Celebrating Friends For Life


You ever wonder what your dog is thinking? What he or she wants to say?
We’d all love if our dogs could talk – some of the time, at least. In lieu of that, I would like to share some wonderful pieces of art to remind us of our very best friends….and a few quotes about dogs, by the humans who love them. They’re like family to us, and why not celebrate it?
“Dogs do speak, but only to those who know how to listen.”
Orhan Pamuk

Recipe: Cloud Eggs

Cloud Eggs Recipe


  • Nonstick cooking spray
  • 4 large eggs
  • Kosher salt
  • 4 slices buttered brioche toast, for serving
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Line a baking sheet with parchment and coat with nonstick cooking spray.
  2. Coat 4 small bowls with nonstick cooking spray. Separate the eggs and put the whites into a medium bowl and the yolks in the small bowls (1 yolk per bowl). Add a large pinch of salt to the egg whites and beat with an electric mixer on low speed until stiff peaks form, 2 to 3 minutes.
  3. Dollop 4 large spoonfuls of the egg whites onto the prepared baking sheet and make a small well in the middle of each with the back of a spoon. Bake the whites until they are firm, no longer wet and just beginning to turn brown, about 6 minutes. Gently pour 1 yolk into the well of each white. Bake until the edges of the yolk just start to set while still being runny, 3 to 4 minutes. Season with salt.
  4. Serve on top of buttered brioche toast.

Let Art Comfort & Inspire with P Buckley Moss Church Architectural Art.


Spring at Callaway Chapel limited edition print by P Buckley Moss features a small church in a wooded area in colors of soft turquoise, blues and cream with white and black trees.

Address: Spring at Callaway features the Ida Cason Callaway Memorial Chapel at Callaway Gardens in Pine Mountain, Georgia.
Nestled in a serene forest surrounding Falls Creek Lake, the Ida Cason Callaway Memorial Chapel was carefully planned by Cason Callaway himself as a tribute to his mother. Inspired by 16th-century Gothic chapels, it is highlighted by a variety of materials native to its region, including fieldstone quartz. Beautifully crafted stained glass windows depict pines, soft woods and hardwoods, as well as the Southern forest in a progression of seasons. The majestic sounds of the chapel’s custom-built Möller pipe organ ring out during seasonal concerts.
Today, the chapel is used for small weddings as well as a Non-Denominational Service each Sunday morning throughout the Summer and during the Christmas season.
“You are my hiding place; you will protect me from trouble
and surround me with songs of deliverance.”
Psalm 32:7-8

Reflections of Places We Love

Monticello Visitor limited edition print by P Buckley Moss features one of our country's primary architectural masterpieces designed by Thomas Jefferson. Soft cream and green colors colors while the building boasts a beautiful burgundy red brick.


As we all are inside looking out our windows for signs of life (much like our dogs do every day!) it is fun to think about the places we love so much. Mike and I were remembering all the places we visited so many years ago. The family drives, the childhood memories! Place is so important for our memories. The colors, shapes, stories, and visits we all take. Well, we are still taking trips now, just in a more reflective way. I do enjoy revisiting the stories of our favorite buildings and resting spots.

I thought that we could think about how these special places also influence what an artist paints. Much like an artist can find inspiration in a person’s face, artists have long found inspiration in a landmark or place. They will often return to that place over and over again in their work, depicting it in varying light and at different times of the year. Like a beloved person, these places mean a lot to the artist, and in the case of Pat, these places do hold a special place in her heart.

I love glancing up around the rooms in my home and revisiting all of these special places that are depicted in colorful pieces of art. The many conversations they spurred over Thanksgiving dinners, or just quiet moments when its raining outside. I like how the colors brighten up a room and capture my memories.

For me, and hopefully for you all too, these quiet reflective times at home are a perfect reminder of how much we value the places in our lives that have meaning. I will be creating a special blast each week with architecture that I love in art, but for now, enjoy the pieces below. Just click the image to learn more about it.

Be safe and find meaning in our quiet moments at home.

The Best Scalloped Potatoes Recipe

Scalloped Potatoes
1 clove garlic, smashed
2 tablespoons unsalted butter
2 1/4 pounds Yellow Finn potatoes or other waxy-style potato
2 cups half-and-half
1 tablespoon kosher salt
Freshly ground black pepper
Pinch nutmeg
  1. Preheat the oven to 350 degrees F. Rub the garlic around the inside of an 8 by 8 by 2-inch casserole dish and let it dry. Reserve the remaining garlic. Rub the butter around the inside of the dish. Reserve the remaining butter.
  2. Peel and thinly slice the potatoes on a mandoline or vegetable slicer (about 1/8-inch-thick slices).
  3. In a medium saucepan, combine the garlic, butter, potatoes, half-and-half, salt, pepper to taste, and nutmeg. Bring to a boil, lower the heat to medium-high, and cook, stirring, until the mixture has thickened, about 5 minutes. Transfer the mixture to the prepared dish. Shake the pan so the potatoes are distributed evenly.
  4. Bake the potatoes, basting occasionally, until lightly browned and bubbly, about 1 hour. Remove from the oven and let cool for 10 minutes before serving.

