I love to read! Mostly about art, sometimes about food. Currently, I'm reading Twyla Tharp's "The Creative Habit" and am enjoying her ideas on creativity. Her quote "obstacles to good work are one's fears, but also distractions." As artists, moms, wives, we need to be able to create around "distractions" as our lives are surely going to be surrounded with them. Even though I have many distractions throughout the day, it seems I do dedicate myself to my painting as soon as I get the kids on the bus (after my bike ride) and pretty much paint all day. Life is good.
Next up on my book reading list is "My Life in France - Julia Child" and I just finished the book "Alice Waters - Chez Panisse", a wonderful story of Alice's life and vision to try to change the eating habits of Americans. great read.
Also, just ordered a couple more art inspiring books from Linda at Aurora Books in downtown Menominee - my favorite book store!
Can't post without a picture - this one is another one from my trip to Santa Fe.
