One of the best parts of any travel adventure these days is the chance to give my paints and brushes a workout. Here are a few of the results.
Willemstad, Curacao – Brightly colored buildings along Anna Baie on the Punda side of the floating bridge. Apparently years ago the Governor’s eyes were bothered by the light reflecting off the white buildings and ordered them all to be painted different colours. I think maybe he was just longing for something a bit more European in flavour.
Hilton Marina – Fort Lauderdale. Picture pretty poolside.
Key West, Florida – In the garden of the Mermaid and Alligator Bed & Breakfast. It’s a great garden setting – with orchids in bloom spilling out of pots and hanging from pillars. And yes, it is the middle of winter here.
Key West, Florida – The Artist’s House on Eaton Street. I’m not normally a fan of purple, but something about the shape and shutters on this building caught my eye. The Traveling Conch Tourist train made three passes, while I perched across the street with my paints.
