Next Stop.....Belize!

Friday, August 06, 2010

This World Tour ATC series has been so educational for me, the research I do to find a subject to paint has been so enjoyable and informative! The latest was Belize so I picked Belizian art to do which also incorporates a little piece of life there with the women carrying baskets of goods on their heads and the beautiful blue waters of this country. I'm really happy with the end result, it was adapted from a local artists work, unfortunately I was unable to locate his or her name to credit it to since it wasn't listed.  Isn't it just some colorful fun!?!?  This was done with acrylics and I used some grass cloth paper scraps for the baskets.

The next country hasn't been announced yet but I'm anxiously waiting!

I've finally hit my 100+ (103.8 to be exact) mile milestone in my walk / ride, only about 600 miles to go to be out of Virginia! It would be quite a bit shorter if it were a straight shot across the state but the trail really zig zags all the way across! I'll bore you yet again with another map of my progress:  




I'll leave you with a little World Music. Bob Marley wasn't from Belize but I thought it still fit!

Really really lovely, Andrea!

I'm not sure about continuing the series, there seems to be so little interest for the work I put into it. I was thinking Switzerland next. Ah well, I'm grousing, but I would be interested in your feedback!

Thank you, Rebecca :)
BOO! On the no more World Tour, but I understand - that series was going to be one of the only swaps I was going to be doing for awhile...oh well, maybe something else will come up that strikes my fancy!
