ST. THOMAS - Diane Kreiner's lung cancer has forced her to leave St. Thomas after 48 years, but she wants to make sure her artistic legacy remains here with the sale of about 80 paintings, watercolors and prints in a retrospective show this weekend: "Farewell to St. Thomas."
Kreiner said she wanted to sell the paintings locally; because they are steeped in her experiences of living on St. Thomas, they "belonged" in the islands that inspired them.
