T is for Taco – October 15, 2009

“The capacity for hope is the most significant fact of life. It provides human beings with a sense of destination and the energy to get started.”

— Norman Cousins


T is for Taco
2.5″ x 3.5″ watercolor & Ink

This is a fitting painting for today. I am having 25-30 girlfriends over to my house for a Mexican pot luck “girl’s night out”. Every month we get together somewhere and tonight it’s my turn. It’ll be fun!

About Norman Cousins

    I like T is for Tacos. My grand daughter wants them for lunch, daily, after finding out what they are. You captured it just right with the contents spilling out everywhere. I’ll show her this painting this afternoon!
