Connoisseur Site Revamped

I used the Art Rage painting combined with quite a few other layers that were variations of the original tree image. Just an FYI, the larger part of the Connoisseur site's background is a one pixel horizontal image that is tiled vertically to create a gradient effect. This bottom image was simply created to fade out into that gradient, as was the header graphics. Trickery like this makes for relatively lean, yet graphically rich layouts.
