Book Signing Dec 20: "Paddy the Goat"

Janine Edwards writes: "It was such a pleasure to read the new Anguilla book "Paddy the Goat that Saved Rainbow Island" to my 4 year old son. The visuals are so refreshing and the storyline is great. Kyiv loves the book and wants me to read it all the time. It'll make a great Christmas gift or souvenir for kids of all ages and friends of Anguilla in general."

Paddy the Goat that Saved Rainbow Island is a colorful children's book published by Macmillan Caribbean and written and illustrated by Jo-Anne Mason of Island Harbour, Anguilla. The story centers on a special goat that with the help of his friends saves the island from a hurricane. Anguilla, often referred to as Rainbow City is usually such as gentle, quiet place that when a hurricane comes it often takes folks by complete surprise. Paddy the goat symbolizes the strength of the people of the island as they endure and overcome the ravages of the fierce storms that sometimes visit us. This delightful tale will entertain children of all ages.

Loblolly Gallery located at Wallblake House in The Valley will host Jo-Anne Mason and Paddy the Goat in a book signing and opening gallery party on December 20, 2003. Everyone is invited. Please come and bring your kids!

The book is also available at Something Special in West End, Bartlett's on the Sandy Ground Roundabout, CuisinArt Resort and the Anguilla Drug Store in The Valley. All books sold on the island are signed by the author but stop by her studio in Island Harbour for a special dedication. You can also buy Paddy on-line from his website: www.paddythegoat.com or you can find him on Amazon.com, just type in Paddy the Goat. The books are $18.00US

Garve Beckham Watercolor Workshop Receives Rave Reviews

Garve Beckham, Oregon watercolorist and teacher, was in Anguilla teaching a watercolor workshop November 3-­7. The seven students who came with Garve from the United States were treated to luxury at Villa Romeo on Sea Rocks. Two additional students from Anguilla joined the group.

The classes were conducted on-location throughout Anguilla. On the first day, Garve covered the basics of color mixing, brush techniques, and elements of perspective. He also covered the various techniques to be applied to creating the dynamic Caribbean sky, the luscious and varied turquoise shades of the sea, the soft, pink-hued sand and the gentle wave of the palm trees.

Garve values the unique charm of Anguilla and the small details in structures which so often go unnoticed by the casual observer but which create the element of interest in the scenes he captures.

The reviews from his students:

"We had great weather, a wonderful and compatible group of painters, a good and cheerful instructor, a view that was to die for, good food wherever we ate it, and most of all, memories that will last a lifetime."

"The best parts of the workshop were the artistic approach, every single demonstration and the whole "en plein air" [outdoor] experience. Garve Beckham and the group dynamics were a highlight."

"These sorts of things take a particular kind of person to pull it off well. I think [Garve has] what it takes to do it."

"Highlights of the week: A) The chance to paint in a beautiful place with an excellent instructor, where the logistical kinks were worked out. It was a trip of a lifetime, like a dream come true. I was pinching myself all week. B) The villa was perfect. It had ample room for sleeping, eating, painting, and critiquing. People could gather in any number of places and not feel cramped. The ocean view and grounds were so beautiful that it was possible to paint right there even in bad weather. C) It was nice to have the workshop price include much of the expense."

"I was sincerely honored to be included in the classes, and as far fetched as it may sound, I will make something out of all the beautiful teachings, it just may take some time before I can show it to anybody. Thank you from the bottom of my heart, to Garve, Marilyn and Bethany."

Garve will be returning to Anguilla next November to teach a workshop for the Anguilla Arts Festival. He can be contacted at garveb@juno.com.

Dora Richardson

A Word About A Great Anguillian Mother

Denrick Richardson of Edmonton, Canada writes:

We would like to introduce a great woman to you. This picture shows Dora Richardson of Roaches Hill. Many people do not know her, but she has the distinction of being the mother of six, a grand mother to many, and a great grand mother to several children. She is particularly distinguished because of her hard work as a housewife and mother; she ensured that her children achieved, and obtained skills to influence the fields of Education and Health in a remarkable fashion.

Today at the age of 92, she still encourages her children’s children to excellence. Most recently, Dora traveled to St. Kitts to witness the acceptance of her granddaughter, to the Bar. Dora also has a grandson who is completing a medical degree at the Harvard Medical School. Everyone on the Island should be acquainted with the recognition that one of her children has brought to Anguilla as being the first Anguillian professor at the University of the West Indies in Cave Hill Barbados. It is with great fondness that we recognize Dora Richardson a great educator and nurturer.
