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.

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.

The Lessons of Art and Faith

Christianity In Art


Art brings to life something that cannot be expressed with mere words. The visual experience of the forms and colors expressed by an artist can evoke emotions felt deeply in ones soul. For Christians around the world, and throughout time, art is a moment of reflection on our faith. The deep and profound expression of our inner voice is spoken as we look upon an artist’s vision of their deepest beliefs.


Art is so much more than paint on canvas or figures chipped from stone. Men and women around the world have stared at statues and paintings for centuries in rapture. It is not uncommon for us to be moved to tears by the inclusive colors and textures. Art somehow finds a way to enter into the purest part of our faith. And surprisingly, this was part of the original Christian thinkers intention.
In the time of Christ and the early Church, art gave a voice to a world where few people could read and write. Its colors and subjects were a voice to the masses of people in communities who struggled to understand their purpose. Art gave them a roadmap to their faith!
Christian art is also very much about the artist. For P. Buckley Moss, her faith is at the core of who she is as a person, a mother, an artist. As Easter approaches this week, during this shelter-in-place reality that we are all a part of, art can bring to us the community we all crave right now. To look upon the crucifiction and celebrate the sacrifice made for us is something somber and refreshing.

My All is a limited edition print by P Buckley Moss featuring Christ on the cross. Colors are turquoise with a splash of gold and white blank spaces.

This week let us all celebrate our faith. Take a moment to reflect upon our beliefs and embrace the beauty that only art can share with us in such a deeply personal part of our lives.
And share your reflections with others, with me. Just as Pat painted her vision with deep, heavy strokes of color, so should we share the beauty and blessings that come from a life of deep faith.
Be safe everyone. Reach out to as many people as you can to check on them and give them a moment of community. We are all in this together–what better lesson can Easter week give us?
The Value of Community
“There is no power for change greater than a community discovering what it cares about.” – Margaret J. Wheatley

Sharing Work and Fellowship limited edition print is a barn raising theme with colors of cream, soft turquoise and earth colors.


In a time when our community is “virtual” we are collectively appreciating all the things that our neighbors contribute to our lives. Pat Moss spent many years of her artistic life exploring the communities in and around the Shenandoah Valley. She loved the communities that Quakers built and often spent time sketching and painting their simpler way of life. What does community mean to you? Are you missing the moments shared? We should all take this solitude and explore the meaning of community. I have a feeling it will be far more valuable!

History as a Lesson in Hope

Headlines from The Columbus Dispatch in 1918
from October 11 on the left to November 8 on the right.
Ohio’s major cities reacted to these closure orders at varying paces. Cincinnati had already closed most public gathering places on October 5, Dayton closed with the October 8th order, Columbus and Cleveland started to fall in line and got everything closed by the 14th, Toledo received the state order a few days late, but started closures once they got word.
No one was happy about the closures. Cincinnati theatres convinced the city to stay open through Sunday, October 6th so that their current shows could finish their run. Columbus’s Health Officer, Dr. Louis Kahn closed theatres just before the Governor’s suggestions were issued. However, the Columbus Chamber of Commerce asked that a previously planned concert at Memorial Hall be allowed to go on, because only a higher class of person would attend (and assumedly, they would not spread disease). In Cleveland, police arrested various people breaking public gathering laws, including a group of Jewish men holding religious services, a candy shop owner and their patrons, and a gambling game (the gamblers insisted that they were not gambling, but the police insisted that was not why they were being arrested).
