I have been having such great fun painting in St. Petersburg!
I’ve been working on the large convention prints for the two Collectors’
Conventions I’ll be having this year, as well as several small
originals to have on hand at the gallery
shows where I’ll be appearing.
The first Collectors’
Convention will be held May 13-14 in Hershey, Pennsylvania. I’m
excited about the large convention print, because I’m doing something
very different with it. The print’s subject is McConnell’s
Mill, but I’m also working on two other originals, the prints
of which can be hung together as a diptych or on either side of the
main print (as a continuation of the scene, a triptych).
The start of the large Pennsylvania Convention "print",
which will consist of three prints that can be hung together in various
combinations of two or three pieces. Look to see how Pat proceeds in
The second Collectors’
Convention will be held in Roanoke, Virginia, August 12-13. The
large convention print will depict a farm scene from nearby Explore
Pat has been working on some exquisite miniature paintings to take
with her on the show circuit. Other subjects inlude still life flowers
I’m really looking forward to seeing everybody at
both the gallery shows and the conventions, so please mark your calendars!
While I’ve been having fun painting in St. Pete, my Museum
staff enjoyed the opportunity to nurture the creativity of a local Brownie
Troop. Brownie Troop 553 from Waynesboro and their Troop Leaders Elizabeth
Needham and Erin Rothman visited the Museum this past weekend. Museum
docent Pat Carter gave the girls a tour and was impressed by the intelligent
and insightful questions they asked. Museum Administrator Bonnie Stump
supervised the girls in making sun catchers using Plexiglas, glass pebbles,
and stained glass paint. I was thrilled to learn that the girls had
so much fun that they didn’t want to leave and would like to plan
another trip to the Museum soon!

Until next week…
