Hello Friends,

I am into the last week of this three month stay in Panama. As always I wish there were two more weeks so I could get further ahead on my painting schedule but, on the other hand, I am ready to return to Florida and Virginia and to my children and grandchildren.

Pat's Naval Academy painting progresses.

I have had a wonderful week of work. The Naval Academy painting, that now has the title Bancroft Hall – USNA, has come along well, much to my relief. What you see today is getting close to the final image. However this week I decided to place a color guard in the foreground. I am now studying photo references of the Academy color guards and before the end of this week I hope to have included a guard and put the final touches to the architecture. This has been an exciting challenge and, as I come into the home stretch, I feel confident of finishing well.

This week saw the start of the Mardi Gras celebrations. On Friday evening I was the guest of the Commandant of the Bomberos, at the crowning of the Carnival Queen. The Bomberos are the local fire department for which Malcolm and I have helped raise funds. Firemen have been dear to my heart since I was a little girl. My Uncle Dan served many years as a fireman on Staten Island and for as long as I can remember, I have felt love for the men and women of our fire departments.

On Saturday I joined the start of the first of the Carnival Parades, marching along side the Bombero band.

My next newsletter will come to you from St. Petersburg, Florida, where I will host an event for the Girl Scouts and a weekend show for collectors of my art.
