Fish Tacos

I paint all day with little or no sense of accomplishment. It is not until I click on the publish button on my blog that I can sit back for this moment and say, "well....here is what I have been doing..." and for that brief moment I sense accomplishment. Time to select a new subject.
A bloggers lament.

(Meanwhile) At the Fairgrounds

This came right out of my head. Another year comes.  I painted almost every day last year. I painted around 175 paintings. Surely not one every day and of those 175 I only posted about 55. I am of the mind that now I do this for me. I post paintings to show myself that yes, yes I have came a bit closer to the best I can do. Above is proof of the progress.

A Brief History of Tuna

Here again. another year painting and blogging about it. Lots of things happened in 2015. I will not bore you with them all, but I did paint a lot this year. I did not blog all that much. It is so true that painting is easy when you don't know how and very difficult when you do. I would say that it is harder than easy now. I am learning .....and here is proof.  A tuna sampler.
