I have received the last painting and the wait was worth it. Chris is known for his paintings of native Caribbean birds. Frigate birds are featured in this view of Anse La Raye fishing village. It is acrylic on canvas.
This time I am posting the painting done by Louise Boulter. Can’t paint in a fishing village without a depiction of a local fisherman in his craft. This is acrylic paint.
This is another painting accomplished last Sunday. It is watercolor on paper.
This is Anse La Raye, as depicted in oil by Cecil Fevrier on Sunday, September 12 for the Annual World Wide Paint Out day. I’ll post another artist’s work tomorrow.
Carnival takes place in St. Lucia in July. I have just gotten around to recording my impression of the ” joie de vive” of the carnival season. This is 18” x 18”. Oil on canvas. $485 US
A new painting. I hadn’t painted for a while since the renovations are being done on my house. But we’re waiting for materials to come, so I had a few free days. This is oil on canvas. $450 US
How about a portrait of yourself or a loved one? There are some examples above. On the right is my daughter as a watercolor on silk. My husband is portrayed in enamel on steel and Jasmine is on the left, done in oil on canvas. I can work from your photo or one that I take. cost: One person, bust 9×12 =$1060 EC 11×14 =$1600 EC 16×20 =$3400 EC Each additional person in the image, add half the price, e.g.. 9×12 + 1 person more – $1590 9×12 + 2 persons more -$2120 A portrait would make a truly personal gift. Think about the generations to come and what a hand painted portrait of their ancestors would mean to them. Alcina
I spent a wonderful week in Barbados for the first Paint Me Barbados event. That’s me in the blue t-shirt explaining some points about metal clay. Please forgive the poor picture. Angela Went, in the lighter blue t-shirt, hosted the class in her wonderfully outfitted jewelry studio in Pelican Village. Picture taken by Finola Prescott. Students made a silver clay pendant, which was later enameled with transparent enamels. They also had a chance to enamel a fine silver pendant with opaque enamels. Many thanks to Suzanne Phillips for inviting me to participate. I made new artist friends, namely , Robert Fionda, Brian Stewart and Michel Gagne. The week was so packed with activities that I didn’t get a chance to meet the other fine artists who took part.
