I work with my painting students in person or using services like Facetime and Skype, and in those cases, more identifiable data is created and collected as a result of the process. At any time, you can choose to no longer participate in a workshop or Mentoring, but your work prior to that point becomes a permanent part of the work or documentation that occurs with any group or at any venue.

Thanks for supporting artists and for your interest in my paintings.
