I am not going to make excuses for why I have not been posting on my blog. If it had not been for getting a comment from a fellow artist I probably would not be here now. This is just so hard for me to keep up. I have been painting. This one I painted this summer. I was at a succulent plant place in Austin and saw this little boy with his red cape sitting on his Dad’s Airstream. He was spending his Saturday in a world of his own imagination.

I took a little hiatus from blogging (a year and a half to be exact) I am not very good at the social networking part of being an artist. I have a hard time putting myself out there. That is probably why I have a studio full of paintings and no idea how to get them out there. I have continued to paint except for a small gap when I had cataract surgery on both of my eyes. It is amazing how much better I can see. I was teased that my paintings were going to look different. They may not look that different but now I don’t have to stop and rest my eyes every 30 minutes. I was really struggling to see details. So here I am trying the socializing again. I plan to join some painter organizations and approach some galleries this year. Enough of that let me tell you about this painting, Breakfast Tacos. One Saturday morning I accompanied my husband to work in Austin. He stopped to get his breakfast at his favorite taco stand. The long shadows cast by the morning sun caught my eye.
