The Journal of an Artist

Daybook: The Journal of an Artist

Anne Truitt

I read this book years ago. Perusing through my book shelf, I picked it up again. That’s the value of owning your own copy. You’ll never know when you’ll need it again. ‘…the Well-Read Life’ by Steve Leveen encourages picking up a book again if you’ve fallen into booklove with it. There’s a value to revisiting a book that one read. Often I rush from one book to the next. The book is about her experience as an artist. There are so few books about artist’s experience and this one is from her own perspective. The reason for her start of a journal was a period of convalescing after a rigorous two shows in NY and DC. She visited her friend in Arizona and started to write everyday, in the morning. Her observation of the Arizona color is descriptive.

I like Truitt’s sculpture too.
