8 Paintings from St. John

The following 8 works were begun out of doors in St. John, Virgin Islands. I've been home in New York State for the month of March, working in the studio to complete these Caribbean paintings. The title of each work includes the date that the work was begun, the temperature of the moment, the latitude and longitude of the place, and a verbal description of the subject that motivated the painting. I also made a few changes in the Caribbean paintings that were previously posted ("9 Paintings in Progress", February 4, 2008), and that post has changed accordingly.
