Sunday take it easy and relax

Image
Our studio, Cristi Fer Art, has a retreat atmosphere, always relaxing, quiet most of the time away from the parades and busyness of Centro. It's only 25 min walk to La Paroquia but it feels so different out here! We have tons of birds changing with the season, humming birds all year around, several types of lizards, a fountain with fish, the happy dog and the new cat. After a constant busy time of painting, teaching, and events, last sunday I just relaxed around the yard. Took some photos as I was playing hide and sick with the sun.
