I came across a wonderful website today, www.emptyeasel.com. It is full of information from marketing art online to painting materials.
My studio right now has an empty easel. I was working on a still life with pears and grapes but left for New York before it was finished. The fruit was quite rotten when I returned a week later. Because I like to paint from life, it was necessary to change the fruit and composition. It took much longer than expected but I will post it as soon as it's dry enough to photograph. Here is an older landscape of a view near my home north of San Francisco.
