Artist Anne Truitt wrote Daybook, which is a favorite of mine on the process of making art and balancing that with real life. There is one quote from that book that I think of often, and it guides my work. It is: "I would be a fool to sacrifice joy to fun." Many times people talk about making art as "fun", but that is not my experience. I experience joy. Sometimes. And that is very different from fun. And I think that's what Truitt was teaching. These are works on paper by Truitt that I grabbed via Little Paper Planes. You can go over here to Anne Truitt's website to see more of her work.
