St. Lucia is known as the "Helen of the West Indies"
Jacqueline has been painting on this exotic island since 1998. She began offering her plein air painting workshops and typically, the students have come to St. Lucia to participate from different parts of the US , Canada and Barbados.
This year a special workshop was offered for St. Lucia Artists and with the help and insight of Finola Prescott, owner of Lucian For Real Gallery in Rodney Bay Mall, artists Alcina Nolley, Mary Weber, Cecil Fevrier, Sonjette Rodrigues, Peggy Jackson, Marie Anne Bergasse and Wendy Bain joined the three day plein air painting workshop.
The first day the workshop was held at the beautiful, historic Great House on the Cap Estate.on the north end of the island.
Day two was spent on Historic Pigeon Island, A National Park.
Participants painted the ruins on the island and the landscape surrounding the museum which provided a wonderful shelter and view to escape the mid day sun and possible shower.
Alcina Nolley captured the light and shadow of the ruins.
Peggy Jackson completed her first acrylic painting .
Sonjette Rodrigues , a fabric artist , worked on some interesting motifs for her fabric designs.
