I expect a lot of physical work this spring and summer so I look forward to ending each day in my new bathtub with candlelight from the Glassybaby selected for me by my grandson Elias. He chose this color based on my cool painting palette.
Also complete is 8 weeks of online mentoring of Canadian artist Barbara DeMott through two paintings. She was my test case and I have a better idea now of how I might structure online mentoring in the Fall to assist several students to more successful work. If you are interested in having your name added to my online mentoring list, email me. Below is Barbara DeMott's painting, shared with her permission. Great job Barbara!

|For Evermore, pastel, 24 x 18 inches|
|About 70% complete.|
Evermore" this morning after looking at it daily on my easel for about a week.
I keep forgetting to mention the reducing glass that I've been using to see the entire image even when I'm standing very close to it. Also, I want to mention the dry brush I use to lift pastel off the paper in a random gentle manner. See the photo below.
