Artist Vampires

  As Artists we are receptive to our surroundings and the relationships we keep.  They influence our decisions consciously or unconsciously.  Some of our relationships are nurturing and inspiring, while others not so much.  These latter individuals can keep us physically, intellectually, emotionally and spiritually from our art.  Artist Vampires.
