Dear Friends:

Now that the frivolity and funning of Christmas and New Year's are over, I'm settling in here in St. Petersburg, Florida, and have been hard at work on my paintings. I have several going at the same time, including illustrations for my next collaboration with author Merle Good, Reuben and the Balloon. This book has a lot of illustrations, and I've started sixteen so far. With the quiet and lack of demands on my time, I can work day and night.

This work in progress will appear as a double-page spread in Reuben and the Balloon.

I can also show you the painting for the special print for my shows with The Framery in Marietta, Georgia, and Mount Gallery in Tucker, Georgia. I'll be showing with them March 1 and March 2, respectively.

Sixes Mill will be released March 1-2 during shows with The Framery in Marietta, GA, 770-977-8667, and Mount Gallery in Tucker, GA, 770-934-7433. Please contact the galleries for more information.

The print Sixes Mill features the mill by the same name, also known as Gresham's Mill, located in Cherokee County, Georgia. It's the site of an early Cherokee Indian settlement and later a gold mine in the early 1800's. The mill that stands today was rebuilt between 1878 and 1880.

I'm also excited about my new red rose print titled With My Love. With My Love is available as a limited edition offset lithograph, retailing at $70 each, and also as a giclée on thin aluminum plate, finished in lustrous gold or sparkling brushed aluminum. The giclées retail at $140 each. With My Love will make a perfect Valentine's Day gift, a red rose that will last forever. The Moss Portfolio will donate 20% of the retail price from the sale of the offset lithograph and giclée editions to the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children's Education,

I love it in St. Pete! I have absolutely the best light to paint by in my studio, and when I need a break there is so much to do here. This past weekend I went to see the musical Cats with some of my friends at Ruth Eckerd Hall in Clearwater. It's an entirely different version from what I've seen before. It's very exuberant, and I particularly enjoyed the singing parts. Oh, how I love Andrew Lloyd Webber's plays and songs! I especially loved the song Memory that was performed.

Well, it's back to my easel!

With love,

I couldn't resist showing this picture of my granddaughter Sarah Donnelly.  She is the starting shooting guard for Radford High School's Varsity Girls' Basketball Team.  This game was against Carroll County, in which Radford won and Sarah scored 12 points.  Yes, I'm a proud grandma!
