Three of my newest paintings are matted, framed, and ready to hang in Columbine Gallery, in Loveland, Colorado.  

Bouquet with Roses & Grapes, 20s24 watercolor by Pat Howard

Wading Egret in the Arno River, 20 x 28 watercolor by Pat Howard

Rainy Day at the Piazza San Michelle (Lucca, Italia), 20 x 26, watercolor by Pat Howard

I delivered them to the gallery last week, in time for their upcoming show, that I am honored to be a part of, on August 7-9 . . . 

Columbine Gallery will be partnering with the Artist Ambassadors Against Poaching for "A Weekend for Elephants", in conjunction with their Annual Columbine Gallery/National Sculptors Guild Show.

Artist Ambassadors Against Poaching are nine highly acclaimed international artists working to bring awareness to the ongoing poaching crisis in Africa. These nine artists have pledged themselves to helping AWT’s efforts in saving the African Elephant through their art and donations, speaking engagements, museum exhibitions and gallery sales. They work to spread the word about the harm of poaching and to raise funds for African Wildlife Trust. Proceeds from the sale of their artwork will go to benefit the Ivory Orphans’ Sanctuary, Tanzania’s first official refuge for elephant calves orphaned due to poaching.

I'm not part of this group, but I admire what they're doing and look forward to being part of this weekend.  I've also chosen one of my pieces at the gallery that, if sold, 10% of the proceeds (5% from the artist and 5% from the Gallery) will be donated to The Ivory Orphans Sanctuary.
