Saturday's PhotoHunting: Paintings

A local artist painting the very beautiful town of Positano .  . . 

While traveling I enjoy looking at artwork that can be found in famous museums, but I also love admiring artwork from the many talented street artists.  Over the years, I've managed to purchase several beautiful pieces which I will treasure always.

  1. Oh, so you're a patron of street artists... ;b

    When I was 13, I had a portrait sketched by an artist in a square near London's National Portrait Gallery. I treasure it still. :)

  2. I love this photo. I like his sweater and also the umbrella! I love buying art when I travel too.

    Hope you are enjoying the Olympics! Have a great weekend.

  3. Hi girls, thanks so much for your comments....

    YTSL, yes I love street artists. That's a cool story about your experience in London with an artist. Having these memories and treasures are part of what I love about traveling too.

    Annie, I thought the same thing too. I love his colorful shirt and cute little umbrella. I actually enjoyed watching him paint. I try to buy at least one item on each of my trips. Nothing big because of limited space or expensive because of limited budget :) I woke up at 5:30 this morning and I am enjoying the games so far. :) Have a great weekend too.

    Thanks YTSL and Annie, have a wonderful weekend.

  4. I also enjoying buying pieces of local art of all sorts when I travel -- isn't it the best souvenir, to remind you of some special place and time?

  5. I am sure he has some lovely paintings of the beautiful town. I like to buy paintings (not too large ones) when I travel too.

  6. Hi girls, thanks so much for your comments . . .

    Sandra, yes these wonderful art souvenirs is an great way to remember the places where I visited. It also reminds me of where I want to go back. :)

    ECL, yes he had a wonderful and colorful style and his paintings represented the beauty of Positano perfectly.

    Thanks so much. Have a wonderful weekend.

  7. Lovely photo of the artist in the process of creating a painting! I am blessed with a house full of paintings by my grandmother and daughter, and keep thinking I want to give it a try myself sometime. I admire people with the gift of visual artistry!

  8. Hi Anne, thanks so much for liking my photo and for your comments. I also admire people with such artistic talents.

    You're very fortunate to be surrounded by beautiful paintings created by your daughter and grandmother. I think you should definitely give it a try.

    Have a wonderful weekend.
