There will be no new articles this week on EE, since I’ll be camping and traveling, and (mostly) off the grid. EmptyEasel’s regular schedule will resume next Sunday.
If you’re looking for an art-related fix in the meantime, I’d recommend Graham Matthews’ Artpromotivate.com, Katherine Tyrrell’s Making A Mark, or Dan Johnson’s RightBrainRockstar.com.

James Kinnett: Realistic Waterfowl Paintings

I guess I just wanted more personal opinion and l. . . read more
I will get straight to the point. The biggest social networking mistake artists make is . . . not social networking! (Or not doing it enough.) I often hear artists say that social networking is too time consuming. And I will admit, I used to be that person. But you know what would really be ti. . . read more
Everyone wants something. To give you a non-art example, I have a friend who wants to open her own coffee shop. She's had that dream for a long time. But of course, there are a ton of little steps that she needs to accomplish before selling her first Caramel Macchiato . . . And dreaming about . . . read more
