Have you ever had one of those days where everything seems to go wrong? I know, we all do. Recently I went to the Dr. not feeling really great, expecting the usual, "we can't find anything let us know if it gets worse." Instead I got," think you had better go off wheat and gluten." I really didn't want to hear that, seeing as I happen to love carbs! Suddenly all I could do was think of everything I couldn't eat! Which led me to reflections of breakfast in France! Oh how I loved the croissants, and fresh bread every morning with a pot of steaming milk to make cafe au lait. After mourning my loss for a week, which accounts for not posting, I decided if I can't eat it I can paint it! I think I will be able to find quite a few things to paint. Let me know what you think. Before I go I just wanted to mention Leslie Saeta and Dream Tolle Perry's Artists Helping Artists blog. It is so fantastic and they are so generous and giving of advice.

Well, back to the drawing board. This painting was done in oils not oil bar, think I will try it in oil bar and see how that goes. All comments welcome! I love hearing from you, the art blogging world is very exciting.

So there I was in France feeling overwhelmed with the landscape. But, the breakfast table didn't overwhelm me so I started sketching breakfast! Remind me and I will give you the recipe for papaya seed salad dressing, it is so good! I love using blue, and sometimes think I should branch out, but am always more happy using blue. What do you think?
Hope you are enjoying your new year. Let me know what you are painting, and, once again thank you to all who have stopped by.
