The Valley was glorious this past weekend, with the trees full of vibrant
fall color and the air crisp and cool. I couldn’t ask for better
weather for my October Barn Show and Museum
Open House. Apparently, the weather agreed with lots of other people,
too, because Waynesboro’s Fall Foliage Festival and the Museum
and Barn were brimming with people.
I have to say the distinction for traveling the farthest distance went
to a delightful group who came all the way from China! I told them about
my friend and neighbor, Tony, in Panama who was from China. Tony and
his wife Silvia invited us to all their Chinese celebrations in Bocas
del Toro. When I told the group at the Barn how much I enjoyed Tony
and Silvia’s celebrations and customs, they invited me to visit
them in China. Oh, how I would love to do that!
The Yu Yang Kuei Cheng family (on Pat's right) came to visit Pat
at the Barn with thier hosts, Mr. and Mrs. James Vanlaningham.
My daughter Mary and her family had a busy weekend, too.
Mary’s daughters Kate and Sarah were chosen to be on the Homecoming
Court for Radford High School. Their younger brother Sean was Sarah’s
escort. Kate was voted Homecoming Queen, and Sarah was so happy for
her she cried.

This weekend I’ll be in Story City, Iowa, with
my friends at The Country Gallery. Gallery owner Pat Hill (another Pat!)
has been representing my work since 1987, and I’m looking forward
to being with her for another show. We’ll be releasing two prints,
Hoop Dreams and Celebrating Our Anniversary.
For release at The Country Gallery, Story City, IA on October 20-21,
Celebrating Our Anniversary and Hoop Dreams. For more information
