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
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
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!
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!
