The weather has been absolutely beautiful here in St. Petersburg, Florida, and I’ve been walking in short sleeves every morning. I treasure my morning walks with my “Streetwalker” friends; what a great way to start the day!
Last week I showed you a picture of this year’s Adult Society Members-Only Print for new and renewing members of the P. Buckley Moss Society, and this week I’m ready to show you a picture of this year’s Junior Society Members-Only Print. I’m thinking about adding a cat on the wall.
The Junior Members-Only Print for 2012.
As many of you know, January is P. Buckley Moss Facebook Month, and it has been such fun to see people’s favorite pieces on Facebook and read their stories. We’ve enjoyed it so much that we’re going to extend it for another month. We’ll have one drawing on February 1 for a $25 gift certificate, as planned, and a second drawing on March 1 for another $25 gift certificate.
For those of you who don’t know what I’m talking about, or who aren’t familiar with Facebook, P. Buckley Moss Galleries, Ltd., has been doing a promotion for the month of January in which collectors may take a picture of themselves with their favorite Moss print and use it as their profile picture on Facebook for at least one week in January. If they also post the picture on the P. Buckley Moss Fan Club page of Facebook, they will be entered in a drawing to win a $25 Moss gift certificate that can be used on www.pbuckleymoss.com.
If you need any help in posting your picture to the Fan Club page, or if you don’t belong to Facebook but would like to participate, please e-mail Jake Henderson at email@example.com with your picture and your story about why this particular print is your favorite, and he will be happy to post it for you.
A couple Friday’s ago, I was invited by my friends Dick and Bonnie-Lou Binnig to a dinner party they were hosting, and I was delighted that my friends Bill and Toni Jernigan of Doraville, Georgia, (near Atlanta) were there, too. Last week, Toni e-mailed the sad news that Dick Binnig’s brother Roger had passed away. The Binnig family is in my thoughts and prayers.
Tuesday afternoon, Finn Gallery owner Tim Finn, Barbara McGovern (mother of St. Petersburg Police Officer Patrick McGovern), and I met with St. Petersburg Police Chief Chuck Harmon, Division Manager Bill Proffitt, and Sun Coast Police Benevolent Association President Mark Marland and Executive Vice President J. D. Lofton to discuss my print to benefit the families of three St. Petersburg, Florida, police officers who lost their lives in the line of duty last year: K-9 Officer Jeffrey Yaslowitz, Sergeant Thomas Baitinger, and Officer David S. Crawford. The print will be released as a giclée on paper during my show with the Finn Gallery March 9-11. Half of the proceeds from each print sold at the Finn Gallery will be donated to the Sun Coast Police Benevolent Association, which will administer the funds.
Fallen Heroes, my tribute to three fallen St. Petersburg, FL, police officers will be released during my show with Finn Gallery, March 9-11. The prints will be available in three sizes, and the prices will be $50, $100, and $200. Half of the proceeds from each print sold at the Finn Gallery will benefit the officers’ families via the Sun Coast Police Benevolent Association.
