Gentle Winds

Due to unexpected circumstances I'd found myself back on St. Croix for a few weeks so it was especially delightful that I had a chance to paint with the Palletteers on the grounds of one of the islands' lovely north shore condos as guests of Peter De Bono! As we painted we were hit with a sweet combination of sensory overload: the pungent saltiness of the sea air, the rhythmic sound of the waves crashing onto the shore, the gentle splashing of the swimmers in the pool, the crisp blues and greens of the sea and lawns, the warmth of the sandy beach, and the background noise of ongoing conversations between residents at the snack bar. What a great morning!
