Dear Friends:

How great it is to be at my home on the Chesapeake Bay! The sunshine and the flowers are glorious, and the creek behind my house is calm except for the ripples created by the lovely breeze.

Pat’s sunroom is her favorite room in her Mathews, Virginia, home. Just outside the window, a beautiful pink azalea is in full bloom.

The show this past weekend at Medlin Art, Ltd., in Leesburg, Virginia, was wonderful, as always. Gallery owner Shirley Medlin and her staff and friends have a wealth of experience and know all the right touches to make a show special. We all had a great time.

A “Happy Mother’s Day” gift! Barbara & D.B. Combs are the new owners of the original watercolor Cabin in the Woods.

This weekend I’ll be in Salem, Virginia, for a show with the Countryside Gallery. Gallery owners Charles Barnitz and Martha Doss and I will release Springtime in the Valley, which features the Salem Museum and the Evans-Webber House. Mill Mountain and its famous star appear in the background.

Springtime in the Valley will be released at Pat’s show with Countryside Gallery in Salem, VA, May 18-19. For more information, call the gallery at 540-389-6829.

After the show, I’ll hit the road and head to St. Petersburg, Florida, for a couple weeks of concentrated painting time. I have a number of important pieces I need to complete, and I’ve been having too much fun in Virginia!

One piece I have managed to finish is the painting for the large Convention print. This year’s Collectors' Convention will be held at the Lancaster Host Resort and Conference Center in Lancaster, Pennsylvania, July 20-21. I’ve always wanted to do a painting of Independence Hall in Philadelphia, so I’ve taken this opportunity to do so. I love the architecture and the history of the building. I spent hours listening to books on tape and painting the countless bricks, but I’m very excited with the result. This magnificent landmark is where both the Declaration of Independence and the United States Constitution were signed by the founding fathers of our country.

Independence Hall will be released as a special subscription print at the time of the Pennsylvania Collectors' Convention. The edition size will be determined by the number of orders received by July 21st. The print retails for $200 (normal retail price is $350). You may place your order with your dealer.

Since I’ll be traveling on my real birthday (May 20), my staff in Mathews, Virginia, held a special birthday lunch for me. We feasted on sinfully delicious meatball subs and homemade apple pie with crumb topping and vanilla ice cream, which is another reason for me to go to St. Pete for a couple weeks—I need to get into my walking routine again!

Pat and her staff in Mathews, Virginia, celebrate her birthday a few days early and dressed up in Pat’s newest T-shirt for the occasion.

’Til next week…


It’s prom time again! Here are a couple of pictures of my granddaughters Kate and Sarah Donnelly at their prom.

L. to R., Will Price, Kate, Sarah, and Abram “Abie” Williams.

Sarah and Abie “hamming” it up. Do you think baseball is important to them?

If you’re in Waynesboro, Virginia, be sure to stop by the P. Buckley Moss Museum and pick up a copy of Virginia Views Magazine. The April/May issue has a wonderful feature article about my art and me that I’m delighted with.
