Monday in General Art Advice – Drop by tomorrow for an article entitled “How to Get Past the Post-Project Blues” by Carrie Lewis. As a creative individual who thrives on projects, I know exactly what she’s talking about—and she’s got some great advice on how to deal with it!

Tuesday in Featured Artists – Ezshwan Winding has been painting abstracts and figures for over 60 years. See some of her amazing, life-affirming works this Tuesday, and as always, feel free to submit your own artwork to be featured as well!

Wednesday in Motivation – Get inspired by Timothy J. Chambers, a portrait artist suffering from an advanced degenerative eye disease, who has not only kept on painting, but just finished designing and publishing a fine art coloring book for adults. Don’t miss it!

Plus, this week only, you could win $500 of art business help!

Artist-Giveaway

And in today’s New Artist Showcase. . .

Please join me in welcoming Brad Schulze and Jose Miguel Blanco to Foliotwist! Both of these artists are tremendously talented, and ALSO have amazing stories. . .

Brad is a full-time mechanic in Alaska, and somehow finds time to create beautiful watercolors on the side. Head over to his website to see all of his paintings—I definitely recommend Misty Morning and Old Cowboy, just to name a few.

As for Jose, he grew up in in Seville, Spain where he established a successful art studio with his brother. In 2002 he moved to Austin, Texas, but his art still focuses on the gorgeous landscapes and architecture of Spain.

Make sure to check out this stunning painting of an old fountain as well as his painting of the Plaza de Espana, Seville.

If you like what you see, please leave them a comment or send a message, I know they’ll appreciate it!
