    The use of "get to" is fine in the first sentence = I do not have a chance to do something.

    The second sentence is wrong in the context of the first sentence. You could use "But I hope I will soon get to it" if you had first said "I liked her painting in the shop and want to buy it. I haven't been back but I hope I will soon get to it" = will do it soon.
