I had Labor Day Weekend "off" (no shows), but
I still painted! I put the finishing touches on the painting for this
year's Christmas print. It will be titled A Child is Born and
will retail at $100.00. It measures 19 3/4 x 14 3/4 inches, a little
larger than previous Christmas prints, and it has a very different theme.
I'm pleased with it, and I hope you will be, too.
A Child is Born, Pat's painting for this year's Christmas print,
will be available from your local Moss gallery in approximately 4 weeks.
I've also been working on the concept for a special print
edition that will benefit the Red Cross. I'm not quite ready to show
it to you yet, but keep posted. I've been listening to the news while
I work, and my heart is aching for Katrina's victims.
This coming weekend I'll be in Collinsville, Illinois,
showing with The Art Loft Gallery. This month marks The Art Loft's twentieth
year of being a Moss dealer, and it has been ten years since I was last
with them for a show. I'm very excited to have this opportunity to return
to the St. Louis area and visit with Carolyn Welch and her wonderful
staff and friends. I've created a special print edition that will make
its debut at the gallery's show this weekend. City Skaters
features the St. Louis Arch and the Old Courthouse, two famous area
City Skaters, depicting the St. Louis Arch and the Old Courthouse,
will be released at The Art Loft Gallery in Collinsville, IL, where
Pat will be this weekend.
Maybe I'll get to see some of you in St. Louis!
