We just received a note from the family that purchased Denny Haskew's contribution to Santa Fe's Trail of Painted Ponies- "The Stone Pony". We're happy it's still being loved and admired.
Originally placed at the family's home in Houston, Tx, "Trigger" they shared a photo with a young rider about 15-years ago; and now, photographed headed to it's new home and placed on Willie Nelson's 500 acre "Luck Ranch" in Spicewood, TX where the family now lives. Trigger overlooks panoramic views of Hill Country and greets anyone who drives up the hill, including Willie, wife Annie, and their 70+ rescued horses at Luck Ranch.
Trigger the Stone Pony joins another Trigger at Luck Ranch, Willie's 50+ year old guitar… named after Roy Rogers' horse. Because Roy said he never left home without Trigger… Willie never leaves home without his guitar, so he decided years ago to affectionately name his guitar “Trigger”.
“THE STONE PONY: All of life combines in this wonder called the Universe… This ’stone pony’ is a small attempt to show that a piece of stone and a horse are both living energies of this universal home.” -Denny Haskew

June has been full of coordinating the move out of Columbine Gallery and the Sculpture Garden, we're happy to share that JK Designs' made the move to home offices and we are excited about our renewed focus on our large-scale projects with the National Sculptors' Guild members artwork. So far, our dog's are the happiest about the move.
Alyson's office is already in use and Jujube is super happy with her new bed in the office.
We were all pleasantly pleased to see the Executive Desk Set fit into John's space. We'll update with a new pic of all the office accoutrements. It sets the tone for some great site designs and public art master planning to take place.
We hope you are gathering with your favorite people, honoring traditions and/or celebrating in your own way. Regardless of the path you're on, there are so many reasons to commemorate this week. Enjoy.
We'll be closed until next Wednesday to be with our families. You can still shop online, so grab a hot cocoa and find your next artwork to warm your space.
Merry Solstice, Merry Christmas, Happy Hanukkah, Happy Kwanzaa!
It's Fall in Colorado and the temps are dropping so John's been bringing the final blooms inside. The flowers go so well with the artwork. We hope you are cozy at home with your collection of art and florals. #MumsTheWord

We're so pleased that people are finding homes for our artwork, we've had a record number of sales for winter which is usually pretty slow for us.
We rarely have historic works, but a collector brought this landscape to us to sell and the Alexis Compera, circa 1906, just found a new wall to hang on. We love art appreciators!
Thanks for making art a priority in your lives.

Also pictured are sculptures by Leo E. Osborne and Don Rambadt, and a small work by Tal Walton.

This is a fun way to collect art! If you want to send some puzzles for us to solve, we'd love to play along and connect you with art too!

One of our patrons sent us these beautiful images from their sculpture garden. Did you know John frequently designs floral elements in our placements? Gardening is one of his passions. And landscaping can be just as expressive as the art showcased in it.
These cactus in Boerne, Texas are displaying their amazing colors, and it is breath taking.
Share the simple beauty that is surrounding you these days, sometimes it's art, sometimes it's nature's sculptures.
Hopefully you have a little of each enhancing your space.

Gary Miller at work in the studio of the home he built with his wife Tammie in the mountains west of Fort Collins, Colorado. Gary has documented this painting from its beginning. It is about 80% complete at the point shown here.... when he sends all the photos we will post them here.
In the meantime, you can preorder this painting here. It will ship directly from the studio once dry.
What happens when you have an engineer/artist dad (Joe Norman), a bright young girl and a 3D printer to make prototypes during a stay-in-place order? Construct a icosahedron fort! What an awesome homeschool project!!
We've got our eyes on Abby, she's going places already. Also, I want a play day in that fort!
From Joe: "Attached are some photos of me and Abby learning about icosahedrons and building her new fort in the backyard, after prototyping it with 3D printed sockets we designed that fit Q-tips as structural members. We then used 2x4's and door hinges to make the full size version."
In geometry, an icosahedron is a polyhedron with 20 faces. The name comes from Ancient Greek εἴκοσι, meaning 'twenty', and ἕδρα, meaning 'seat'. There are infinitely many non-similar shapes of icosahedra, some of them being more symmetrical than others.
