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.

Spirit of Freedom

Spirit of Freedom is a giclee limited edition print by P Buckley Moss printed on paper. Colorful pastel background of turquoise lemon yellows and corals. Stately horse ih shades of tans and browns.


Spirit of Freedom is a large Giclee print that has garnered extreme interest and popularity with collectors especially those with the wall space to hang this exceptional image. Taken from an original watercolor that once hung in the permanent collection of the P Buckley Moss Museum, the Giclee reproduction process is nearly a perfect recreation of the original. The giclee is a digital process that is produced by a large printer that “spits or sprays” the ink onto the archival paper or canvas recreating both color and texture of the original unlike any other printing process.

Moss’ horses are almost always created with flowing lines which is a characteristic of her style and this work is no exception. The flowing main and flaring nostrils indicate the pronounced power of the horse as well as the symbolism of freedom and sensuality. Early in her career during a show, a person asked her why she didn’t paint nudes and she pointed to one of her horses and said, “Look at that beautiful horse,” to which the gentleman replied, “Touche!”

The soft pastel colors in the background, the indication of landscape in the very minimalist way speak to Pat’s artistic training as a professional artist and lends to a visual style like no other. Those who are not aware of this artist often recognize either her horses or her geese even if they don’t know who she is!

1440 Extra Minutes?

With so much “time” on our hands one would think we could accomplish the impossible, right?
How do we spend our time? So many hours in our day spent worrying or busy with “busy” work. You know how that goes, we get up with the best intentions and then before we know it the day is over, the sundown, and it times to go to bed. Let’s think about time this week and make it special.
With a whole extra day, I challenge you to think about the things you enjoy in life. For me, it’s reading. A good book, a comfortable chair, and off I go to the far places of adventure and travel, or perhaps it is history that has caught my attention this week or poems. I rarely take the time and this week I shall reconsider how I spend every minute, of every day.
When I look at this image I am reminded of my grandchildren. Oh, they are too old for me to snuggle up and read a favorite story, but I am comforted in knowing that occasionally they too will curl up and read something! Well, as I am reminded every now and then, they do read, you know, things on their phones, articles, stories, blogs, even an occasional magazine.

What is it for you?  What will you do with your extra Leap Year minutes this week? Think about it and make it the gift it is intended to be….the gift of time!Let Art Inspire for Leap Year with the P Buckley Moss frog collection.

Frog Magic

Frogs are magical, time-traveling creatures. As they leap around us they travel through time reminding us to move toward what we desire in life. The symbolism of the frog appears in many traditions around the globe. It is generally associated with a transition which is why we see frogs in Leap years.

The frog is symbolic of:

  • Cleansing
  • Renewal, rebirth
  • Fertility, abundance
  • Transformation, metamorphosis
  • Life mysteries and ancient wisdom

Celebrate a 223rd Birthday with Limited Edition History Cards

History Matters

The History of Waynesville. One of the most fun projects I worked on last year was the collection of old photographs for the birthday of Waynesville. I went to the library and worked with the historian and to the Museum at the Friends Home and worked with several docents. Looked at pages and pages of images of this small town that blossomed through time, living moments of history.
Waynesville History Cards featuring the many historic buildings in Waynesville Ohio
We made the first series of cards and they were so well received by our visitors to town during our 222 Birthday Bash in 2019. Then we found so many new images!
Selling these cards is a labor of love! The total price is donated to the Waynesville Merchants Association so that we can continue to provide events that are fun for everyone. Come and check them out!

A Fun Visitor

Village of Waynesville, Ohio. Main street with retail shops and restaurants along the street.

On any day in Waynesville, there are visitors that come in the gallery with smiles for the art and curiosity about the treasures inside such a colorful place. One day last week I had a most unusual and delightful visitor who brightened my day and now I hope will brighten yours.

While working at the back of the gallery a young man and his mother walked in and started looking intently at the artwork.  I greeted them and struck up a conversation about the pieces they were looking at together. I was curious about their day in Waynesville and asked how the visit was so far, thinking the boy would come back with a negative response since a day walking around was not anything like video games with friends. To my surprise, his face lit up when I asked about their visit and he said, “This is a great place! I love coming here!” 

Pleasantly surprised, I asked what he liked most about Waynesville. He responded that he loved art, but that he was also excited to visit all the antique stores. Hmmm, I thought.  Here is a ten-year-old boy who loves art and antiques?! 

So, young man,” I said in surprise.  “What do you love about antique stores?”

Turquoise Treasure is a large turquoise cat on canvasHe thought for a moment and began to tell me how much he loved seeing things from so many years ago.  He loved looking at all the tools, toys, and treasures of an antique store and imagining how they were used and who may have used them.

Well,” I said with a big smile. “It is a rare person indeed who truly appreciates the value of a good antique!” 


Before I could continue, he and his mom started telling me how much they liked so many of the P Buckley Moss prints and originals in the gallery.  They were astounded at the different styles and subjects but as I suspected, the print they were the most excited about was Turquoise Treasure which features a standing cat, with such a playful attitude that happened to be painted turquoise.  But then it wouldn’t be a cat if it didn’t have an attitude, right?

I too am a huge fan of our Turquoise Cat.  It is one print almost everyone comments on when they peruse our gallery.  And I just love that old art lovers and younger new ones just love how this wonderfully simple and colorful piece can make you smile, even on the gloomiest of winters days!

They walked around and asked questions about certain pieces that caught their eye.  Before we knew it, they were mindful of the time and wanted to get outside to continue their planned day in town.  Before they left, I asked if he was “On the Hunt” for any antiques in particular and he looks up at me with a big smile and said, “Of course! I collect Pez dispensers.” The gleam in his eye brought a smile to my face and we talked about his Pez collection, although he was quick to point out that it was not technically a real collection since he only had about 100 of these candy dispensers. 

