Art in Ecuador, costa rica, Cruzita, Ecuador, El Matal, i can do this painting workshops, Jama, Lisa Brunetti, Post-Painting Competition, Weekly Photo Challenge, Weekly Photo Challenge: Creative, WordPress Post a Day
As I prepared to leave Cruzita for a long weekend at home (aka to build a goat-proof fence!) I saw this week’s Photo Challenge: Create.
The query asked, “Have you snapped a picture of something you’ve created, or something someone else has created? ‘
I chuckled! What have I NOT photographed lately that wasn’t related to being creative? I smiled, decided that the ‘next’ bus out of Cruzita would be just fine, and I began the arduous task of deciding which photos to share! (Or deciding which ones NOT to share!)
How about images, taken several nights ago, of the moonlighting broom makers from Cruzita?
There are many forms of being creative, including travelling from A to B with your very own parade!
My friends Laura and Barbara took a time out from being tourists and spent an afternoon of painting pottery. My friend Mary surprised me with a brightly-colored Happy Zeebra and an equally-colorful Happy Rock!
Before dashing to the bus, I present a photo presentation of the vast creative talents that have crossed my field of vision in the past few months.
This was fun! (Now; I’d best catch the next bus to Jama!)
Until tomorrow, Z
A lot of creativity going on here!! 🙂
Thanks! Yes, the artists seem to be everywhere! Z
See you in Jama soon Z!
Are you coming through on bicycles?
Siempre es MEJOR EN BICI.

MEJOR EN BICI.
great! for the next six weeks, my itinerary is a moving target! see you whenever you wheel through! Z
another great blog Lisa.. It is true , everywhere you look are examples of creativity even beyond the work of an artist….watching the craftmen putting together bamboo for a intricate designed fence….the craftmanship of using concrete for the molding around windows…The perfectly designed flight pattern of the pelicans surfing the waves…..the rhythmic swing of the machete as a worker cleans up a field…the end of the day beauty of the sunset over the Pacific…endless opportunities to view different aspects of creativity.
Oh, my highly-talented and poetic friends! I look forward to when your blog is rolling! Thanks for contributing so much to this post, and also for that gorgeous rainbow zebra!!!
Thank YOU amiga…soon, we hope .. as you can see, we now have an account… it’s progressing as well as my spanish poco y poco..enjoy building your fence 🙂
Si! I will (enjoy the fence work) but the water tank is ‘seco’ so first thing in the morning is to find the leak – or find that someone else needed/wanted the water more than I!!!

well I love the colorful zebra!
Thank you, Gwen! Mary is a wonderful person, and the art reflects her personality! She and John moved to Ecuador in December, and her art has recently taken flight, and she’s soaring! Z

Adiós Señora Z…
Muchas gracias, Carlos. The images of the dogs were great today! Nice post. Z
I like your colorful paintings – in my country I saw similar styles by Hundertwasser …
This was in the spam folder, and luckily I found it! Thanks so much for taking the time to comment and making my day brighter than the sun!!! How often is one compared to a great master of arts! Z

better, more positive, than Hundertwasser – an European artist …
What a beautiful wake-up greeting you gave me! You are the second person who has compared my art to Hundertwasser, and I am sobered and honored. May the day give you a smile as large as the one you gave me.
Wow! This has to be the best entry i have seen! Fabulous artwork, and excellent photos. Appreciate the like and follow over at my blog.
I think I should pinch myself and make sure I’m awake and not still dreaming! Opening the comments in chronological order, I first was honored by frizztext comparing my work to Hundertwesser’s, and next was this wonderful compliment. Thank you; I am honored to receive such praise from ‘a master’ in the field.
May your day smile on you as well!

Wow! The art works are so beautiful. Each piece captures something spectacular. Vibrant, bright, colorful.
Thanks! My life here in Ecuador keeps me immersed in artistic opportunities! One could devote a lifetime just to taking photos each day! Z

I just love that shot of the brooms
Thank you so much! The funny part was that I stopped to take the photo on Wednesday night; I told my friends to continue walking to the restaurant, and I’d catch up.. later i said to them, “Now what in the world will i do with a photo of brooms and their shadows?”
and Tah-Dah! WordPress came through with the perfect theme!
The guys in the photo were amazed when i showed them how beautiful their brooms and shadows were!
Somehow this sorts of creativity impresses the heck out of me…i can’t do things of this nature lol. Well done!!!
I am positive that you could do this! Thanks! Z
