Dear Friends:

Mathews, Virginia, finally got snow! I sat here in St. Petersburg, Florida, all weekend wondering about my home in Mathews, and I've been told we got at least 8-12 inches, which is rare for Mathews. It will probably be melted by the end of the week, but the snow at my Museum in Waynesboro, Virginia, will more than likely stick around until another shot of snow comes through this weekend.

This picture was taken from the front porch of one of my staff members in Mathews on Saturday, January 30. Tricia had 8-10 inches at her house!

The same storm system that brought snow to Mathews also dumped more on Waynesboro. Isn't the Museum beautiful!

Looking out my kitchen window in St. Pete, I see people walking along Tampa Bay in their shorts and going out in boats. What a contrast!

Since I knew it was snowing in Virginia, I busied myself thinking warm thoughts and painting most of the weekend. I started on another version of the adult Society Members-Only Print for 2010. I know I showed you a picture of Angel in my Garden last week and said that was the one, but do you like this one better? Let us know what you think! There can be only one.

The picture above shows the latest version of Angel in my Garden, which may be the adult Members-Only Print for 2010. The picture below is the painting I showed you last week. Which do you prefer? Remember, only new or renewing members of the P. Buckley Moss Society in 2010 will be eligible to purchase Angel in my Garden, whichever version it ends up being.

I attended the 37th Annual Art Festival Beth-El on Sunday. The most exciting part of the exhibit for me was the children's exhibit. The work of the 9-12 graders was amazing. Some of those artists are students of Dara Vance, who is an art teacher for Pinellas County and a member of the Moss Pelicans Chapter of the P. Buckley Moss Society. It is so important to have good teachers who can inspire and encourage young people.

A couple years ago, the Moss Pelicans sponsored Dara's attendance at the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children's Education's Annual Creative Mind Conference. Dara brought all that she learned and lots of materials from the conference and shared them with her fellow teachers. She hopes to attend this year's conference, too, which will be held in the fall.

Stay warm!
