Artist in Residence, BRAZIL!

I am getting ready to be an Artist in Residence on a tropical island off the coast of Sao Paulo, Brazil! The island is called Ilhabela, also known as St. Sebastian Island. Here is the link if you want to see more:   I will be staying in a lovely beach house, mid April to mid May, with 4 artist friends (a.k.a. A Bellas), Denise, Terry, Sherry, Lynn and another artist, whom we have yet to meet, named Jane. No Ron this time! I will miss him. If anyone lives near him, could you feed him once in awhile? Thanks.
My art supplies are packed. (first things first) I plan on creating small things so I was able to get plenty of supplies in a bag that doubles as my plein air stool and backpack.  I have officially stopped the search for the perfect one because this is it, a backpack, cooler stool by Samsonite. There are other brands that are pretty much the same if you can't find the hard to find Samsonite brand. Here's one. I did not photograph my supplies before I packed. I wish I had because I don't want to unpack them now. More than that, I don't want to second guess what I packed and redo it! Lots of thought went into it. I need to just move on and work with whatever I packed. I'll show you my supplies when I get there, how's that?
I have 30 days on the island to focus and draw and paint. In JUNE, I will exhibit all that I have accomplished in an exhibit at the Workhouse Arts Center in Gallery 5. It is Tiny Tropical Treasures, June 6 - July 7 with a Reception on June 9, 6:00-9:00 pm. But more about that and other things later....
