Dear Friends,

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 future newsletters.

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 Park.

Pat has been working on some exquisite miniature paintings to take with her on the show circuit. Other subjects inlude still life flowers and geese.

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!

Along with her friends, Kaitlyn learned how to make suncatchers from plexiglas,
glass pebbles and stained glass paint.

Until next week…
