Paint Cuba with Lilli-anne Price


Timeworn, but magnificent. Dilapidated, but dignified. Fun, yet maddeningly frustrating. Cuba is a country of indefinable magic. 

Writer Brendan Sainsbury, when talking about Cuba said, “Cuba is like a prince in a poor man’s coat: behind the sometimes shabby facades, gold dust lingers.” Existing through en economic embargo that has lasted more than half a century, Cuba’s colonial cities haven’t changed much since pirates roamed the Caribbean. The atmosphere and architecture is particularly stirring in places like Havana, Cienfuegos and Trinidad where grandiose squares and cobbled streets tell of opulence and intrigue. 

Join Explore Amazing Places and cruise the ocean front Malecon of Havana in a 57 Chevy. Experience history as we stay in the the Hotel Nacional, where ousted president Gerardo Machado took refuge during the Sergeants’ Revolt of 1933. Be welcomed into gorgeous Casa Privadas, “Private Homes” of Cuban artists in the colonial city of Trinidad where you’ll also be able to enjoy the warm white sands of Playa Ancon. Your Explore Amazing Places experience of Cuba will be second to none.

About the Artist

My artistic journey started 17 years ago inspired by the ever changing light on the landscape amid the Steinbeck immortalized hills where I live.  Plein air painting is my chosen method  therefore calling me to create paintings outdoors! Oil paint and an array of palette knives is my way of conveying what I see. After rendering my vision  in bold shapes and color, I deconstruct the painting adding texture and angst. There is something exhilarating about spending 3 hours of your day to capturing all of that energy and beauty.  #YouHadToBeThere.

 A passion ignited by a passion leads the path to success..Since I am an avid equestrian, I like to begin my day with a ride. My horse Magnum is a frequent subject appearing in my work. He is a stunning creature and capturing him on canvas is a pleasure.! Art and horses will always intertwine in my life. It is all about that movement, which I interpret in my dressage and paintings. My best work comes from that powerful engagement and risk always plays a part. My work is impressionistic bordering in abstraction.
