Reflections of Places We Love

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
Ingredients
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
Instructions
  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.
