PAINTING IN PARADISE

Mexico has been nothing short of amazing! Super relaxing, but completely filling my head with color and pattern ideas! I spent my last days painting at the beach…

Meli and I painted our own designs on clay bowls with the locals- which was so much fun!

Which then turned into my water mixing bowl…

A quick and simple painting of an aerial view of the beach.

The patterns in Mexico were SO COOL. This blanket was my favorite…

Stacked sombreros…they look cool close up, right?

More embroidered fabric… So colorful! A Mexican art called tenangos… I want to frame one of these.

There were hackey sacks everywhere! Talk about a flashback.

This flower blew my mind.

A few things I brought home…might have gone a little nuts with pink.

Meli’s Día de los Muertos dog! This shop was the coolest. We went there at least three different times!

Traveling is one if the best ways to stay inspired. Even if you stay in your own town- get outside and explore! There’s always new ways to look at things…

Saying goodbye to paradise tonight… But so refreshed and ready to get back to work!

Hasta luego amigos!
