FIRST ask yourself......
Are you able to be alone with your artist partner, on a
beautiful island, in seclusion for a month, having "packed-in" all
the food and supplies you will need? Of course you will be living in a well
equipped shared house, with plenty of living space. Most modern amenities exist but this island
paradise is "off the grid" for internet, phone, TV and the like.
There are limited visitors to the island as well as the occasional visiting naturalists
(who you may be able to
accompany) observing such things as the rare Tortuga or other fauna and flora. You must be totally self sufficient, have insurance, be self
realized and prepared to be art focused in this natural paradise.
This is for artists NOT faint of heart or persnickety.
