Obstacles vs Distractions

by Luann Udell on 10/22/2015 7:29:00 AM
14 Comments

But deciding if a social situation, a relationship, is a true obstacle I need to overcome to move forward, or merely an annoying distraction that’s wasting valuable creative time and energy, helps me get myself back on track.

Artist Spotlight: Keiko Tanabe

by Dave Geada on 10/21/2015 7:03:14 AM
2 Comments
