Monday in Artist Websites – If you’re tired of trying to fit in on MySpace or Facebook then come back tomorrow for my review of ArtBistro.com, a new social network for artists.

Tuesday in Painting Tutorials – There are a number of ways to create areas of emphasis in a painting, and on Tuesday Dianne Mize will cover six techniques to help you do just that. Don’t miss it!
