I love featuring artists from around the world on this blog who do beautiful works that inspire me to travel. Today, as I was looking around online as I usually do, I discovered an awesome artist by the name of Mike Barr. His specialty is beautiful cityscapes of Australia in the rain (as well as some non-rain landscapes and paintings as well) in the impressionist style. What could be more lovely? As both an art lover (and a huge fan of impressionism) and a travel lover, I can’t stop looking at these beautiful paintings and imagining myself in the scene. I had such an amazing time in Australia and these paintings are definitely making me want to go back for another visit. Check out some of his beautiful work:
