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.

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.
“The purpose of art is washing the dust of daily life off our souls.” 
Pablo Picasso
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).

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? 


Turquoise Treasure is a limited edition print by P Buckley Moss released in several different sizes on paper and canvas



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!

Welcoming Summer

The Shades of Blue…


The Color: Lakeshore Blue

Where to Use It: No matter where you live, nothing is as inviting as a cool body of water on a summer day.

Get the same feeling in your living areas by immersing the room in this cool shade.

For a dramatic effect, use the color on upholstered pieces, drapery panels, and accessories.

Home-decor-limited edition-prints-pbuckleymoss-art-blue


I think that no matter where you place a shade of blue,

it just has a way of bringing out the freshness of the space.

And I love how the blue softens the black too! 


Playful walls are most inviting!

Blue skies and blue seas–they make us long for summer

and the laughter that most often is included with it!


A gallery in a child’s room is an amazing way to teach and share

that is not  burdened with digital dings and pings.

Children today need to glance over at art and see that

not everything need have a thumbs up in appreciation.

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.




Having original and limited edition art in the home is vital to your well-being. Art is a key piece of furniture for many reasons and yet it is sometimes put on the back burner in comparison to other home décor items. This list is dedicated to the understanding of importance of art from perspectives of interior design, well-being, social atmosphere, creating a mood in the home, and more. One quote that stands out about the importance of original art is the following,

“You would never put fake books on your bookshelf, so why would you put fake art on your walls?”

For all of the following reasons, you can find the perfect work for your home or office on our online here.

1. Art Creates Mood

Brain scans have revealed that looking at works of art trigger a surge of dopamine into the same area of the brain that registers desire, pleasure, and romantic love ( Romantic, sublime landscapes provoke contemplation of nature and purity. Such works then create a mood of peace and are good for relaxation rooms such as the bedroom.

2. Art Adds Personal Character to the Home

Image: Our Strength and Beauty

We all love to express ourselves, be it through clothing, accessories, social media – the list goes on! Art in the home is a perfect way to express your artistic and aesthetic interests in a way different from most, since original and limited edition artwork is unique and handcrafted.

3. Art Makes Memories

Buying real art is an experience. For whatever reason, you were drawn to a specific piece (or multiple). You may have seen it at a show opening, had a nice trip to the ice cream shop beforehand. Whatever happened leading up to/during/after the purchase of a meaningful original work will be remembered every time you see it. This will not happen with a poster from Ikea.

4. Art Provides a Color Palette

When rooms have a lot of colors, or many shades of the same color, it can be hard to figure out how to tie everything together. A work of art is a beautiful, meaningful way to tie everything together and create a general focal point.

5. Art Makes a Room Feel Finished

Image: Reflections of the Soul (Large)

When walls are empty, a room does not necessarily look bad, but by no means does it look finished. Rooms with empty walls are functional rooms in a house. Rooms with art work are the most comfortable rooms in a home.

 6. Art Inspires and Fosters Creativity

This one is simple – in rooms with no art, artistic expression is lacking and therefore the need and want for creativity is not very prominent. On the opposite end of the spectrum, handcrafted art fosters creativity, expression, artistic inspiration. This is particularly important in homes with children as being surrounded by artwork will allow creative thinking. This idea is expanded on in reason 11.

7. Art Is a Conversation Starter

Image: Suncatcher (Medium)

As mentioned in reason 2, hanging art in your home is a way of expressing oneself. That being said, guests will always be curious about the choice of artwork, the story, have questions about the artist, etc. It is a way to show off your art collection while having passionate conversations with house guests no matter what room in the house you happen to be in!

8. Buying Art Supports Art Education

One of the most important things about buying original and limited edition artwork is that you are supporting art education in a world that has forgotten how important it is to our lives. Each time you have a look at a work in your home, it provides a feel-good emotion that filters in all areas of your life. Supporting art and art education is just another wonderful way of expressing our values.

9. Original and Limited Edition Art is an Investment

Building off of reason 8, not only does owning valuable artwork in the home allow you to support arts education, but when purchasing original or limited edition art from a known artist there is an investment value. These artworks can be passed down through family and friends, be shared with loved ones for many years all while increasing in worth. This is never something that will be achieved with a mass produced “Made in Taiwan” piece bought from the furniture store.

10. Art Creates a Livable Environment

Fashionably distressed brick walls, painted white, give the room a rough, rustic feel.   Image: Shimmering in the Depths

Art can make rooms that are not necessarily “home-y” to become comfortable working and living environments. A kitchen, for example, can transform from a place of hurried preparation to one of relaxation and productivity all the with addition of a valuable art piece. Attached is an article explaining how artwork in office spaces improves employee productivity.  Art in the office

11. Art Keeps the Brain Active

Art is very conceptual, artists use it as a medium to express personal thought, political or social issues, and to make us as viewers think. Some people do quizzes or crossword puzzles to keep their brain active, but another way to do so is to own original artwork in the home, to just sit, look, and think. For more benefits of art read this.

12. Art is Relaxing

In a busy, fast-paced world that demands speed and productivity, home should be a place of relaxation. Coming home from a busy dat at work to sit on your couch and stare at a TV or a blank wall is not as recharging or relaxing as enjoying an artwork purchased with the means to create a positive mood. Not to mention how we feel when caring for little children. Art offers a way for them to see the world and for us to be inspired.  Image: Alone in Thought (Large)  

13. Curating Your Own Art Gallery is Fun!

Last but certainly not least, curating a gallery is fun! Attending show openings, going to galleries, chatting with artists’ even, it is a fun experience! After a while you will start to notice a theme, in subject matter, color, concept, etc. Playing with moods, composition, placement in the home, of all these reasons why to have art in the home, let’s not forget the fact that it is simply something fun to do. So go ahead, fill your life (and home with art!)
