Palletteers at Estate Little Princess Nature Conservancy

Friday morning, August 1, our little group met at the Estate Little Princess Nature Conservancy and were immediately enthralled by the fantastic flamboyant tree (poincianna)full of vibrant red blooms near the sugar mill. Despite the preceeding day's thunderstorms, the sun shone brightly all morning so all of us set up on the greathouse's covered porch to paint. There were only a few of us on island this week: Sondra, Emy, Freda,Gene, and moi (Ginger)... but we enjoyed the comaraderie. Unfortunately, because our members left at different times, there was no "show and tell", so no chance to photograph everyone's finished painting. Instead the finale to our morning was the unexpected arrival at noon of Heiko who came to finish a painting he'd begun earlier in the week. Needless to say, it also included the aforementioned flamboyant! :^)
