"To everything there is a season and a time to every purpose under the heaven..." Ecclesiastes 3

After an exciting sixteen year run at Lavender Moon Gallery and the day to day work it entailed, Dux and Patricia Missler decided it was time to embrace the next stage of their life and explore "retirement".

We will miss all of our remarkable customers who are more like our friends and our collectors, collectors who have become more like family, but we will still be on island. We've spent the last sixteen years creating this incredible haven and meeting place, this spot where art and living an artful life combined in a very special way. People from around the world came to visit our gallery every time they were on island. I will miss that...the people who always came in to see what special treasure they could take home. However, we decided to spend our time working more from our home base. We both will continue to paint and write and only see more projects on our horizon. To all our loyal customers, please accept our heartfelt Mahalos for all the years of your support. You were the reason we kept on going and had to give it lots of thought before we made our decision to close the gallery effective end of December 2016.

Patricia Missler's NEW book,
"Pink Elephants
Chocolate Éclairs"

now available for purchase on

Inspiring and poignant, humorous and insightful; at times intimately personal.
The author paints a delightful and colorful portrayal of a young girl growing up in a small South Texas border town and the closeness and loving relationships of family, extended family, and the world they live in. Rich, descriptive, and flavorful, the stories transcend the stereotype of the Mexican-American experience. It is a significant viewpoint of the Mexican-American culture.
"My father's gestures opened our eyes to different possibilities. These simple experiences took us out of our everyday world and opened our lives to a different language, culture, and lifestyle. We were all destined to live in a bigger pond.'
