This afternoon after seeing clients I stopped at the hardware store and bought a quart of Morracon Blue to use on the trim. If I don't like it when I start the trim tomorrow, after touch ups to the walls, I'll make a trip to Warroad to get a different shade. I am just so anxious to get the room set up!
A snarky faceless person online informed me that it is NOT a studio because:
- it is not in a separate building,
- and because I am not a "professional artist" who earns her living solely by my art works.
- she said I am a "poseur"
- and that after having looked at my Flickr site she said that what I create is more in the crafts genre that I should call it what it is, a "crafting room".
Thankfully comments on my Blogspot blog are subject to my approval before they are published. I deleted the comment of that pretentious viperous troll. I could give a rip what she(?) thinks! It does not negate my joy with my STUDIO ! It does not matter who she is or what is her name, she is one of the legion of trolls who get their jollies from succeeding at making others feel awful if we allow them that power. I pity her.
I must admit there was a momentary sting to her words, as it touches on all those insecurities I have about my talent and my work. But it was only momentary, my joy has wings and fluttered right back up to perch on my shoulder.
There simply ARE toxic people in this world who spread their venom for no logical reason. I did not ask for her opinion nor do I care if anyone approves, or thinks me a poseur! I know myself, believe in myself.
Sticks and stones may bruise my bones,
But your words will not dispirit me! :-)
LIFE IS GOOD!!!
