Dear Friends:

Seasons greetings from Waynesboro, Virginia, where I'll be signing at the P. Buckley Moss Museum this Friday through Sunday, December 17-19, from 1:00 to 3:00 p.m. Please note that I will be at the Museum and not The Barn. The "Moss in Miniature" exhibit is still up at the Museum, and everyone who has been to see it gives it rave reviews. Thank you, everyone!

One of the highs of my visit to Kingsport, Tennessee, last week was the time I spent at the Boys' & Girls' Club of Greater Kingsport. The Club has a wood-working class, and the children learn to turn wooden plates and bowls. This was my third year of painting an image onto one of the plates or bowls, which is then auctioned in the spring. The next fundraising dinner and auction for the Boys' & Girls' Club will be held April 9, 2011, in Kingsport.

I very much enjoyed my visit to the Boys' & Girls' Club of Greater Kingsport last Tuesday. Note the wooden plate I'm holding with the mouse painted on it.

I had a busy couple of days in Kingsport, as we unveiled my new poster and print celebrating the Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion. The Reunion is a three-day music festival, and much more, that has been held every third weekend in September, starting in 2001, on State Street in historic downtown Bristol, Tennessee/Virginia. Bristol is located on the Tennessee-Virginia state line, so half of the city is in Tennessee, and the other half is in Virginia. The next festival will be held September 16-18, 2011.

The unveiling was held at the Theatre Bristol, and we presented both the City of Bristol, TN, and the City of Bristol, VA, with framed posters. Standing at far left is Kathy Leninski, 2010 Bristol Rhythm & Roots Reunion Board Chair, and standing far right is Bristol, VA, Mayor Don Ashley.

I had TV interviews in both Johnson City and Bristol, Tennessee, Tuesday, as well as an unveiling ceremony and reception in Bristol and my visit to the Boys' & Girls' Club in Kingsport. On Wednesday, I was showing with my friends at Up Against the Wall Gallery in Kingsport. It was such fun seeing so many smiling faces and that beautiful gallery!

I was thrilled to see the members of the Entertainment Co. Quartet of Sweet Adelines International at Up Against the Wall's show on Wednesday. They came and sang for me at last year's show with Up Against the Wall, and it's becoming a tradition that I look forward to. L. to R.: Dondra Warden, Marla Edwards, me, Susie Pratt, and Lula Ray Hawthorne.

When the show ended Wednesday evening, my daughter Patty and I headed back to Waynesboro for the night, and the very next day I was off to the Richmond airport for my show with Gallery Art Center in Columbus, Ohio. It was such fun being with the Borloglou-Campbell family again and their wonderful collectors.

Back row, L. to R.: Suzi's husband Steve Campbell, Chris Campbell, and Peter Vatsures. Lester and Mary Borloglou, Peter Vatsures, and Suzi and her family own and operate Gallery Art Center and have been carrying my work since January, 1981. Lester passed away a few years ago about a month after my show with them that year. I'm so glad we got to laugh and have fun together one last time.

Staffing the show, L. to R.: Virginia Carvour, Jackie Campbell, Suzi Campbell, Steve Campbell, me, and Peter Vatsures.

O-H-I-O! Buckeye fans, L. to. R.: Grant Shivley, me, Julie Shivley, and Kevin Shivley. Note my new O-H-I-O print that I'm holding up.

It was such a pleasure meeting the Hollingsworth family, and I loved the way they've had their 12 Days of Christmas ornaments framed. L. to R.: David Hollingsworth, Meredith Hollingsworth, me, and Patty Hollingsworth.

Gallery Art Center's show was my last one for this year; stay tuned for my spring show schedule. It's time now for me to get ready for Christmas!