OK, only 100?!  I leaned in closer and told him that anytime you have 100 of any one category of items…it would definitely have to be considered a collection!  He smiled and looked up at his mom with pride. But now he had me quite curious.


I asked him more about the tiny candy dispensers and he told me that he would expect to pay around $15 to $25 for one of the old Pez dispensers if he was lucky enough to spot one in any of our antique malls. “The really early ones are worth thousands of dollars,” he told me. Who knew? 

Without blinking an eye he said, “My 1979, Tweety Bird!”  

Tweety Bird Pez Dispenser


So,” I continued. “What is your absolute favorite Pez dispenser from your collection at home?”

Without blinking an eye he said, “My 1979, Tweety Bird!”  

Of course, it was!  


He made sure to also tell me how much he enjoyed the artwork of P. Buckley Moss.  He and his mom promised to come back when they had a bit more time to learn more about her and all the beautiful artwork.  They both agreed that coming into the gallery was a delightful surprise and a reason they would return again. I made him promise to return with his 1979 Tweety so I could see what I missed from back in the day and made a mental note to keep an eye out for “Pez” dispensers when I get around to cleaning my basement.

As they headed out the door, I stopped and looked around the gallery.  Through the eyes of a ten-year-old, I was seeing the fun and magic that art brings into our everyday life.  I glanced at the turquoise cat and gave her a wink. There is something for everyone!  

He made my day and I was so very happy they would come to Waynesville to walk around and just enjoy new experiences as a family.  That is what life is all about–exploring, learning, and setting out on a “hunt!”

Art can be so fun!

Kentucky Derby Red Brings Out the Best in P Buckley Moss Art



It’s time to start planning your Run For The Roses gathering! I just love that expression and I love the Kentucky Derby.  All the hats and fancy dresses, tiny finger sandwiches, and of course, the excitement of the race!  I haven’t been, but it makes me happy to think of all the fun and excitement of being around horses.  If I had to pick a favorite that Pat Moss paints I would have to say that her horses are some of the most lovely and inspiring images to grace a wall.


Les Chevaux: Rare P Buckley Moss Art Print

“Les Chevaux”


Les Chevaux is a rare/sold out, limited edition print that was issued in 1984 depicting five horses in a typical Moss landscape.  Translated from the French, Les Chevaux, literally means “The Horses.”  Horses have been the partners of mankind since the earliest of times, even before spoken language as evidenced by the paintings in caves at Chauvet and also those at Lascaux.  The paintings at Chauvin-Pont-d’Arcy Cave in the Ardèche in the southern part of France are around 30,000 years old and those at Lascaux (France) are approximately 16,000 years old.

The five horses are painted with a wonderful technique that lends itself to art transparency.  The background is laid down first and the horses are then painted on the surface.  This transparency indicates that the horses have a connection to the earth and a spiritual presence and power in a visual symbolic way.  This is not a realistic representation of the horse, but rather a very stylized, modernist version.  The horses are composed from fluid line work and liquid color, both characteristics of Moss’ imagery.

The landscape behind the horses play an equally important part in the image as it is created from Moss’ classic Z-shaped brushstrokes that are used to create multiple horizon lines.  The use of the “Grand-Z” as it is known, is used to make it difficult to tell where earth and sky separate, and at points become one, creating a harmony within the landscape.

Original Art – P Buckley Moss Horse Watercolor Paintings


The horse is a symbolic image that has been incorporated in the works of many artists throughout the history of art. Contemporary artists like P. Buckley Moss are no exception. Moss has long included the image of the horse as part of her visual repertoire and iconography.


In art the horse represents nobility, grace and strength. In ancient times, it was often a symbol for the spoils of war and it was viewed as a mystical or spiritual being. An entire month of the Chinese Zodiac is dedicated to the horse with characteristics of chivalry, practicality, love, devotion and stability. The Celtic people saw the horse as a symbol of fertility, victory, long life and wealth. The Romans attributed the qualities of power and honor to the horse.

Moss’ horses represent a spirit of freedom characterized by flaring nostrils and flowing manes. Most of her horses are painted as individuals in a full frontal position looking eye to eye at the observer.



The horse depicted is painted in a modernist style and not the realistic depictions that many assume is the style-mark of art. This image is characterized by Moss’ line work producing a very organic looking image.  The lines appear as branches working throughout the image.  The golden color represents spiritual wealth and abundance.

Gentle Soul: P Buckley Moss Limited Edition Art Print

Describes both the artist and her work

“Gentle Soul”



Gentle Soul is a portrait of one of Pat’s golden-hued horses looking quite quizzically at the observer, becoming the human presence in the image. The horse in Pat’s art is an important and easily recognizable form of iconography. Iconography is generally defined as the “subject” of the work of art. In the history of art the horse has been used as a symbol for thousands of years.  The horse is known to symbolize human sensuality, nobility, strength, and grace. For Moss, the horse specifically symbolizes a freedom of spirit characterized by the long flowing mane and flaring nostrils.

It is not only the horse that is part of Moss symbolism, the blue reflecting pond behind the horse is also symbolic representing the depth of the human soul. The mountain that rises up in the landscape creates depth and the trees lining the horizon are compositional elements used to break up the planes of space that appear throughout the image.  Moss’ style, known as the Valley Style, often contains these images of landscapes.  The style was named for the Shenandoah Valley in Virginia where Moss raised her family and became the well-known artist she is today.
