Monday in General Art Advice – Tomorrow I’ll be posting a great article by Denise Telep which discusses the professional mindset that any full-time artist needs to have. If you’re looking to turn your art into a successful career, this is a must-read.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Dianne Mize is a former high school art teacher whose softly painted, impressionist artwork is simply a joy to behold. Drop in on Wednesday to see a few of her paintings and learn more about her work.
