Artists finish their work and an audience completes it!

I like to imagine that I’m communicating with one person over the internet. I proofread and edit my messages a number of times pretending to be the targeted reader. Will the reader understand? This is how I got really good at editing! I’ve never been great at writing. But I love editing with a computer. Computers make correcting simple! Life should be as easy to correct as a computer design!


Sean of the South is my favorite writer. Without straining a muscle, but by simply articulating his funny bone, he reaches our soul and unfolds it right in front of us, in a good way.

Sean helps tons of people. And I get tons of inspiration from Sean’s writings. I’m learning how to write by reading his work. I struggle. But if I edit enough, my writing doesn’t stinketh!

Sean Dietrich, excerpts from The Holy City:
(Sean is writing about himself and it reminds me of me)

“… I know this boy. But I haven’t seen him in years. I always forget what a nice boy he is.

And this niceness attribute, as it happens, is where a lot of his problems stem from.

Because the old saying is true, nice guys really do finish last. It’s merely a matter of physics. In the game of life, the role of the nice guy is to hold the door for everyone else. To refill the other guy’s iced tea.

But it’s a double-edged blade because nice guys aren’t usually nice to themselves. Nice guys have a hard time loving old Number One…”

<<< >>>

“… I don’t want immortality. I don’t want success. I don’t want money. I don’t want bragging rights. I don’t even want to win more often than I lose.

I simply want to give my love liberally to all I meet; until my veins are bled dry and there is nothing left within me; until my body withers and fades. Love before me and behind me. Love within me. Love around me. Love on top my head. Love below my feet…

Casting Art to the Net

Ed’s Art Net is a therapeutic self portrait. A virtual behavioral therapist. A self-published soliloquy. A solo sociocultural web media philanthropy. A family size and safe website for ages 12 and up due to some too scary for toddlers artwork and mature subjects like bipolar disorder and religion.

I’m not being paid to advertise for anyone and nothing here is for sale. This is not a business. It’s a fun hobby. But it doesn’t keep me out of trouble!

I don’t always know what I’m doing and I certainly didn’t when I started this website/blog. But Ed’s Art served its purpose when it helped one other person besides me.

https://eds-art.net/Home is my blog.

https://eds-art.net/artArt is currently mostly a collection of my early years work with a recent side trip or two. I try to make it interesting with exposition.

https://eds-art.net/musicMusic is under construction. I lay the groundwork there for what I hope is fun to come.

https://eds-art.net/wordsWords is writings from my personal impression of the Christian religion. I briefly looked at others to try and gain a better perspective of God. In this webpage, I go out on a spiritual limb by sharing my deepest personal thoughts.

https://eds-art.net/motorcycleRides is a compilation of road trips and experiences mostly in the southern Appalachian Mountains. It’s a fun webpage for anyone interested in motorcycle adventure.

https://eds-art.net/aboutAbout contains a little me and my family info along with some bipolar disorder details plus mental health aspirations, credits, and comments.

https://eds-art.net/wellnessKate’s Korner is what it says. It’s my favorite youngest daughter’s corner of Ed’s Art Net. She enjoys writing and has a wellness clinic for folks that need help with nutritional health. ❤️

My favorite oldest daughter is a teacher currently busy at being a mom. ❤️

By Ed Caldwell

Except for some unavoidable honey-dos, I pretty much goof off for a living now. My last career job was designing internet operating circuit boards along with a distinguished team of engineers, managers and support personnel. Prior to that I was an electronics technician evolving into circuit board design in the defense industry working with tactical missile systems. My first career job was a professional artist. During my younger years I worked many odd jobs beginning at age nine with a newspaper delivery route.


  1. Thanks for letting me know that I can get to the website by clicking on your name from Sean’s blog… so now that’s part of my morning routine of reading… Sean… then you… then Bishop Barron’s daily gospel reflection… I have a lot to read on your website still, but I did want to let you know that eds-art.net comes up as “Not Secure” so you might want to fix that, since that might alarm some readers. I am enjoying reading your blog very much! More comments as I go along…

    1. I checked with my web host and eds-art.net is secure. They told me that you might need to clear your browser cache in order for the warning to clear.

    2. Hi Terry, I discovered that I had mistyped some of my Ed’s Art Blog links in Ed’s Art Net. So it was my typo!

      I typed http: in the address which indicates to your browser that the site is not encrypted therefore non secure

      I corrected it to https: which is the actual address. http: works but it’s not correct.

      Ed’s Art Blog uses TLS (SSL) encrypted and secure protocol.

      Thanks for flagging me on that! The issue should be corrected now.

  2. I will add comments as I read more of your blog… I have an old website but it is being updated and is not published (created with the Wix editor)… so I did not give the name under “Website”

    1. Hi Terry,
      Thanks again for your help with the security issue!
      You were brave for commenting.
      Good luck with your website!

  3. Thanks for telling me about the security issue… It appears to be not a problem now, so maybe it was just the browser I have been using… I have mostly used MS Edge but sometimes I have tried others. I have not kept up with technology (retired computer programmer who is woefully behind the times … but at my age (80 next year), I guess I am glad to be able to use my computers at all!)
