There was of course island art that hat pictures painted of the locals and thier lives. They had abstract but very different from what do. They had representational art like the picture you see here, but all of it was done with the beautiful colors and the love of Art.
Sometimes we forget that there are other places in the world that have a strong presence in Art. Especially small places like we saw in Placentia, Belize. We all know about Rome, Paris, Spain, Englad. But what about all the small places that aren't so well known.
Everywhere I go I search out the different places that have embraced art. it is truly amazing where and when you will find it.
This picture here was done by a local artist in Placentia, and it was hanging on our Apartment wall. It was a great piece to see everyday when we came back
