Hello All,

I am back at my home on the Chesapeake in Mathews County, Virginia. On the way from Panama, I stopped off at my gallery in St. Petersburg to meet with Lora Hulse, the Director of Community Relations, Girls Scouts of Sun Coast Council. Together with Tim Finn, the gallery manager and Malcolm, we started planning for a holiday celebration of Girl Scouting at the gallery on Monday, December 9th. I am a lifetime member of the Girl Scouts and my admiration for the movement is immense. In today's world too many of our young are denied the chance to learn the joy of belonging to an organization that fosters ethics and commitment to others. I have made preliminary sketches for a print that will be released that evening to benefit an endowment fund designed to ensure that the movement continues in perpetuity.

Before catching the plane to Richmond this morning, I met with my St. Petersburg walking friends. I first joined "The Street Walkers", as they call themselves, about fifteen years ago when we were a little lighter. We still talk as much these days as we did then but our pace is a wee bit slower. It remains a joy to get back to see them and, of course, get the inside news of what is happening in the town.

On Thursday I will be helping unveil the historic marker at Mount Pleasant, one of Virginia's finest early homes. I painted a scene of the home while in Panama. In the background is a vintage John Deere tractor with me sitting on it. This is the closest I will come to filling a long held wish to own a John Deere.

Pat's print of Mount Pleasant will be available October 11, 2002; $70.

On the weekend I will hold open house at the Barn. Some of you have written me to say you will be there. When we talk be sure to tell me you receive the weekly newsletter.
