Did you know Nina Dobrev’s (Elena) mother is an art conservator and has a master’s degree in fine arts? Well, The Vampire Diaries star must get her artistic temperament from her mama! The Bulgarian beauty tweeted a photo of her paint-stained self, holding up a couple of masterpieces.

“Nothing like a day of artistic expression with your toes in the sand… And the result! Jackson Pollock inspired! I mean, I'm no JP but there's no harm in playing.. :P. Lol but look at my foot,” Nina wrote. Hey, it’s impressive she got more paint on her canvases than she did on herself! Pollock would be proud!

Thus far, Nina has been pretty relaxed during her hiatus. She traveled to Hawaii and Universal Studios in Hollywood. Considering how hard she’s worked — playing two TVD roles is taxing! — we’d say she’s earned the vacay.
