Dear Friends:

It was delightful to be among so many happy, friendly people this past weekend in Columbus, Ohio. Gallery Art Center was celebrating its 28th anniversary (and 27th year as a Moss dealer!), and I was so happy to be there and be part of it. I was particularly pleased to see my old friends Lester and Mary Borlo and their daughter Suzi Campbell who, together with Peter Vatsures, own and run the gallery. It was fun reminiscing with them about the good times we've shared at past shows and conventions.

Lester, Mary, Suzi, and the Gallery Art Center family showed their tremendous generosity by donating a portion of the proceeds of the sales of their special show print Our Lady of Mount Carmel Park, as well as a portion of the proceeds of Friday's overall sales, to Mount Carmel Hospice and Mount Carmel Hospital's Unit 3-West Behavioral Health Services through the Mount Carmel Foundation. The Gallery also sponsored a fundraising dinner for them Friday evening.

Staff members of Mount Carmel Hospital's Unit 3-West Behavioral Health Services gave Pat this T-shirt and hat. Here Pat proudly models her new apparel, saying that they are most appropriate for her.

This Thursday through Sunday, I'll be undertaking an exciting show schedule when I appear at Martin's Gallery in Hanover, Pennsylvania, Thursday evening; People's Place Gallery in Intercourse, Pennsylvania, Friday and Saturday; and Thames Fine Arts & Framing in Frederick, Maryland, Sunday. My daughter Patty and I will drive to these shows together, and I'm looking forward not only to seeing my Pennsylvania and Maryland friends but also to having a mother-daughter road trip!

Martin's Gallery will be featuring Woodland Mill during their show. Mills are one of my favorite subjects to paint. They represent a link to our history and to a time when life was simpler and less hurried. I find something very solid and comforting about them.

Woodland Mill is the show piece for Martin's Gallery, Hanover, PA, where Pat will appear on November 10th. For information, call the gallery at (717) 632-3355.

People's Place will be debuting Autumn at the Cloister, which depicts two of the buildings at the Ephrata Cloister, a National Historic Landmark dating to 1732, in Pennsylvania's Lancaster County.

Autumn at the Cloister, to be released at People's Place Gallery, Intercourse, PA, where Pat will be appearing on November 11th and 12th. For information, call (717) 768-7171.

Thames Fine Arts and Framing will be debuting The Lighthouse Keeper at Thomas Point. The Thomas Point Shoal Lighthouse is located in the Chesapeake Bay just south of Annapolis, Maryland. It has the distinction of being one of only nine lighthouses in the country designated as a National Historic Landmark.

The Lighthouse Keeper at Thomas Point, to be released at a show with Pat at Thames Gallery, Frederick, MD, on November 13th. For information, call (301) 663-0707.

Let's all take a moment to remember our armed forces, both past and present, this Friday on Veterans' Day and be grateful to them for keeping us free.

Well, I'm off to repack my bags and load up the car. 'Til next week, take care.
