What People Are Saying -

"Hi Mark, I love Michael's painting! It is colorful & yet so calming. Very nice in all kinds of lighting (playing with the dimmer switch). Packaged nicely. I'm happy with the purchase."  Scott, Scottsdale

""It's been a hoot and I never cease to marvel at what you created. We gave "Autumn Shimmer" as a gift to each other for birthdays and anniversaries. I can tell you that the painting has given us great enjoyment but I can't express to you the level of that enjoyment. Thank you."  David, Santa, Fe, NM

It arrived. We took the plastic off, and we both stood in amazement, uttering only one word, wow.  We hung it, and again, wow.  Marcy's daughter came upstairs saw it on the wall, you guessed it, wow was her comment. I sat and looked at the painting, I watched the wind blow through the trees, I was there, I could hear the stream, feel the breeze, hear the eagle, it was amazing.  Joe & Marcy, Carmel, IN

The paintings arrived and we have reached the following conclusions: 1.  Never has the packing job on any paintings we have purchased over the years come close to matching the thorough and excellent job you did! ....and
2.  The paintings look even more beautiful than they did in your gallery!!  Reid & Suzi, Scottsdale, AZ
 I look at my painting everyday and absolutely love it. It's so cheerful and joyous. Please let Cara Moran know. I just love it. Paige, Yorba Linda, CA

“Just wanted to let you know we received the artwork today and LOVE it!!! It looks beautiful in the living room, and we love the inner gold framing–good call. Thanks again for all your help! We’ll be sure to stop in next year when we’re in Laguna!” Phyllis, Garden City, NY

Todd Paxton's Journey to Wisdom, "There is a quality to this piece that reaches beyond the horizon into the next world and returns a measure of grace.  It is destined to become more than a part of my home, more a friend and a part of my "family" I am thinking." Daniel, Sacramento, CA

“I’m thrilled that ‘Color of Assisi’ is officially mine now! I’ve attached a couple of pictures of where my painting hangs in my apartment. I cannot exactly put into words how much this painting means to us.  I get compliments on it all the time and mostly, it just brings ME so much joy! Tony let me know about his trip to see ya’ll again. I can’t deny that I was jealous, as I would love to return to your gallery. Thank you for making his experience so great – again. We are some of your biggest fans!” Karen & Toni, Dallas, TX

“We are so pleased with the artworks we purchased from your gallery. They add so much to the beauty of our Desert Mountain home. What a wonderful experience your gallery and personnel have been! I would recommend your gallery to anyone.” Karl & Wendy, Salt Lake City, UT

“Thank you and Cara with my warmest wishes for making the time to come in and speak with me about the commission piece.
I am so excited, and think there is just something so special about her art. I think it is the greatest gift we can give ourselves to still see light and color and brightness regardless of the adversity and struggle we survive. Perhaps it is that vibrant undercurrent in her use of color, texture and ultimately spirit that so resonates with me and my own journey. I think her paintings are what all of my favorite songs put together would look like if music had a portrait.” Rebecca, Coronado, CA

 “Mark, Cara’s (Moran) painting arrived approx 2 hours ago. I carefully unwrapped it and hung it up. It’s BEAUTIFUL!  I LOVE, LOVE, LOVE it!  Please let Cara know how happy you and she have made me!” Betsy, Arlington, VA

“We had been in almost every gallery in Santa Fe, but did not find a piece that spoke to us. As we happened to be walking back from brunch and my wife noticed the Signature Gallery and we went in. The sales person was a pleasure to work with - informative, pleasant with a great sense of humor and. We both indicated that we were completely taken by Charles Pabst. Mountain Calm was exactly what we had been looking for. We left the gallery to walk to our hotel and before we reached it we had decided to return and purchase the piece. Again Phillip was great to work with and the kind of person I would love to have as an employee – bright, articulate, well informed and engaging. I wanted to pass on my compliments to you for first for your work, secondly the gallery and thirdly a great staff.” Dave & Pam, Castle Rock, CO  

 “We received the Original (Charles Pabst Paris Reflections) last week, and finally had time yesterday to hang it.  Wow, is it beautiful! We’re so happy that things worked out as they did.  Thank you for all your help, we couldn’t be happier.” Todd and Laurie, Independence, Mo.  

