The May 2005 Fifth Anniversary edition of Oprahs O Magazine has chosen St. Lucia as it's top destination! On page 288 writer Kate Sekules highlights "Five Places to See in Your Lifetime." She calls St Lucia a "True Hot Spot" and highlights the picturesque Pitons, a United Nations World Heritage Site, unspoiled coral reefs, lush tropical forests, an active geothermal field with bubbling mud and clear hot springs all available by guided hikes which your hotel can organize.
St. Lucia's dramatic twin coastal peaks, the Pitons, soar 2,000 feet up from the sea, sheltering magnificent rain forests where wild orchids, giant ferns, and birds of paradise flourish. Brilliantly-plumed tropical birds abound, including endangered species like the indigenous St. Lucia parrot. The rainforest is broken only by verdant fields and orchards of banana, coconut, mango, and papaya trees.
St. Lucia is one of the most beautiful islands in the Caribbean. A tropical paradise 27 mi. long and 14 mi. wide containing 19,000
acres of rainforest, quaint fishing villages, banana plantations, a live volcano and enticing beaches.
The average temperature in January is 85 F.

Art Workshop St. Lucia, West Indies - January 6-9, 2010
What can I say? I loved the Island, the people and the scenery. Around every corner there was something to be painted. Painting with local residents was a special treat.
I enjoyed painting with Cecil and Alcina.
The underpainting excercises you had us do were very helpful in getting me to paint from dark to light and establish a "value plan". Thank you for your insightfull instruction! Bill McCoy
