Default Which website looks better new or old?

I'm getting a new web site built. My old site can be found at diversepainting.com. The new one is attached.
I can get clicks, but is having a hard time converting. I was thinking it might just be the website. I'm open to hear you guy's opinions.

I like the new design. The current one is very "bloggy" looking

New one hands down. Much cleaner content with better navigation. You might check your spelling "To benifit our customers".

I prefer the lay out of the new, although all those primary colors are a bit "dazzling"

I would like to see that top photo in full scale, as a thumbnail, there's too much "color information" to process.

Love the big photo (as long as you don't use stock photos).

New one looks nice but keep in mind you are looking at a scaled shot of the home page. This isn't how it would look in a web browser
