Dear Friends:

It was wonderful to be back in Des Moines with my friends at Kenneth Paul Gallery. Gallery manager Nicole Brown hung my work so beautifully for the show, and I'm always grateful to be represented in such a respectful way. One of their framers reminded me that he has been framing my work for 23 years, and I couldn't believe that he's even that old! I love to see my things framed so tastefully, and I especially love the way he framed the original of Des Moines by the River.

After Saturday's show, I attended a delicious potluck dinner with the Central Iowa Chapter of the P. Buckley Moss Society that was hosted by chapter member Sharon Cubit. Sharon's home is lovely, and it was such fun to be one of the gang. Note the football game on the TV in the pictures below-Iowans love their football! The game was Iowa State vs. Texas Tech; Iowa State won 52-38. Congratulations ISU!

Fun times with the Central Iowa Chapter! L. to R.: Sandy Neal, Judy Roe, Sandy Sheldon, Roni McFall, me, Sandy Moore, Sandy Bauer, Sharon Cubit, MaryAnn Tayloe, and Marilyn Browne.

More members of the Central Iowa family, L. to R.: Bob Moore, Mike Bauer, Ed Tayloe, me, Dave Cubit (holding Mugsy the Yorktese), Sarah Cubit, and Matt Cubit. Last week, I mistakenly identified Mugsy as a Westie, but I found out he's a Yorktese-sorry, Mugsy!

I donated two sketches and a small remarqued print that were auctioned during the evening to benefit the P. Buckley Moss Foundation for Children's Education. The total amount raised was $800. Thank you, Central Iowa Chapter!

If you're going to be in the Richmond, Virginia, area on November 4, you won't want to miss the Foundation's fundraising dinner at The Doubletree Hotel near the Richmond Airport in Sandston, Virginia. There will be live and silent auctions, and a complimentary print will be given to each attendee. For more details, please see my September 15, 2010, newsletter. Gala tickets are $55 per person; please RSVP/mail check and names of attendees by October 20 to Bob Almond, 1309 Westbrook Ave., Richmond, VA 23227-3309; e-mail:; PH: 804-266-8633.

This weekend I'll be in Waynesboro, Virginia, for my Museum Open House and Barn Show. I'm so excited to be in Waynesboro when the fall colors are so beautiful and the flowers are blooming and the grass is lovely and the sun is shining! It's going to be perfect for Waynesboro's Annual Fall Foliage Festival in the downtown area, too. People come from all over to the Festival and then come to The Barn to see me. My son Chris is coming with his children from New York so they can experience it and see the glorious Virginia countryside in the fall, and I'm looking forward to seeing the children again. In keeping with the season, we're releasing a special new giclée on paper during the show titled Colors of Fall, featuring historic Liberty Furnace in Shenandoah County.

Colors of Fall will be released as a limited edition giclée on paper during my October 8-10 Museum Open House and Barn Show. For more information, please contact the P. Buckley Moss Museum at 1-800-343-8643.

Looking forward to seeing you in The Valley!


Remember, the Foundation's 13th Annual Creative Mind Conference will be held on Saturday, October 23, at the Museum in Waynesboro.