Reflecting On Art Inspires Creative Energy



Flower art by P Buckley Moss features and artistic way of bringing gardening inside to enjoy. Golden colors with the addition of rust, rose, blues and soft yellows.

With so many people working at home, some with small children doing lessons in the other room, employers are worried about the creative resources that people have while working.
Computer screens burn our eyes with bright digital colors–oftentimes tiring them and us in the process! But new research reports that just seeing works of art, and taking just a moment or two to reflect on them, will enhance our creative energy!








Office art by P Buckley Moss features and artistic way of bringing inspiration to your workspace.

Appreciating art inspires our creative minds to look at things differently. In South Korea they did a study of how bringing art into the work space could enhance employee
creative abilities. And creative energy is important because it is the foundation of innovation. Who doesn’t want to have an innovative workforce?

In the Journal of Business Research, these scholars brought art into the workplace, or rather, the workspace, and wanted to see who felt more inspired in daily lives. Inspiration is what allows us to perform tasks more creatively, and ultimately better!

The key is look at the art and spend a moment really enjoying its colors, pondering where it was painted, what is happening and how the artist might have given us a different perspective.
I share some of most favorite art works that people have brought into their workplace–be it home or office. Take a moment and wonder. How creative could you be?

Hummus Recipe       Hummus Recipe.      Hummus Recipe.     Hummus Recipe


  • 3 1/2 cups canned OR soaked and cooked chickpeas/garbanzo beans
  • 1 tbsp baking soda (optional – to help skin the chickpeas, then rinsed away – see instructions below)
  • 1/3 cup tahini paste
  • 8 roasted garlic cloves , or more to taste (you may substitute 1-3 fresh garlic cloves if you prefer a stronger sharper flavor)
  • 1/4 cup fresh lemon juice , or more to taste
  • 1 tbsp extra virgin olive oil , plus more for garnish
  • 3/4 tsp cumin
  • 1/2 tsp salt , or more to taste
  • Pinch cayenne pepper
  • Paprika and fresh minced parsley for garnish optional
  • If using canned chickpeas, drain and rinse them first. Drain the beans after cooking and let them return to room temperature.
  • To make this hummus ultra creamy, you should peel the cooked chickpeas. While this step is optional, I do recommend it for creamy results. To peel and remove the chickpea skins easily, place them in a skillet with 1 tbsp baking soda and stir, coating all the beans thoroughly with baking soda. Heat up the skillet over medium, stirring the beans constantly, for 2-3 minutes until the beans are completely heated throughout and the skins begin to separate from the beans
  • Pour the hot beans into a large mixing bowl, then immerse them in 3-4 changes of cold water, agitating the beans with your hands to release the skins. Loose skins should float to the surface where they can easily be discarded with each batch of cold water. When most of the skins are gone, proceed with the recipe.
  • Another way of skinning the chickpeas (which takes a lot longer) is to take each chickpea and gently squeeze to remove the skin, then discard the skins before processing. While this step is not completely necessary, it will ensure that your hummus turns out very smooth and creamy.
  • Reserve about 15-20 whole chickpeas for garnish. Outfit your food processor with a blade attachment. Place chickpeas, tahini paste, roasted garlic, lemon juice, 1 tbsp olive oil, salt, cumin, and cayenne pepper into the processor. Process the mixture until it becomes a smooth, creamy hummus.
  • Taste the mixture and add more salt, lemon juice, or garlic to taste. Process again to blend any additional ingredients. If the texture seems too thick, add lukewarm water and continue to process until desired consistency is reached.
  • Transfer hummus to a shallow bowl and create a well in the center with a spoon. Garnish with reserved chickpeas, a drizzle of olive oil, and a sprinkle of paprika and minced fresh parsley. Serve with pita, crackers, or fresh vegetables for dipping.

Mother's Day Collage with memories of Mother prints.



Cherished Babe limited edition print features mother with babe in arms in warm colors of peach, rust and very light orange and cream.

Oh, My Mother-in-law!

My mother-in-law waited ten years for the baby she had always dreamed of and expected to have.
From the time her son was born, the love and affection she showed him would have been enough for an army of children. He was everything to her. She cared for him, fought battles for him and despite rumors that “only children” grow up to be pretty spoiled, she managed to give him great guidance, a sense of caring and a love for others that carried him through life with strong values.
Even though there are lots of horror stories and mother-in-law jokes, I can tell you, I have always felt so lucky to have had the perfect mother-in-law. She loved her son unconditionally, and although you might find a mother with such a deep love, unwilling to welcomed anyone into their circle, she always said, “If my son loves her, I love her.” Melts my heart to remember how much she loved our family as it grew.

