Dear Friends:

I decided to stay a little longer in Florida this year, so it was my first Easter without my family. I had a great day, nonetheless, and it was very relaxing. I had breakfast with my friend Mary Margaret Winning, and we went to a wonderful church service together. It was a different service this time, very musical and beautiful.

Later in the day, I drove up to Clearwater Beach to have Easter dinner with my friend Marlyn De Waard. Marlyn is on the P. Buckley Moss Society Board of Directors and is the editor of the Society's newsletter The Sentinel. She just became a resident of Florida with the purchase of her new apartment, which is adorable. We laughed a lot and had a good time.

I was Marlyn's first dinner guest in her new apartment. Marlyn hales from Battle Creek, MI, where she taught journalism, and has been spending her last several winters in Florida. This year, she decided to become a property owner. Marlyn is in Heaven with her view of the water and the boats.

I'm happy to have the extra few days here before starting my show schedule for the year. When I return to Virginia this coming weekend, I'll only be there a couple weeks before I'm off to Italy to see my daughter Becky and her family and to work on etchings in my studio in Cortona. In the meantime, I hope those of you who live in or near Frederick, Maryland, will visit me there on April 17 at McGuire Fine Arts. McGuire Fine Arts is my new authorized dealer in Frederick. They were granted the dealership after Thames Fine Arts closed last year. I'm looking forward to showing with owner David McGuire and launching my newest print of the area, titled Springtime Spires at Carroll Creek.

Springtime Spires at Carroll Creek will be released as a limited edition giclée on paper during my show with McGuire Fine Arts on April 17. For more information, please contact the gallery at 301-695-6567.

The following weekend I'll be in Waynesboro, Virginia, for my Spring Barn Show and Museum Open House . Spring is beautiful in the Valley. Museum Director Corrado Gabellieri tells me that the red bud, azaleas, crocuses, and daffodils are blooming, and it should be gorgeous. I hope you can come and see it, too.

Appalachian Spring will be released during my April 23-25 Museum Open House and Barn Show. Come celebrate spring with me! For more information, please contact the Museum at 540-949-6473 or 1-800-343-8643.

My grandson Picco Gabellieri was the Easter Bunny again this year at the P. Buckley Moss Museum's annual Easter Egg Hunt. He is so adorable with the children. Picco is a senior in high school, and this will be my third grandchild in as many years to graduate and move on to college in the fall.

The Easter Bunny gave lots of hugs, along with eggs and treats, during the Museum's annual Easter Egg Hunt on Saturday, April 3.

Girl Scout Troop #553 from Waynesboro, Va., was a tremendous help to my Museum staff during the Easter Egg Hunt. They not only hid the eggs but also helped usher the children to the hunting areas and for seating. Thanks, girls! Front row, L. to R.: Alice Sweeney (Troop Leader), Tara Kelso, Devan Dedrick (wearing banner), Alice Whitlow, and Raven Sweeney (wearing vest). Back row, L. to R.: Julie Crone (mom), Sydney Crone, Brianna Flesher, Sarah Powell, and Stephanie Whitlow (Troop Leader). Behind the girls is the statue Una Ballerina, by Matteo Lo Greco.

Magician Brian Bence entertained children of all ages during the Museum's Easter Egg Hunt. Everyone loves him!
