Painted Around The World

I love art, it has been a big part of my life. I grew up loving all kinds of artistic sets, I adore going to museums, I enjoy painting, and I love admiring art in architecture across the world. It’s truly inspiring, the colors, the patterns, the light, the shadows, the details, the abstraction, the meaning…

I love how art can be very meditative and liberating too.

In this post I will feature all kinds of painted art from walls to cars, canvases, and ceilings from across the world.

  4. These are all wonderful, but I think my favorite is the photo of the colorful houses, which are relatively rare (I think) in the US.