She was a special mother in so many ways. Growing up, Mike loved animals. He wanted a German Shepherd and always dreamt of having a horse. As it becameWatchful Eyes limited edition print by P Buckley Moss features a mother and her colt in shades of gray and highlights of black.

possible, they moved to a place where they could have both and of course it all became another job for mom. Mike got to do the fun part like playing with the dog and riding

the horse, but mom did the hard part; caring for them all. She would always say, “It’s okay, honey, as long as you enjoy them!” drawing out the words in her Alabama accent that never diminished one bit even though she lived in Ohio many more years than she lived in the South.


Mike loved being with his friends and they all played baseball. Practices, games and tournaments, his mom never missed being there to watch and it was taken for granted that anyone who needed a ride could be chauffeured by Mike’s mom. She always took as many kids as could be packed in the car; those were the days of no seat belts and the kids didn’t care if some had to sit on another friend’s lap. Mom was always there no matter what the boys needed or wanted to do.


Nursery Rhyme Print Limited Edition print by P Buckley Moss features the artist's view of the nursery rhyme of Living in a Shoe. Colors of tan, cream, light aqua.



Having friends over to spend the night usually started out as an overnight stay event but would more often turn into a weekend retreat because none of the kids ever wanted to go home. Why would they when mom did everything and was such a great cook?

I remember her stories about punishments at their house. The very few times Mike did something that didn’t please her, she really did make an attempt to punish him. However, she always ended up feeling so guilty about a few harsh words that she would apologize and ask him if he could ever forgive her.
So much for the “Time Out” chair. When it came to practicing his music, she let him count his bathroom breaks in his required practice time! She was always there to provide a soft landing for every situation.

Ribbons of Joy limited edition print by P Buckley Moss features three generations; grandmother, mother and child. Colors of pinks, lavender, rust and mauve.

As Mike and I started our family, his mom and grandmother couldn’t wait for a baby in the family and to see our first born.
One day after our son’s birth, she shared she couldn’t imagine loving anyone like she had loved her own son, but she guessed she must have enough love to go around because her grandson brought such a thrill it was like having Mike all over again. Bless her heart, the second grandson was certainly not left out. She really did have enough love for everyone.

Loving, caring, nurturing, sharing, teaching, guiding, supporting…that’s what mom’s do.

My Sweet Love limited edition print captures the love of motherhood, children and family shared by artist, P. Buckley Moss, through her art. Shades of cream, blue, peach, black.

I will always think of her fondly and wonder how one soul could have so much love to give away. Missing her every day and especially on Mother’s Day.
I hope you all have a wonderful day on Sunday. Pull out the picture box and take a trip back into your memories of Mom….and share them! Share them all so that a young generation can know that it is through our memories that we truly live on!

Memories of My Own Mother: I remember when I was growing up, a life that was much more scheduled and Saturday was the day to get everything done at home. My parents both worked. They went to work and came home at the same time every day, had weekends off even though they spent the entire weekend working at something. They went to the grocery store, together, every Friday night without fail and my mother did laundry and cleaned the house every Saturday while my dad worked in the garage fixing and repairing anything and everything for our house and every neighbor on the block. Nothing ever deviated very much.


Baking bread with mother.


I loved the Saturdays my mother baked bread…this was on top of her other chores. First thing before she started the cleaning chores, she put together the flour mixture for bread and covered it to let the dough rise. A few hours later she punched the dough down and I can still see her dividing the bread mixture into little balls and working each with the fingertip to make what would rise the second time as rolls. The way she twisted the dough made the tops of each little dough pillow as smooth as silk. I often wonder if all bakers used that same approach to preparing the rolls. The dough was left to rise again and at just the right time she put the pans, one by one into the oven to bake. She also made coffee cake with part of each batch of dough and sprinkled a sugar and cinnamon mixture on the top. What a wonderful smell that sent through the entire house and a great Sunday morning breakfast before church!

I remember short sleeve house dresses, washing dishes by hand, aprons…then, later each Saturday afternoon, our bathroom would become a beauty “parlor” and after I washed my hair, she put the wet strands into “pin curls” so they could dry overnight and be brushed out in the most relentless curly mass forA tribute to Mother on Mother's Day. Remembering mother.

Sunday school and church. It was a welcome change with the invention of “rollers”! We put our hair up on rollers instead of pin curls and the result was still a curly mess, just not quite as tight.

