Easter was a joy! Over 200 people attended the P.
Buckley Moss Museum’s annual Easter Egg Hunt this past Saturday,
and my grandson Picco Gabellieri did the honors as the Easter Bunny.
The children were hugging his legs, and it was adorable to see.
I would like to give a special thanks to magician Brian Bence, who entertained
both the young and the young-at-heart. He was wonderful!
He even helped get everyone in line after the show.
These are just a few of the 200-and-some people who came to be entertained
by “The Magic of Brian Bence” and to hunt for Easter eggs
at the P. Buckley Moss Museum this past Saturday.
Picco was a natural as the Easter Bunny, and I’m so very proud

I spent Easter Sunday with most of my family in Waynesboro.
We had a wonderful dinner and decorated eggs together. We even
gave prizes for the best eggs.
What a bounty of beautiful Easter eggs!

I’m very excited to be returning to Des Moines,
Iowa, this weekend for my show with Kenneth Paul Gallery on April 18.
The gallery has moved to a new location since I was there last year,
and I can’t wait to show in the new space. The new location
is 10890 Douglas Avenue, Des Moines, Iowa.
Remembering the Iowa State Fair will be released April 18 during
my show with Kenneth Paul Gallery in Des Moines, IA. For more
information, please contact the gallery at 515-278-4378.
Des Moines is the first city that I left Virginia to
show in. I have so many happy memories of friends and experiences.
I even went to the State Fair after a show one night with the gallery
owner and saw Kenny G and Michael Bolton. I didn’t know
who they were at the time, but I certainly remember who they are now
after hearing them and seeing them in action. The Iowa State Fair
is no small thing. There’s a whole section of the fairgrounds
where people camp, bring their trailers, and stay for the whole week.
The Fair is certainly enjoyed.
