Sometimes art is just hard.
Working as an artist is actual work--but some folks don't get it.
Yes, there will always be a faction of people who think it is nothing but fun. Grrrr. Or unimportant. GRRRR. Or silly. GROWL!
But on the other side of the art coin there are those glorious times where we just lose time, and ourselves, in our art. It is just short of what some may call a religious experience. It is meditation, creativity, and connecting with something--a higher power, an energy flow--I'm not quite sure...but it rocks.
Yes, we all start somewhere, and we are usually not that great. But with practice we can get closer and closer to good.
So practice if you love it, and keep your fingers crossed for those space time continuum moments.

***UPDATE--as an after thought...I actually feel lucky to be doing this every single day, and although the above things happened, I will no longer complain! I do NOT want to look a gift horse in the mouth (we have to look up the meaning of that phrase...) so from now on only motivation.
