I'm back in St. Petersburg, Florida, for a few weeks to get a good
start on the paintings for my fall shows. My studio is in order, I have
my books on tape, and I'm working!
I have to share with you the adorable picture below. It was taken at
the P. Buckley Moss
Museum in Waynesboro, Virginia, last week. The children in the picture
were participating in the P.
Buckley Moss Foundation for Children's Education's Annual Summer
Art Enrichment Program. The theme this year is "Museums: Past,
Present, and Future" and is being conducted in three sessions.
The children are exploring and learning about what a Museum is and,
if they could design their own museum, just what they would like to
see put in it. The second session will end this Friday, June 25, and
the Foundation will hold an art exhibit at the Museum on Friday evening.
Parents, grandparents, and siblings are all invited to come and see
what the children have accomplished during the week. The third session
will be held in August.

Just for fun, I'll also share a picture that was taken the first week
of June with my Mathews, Virginia, friend Janice Hudgins. Janice had
invited me to a Mother-Daughter Dinner at her church, Bethel United
Methodist in Onemo, Virginia. Onemo is a little community in Mathews
County, and it's pronounced "oh-NEE-mo". The dinner was a
potluck, and the food was so good! Some of the people dressed up like
members of the congregation from the past, and there was even a man
in a replica Confederate soldier uniform. That was going way back-Bethel
is a very old church!
