Study 86: Art Resolutions-That Building Next to the Middlebury Bank

Art Resolutions is a self-imposed initiative to create an art study every day for a year. 

Two weeks ago.

The morning of my godson’s wedding, I sat outside Carol’s Cafe in Middlebury, Vermont. Perfect temperature. Perfect sky. Perfect place. Perfect day. Over a cup of coffee, I looked and appreciated the small New England town quaintness and architecture. Out came my moleskin and sketching pen. Always fascinated with the layers of design in old architecture. Immersed in the act, I nearly missed a voice curious to see what I was drawing. Fast forward an hour. The curious voice belonged to a friend of my best friend. She is also an artist and we spent a good hour in her studio above the cafe. We talked about coincidence, life, philosophy and, especially, art. This is life’s good stuff.
