Big, Bold and Beautiful

Art is all around. 

Big, bold and beautiful art – most of it street art – from around the world…and home.

Bog, bold and beautiful painted mural on the street in Cartagena, Colombia

We came across this huge head sculpture while on a walking tour of Quito, Ecuador. Bears similarities to Captain Luke Picard, no?


A huge wall mosaic tellls the country’s history in the Presidential Palace in Quito, Ecuador


Discovered this whimsical painting just this week at Oregon Health Sciences University on Marquam Hill, Portland, Oregon


Wood carving of a bear catching a salmon on one end of a bench along the Trolley Trail in Milwaukie, Oregon


A beaver on the opposite end of the bench in Milwaukie. Celebrating the Beaver State.


Many of these would not have been noticed if I wasn’t exploring on foot.
