It was wonderful being with Margaret Moser and her son
Michael once again in Fairfax, Virginia. The Moser Gallery show was
like a homecoming for me, since the Moser’s have been representing
my work for almost twenty years. Margaret and Michael have a unique
chemistry that enables them to provide a level of customer service that’s
hard to find elsewhere, and I’m very proud to have them representing
Pat visits with Margaret and Michael Moser, owners of Moser Gallery,
I’m now eagerly awaiting the arrival of my daughter
Patty. Patty has been living in Colorado for many years now but has
decided to move back to Virginia. Patty and her friend Mary will be
living next door to me in Mathews in the house I bought for my mother,
and it will be such a treat to have them nearby and helping to look
out for things when I’m away at shows.
Since my arrival in Mathews after the Barn Show, I’ve
been painting away. I have a long list of paintings to complete for
gallery shows, and I’m excited to show you Wee House in the
Woods. This will be released as a print edition at Designer Art
& Framing’s show in Ashland, Kentucky, September 16-17, and
I’ll be there to sign them!
Wee House in the Woods has been created by Pat for release on September
16 & 17 at Designer Art and Framing, Ashland, Kentucky.
On behalf of the P.
Buckley Moss Foundation for Children's Education, Pat receives a
from Moss on the Chesapeake Chapter of the P. Buckley Moss Society.
The donation will be used
to sponsor one college education student to attend the 2005
Creative Minds Conference in Legonier, Pennsylania. The ceremony
took place at MAG-The Gallery during Pat's appearance there. Patty Zierow,
Manager of The Gallery, (middle), and Dr. Linda K. Wilson, President

This week I appeared at MAG-The Gallery here in Mathews.
“MAG” stands for Mathews Art Group, and it provides a venue
for local artists, of whom Mathews has many, to display and sell their
Pat with Gibson Moon and his mother Jean Moon. Audrey Wright of
The Mathews Art Group watches on.
Mathews is a small, rural county on the Chesapeake Bay
that has been the home of farmers and fishermen since Colonial days.
The natives, as they call themselves, are craftsmen and artisans in
their own right. In recent years, many people have moved to the county,
seeking its historic culture and quiet atmosphere. The result is a community
with a unique blend of old and new ideas and ways of doing things and
a setting where arts and crafts from long ago are appreciated side by
side with paintings and crafts created by newer residents. I’m
very happy to be able to call Mathews “home.”
’Til next week…
Pat has created this pencil sketch which will be given, one per
person, to everyone who attends the Collectors' Convention in Roanoke,

famous star on Mill Mountain outside Roanoke.
