The art of Costa Rica is as breathtaking and as colorful as the landscape.
Each day that cadets majoring in Energy Systems Engineering are in Costa Rica, we'll introduce you to a different painting - each more captivating than the next.
It will be difficult to pick a favorite.
Today's painting is by Rafael Angel Garcia.
We hope that this painting will inspire our followers in elementary school, middle school, and high school.
