South American Artwork

PS Painting on house Valparaiso (27)

Younger daughter and family visited older daughter and family who are in Chile on a Fulbright.  I am so proud of my grandsons who both remembered to get pictures of street art for Nana.  I thought I would share some of them with you.  I’m guessing everyone in Chile is an artist.

PS Valparaiso from funicularThis is Valparaiso and this is the required photo op there.  Taken from the top of the funicular railway, you get a good look at how hilly this city is.  The houses are painted lots of bright colors and decorated with art no matter how expensive the neighborhood.  Valparaiso is a World Heritage site.  I won’t be able to walk it, but I will find a nice cab driver.PS art on house Valparaiso (60)

This building is spectacular.  I love the dancing figures and the splash of gold paint.

PS Santiago (9)

This is an older art style on a building in Santiago.

PS The boys at Santa Lucia Park (2)This is Santa Lucia Park in Santiago.  Remember it is winter there, so the vines are dormant.  Looks a bit creepy, but I’ll bet it will be luscious when summer comes.

Sand art VinaSand art is big on the beaches at Vina del mar.

PS sand castle Vina del Mar we arrive in Chile (21)I had to share both of these.  I am amazed at this work and tortured by its impermanence.  Such skill.

PS Zentangle bird Valparaiso (56)Zentangle art is alive and well down South.

PS Pelicans Vina del Mar

Actually natural art is everywhere you look.  Meghan took this pic of pelicans near Erica’s home . . .

PS the Andes and La Cornisa (15)and this while they went skiing in the Andes.

Travel is the only thing you buy that makes you richer.

Can’t wait to go myself.