I loved my mother’s stories and hearing about her experiences as she grew up in a house with seven sisters and brothers. My mother was in high school when her youngest brother was born and my most favorite sibling story of all time was the one she would tell about how she and her oldest sister fought over who would push the “baby buggy” when taking their brother around the block for a ride.
One day they were fighting so much about who got to push the buggy, they didn’t notice when the baby slid out of his seat and landed on the ground some distance back. They couldn’t believe it when they stopped arguing long enough to check the baby and he was gone. Then it was a fight to make sure each swore not to tell their mom of their mishap. In later years, sitting around a table with the two sisters at lunch, they would have the biggest laugh over that incident…a memory that makes me smile even today.
Make memories with family, love hard and live life because when we’re too old to do anything else…we’ll have great memories to lean on.
Did your mom have favorite sayings? My mother had a lot of them, and we still repeat them at our family gatherings and they still make us all laugh. Sayings like, “Settle yourself”! or “There before the grace of God go I”. What do you remember about your mom and what were her favorite sayings that come to mind?

Chicken Soup Recipe

Chicken Soup
5 medium carrots, peeled
5 large stalks celery, trimmed
1 large yellow onion, peeled and halved
3 pounds chicken leg quarters (about 4 legs)
10 whole black peppercorns
2 sprigs rosemary
2 sprigs thyme
1 bay leaf
4 sprigs flat-leaf parsley
Kosher salt and freshly ground black pepper
4 ounces wide egg noodles (about 4 cups)
  1. Add 3 of the carrots, 3 stalks of the celery, half the onion, the chicken, peppercorns, rosemary, thyme and bay leaf to a large stock pot. Separate the parsley leaves from the stems and reserve the leaves. Add the stems to the pot. Cover with 3 quarts water. Bring to a boil, then reduce to a simmer. Cook until the broth is golden and the chicken is cooked through, 40 to 50 minutes.
  2. Use tongs to remove the chicken from the pot and put in a large bowl to cool. Strain the stock through a fine mesh sieve into a large bowl or other container. Discard the solids. Wipe out the stockpot and pour the strained broth back into the pot.
  3. Cut the remaining 2 carrots diagonally into 1/4-slices. Cut the remaining 2 celery stalks into 1/2-inch slices. Dice the remaining half of the onion. Add the cut vegetables to the stock and simmer until tender, 15 to 20 minutes.
  4. While the vegetables are cooking, bring a large pot of salted water to a boil over high heat. Cook the noodles until al dente, about 5 minutes, then drain and reserve.
  5. When the chicken is cool enough to handle, remove the skin and tear the meat into bite-size pieces. Discard the bones and skin. Add the meat back to the pot along with the cooked noodles. Chop the reserved parsley leaves and add to the pot. Season with 1 tablespoon plus 2 teaspoons salt and some pepper and bring to a simmer to reheat.

What Is a P. Buckley Moss Original?


Original Pieces of Art are One-of-a-Kind.Original Watercolor painting by P Buckley Moss of landscape featuring colors of light and darker aqua, earth tones, peach and pink for the sky and white spaces throughout. Bold Black Moss Trees.

An Original piece of art is the actual board or paper that the artist, P. Buckley Moss is painting on; premium art.
Original art works have texture and vibrancy because you can see the lines and strokes that her brush or pen is making.
Pat paints many original art pieces in various sizes and subjects. Canada Goose Gallery has the largest original art, in gallery collection, of original works outside of Pat’s personal portfolio so if there is something you would like to see, please reach out to me or Karen, our gallery assistant, for advice.
How Much Does Original Art Cost?
Although it’s a myth that “good art” has to be expensive, it’s true that an original piece may come with a higher price tag than a print. When you’re looking to invest in a piece, set your budget and we’ll advise and guide you through your purchase.
Keep in mind that Canada Goose Gallery has a lay-a-way option for purchases that may help you secure the artwork you love and want to add to your collection.

So, What is a Limited Art Print Edition?
A signed, numbered, limited art print edition is a copy of an original piece of art that is printed in a limited quantity. The original painting will always hold the highest value in any edition and will be the most sought after part
of the edition of art.

Most P. Buckley Moss art print editions are limited, in that Pat only releases a specific number of prints per edition. There are a few editions that are referred to as “Open” editions where the edition size is not set to a certain quantity and can be reproduced ongoing.

P. Buckley Moss Art Prints are now signed with a matrix of Pat’s original signature, where once Pat signed each and every print of every edition. [Note: Prints signed can be signed by Pat in person at our annual show, and on request from our Gallery] Prints prior to about mid 1994 were all signed by Pat’s own hand.
As each art print is signed, it is also assigned its own number and the quantity of the prints in any edition will always be noted on the print itself.
The number assigned to each print will normally be found along the lower edge. Look for something similar to 17/250.
The first number signifies the number assigned to that specific print while the second part of the number behind the “/” mark shows the number of prints in the edition. In this example 17 would
signify the print as being number 17 out of the edition size of 250 total prints.
