A classic work for artists of all kinds, about reconciling the call of creative work with the demands of daily life and narrated by Anne Truitt herself. Renowned American artist Anne Truitt kept this illuminating and inspiring journal over a period of seven years, determined to come to terms with the forces that shaped her art and life. Within its beautifully written pages, you will come to know a woman whose range of sensitivity - moral, intellectual, sensual, emotional, and spiritual - is remarkably broad.
Anne Truitt (1921 - 2004) was a sculptor, painter, mother, and grandmother. Her journals provide both illumination and nourishment. This is the journal of an artist, as well as "an extraordinary woman: sensitive, intelligent, perceptive." (Doris Grumbach).
