Close-ups of Island Life

"... I prefer to work directly from life, but without attracting attention...I move along looking for subjects, usually in the morning when people are about daily tasks...Yet perceptive Bequians, friendly or shy, are aware of my presence... Many have become friends and have invited me into their homes over the years. By these chance meetings, I am bound even closer to the island..."

These Island Life paintings are a group that I intended for book illustrations. They are all painted in acrylic on canvas. Julie Savage Lea
