coffee & late night road trips

Late night road trips and learning to drink coffee in my Grandmother’s kitchen are a few of my favorite memories.  I’m 49-years-old and I’m pretty sure there are a few trips during high school and college I’ve selectively forgotten to tell my folks about.  It’s a damn good thing I learned to love coffee though—it’s kept me alert and safe on the road for a very long time. Grandma would be proud of that.  She always was such a worrier.

I just spent a few days in Brooklyn with my husband and my daughters visiting old friends.  Here’s a sample of what I shot over the course of a few days.  We saw lots of art—at MOMA’s Brooklyn’s outpost PS1 and the Cooper Hewitt on the upper east side.  I got loads of ideas and I always feel so sparked to get to work in my studio after some museum time.  Here’s a few links.

This week is now history, next week is sheer potential.

I spilled my coffee in my studio and thought the way it pooled on my drop cloth was really cool.  I was bummed about my coffee but thrilled to get the shot.  I hope you have a week filled with unexpected discoveries.

Fabulous coffee shop in Vergennes, Vermont. Great design and vibe. I might get to hit some thrift and antique shops along the way as well. Happy Friday.
