A Matter of Temperance Book Review

A Few Thoughts on Indie Publishing Before I Begin When I was taking Art History classes in college, one of my favorite units was on “art of the naïve.” We often associate naivety with negative connotations, such as uncouth or ignorant. But in this case it simply means “untrained.” So, artwork of this kind is the result of the creative impulse pouring itself out through someone who was not an “artist” by training.

When she arrives in Socorro, New Mexico, … Continue reading Owl Dance by David Lee Summers Review
