Dear Friends:

Jack Frost decided to make an appearance in Waynesville, Ohio, this past weekend, and the cold air got everyone in a festive, holiday mood. Canada Goose Gallery was packed with people, and owners Laura DeRamus and Kathy Heims did an outstanding job of promoting the show. A big thank-you to Laura, Kathy, and their staff and friends!

I really enjoyed my visit to Waynesville High School Friday morning. I visited with twenty students who plan on having a career in the arts. It was fun working with the small group in a classroom setting. The attitude of the teachers and the students was wonderful, and they have an excellent art program there. The school’s atmosphere was so positive, and it was an invigorating place to give a talk.

Leanne Foley, art instructor, is sitting up front in the denim skirt, Joyce Kikos, middle school teacher and high school art teacher, is sitting behind her and Superintendent Tom Isaacs is standing in the back.

Friday evening we attended a dinner and auction to benefit the Court Appointed Special Advocates (CASA) program. CASA’s mission is to support and promote court-appointed volunteer advocacy for abused and neglected children so they can thrive in safe, permanent homes. CASA does such vital work on behalf of children, and I was very happy to participate in the fundraising event.

Sunday morning I had to miss out on the fantastic breakfast at the Hammel House Bed & Breakfast where I was staying. I had to be at the Home Holiday Show next door to the Dayton Airport for a live interview with WHIO-TV at 9:30 a.m. The Home Holiday Show was sponsored by the TV station, and the live interview brought in lots of people. Most of the merchants in Waynesville were there. They had two entire rows of booths, and a big banner that proclaimed “Shops of Waynesville.” We had fun getting to know one another.

This weekend promises to be just as busy and exciting. Thursday I’ll be in Alexandria, Virginia, for a show with my friends at the Prince Royal Gallery. We’ll be debuting Moonlight Love, which depicts a romantic evening buggy ride. Friday through Sunday, I’ll be showing at Graphics, Etc., in Roanoke, Virginia, and we’ll be debuting A Blessed Day, which features historic St. Andrews Cathedral.
