‘This is the link to my new Art Portfolio website’, I’m sorry there was a Linkage Leakage. I have changed it to how you see it here: http://www.johnclinockart.com
Please let me know if this link now connects you directly to my new site, OR not. I appreciate your assistance while I sort this out..
I want to clarify that I now have two sites: This one, Art Rat Cafe, that will continue as is and always has been, AND, my new Art Portfolio website that is created with the single purpose and intention of showing my art in as simple and as formal a context as possible.
I welcome your visit and comments.

I have now published my professional art portfolio website. It is created with the single intention of showing my art in as simple and as formal a context as possible. My business card will point to this new website as will I when seeking the elusive showing opportunity. I welcome your visit and comments.

Art Rat Cafe will, of course, continue. It will often echo the content of my new portfolio Gallery but, as always, elaborated with Gothic hanky-panky, poetry swelling like thunder cloud, beatific blues, food for thought and a roll in the hay.
