Artistic Work

Work Free Artist

(Words with power from an anonymous author)

Really, really had to post this. Sometimes people don’t understand the value of the work that has to be done. That is so shameful and sad. I know we are in a global economic crisis, but that is no excuse! Work is work.

I’m really trying over here! To be a mom (with a husband out of the country studying), single mom, really; to work on my projects jewelry and the landscape architecture ones and to have some quality time for the house and myself. But to have people who takes your time for granted is so, so sad! It takes out my energy. I’m trying… and to be drain, is even harder for me to want to try. I know I’m a good, or even a great Landscape Architect, I know I can handle big projects. But when the client wants all the $ for him/her, makes me reconsider to even want to work in Landscaping again. Meetings, more meetings, to take economic risks with my time and money for him/her to have their business going,… I’m already tired and I haven’t  even started! This things makes me want to be just a jeweler, to play in the workshop, to have meetings with the direct customer, with out so many personal (mechanical, civil, electric, industrial engineers; administrator, constructors…), everybody with the last word! In another time that was fun, but not any more. Is that bad to want to have a quiet life? I don’t ask for much, really, I just want a quiet life with peace and love around, my workshop, my little family, me, to be able to pay the bills…

I really, really needed to post this.
