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.

We’ve represented Tal Walton since the mid-90’s and we still get pieces in the gallery that take our breath away. Tal has provided us a virtual studio visit for a look at his process. We hope you enjoy learning a bit more about this great artist.
“My work is about Americana, it’s about our roots. When life was a little slower, a little more simple. ...and l hope (my work) inspires you to slow down, look back, and find joy in things from your past.” -Tal Walton

An artful placement is just what we need these days. Thanks Platte River Power Authority!
We will post photos of Alyson Kinkade’s painting installed along with the others by Kim English that Anderson Mason Dale Architects had commissioned for this placement as soon as we have them.
Kinkade stated; "I delivered the commissioned paintings to Platte River Power Authority today. (wearing mask and gloves!) I’m thrilled to be part of their permanent collection in their beautiful new building. Special thanks to Anderson Mason Dale Architects for the selection and a gorgeous space for my art to hang. And thanks Columbine Gallery for the sale.
I love this painting, "Vast, Front Range Sunset Symphony" and I love that it will be in a space that embraces environmental stewardship; keeping the landscapes that inspire my art around."

Columbine's Jean Perry is featured in the current Art of the West magazine. We just got our copies and it's stunning. Her beautiful landscapes lift off the pages, and the written word provides more depth to the imagery she creates.
"I think my years of abstract design have helped me to organize a good landscape."
We urge you to pick up a magazine to see the full article. And stop by the gallery to see her work in person.
08/02/2018 UPDATE: We just learned that Juan de la Cruz passed away last night. We are turning our already planned feature exhibit of his artwork into a Tribute to Juan de la Cruz Machicado and his contributions as an artist. His gentle spirit will live on through his paintings. Any unsold paintings will be returned to Peru after the show at the family's request. We feel this may be the last chance to see his work exhibited in the US and hope you'll take advantage to view it here this August, and add a piece of this cherished artist to your collection. #CelebratingMachicado

Nearly a dozen new paintings have arrived from Tal Walton, transforming Columbine's front room. The pieces are incredibly strong, even the most subtle images. A most notable distinction from past work is the diverse and bold palettes Tal is currently exploring, although his voice is clearly still present.

check out our update on this story "Vito's art hits the streets and the airwaves"
One of our favorite artists, (& quite frankly an all-time favorite human being), Teresa Vito, has been hard at work painting a mural on-site. She completed the "Pueblo Chile" mural yesterday, and it could not be cooler to see a Vito painting this large. We're sharing some of her images of the progression, see it in person at 1st and Grand in Pueblo, CO.
Teresa Vito's intent was to maintain a 1930's sign painting aesthetic. She nailed it. The Pueblo Chile logo painting was part of the group's branding campaign made possible largely due to a United States Department of Agriculture Specialty Crops Block Grant from the Colorado Department of Agriculture. The grant was obtained by Pueblo County’s Economic Development and GIS Department. Chris Markuson, Pueblo County’s Director of Economic Development & GIS helped make the mural placement possible.
"...the logo image was taken from an oil painting that was specifically commissioned by the Pueblo Chile Growers Association for the purpose of a brand logo. The highly successful painting was done by Teresa Vito, who lives in Pueblo. This painting portrays actual chile farms on the St. Charles Mesa. The artist’s excellent paintings often reflect scenes of Pueblo." --learn more about Teresa's logo painting that inspired this mural in the September 5, 2015 feature by Ryan Severance in the Pueblo Chieftain.
The Pueblo Chile mural is now featured on the 1860's building at 1st (Central City Drive) and Grand which houses the Pueblo Art Alliance. Vito left a bit of history, keeping the character Fred (from Fred's Wallpaper and Paint Supply) but did add a bit of paint to his brush to tie him into the new mural.
Teresa did not paint this mural in a typical manner, rather she painted as she would work on her traditional oil on linen pieces. Only the scale was magnified. Her next largest painting has measured just 48-in x 60-in comparison to this 12-ft x 30-ft mural. She did enlist help from Greg Zimmerman and Mike Strescino. The trio painted the mural in just 9 days.
Vito is thrilled to be part of the place she calls home. Pueblo, after-all, is no stranger to murals; home of the largest mural in the world, according to the Guinness World Records, located on a levee along the Arkansas river. She is proud to leave her mark on this artful city. If you wish to commission Teresa to paint in your town, just contact us! As always, you may view and purchase her paintings using Columbine Gallery's online store or visit the gallery and sculpture garden in Loveland, Colorado.
The National Sculptors' Guild sculpture garden at Columbine Gallery is starting to emerge from the snow cover with colorful blossoms.
