Foodie Feeder

Ever since our son moved to Austin, Texas for grad school, and I started making visits there, I've become increasingly charmed with their food trucks, particularly the old Airstream type trucks. Now I'm obsessed with painting them. It's one thing that Austin offers the most amazing food I've had, but some of the best is brought to you in these incredibly cute and kitschy traveling kitchens! Driving around and spotting them is my kind of Easter egg hunt. This one was parked just outside our hotel.
I love, love, love painting the crazy abstract colors in the reflective metal and then standing back and seeing how it all makes sense.

This truck is parked on one of the streets popular with tourists and locals, where you can buy a pair of cowgirl boots that costs more than our first house, a cheesy souvenir piece of knicknackery, have an incredible meal, an incredible cup of coffee, go listen to great blues or jazz, and have a cupcake. All within a couple of blocks. I love this truck. I LOVE that city!
