Eddie is old school, but he is a little new school too. He finished his fine arts degree and he also worked over 10 years doing seismic. His work is very serene, but his home decor is not. Eddie is full of contrast and I think that is what makes this interview interesting. Check it out. Also the New Edward Gallery. Send me messages to firstname.lastname@example.org. Would love to know what you think of the podcast so far.

A big focus of the podcast is this question. Here is what Veronica had to say -
6. How do you slay the dragon of resistance?
After studying Art & Design at Red Deer College I got a job (steady income is always nice). It was a terrific opportunity but I had to make adjustments in my daily life in order to paint so I got up an hour early every day just to start my day off in my make-shift studio. I continue that to this day...studio first. It helps me to keep a designated area in my home that is always ready so that whenever I walk by it, I tend to be drawn in to work.
Veronica Funk answers these questions with insight and grace. Please listen to Episode 4 to feel inspired.
