Simple Lodgings

Simple Lodgings, originally uploaded by SkeletalMess.

 Thought I would have a change of pace, lighten the place up a bit.
So, I would dearly appreciate some honest feedback on the new look, keep it or lose it.

It looks a little Victoria Secret.

Bonnie, Original Art Studio said...

Like it - especially for spring and summer - but I hope you bring back the former as it goes so well with your blog's name ...

It will take me a while to see this image as representing Shadowhouse Creations ...

Jessica Stier said...

I think it looks great!

Kathy-Catnip Studio said...

Keep it, love it, love your work!

Love, love it. You can actually read things a lot better. Keep up the awesome work. :)

trinad said...

(?) Do you provide tutorials on how can you can use or have used some of your textures? Your work is stunning my friend. I would love to gain some of your knowledge. :)

I have some tutorials posted, just click on the link under labels located on the left that says tutorials.

Jerry Jones said...

I appreciate all the kind comments and vibes about the new look.

I felt some Spring cleaning was appropriate, so a new lighter look I felt was needed. : )

Leah C said...

Love the lighter look! It's lovely & serene:)

Ann said...

I think your new look is fantastic. Not that I didn't like the way it was but I think this is a very pleasing look

Danyale Lewis said...

Rather beautiful....I always love damask in any form. I like them both, the other felt more like you...is it because that is how we got to know you to begin with, or is this another side and we need to wake up, lol! I don't know if you could choose anything we won't like, your taste is always spot on....well, that didn't help much.

Jill said...

Keep it! I love the brightness!

ttfranz said...

I love it!

MariaT said...

I think the color change is nice for spring and the new photo up top is gorgeous, but I don't care as much for the background. A little too distracting for me.

Magnolia said...

Love your new look! It's so much brighter. Please keep it!

Corrie said...

I didn't mind the other "look" at all, but this look is really beautiful

Jerry,
As usual very well done. Always intriguing to find out what will be on your page. I like this, from the shadows of darkness to vanilla, could be a metamorphosis similar to Stephen King writing love stories. Keep up the great work, Dave at IntownSports.

me again said...

It must be that time of year LOL. I also brightened up my blog and changed my banner. I vote for definitely keeping your new look -- I like the freshness and it IS easier to look around :-)

When I visit Shadowhouse creations I relate to the darkness and the emotions it evokes. It allows me to linger and peer deeper into the depths of your art and ponder what you are feeling or trying to convey. The light theme is lovely, but it doesn't feel like *you*, or the you I have come to know through your art.

Sunny Archibald said...

It is beautiful, but I miss the darker header......it's more you.

Sim said...

Hello Jerry!
Superb your new look!
Some light and delicacy...
Is it your cool and soft side?
Thank you very much for the new absolutely beautiful textures!
XXX Sim.

And I like the lighter colors for a change of pace. But we all love your old one too! Maybe bring it back in the Fall? :)

♥ ♥ ♥ said...

Karla Pitts said...

It feels fresh and new, but still looks like you.

Amy said...

I love it! I wasnt sure i was at the right page lol but wow i am LOVING it! And i love your textures! You rock! Thank you :)

Rylea said...

are you kidding? everything about it is perfectly gorgeous! But then, it's not only my opinion that thinks the same way.

The Giraffe Head Tree said...

I bow to your mastery, Jerry. Amazing.

Shelle said...

gorgeous...personally i have to change my blog every season...help my mood.

Jess said...

Haven't visited in awhile. Loved the darkness of the old look, but the new one also works well. It has a moodiness about it.

Daniel Montoya said...

I love the moodiness and evocative atmosphere in this piece! Your work is very inspiring.

Your textures and design work are awesome as well.

As a newbie Photoshop user I
thank you for sharing your knowledge and providing such helpful links on your blog.

I also left a comment on Flickr which is where I first saw your work.

All the Best,
Daniel
