Only a handful of us ventured into the rainforest to paint at Debbie Kramer's "tree house." It's built on stilts on the edge of a cliff with a vast panorama of green forest and a glimpse of the Caribbean Sea in the distance. She's painted it in bright Caribbean colors. Her friend Bets Robb brought lunch-- bananas and vegan muffins and "cream cheese" (from cashew nuts and sunflower seeds). New member Alex joined us. It was a fun and different painting day.

Hot and sunny! That's the way I'd describe our morning at Hibiscus Beach Resort. The resort is beautiful: Bright blue beach chairs grace the well-kept beach, waves crash rhythmically onto the shore, tall palm trees sway in the seabreeze. It's a vacationer's delight! After finding some shade, we all enjoyed our painting time! Before lunch, Laura arrived with a paper copy of the first draft of the Caribbean Museum Center's Island Art & Soul ART Book. Quite a few palletteers have artwork in it, so, needless to say, we all eagerly perused it. The general consensus was that we LOVED it and can't wait for it to be published! Seriously, it's SO good that some of us were even DANCING with delight! Lunch was tasty and the service and cameraderie were great!
