Art, Interiors

7 Colorado Artists to Watch (and buy from!)

We are going to start tearing up our dense jungle of a backyard this week and I feel excited but nervous.  Excited that the long local nightmare (our yard) is over and nervous because maybe I am just a terrible gardener and once we get things looking nice, it will revert back to a jungle within a year. It’s a yard that was put together a long time ago by an extreme hobbyist whom I define as someone who just wants to work in their garden in their free time.  Throw in a few owners that didn’t have that lust for work and then us and you have a giant mess.  We could potentially find the Ark of the Covenant in our backyard or a shortcut to Vail.  I’ll let you know.

I love art and I thought it would be fun to highlight a few local painters on the blog this week!  One easy way to elevate your interior is to decorate it with great art.  There are many talented artists out here in Colorado and here are a few that caught my eye.
