Dear Friends:

I’ve just put the finishing touches on the painting for the large Williamsburg Convention print, and I’m really excited to show you the finished version. Those of you who read my newsletters every week will have seen the progression of this piece from start to finish.

Carry Me Back, the large print for the Williamsburg convention, features a colonial era plantation home, characteristic of the Chesapeake Bay, and the unusual tidal mill that sits at the edge of the property.This large convention print will cost $200 and is available to everyone (you do not need to attend the convention to purchase it). The edition size will be determined by the number of orders received by the close of the convention on September 23rd and the print will be shipped four weeks later.

I’m also pleased to show you the painting for the small convention print, which depicts a shop-lined street in Colonial Williamsburg.

The small convention print: A Colonial Williamsburg street scene. This print, $70.00, is available to those ticket holders who attend the convention in Williamsburg, Virginia, September 22-23.

For convention ticket information, call your Moss dealers or (800) 430-1320.

My daughter Patty flew down to St. Petersburg, Florida, to be with me on the Fourth of July and to drive back to Virginia with me, just in time for my Barn Show and Museum Open House. Patty is excited about the two prints that will be released at the Museum this weekend. Both feature Sherando Lake and bring her fond memories of her summers growing up in Waynesboro. On the Fourth, we watched the fireworks over the Bay from my studio windows.

Sherando Lake Memories and Summer at Sherando will be released this weekend, July 7-9, during Pat's appearance at the P. Buckley Moss Museum. For more information, please call (800) 343-8643.

Since I’ve been in Florida, the P. Buckley Moss Museum has hosted a two-week long preschool program (two sessions), which was sponsored by the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children’s Education. The theme was “M & M’s and Me,” with a focus on four different artists whose last names start with the letter “M.” Monday’s artist was Mondrian, Tuesday’s was Matisse, Wednesday’s was Monet, and Thursday’s was Moss—me! Friday was an extra special day, which recapped everything and emphasized the individual child, the “Me” of the theme. Thirty-six children attended the two sessions and participated in art activities ranging from drawings and paintings to sculptures and cats. Some of those children had learning differences.

Leslie Allen teaches preschool children in a two week program sponsored by the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children's Education and held at the P. Buckley Moss Museum.

I’m so grateful to the Museum and the Foundation for making it possible to provide fun learning opportunities to little ones. Who knows? One of these children could grow up to be a future Master. It’s so important to encourage and help children to find their special niche in life.

’Til next week…
