Monday – As 2006 turns into 2007, many of us will make new year’s resolutions to change our lives for the better. In a similar manner, I’m choosing to set some goals for myself this year and on Monday I’ll describe how I go about that process. I’ll also give some tips on how to follow through and stay determined, so that your life and your art become what you want them to be.

Tuesday – Is there a way to balance your life as an artist with your basic needs? While some jobs are better than others for creative types, almost every artist needs to do something to tide them over until their art begins to sell. Tuesday’s article will cover some occupations that artists might enjoy, and give some ways to schedule your time to include your artistic pursuits as well.

Wednesday – This week I’ll be reviewing another exceptional painter, Don Dahlke. As always, if you know an artist who you think should be featured at EmptyEasel, let me know at my contact page.

Thursday – If you’re at the point in your life when you’re considering going to college for art, I’d strongly encourage you to do so. The knowledge and skills you‘ll gain will far exceed the cost, and will open you up to a wider world of art than you ever knew existed. Check back in on Thursday to read about several key benefits of a higher education in the arts.

Friday – There’s a certain “zone” most artists have to get into when painting, and for some it’s harder to achieve than for others. On Friday I’ll give some advice on how to attain that focused state of mind, and ideas for keeping the distractions at a minimum when you do.

Saturday – Bachelor of Arts continues this Saturday with an all new strip. Don’t miss it.
