Just fantasizing about what it would be like to have a great cafe nearby. These are some places I wouldn't mind dropping by a few times a week. Sadly, in Maine the concept of hanging out in cafes isn't as thoroughly embraced as I think it should be. I keep hoping somebody will create the perfect cafe in my town. Perfection to me is: comfortable seating arrangements that allow for privacy or society; character; art; music that is carefully tended; cleanliness; good coffee drinks of course....and that certain vibe that allows you to be a part of the scene without having to be active. What are your cafe requirements and where are they being met?


Anne Truitt

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.
