This Week: 12/7 through 12/13

By admin in Weekly Preview

Monday in Art Marketing Tips – Art coach Aletta de Wal is back with a fantastic new article on turning obstacles into opportunities. It’s another installment of her ongoing series, “The ABC’s of Art Marketing”—and I know you won’t want to miss it!

Tuesday in General Art Advice – Do you paint inside your home? Many of us do, yet there are often small hands and furry paws that shouldn’t come into contact with the materials we use. Check in on Tuesday for Niki Hilsabeck’s excellent list of safety suggestions for at-home artists.

Wednesday in Featured Artists – Dip into a psychedelic world of vibrant color with Viktor Tilson’s abstract oil paintings this Wednesday. And, as always, feel free to submit your own artwork as well! We look for new artists to feature every single week. . . next week it could be you!

Thursday in Motivation – Do you invest yourself in other artists? Have some invested themselves in you? Finish out the week on Thursday with a great reminder of 6 different ways you can support fellow artists in your community.

And, on a related note:

I’ve been thinking a lot about how EmptyEasel can help artists promote their work during the holidays, and I’ve decided that THIS Christmas season we can help by revisiting some of the amazingly talented artists we’ve featured over the past 8 years.

After all, it’s been quite a while for some of you. . . surely there are new and exciting things on the horizon that you’d love to share with us! :)

So here’s my request:

If you’ve ever had your artwork featured on EmptyEasel, AND you’d like to be a part of our Holiday Updates segment, please let me know via our contact form or by email at

We’ll probably need to limit the number of artists we can include, and I’m sure spots will fill up quickly, so if you’d like to be a part of this, don’t delay! I’ll get back to you as quickly as possible for any additional information we might need.
