Faerie's Secrets

Come to me, my secret love
Bathe me in your sweet touch

In a whisper soft as the dove

Say the words "I love you so much"

Another low...

Feeling a bit low lately. I have spent about 2-3 months working on some artwork. And in the end I have not been paid. The work was sent to the client all finished, and they said it was not good enough, and would I do it over. At this point, I felt so down about the whole thing, completely lost all inspiration and enthusiasm for the project. I did not want to spend another 2 months doing the same thing, and didn't think I could do any better, as I had given them the best I could do. So I told them they would really be better off finding someone else to do the work, and just to throw my stuff in the bin.
Well, my husband thinks they have gotten my work for free now. I'm not sure what to think...
So in the meantime, I have lost several weeks worth of money, now we are reduced to eating lentils and cabbage.
Why do I continue to be an artist? No idea.. but I'm sure everything will be better again soon
.....I'm hopeful.
