MAN AT WORK

[Linked Image] Terryl Godoy has been painting for about 34 years, and is one of Belize's most well known artists. But what most people didn't know is that he's also a musician. About 2 years ago he stopped painting as much, to devote more time to his music. We caught up with him today as he gave us more insight into that.

"So that's what you said basically two years ago that's its hard for a painter these days. Does that hold through now?"

Terryl Godoy, Artist/Musician
[Linked Image] "Back then was much better than now. We really find the true critical time where finance is so hard to get. Back then I jump into music and it was great and today I demand to paint and to sell my product, I demand. So what I do I go around and I paint people homes and whatever the deal is, whatever the bargain is, I'll work with you, you won't take me too low because there is other buyers. But I'll give you the first privilege that if I had paint your house you get the first privilege. But we'll bargain out."

Emaun Hyde
"What are your plans for the future in both music and painting?"

Terryl Godoy
[Linked Image] "Grow bigger. But really and truly this should be a surprise to the public, I have intension to put a restaurant and a stage for live music, have different band come over and play. That's my big aim to do that."

Emaun Hyde
"You are planning concerts?"

Terryl Godoy
"We are going to do a little concerts for entertaining the people that comes at the restaurant and also have this idea of a mobile truck to reach out to different district and villages to perform music live because this is what we love."

Terryl is asking anyone who owns one of his paintings to take pictures of them, and email them to him so he can use it for his website. His email is [email protected]

Terryl is awesome:) last year he sat down outside our favourite place to stay at the time, and did a painting for us to bring home. Since then we have built our own place on Isle la Bonita... and would love him to paint that picture for us:)
