I've spent the day tinkering around with the site.  I changed the PayPal buttons from a drop down menu to a "Donate" button.  I felt that  this would make it easier to deal with the varied prices and also the deposit and final payment.  
Okay...website finished.  That was fun.   Hoping to get a domain name soon, but all in good time.  This blog is where I plan on posting portrait progress and any other miscellaneous stuff I feel like yapping about.  Feel free to comment away as you so desire.
