this is my first very crude attempt at realizing a new nav page for my site. please bear in mind that i have never done this before. this won't be the image used, and i'm not yet sure whether i will use one large broken up image or a group of independent ones. what i have visualized is a visitor to my site being presented with an image of a painting with links to the rest of the site embedded in it. i love color reversal on my paintings which is why i used that on the mouseover. either i will have to do my cropping really carefully or separate the image with some kind of background color. i prefer the former.
