic attacks.
I'll be honest, I have NO desire to learn html code, no matter how "easy" it is.  For some reason I have it in my head that this method is archaic.  I mean really, in this day and age! Okay that made me sound old, but for Pete's sake, I'm not building this website on a Commadore 64!  There has to be a better way!
Anyway, my old iWeb website was still functioning, so I was willing to wait until a suitable replacement could be found; limiting updates and only adding minimal changes.  I frequently checked with Apple's community forums and it looked like several companies were stepping forward to fill the need.  But things like this take time, especially to work out bugs etc., so I waited.
Finally last year, it looked like EverWeb would emerge on top, so I made the plunge.  I don't usually give endorsements, but Rage Software has indeed created a suitable replacement for our beloved iWeb!  I was able to recreate my website to look much the same as the old one, and tech support was never lacking.  I can't thank them enough!

Heres a link to my new website, plus one that will take you to the Everweb app download.

The Russell - 2015

Malos Pollos                                                                                                        24 x 40"   oil-linen
This is my painting entitled Malos Pollos, which was accepted into the The Russell - Sale to Benefit the C.M. Russell Museum, coming up in March.  The lot number is 258 and will be in the Saturday night auction.  To say the least, I am honored to be part of such an amazing event!
Also I will be exhibiting at the Heritage Inn once again, room 166, during the new Out West Art Show.  Hope to see many of you there!

Another from the Archives

Heres another favorite from the archives.  My husband modeled for this back in '08, around this same time of year.  Temperatures are dropping this week, giving us our first taste of snow.  After living most of my life in Montana, I'm still always amazed at how quickly the weather can change.
