Tuesday in Featured Artists – Sometimes we come across artwork so unique that we just HAVE to feature it. . . drop in on Tuesday for some fascinating pieces by an artist who creates realistic three-dimensional portraits entirely out of wool!

Wednesday in Art Marketing Tips – Do you use Pinterest to promote your artwork? What about group boards? At the end of the week I’ll share some pros and cons to using group boards on Pinterest, and see if there’s any interest in starting one for everyone at EE.

Plus, our apologies for the broken links last Sunday!
