Watercolor "Remover of Obstacles" Hawaii artist Arlene G. Woo

By accident, I found myself Googling Ganesha and found that I could relate to him right now.  He is known as the "Remover of Obstacles" and I can use that now.  Hindu color symbolism indicates that blue conquers evil, saffron is for warriors, and yellow is for peace and happiness; thus, my choice of colors.  Hopefully, he can help you, too.  contact:
