Wow! My visit to Des Moines and Urbandale, Iowa, was even better than
I had imagined. Around 7,500 people turned out to support Saturday morning’s
Walk for Juvenile Diabetes Research that was sponsored by Hy-Vee, Inc.
I had fully intended to participate in the walk, but I was so busy signing
the benefit print (The Walk) I had created for the occasion
that I never got around to it. It was great fun, though, and I really
enjoyed meeting all the people and knowing that there is so much support
for this very worthwhile cause.
Pat was kept so busy signing prints of The Walk at the
Walk for Juvenile Diabetes Research, sponsored by Hy-Vee, Inc. that
she had no time to walk.

Pat's print, The Walk, which is being sold by Hy-Vee, Inc.
and Moss galleries everywhere to raise money for diabetes research.
For more information on how you can help support Juvenile Diabetes Research,
please visit Hy-Vee’s website at www.hy-vee.com,
or ask your favorite Moss dealer about The Walk.
Kenneth Paul Gallery’s show in Urbandale was wonderful,
too. The Saturday and Sunday show was very well attended. In fact, people
were lined up at the door! Kenneth Paul’s staff had done an excellent
job of promoting and organizing the event, and I was thrilled to see
so many smiling, friendly faces.
Taking a Rest: A show with Pat can be exhuasting, but is always
fun. Collectors browse in Kenneth Paul Gallery, Urbandale, Iowa, this
past weekend while awaiting their turn to visit with Pat.
Hats off to the Central Iowa Chapter of the P.
Buckley Moss Society! Chapter members volunteered to help out at
both the Juvenile Diabetes Walk and the gallery show. They really helped
make things flow smoothly and made me feel very at home and well cared
Pat and friends at Kenneth Paul Gallery. From left, Paul Poli, owner

This coming weekend, I’ll be showing at The
Finn Gallery here in St. Petersburg, Florida. Then it will only
be a couple more weeks before I return to Virginia.
I’ll be going to Waynesboro first. The
Museum, in conjunction with the P.
Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education, will be
hosting an Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, March 26, at 2:00 p.m. There
will be special appearances by Storyteller Susan Blanton and the Easter
Bunny! The Easter Egg Hunt is for pre-school to fourth grade children,
and pre-registration is required so contact the Museum soon to sign
up. I’m looking forward to seeing you there!
