New Color Block Art

    We are so pleased to introduce new art for purchase in our Aptos Village gallery location. One of our current exhibits is a series of abstract designs in soft colors. We call them Color Blocks. They are matted and framed with a minimal look. These designs are wonderful as accent pieces. As a group of four they will make a beautiful statement on a featured living room wall.. as in over a sofa or fireplace.

Anvil Frames and Cowboy Art



Anvil… I just love the possibilities this frame style offers. It fuses faux patinas of textured metal with designs made from additional finishes looking like rivets and soft embedded wire. Sometimes the finishes contain what looks like flecks of rust. Sometimes one sees a leftover layer of copper or a faded metallic silver. These frames are slightly urban, slightly organic and always flexible when  speaking to the art.


When one of our favorite clients came by with a limited edition print by artist Peter McIntyre we knew we would find a great framing solution with our anvil collection.

We opted for simplicity. We wanted the frame to enhance the rugged feeling of the art and blend into the surroundings of the home where it would hang.
