Winter Break in the Bahamas

I'm in Hope Town, Bahamas for two weeks of painting on my own before my landscape workshop arrives on February 8th. It's been wonderful, in the middle of winter, to be out all day exploring the  town, beaches and harbor with my french easel in tow. I'm already looking forward to returning to Hope Town next winter, hopefully for a longer stay. It's easy to understand why Winslow Homer packed up his watercolors, and left Maine for the tropics every winter...

You can see a selection of my paintings from the Bahamas here.

And here is my porch "studio" in my cabin on the beach:
