Who Is American Artist, P Buckley Moss

The Artist P. Buckley Moss has a unique perspective of the world.  One of the things most fascinating about her (and there are many things) is her remarkable memory for details. If you ask her what inspires her to paint she will tell you that the world is rich with details. I have been to her studios through out the years and have seen first hand the sketches on paper, tissues, napkins, envelopes….tiny pieces of visual notes to be expanded upon when she finds herself alone with only brush and canvas.

On my first visit to one of Pat’s painting studios, I was in aw of just how much artwork I saw there. There was artwork everywhere! I saw stacks of paintings piled high on her tables and cabinets in no particular order, several paintings at the ready on her drawing table and I gasped when I saw how many were just laying on the floor. The day I visited, she even had a large painting under a see-through mat on the floor. I was considering each drawing or watercolor a treasured piece of artwork to be protected while Pat seemed to have to spread them all out to get a feel for what would inspire her next. Propped against the windows were paintings in upright position in different stages of completion; large pieces and small pieces positioned so she could glance their way and envision how to finish what she had started.  When asked, “Which piece do you work on next?”, she answered, “I rarely know when I walk in my studio each morning what I will work on. I look around me at all the unfinished paintings and I know when one calls me, that will be the painting I work on that day”.

Life Lessons From Geese

Positive Featured Inspirational Story – June 2005

Lessons from Geese

‘Individual empowerment results from quality honking’

Lessons from Geese provides a perfect example of the importance of team work and how it can have a profound and powerful effect on any form of personal or business endeavour. When we use these five principles in our personal and business life it will help us to foster and encourage a level of passion and energy in ourselves, as well as those who are our friends, associates or team members.

It is essential to remember that teamwork happens inside and outside of business life when it is continually nurtured and encouraged.

 

Lesson 1 – The Importance of Achieving Goals

As each goose flaps its wings it creates an UPLIFT for the birds that follow. By flying in a ‘V’ formation the whole flock adds 71 percent extra to the flying range.

Outcome

When we have a sense of community and focus, we create trust and can help each other to achieve our goals.

 

 

 

Lesson 2 – The Importance of Team Work

When a goose falls out of formation it suddenly feels the drag and resistance of flying alone. It quickly moves back to take advantage of the lifting power of the birds in front.

Outcome

If we had as much sense as geese we would stay in formation with those headed where we want to go. We are willing to accept their help and give our help to others.

 

 

Lesson 3 – The Importance of Sharing

When a goose tires of flying up front it drops back into formation and another goose flies to the point position.

Outcome

It pays to take turns doing the hard tasks. We should respect and protect each other’s unique arrangement of skills, capabilities, talents and resources.

 

 

Lesson 4 – The Importance of Empathy and Understanding

   When a goose gets sick, two geese drop out of formation and follow it down to the ground to help and protect it.

Outcome

If we have as much sense as geese we will stand by each other in difficult times, as well as when we are strong.

 

 

Lesson 5 – The Importance of Encouragement

Geese flying in formation ‘HONK’ to encourage those up front to keep up with their speed.

Outcome

We need to make sure our honking is encouraging. In groups and teams where there is encouragement, production is much greater. ‘Individual empowerment results from quality honking’
