Dear Friends,


Such a welcoming sight to see my sign in front of the P Buckley Moss Gallery of Waynesboro for last weekend’s Holiday Gallery Open House!


Returning to Waynesboro for the winter holiday open house always fills my heart with joy. Such fond memories of my children growing up there, as well as catching up with friends and neighbors, makes this visit a highlight of my travel season. I did miss having the school children decorate my Christmas tree at the Barn. 


Humpback Bridge in Alleghany County, Virginia is a subject that I have visited on my canvas a number
of times during my career. There is a certain mystique or intrigue that I feel about some places that compel me to paint them more than once. I was so happy to see and sign this beautifully framed print titled, Humpback Bridge, that I created almost 30 years ago.


To close out my show season for 2020, I return to the P Buckley Moss Gallery of Blacksburg on Saturday, December 19th, and Sunday the 20th. This will be my last show with my daughter Becky for the time being. She will be returning to her home in Italy shortly afterwards. To see her off and to celebrate the holidays, I’d like to invite you to wear your festive holiday sweater when you visit the gallery. The more colorful, the better! This year could use some levity and for those people who choose to participate, you will be entered into a drawing to receive my new Christmas print, Love Brings You Home. I will be welcoming collectors and friends at the gallery from 11-4 on Saturday, and noon until 3 on Sunday.


Love Brings You Home, left, is my 2020 Christmas print. This print was composed using imagery of my mountain home surroundings and is a companion print to All Roads Lead Home, released in 2018. Love Brings You Home, $80, IS: 8-1/2 x 11-5/16 ins. Edition 1,000 and 25 artist proofs; All Roads Lead Home, $80, IS: 8-1/2 x 11-7/16 ins. Edition: 1,000 and 25 artist's proofs


Inspired by the adventures of Becky’s cat Pi, I created
Cat Family Christmas, shown here framed and available at the Blacksburg Gallery. For information on this show, you may contact the gallery through Messenger on Facebook,, or by calling 540-552-6446.


Typically the holiday season is a time to reflect on the year and do a reset for the following year. Words fail me in describing 2020, but one thing has become very clear. This holiday season it is imperative for all of us to look around and check in on our neighbors and community members. We must search out those who have lost family members or jobs, or the means to have enough food or shelter. If all of us did one little thing to lighten another’s load, it would have a profound effect. So I ask you to join me in giving the gift finding and meeting a need in your family or community for this Christmas season. Christmas Together.


Until next week,
