Dear Friends,


“History is a cyclic poem written by time upon the memories of man.” Percy Bysshe Shelley


As an artist I have great fun when it comes to visiting and capturing historical places on my canvas. Once I have begun a painting, I get into the history of the place and can put myself there. I recently completed such a painting and it is of the Glen Burnie home in Winchester, Virginia. I will be releasing the print on November 3rd at King James Galleries of Winchester.


I’d like to share information on this lovely home that I found online at  Their website states, “The Glen Burnie House sits on land that Winchester founder James Wood surveyed, claimed, and then settled in 1735. The oldest portions of the house were built by Wood’s son Robert in 1794 and 1797. After passing
through generations of Wood and Glass families, the 254-acre Glen Burnie property came to be owned by Wood descendant Julian Wood Glass Jr. (1910–1992) in the 1950’s. Glass preserved and renovated his ancestral home from 1958 to 1959. Then, aided by his partner at the time, R. Lee Taylor, he transformed the house into an opulent country retreat surrounded by six acres of formal gardens and furnished with one of the most remarkable private collections of decorative arts ever assembled in the Shenandoah Valley. After his death and as a condition of his will, the house and gardens were opened to the public on a seasonal basis in 1997. They are now an important part of this year-round regional history museum complex known as the Museum of the Shenandoah Valley.”

My new release
, Winter at Glen Burnie.


It is always a pleasure to visit Winchester and this thoughtfully appointed and decorated gallery. With the big comfy chairs and fireplace, this spacious gallery has the feel of home.  I am also looking forward to reconnecting with friends from the Daughter of the Stars Moss Society Chapter. I do hope if you are in the area you can stop by and share a refreshment with me.


What a delightful trip I had last week to Canada Goose Gallery in Waynesville, Ohio. Laura DeRamus, the gallery owner, has changed the gallery considerably since my last visit. Her approach was innovative, and it was fun to see.


A gallery show at Canada Goose is much more like a visit with friends. Pictured with me are Rita Sheets (L) and Karen Morris (R). Rita and her husband Dan purchased one of my originals.


A lovely quilt featuring one of my hand painted centerpieces is part of an ongoing raffle being held by the gallery. Drawing will be April 20th, which is the Saturday before Easter. Tickets are $1 each, or 6 tickets for $5. Proceeds will benefit Pals for Life Breast Cancer Support Group.  They help provide mammograms, prosthesis and other services for breast cancer patients whose insurance do not cover their costs.  If you would like to purchase tickets, please call Canada Goose Gallery at 513-897-4348. I have worked with this group for 30 years, we’ve all become friends, and have helped so many people.


The gallery’s photo booth provided a lot of seasonal levity!
With me is Rochelle Collins from Lebanon TV channel 6. She interviewed me on Friday and will use the program to assist with her promotion and encouragement for children to become involved in the arts. The program will air in sometime in the next few weeks.


Until next week,
