LIFESTYLE LETTER

FEBRUARY 2021 PUBLISHER

Stacey Smith | stacey.smith@lifestylepubs.com EDITOR

Letter from the Editor ACCORDING TO WEBSTER’S DICTIONARY, ART IS DEFINED AS THE CONSCIOUS USE OF SKILL AND CREATIVE IMAGINATION ESPECIALLY IN THE PRODUCTION OF AESTHETIC OBJECTS. Artistic expression has always been something that I am drawn to, whether it is through appreciating physical works of art or expressing it through music, dance or design. Art is so subjective and the individuality of that expression is endless. My father-in-law is an artist, and his ability to capture an emotion or the personality

of his subject in his paintings captivates me. (My photo this month is painted by him as well as my cover photo art.) Expressing himself in this way brings him so much joy, and his artwork that we own is a timeless treasure. While artistic expression is most obviously seen in physical works of art, all of us have various forms of creativity that is unique to each of us. Whether it is expressed through traditional artistic forms or through vocations such as the creative genius of an entrepreneur creating a unique business or a chef dreaming up a new recipe, these unique creative contributions is what makes our community so special. We wanted to share a few local makers and artisans with you this month that each

ARTIST’S PALETTE

RIO LOBO STUDIOS

FOR THE LOVE OF ART PHOTOGRAPHY PAUL VERSLUIS AND JANIE JONES

Leawood Lifestyle | February 2021


DENNIS BROOCKERD OF RIO LOBO STUDIOS HAS ALWAYS LOVED ART. He enjoys looking at art, he enjoys learning about art, and most of all he loves creating art. “There is something special about having an idea, developing a pleasing design, and having the craftsmanship to complete a work that others like,” he says. Dennis is an award-winning woodcarver of more than 45 years. In 2012 he shifted gears to pursue two-dimensional art. He works on detailed drawings in graphite and colored pencil. He is also accomplished with watercolors and oils. Over time he realized that acrylic painting is his preferred medium. Most of his artwork uses vibrant, exaggerated color with hard edges. Some have described it as pop art. “I enjoy using colors that complement each other so that the eye mixes them. Acrylic dries quickly, making it difficult to blend easily, but I like to work on one picture at a time, so acrylic works best for me.” Dennis likes painting old cars because they have more character than the cookie cutter cars of today. He grew up with cowboys and Indians as his heroes and that experience comes out in his work. He also enjoys painting pets, cows, horses and other farm animals. “I believe everybody has certain talents. Some have a talent for music, others are good at gardening. God loaned me an artistic ability. That said, to be good at anything you have to put in the work. I paint at least 12 hours a week. Practice, practice, practice,”Dennis says. When asked about what he considers his favorite piece of art he replies, “I don’t know because I haven’t made it yet.” Dennis is the president of Senior Arts Council here in Kansas City. To see more of his work, visit his website at Riolobostudio.com or contact him at dmbroockerd@att.net for custom paintings or carvings. CONTINUED >

He says, “You get them all in one package!” Their business is strictly by appointment only, which they have been doing even before the pandemic.

VALENTINES DAY IN (CONTINUED)

ROMANTIC DINNER FOR 2: THE ADULT TABLE For this look, we decided to set the table in a non-traditional casual setting—the coffee table in the living room. Layer pillows and cozy blankets on the ground for comfortable seating. We used two layers of fabric for the runner, and added a handmade floral arrangement as the centerpiece. To achieve this look, use a two-layer serving tray and layer flowers and stems to adorn the tray. Add grapes or berries to give a fuller and textured look. For a romantic ambiance, add candle sticks, a bottle of wine and Billie Holiday playing in the background. For a no-hassle dinner, order out and serve your favorite takeout in the comfort of your own home. Or if you like to cook together, Chef Jasper provided a go-to pasta recipe (see page 26) perfect for a Valentines Day in. Add a hint of decadent chocolate from Panache. Their Valentine’s collection, Unforgettable, is inspired by chef-created classic desserts that evoke memories of era’s past: Strawberries Romanoff Truffle, Italian Cherry Truffle, Bananas Foster Truffle, and Dark Chocolate Mousse Truffle. “Every day, we handcraft extraordinary chocolates for people to enjoy and gift. Our award-winning luxury creations are made with real ingredients, top Kansas City wine and spirits brands, and creative flavors, all exquisitely presented.” —Julie House, Panache Chocolatier

CAPELLI D’ANGELO ALLA NANNI INGREDIENTS + 8 oz. Barilla Capellini + 2 tsp. salted butter + 4 oz. prosciutto ham + 4 mushrooms, sliced thin + 12 oz. Jasper’s Marinara Sauce + 4 oz. heavy cream + 1/4 tsp. red pepper flakes + 4 oz. Romano cheese METHOD 1. Cook pasta al dente according to package directions. 2. Melt 2 tsp. butter in a saute pan over medium high heat. Add prosciutto and let it crisp, then add sliced mushrooms. Saute for 2 minutes. 3. Stir in marinara sauce and cream, red pepper flakes, peas and Romano cheese. Bring to a light boil. Add cooked pasta and toss. Serve immediately. Jasper’s notes: Be careful to cook the pasta al dente as it can become soggy very quickly and soak up all of the sauce. My father loved canned peas and said they had more flavor than regular peas. Also, I add a little more red pepper because I like this dish to have a bit of spice. “Capelli d’Angelo alla Nanni is a recipe my father, Jasper Sr., created and today is Jasper’s most-requested pasta dish. In the late 1960s, he ate this pasta in a restaurant in Italy and became intrigued with it, returning to the trattoria three nights in a row, trying to decipher the ingredients. While on the surface the recipe appears simple, believe me, it took many hours for my father to perfect this dish. When he returned home, he and my mother experimented with Jasper’s chefs until he said it was perfect. Customers requested the recipe for over 50 years, but my father would never give it out. It wasn’t until several years ago that we decided to share this delicious pasta with our guests, in my father’s honor.” — Chef Jasper Mirabile Jr., chefowner, Jasper’s Restaurant CREDITS: Sweet treats: Smallcakes Shawnee 913-808-5300 Flowers: Trader Joes Chocolate: Panache Chocolatier, Park Place in Leawood Food: Jaspers Restaurant JaspersKC.com Styled by: Amani Skalacki 26
