Artist: Luca Raimondi

I love that this painting looks realistic enough to make me feel like I'm on this beach, but not so realistic that I can't use my imagination. One day I'd like to live right by the beach in a seaside town, maybe in New Zealand or Florida or North Carolina.

Sometimes in art class I ask my students to close their eyes and think of a happy place. I usually imagine a forest full of tall green trees. I think my new happy place is the beach. Where's your happy place?
Pin It!
