¡°Chorus¡± is one of my watercolor paintings presented in the book ¡°On This Island: An Artistic View of Martha¡¯s Vineyard¡±, co-authors by Billy Morrow Jackson and Siti Mariah Jackson, published by Spotlight Press, Champaign, Illinois, USA. It portrayed a town called Oak Bluffs with an ocean view. The dainty Victorian gingerbread houses, the charming bandstand gazebo, and the flying seagulls playing in chorus to a strumming guitar.
