Hello Friends,

I visited our local high school this week to demonstrate how to make and decorate a wooden nativity scene. I took with me a set of figures I painted in Mathews, Virginia. The boys are going to cut out similar figures and the girls will then decorate them in their own style. The finished sets will be sold to tourists and the money used to buy essentials for the school. The enthusiam of the students and the teachers was great and we all had a good time. I think the project will work well.

One of the paintings I have been working on here in Panama is the view of the Vinoy Hotel in St. Petersburg. I painted the original hotel several years back. Since then there have been several additions to it. In my letter of July 29th there was a photo showing me sketching the hotel. The photo you see today is the progression of the painting. I still have a way to go but I am very happy with how it is coming to life. I will unveil the painting at my gallery in St. Petersburg on November 15th and 16th.

I am halfway through this stay in Panama and I am comfortably on schedule with the painting program. This Thursday, I will go with Malcolm to the farm, so expect to see photos from there in my next letter.

With love,
