Some art pics of Costa Rica.



Isn't that cool? I love this shot.

This will be the last post of CR and then onto Artfest! Yeah, and it's only a month later...ohwell.

After about 8 days, I was happy to have a day that had some art filled things in it!


First, this was the mosaic behind the bar at the resort.. very cool.


Sarah standing INSIDE the trunk of the tree... the outside of it was all carved - you can see part of it there on the left.


These were hand carved wall hangings, all different sizes and animals.


This is the typical oxcart that were used to take coffee beans across the country to the pacific for shipping. We were at a museum that showed all the paintings on these carts through the years. They are all hand painted by eye!



This is one in progress, no pencil marks, no stencils, just freehand designs. Below are close ups of the wheels.







Hey guys, want this on your art table? lol


And a neat shot of all the paints...
