Throughout my life I have always been mesmerized by the flamboyant, outrageous colors, textures and patterns created by Mother Nature. A friend of mine sent me this YouTube video from Cornell University because she KNEW I would LOVE it. New Guinea has been on my bucket list for decades. It is one of the untouched places in the world that still has birds, insects and mammals that exist no where else in the world. I don’t know if I will ever make it there, but seeing this video makes me want to go even more. I thought I would share it with you.
Do you have New Guinea on your bucket list? Share with me the places that you would love to go to draw, paint and photograph.
It’s on my bucket list also. The last I looked the tours were extremely expensive and that didn’t include the airfare.
This is one of those places you go to once because of the prohibitive costs involved. I am saving pennies and hope to make it there one day…. would be great if we went together!!!!
Hugs to you,
New Guinea has never been on my bucket list, but this video is really breathtaking! Wish I could go too!!! I lived in Venezuela during my early teens, and will always remember the field trips my dad took me on, and some of the extraordinary things I saw and learned while we were there. I’ve always wished I could go back as an adult to learn more. (Big Sigh!) There are so many amazing places and things in our world– Thanks for sharing-Anita.
How wonderful for you that you got to live in Venezuela. That must have been such an awesome experience. I lived in New Jersey all my life and the farthest I had ever traveled was Pennsylvania to summer camp and Disney World with my grandmother. I didn’t really start traveling until was in my late 20’s. I started and now I can’t stop!
Maybe New Guinea not in my bucket list yet, but never say never:) I’m planning my new summer trip to Russia ( where I lived during my teens and post-teens:) and definitely new sketches from rural part of the Volga River on my priority list!
Thank you for sharing your amazing work with us,
Hi Lana. Wow, Russia! That sounds like an amazing trip. I hope that you will keep us posted on your blog about your travels, exper3iences and the art that you create from the trip.
I would love to see the Birds of New Guinea and the bugs must be still unexplored. NewZealand has great birds and the botanical specimans are really fantastic. How bout velvet worms? Now I have gotten interested in living rocks(lithops).I would like to see the plants and bugs of the Namib desert.
So much to see….and do…
