What a fantastic weekend I had in Atlanta! What fun to
see so many old friends and have the chance to make new ones! I started
showing in Atlanta about 25 years ago, so many of these friendships
go back a long way.
Both Barry Watson at The Framery and David Cylc at Mount
Gallery put on great shows and treated me like a member of their families.
I felt very at home.

This Friday, Saturday, and Sunday The Moss Portfolio will
be holding a Dealers’ Meeting at my home here in St. Petersburg,
Florida. This is an informal meeting in which the galleries that represent
my art can share their ideas with members of my staff as well as hear
our ideas. It’s very productive and fun, and I’m looking
forward to it greatly.
Pat appears at Mount Gallery for a show this past weekend.
The following weekend I will be in Des Moines and Urbandale,
Iowa. On Saturday, March 5, I will be participating in a fundraising
walk for juvenile diabetes research, sponsored by Hy-Vee Grocery Stores.
I have published a special print edition for the occasion. The Walk
will be available for purchase at Saturday morning’s benefit walk
and afterward from Moss galleries everywhere. The print will retail
at $80.00, and a portion of the proceeds will be given to juvenile diabetes
The Walk was created to benefit juvenile diabetes research.
Later that day and also on Sunday, I will be appearing
at a show at Kenneth Paul Gallery. This is the first of several shows
I will be appearing at in Iowa this year, and I’m really excited
about it. Like Atlanta, Iowa is a place where I’ve made many friends
over the years. These shows will seem like a family reunion to me!
Faithful will make its debut at Kenneth Paul’s show March
5 & 6.
Before I go, I want to thank everyone for their prayers
for my sister Mary and The Country Framer’s Ginger Cloonan. It’s
been working…please keep it up!
