Wednesday in Featured Artists – Don’t miss Mehran Rashidfarokhy’s colorful impressionist landscapes. While you’re here, feel free to submit your own artwork to be featured on EE as well.

Thursday in Art Marketing Tips – At the end of the week, blogging guru Alyice Edrich will explain how to take a single blog post idea and turn it into an entire series of posts instead.

Plus, a special invitation:

Our friends over at ArtistWanted.org have invited all EmptyEasel readers to submit artwork for their 3rd annual SELF competition, a worldwide search to discover the story of one artist as seen through their art.

Artwork entries will be reviewed by a panel of highly respected jurors, with prizes that include (among other things) $13,500 in cash, a magazine spread in Flash Art Magazine, and a gallery show in New York City.

There’s both a basic and premium entry, so make sure to check out all the details here to see which one you’d be interested in.
