Invited to lecture at Ganexa Undiversidad and the residence of US Ambassador William Eaton in Panama City, Panama.
Lectures consisted of artistic processes to achieve desired effects with oil paint. Questions arose about the unique problem of traditional painting methods within a tropical climate, dealing with high humidity, heat, and molds.
