DON’T KNOW WHAT TO PAINT? ART IS EVERYWHERE!

Artsy in Costa Rica!

I am visiting Costa Rica this week and one would think…”Hey, nice vacation”! Yes, I am having a nice break from my usual artistic routine, but in my mind, I am always creating….working…even on vacation.

Art is Everywhere!

This is a beautiful place for sure and an artist paradise. I am burning up my camera…inspiration at every turn with so many exotic birds, animals and scenic views.

This is one of the most often photographed and painted birds…and this MaCaw decided to land on our balcony looking for a treat. Fortunately, I had some left over pistachios and breakfast was served.  Art is everywhere… but to the artist eye, it is usually seen and re-created into yet a different form for the viewer.

What I enjoy most about traveling is getting inspiration from the sights of different places. It refreshes my craft as I step out of my box and see things differently.

What does traveling do for you as an artist? Would love to hear your thoughts with a squawk back here or at www.facebook.com/faybeccadesigns. Hasta Luego! Until next week…Paint On!