“I have become quite a fan of yours! My husband and I are really enjoying the art that we purchased…. The paintings have brought so much color and life to our home!” Beth, Scottsdale, AZ
“We had a party yesterday and we proudly showed off our pieces. Everybody loved both of them. Thanks once again for your help and expertise and making the whole experience so enjoyable. “ Marina and Muhammad, Dubai

   “I just wanted to say ‘Thanks’ for all your help in framing and delivering Desert Treasures to us. You were absolutely right about the framing. It has been wonderful working with everyone associated with The Signature Gallery. We think Charles does spectacular work and has a wonderful, unique family.” Jan and Jim, Oro Valley, AZ  

“Phillip, We were very pleased to meet you in your gallery on July 3rd. Please see the photo attached. We apologize for the long delay in sending this photo to you. You are a very talented young artist and we will be honored to hear more good news about your accomplishments in the future.” Jenchi & Shuling, Taiwan  

“Ramona – As usual you’ve come through for us!  Bob and Paula received Sunset Limited this morning and already have it hanging in their living room. They sent us a touching text message thanking the four of us! The girls were crying.  of course the guys won’t cry (snicker). You continue to exceed our expectations.  Congratulations on a job well done!!!” Gerry and JJ, Fountain Hills

Desert Duo arrived today in perfect condition.  It is an amazing addition to our home – we love it! Hal and I want to thank you for giving us a truly wonderful experience in your gallery. Hope all goes well with you.  Give Little Prince a pet and tell him that I will be calling about him in a few months.  Thanks for everything,” Cathy & Hal, Grand Junction, CO  

 “After several hours in your gallery with excellent, pleasant and low-key guidance from you and others, I recently ordered Charles Pabst’s “Colorado River” for my wife’s birthday birthday.  It arrived in a timely fashion and this weekend it was unwrapped.  The packaging was splendidly safe for the picture and everything was in perfect shape. Thanks to your staff for the care that went into this critical but unexciting step. Thanks so much for a very successful Birthday present for Geri. Great work.” Russ & Geri, Del Mar, CA

“Thank you again for the great service on the delivery and installation of our recent purchase of Golden River by Charles Pabst. It looks just perfect in our dining room. It was a pleasure working with you.” Joanna & Bill, Scottsdale, AZ  

 “I want you to know that your representative in Laguna Beach who worked with us was a great pleasure to work with…. He might have been surprised when we did not hesitate to grab the painting we liked. It was our very first gallery purchase, so it was a major event for us. His courtesy and helpfulness are remembered and appreciated.” Bob & Annette, San Jose, CA  

 “Went through your website, your galleries, all your artists and all the art. I must tell you, you have a fine “stable” of artists presenting some fine art to the public. You and your quality staff have put together a First Class operation. Can’t believe no one picked up Nature’s Retreat before I did. I say that every time I look at it, like, “How did I get this?” Thank you for painting the small paintings for us “small” people.” Steve, Bayonne, NJ  

“Our painting is now the focal point of our family room & lights up the whole room….” Dave & Andrea, Scottsdale, AZ

  “I want to thank you for your help in selecting the giclee Desert Treasures. It is my first piece of real art and I love it. I’m using it as 'wallpaper' on my computer, so I can see it everyday when I’m overseas…. Kudos to the young man who delivered and hung it. He was great!” Sue, Tucson, AZ  

“I want to express my gratitude for the paintings you completed for our home here in Las Vegas…. We are in love with your work and so appreciated how you interpreted our commission. You got our thoughts and desires just perfect.”  Alan & Margaret, Las Vegas

“Vivie figured that it was in 2010 that we first saw it.  We came out twice in the same year to California. Each time we saw the painting we wanted it, but it was not to be. When we stopped in the gallery again to see if it was still there.  It was!  And I said to Vivie, ‘If the Good Lord wants us to have it, He will work out the details’, and He has!”  Brian & Vivie, Trenton, FL  

“The painting arrived today and it looks fantastic! Wow, the colors are extraordinary! The framing matches very well and you packaged everything so nicely. Thank you so much for the time and service you gave me.”  Peter, San Francisco, CA  

“Mr. Pabst, Kathy and I wish to thank you so very much for creating the wonderful Everything in Its Time oil painting of for our 47th wedding anniversary. For two years I thought about what we want the painting to contain and decided you were the artist to create the painting we sought. Our expectations for this painting were really high, but when we saw it for the first time, we could not take our eyes off of it. It way exceeds our highest expectations. Kathy and I have traveled the world extensively, and this painting is second to none in our minds. Thank you.”  David and Kathy, Phoenix, AZ  

 “I like the way you do business. We will be back this coming weekend to pick out another.”  Robert, Whittier, CA  

“We wish to let you know how very much we’re appreciating our first piece of professional artwork! We searched for months and came across Charles Pabst’s work just recently. We purchased a large giclee of Grand Canyon Gold just this week…. We are now saving for our next piece.”  Diane and Paul, Tucson,  AZ
