My show with the Finn Gallery in St. Petersburg, Florida, this past
weekend was busy but wonderful! The gallery was packed with friends
old and new, and it was great fun.
Pat's collectors fill the spacious and airy gallery at Finn Gallery
this past weekend during Pat's signing.
I need to give a special thanks to gallery owner Tim Finn,
who used to be the manager of my St. Petersburg gallery before it closed
in 2004. Tim helps me with many things when I’m in St. Pete, from
shipping my newly finished originals to The Moss Portfolio in Mathews,
Virginia, to receiving messages and reference material for me. Between
helping me and setting up his show, Tim has been a very busy man!
As most of you know, I’m flying to Italy the end of this week,
and I’ve been painting almost constantly to finish up several
pieces that will be released at shows later this spring. I’m looking
forward to showing you pictures of those a little closer to their show
dates. Since I’ll be returning from Italy just before my
April Open House and Barn Show in Waynesboro, Virginia, I’ll
show you a picture of the special print that will be released at the
P. Buckley Moss Museum
Spirit of the Valley, to be released at Pat's Museum and Barn Show,
April 21-23. For more information, call (800) 343-8643.
I’m sorry that I’ll miss the Museum’s
Third Annual Easter Egg Hunt, which will be held on the Museum grounds
at 1:00 p.m. on Saturday, April 8. I know it’s going to be fun
for everyone who comes, because the Easter Bunny will be there as well
as Storyteller Susan Blanton, who delights young and old alike with
her tales. This is a free event, co-sponsored by the P.
Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education, but I recommend
calling the Museum to pre-register (1-800-343-8643 or 540-949-6473).
The Easter Bunny likes to know how many goodies to bring! BYOB—Bring
