Dear Friends:
Another exciting weekend!  My daughter Patty and I set off bright and early Friday morning to drive to Kingsport, Tennessee, for a show with my old friends Mike and Lisa Anne Milhorn at Up Against the Wall Gallery.  On the way down, we stopped at WCYB-TV in Bristol, where I was interviewed live by news anchor Johnny Wood.  Then we were off to Up Against the Wall, where Kingsport’s Mayor Dennis R. Phillips presented me with a proclamation declaring it P. Buckley Moss Day and also gave me The Key to the City.  What an honor!

Mayor Dennis R. Phillips of Kingsport, TN, presented me The Key to the City!

Mike and Lisa Anne have been representing my work in Kingsport since 1981, so they are very much part of my extended Moss family and it is always a joy to be with them.  We understand one another very well.  Their home is featured in the print Cabin in the Hills, which was the large convention print for my Collectors’ Convention that was held in Kingsport in 2004.

My work and I are up against the wall at Up Against the Wall!  I’m standing beside a framed print of Tennessee Heritage, which was released during the show.  Photo courtesy of Ned Jilton, II, Kingsport Times News.

The show on Saturday was wonderful, and it was great to see so many old and new friends.  Kingsport is a beautiful city, with a rich history and a delight to visit.  I’ve painted many scenes of the area.
I’m spending some time this week with my daughter Mary Donnelly and her family in Radford, Virginia.  I plan on going back to Waynesboro this weekend, though, for one more visit at my Museum before Christmas and to greet my daughter Becky Ghezzi and her family, who live in Italy.  They’re coming this weekend for an extended visit, and I’m very much looking forward to having them with me for Christmas.
Monday night I got to see yet another of my granddaughter Sarah Donnelly’s basketball games, this time in Radford.  Radford won the game against visiting Christiansburg.  Sarah scored twelve points.  I also got to help my daughter Mary, Sarah’s mother, in the concession stand.  Boy!  Did that bring back memories!

I got to be a basketball mom for a night and helped serve up hot dogs, pizza, nachos, and chili at my granddaughter Sarah Donnelly’s game at Radford High School.  L. to R.:  Me, Marti Hale, and my daughter Mary.  The concession stand is run by the Radford Booster Club.

Up Against the Wall’s show was my last one for this year.  My next show will be with The Framery in Marietta, Georgia, the first weekend in March, followed by a show at the Finn Gallery in St. Petersburg, Florida, March 13-15.  Since I’m going to have a couple months without shows, I’m tempted not to wear any makeup until the first of March!  Just kidding!
’Til next week…Merry Christmas!
