Monday in Art Marketing Tips – Come by tomorrow and read about some of the ways you may be able to market your artistic skills to one of the biggest industries around—the weddings and engagement market.

Tuesday in Motivation – Oil painter Barry Howard will share his thoughts on how to develop a looser painting style, while pointing to some notable daily painters for examples and inspiration.

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 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.
