Tomorrow is my Open Studio

If you are in the area stop by Friday the 7th 4:00-8:00pm. It is my annual open studio and the day our house goes on the market. If you are looking to live in Colorado Springs this is a prime location with views from Pikes Peak all the way to the Spanish Peaks a 100 miles away. It is a 3,200+ square foot house on a full area of land, at the end of the street (4485 Emerald Dr.) for lots of privacy.

All my photographic art and the award winning book “Great Ranches of the West” will be 1/2 price at this event. I will not have the storage space while we build our new house on our ranch land. Also there are just 10 copies left of  my first book “Colorado Rocky Mountain Wide”. Let me know if you want one of these collector items. They are all marked “One of the last 12 copies”.

The excitement is building!

That means my wife is getting nervous about how how we are going to get everything ready by the 7th. It’s one thing to be the great hostess she is for a regular open studio, but another to also have the house ready to present to prospective buyers. She’ll be glad to know that I cleaned out my workshop today. By all accounts that is the messiest place for miles around. So come on over to 4485 Emerald Dr. on Oct. 7th for the open studio/open house.

Open House & Open Studio – Same Night

Mark your calendars for Oct 7th, 4:00-8:00pm. Our house is going on the market just at the time of my open studio. It’s hard to believe that it was 40 years ago when I opened The Air Castle, a photographic gallery in California. So this is a big anniversary event & you can purchase the “Great Ranches of the West” book for 1/2 price, as well as any of the photographic art on display that night. There will be art, music & food. Come on out. Here are a few photos of our place. If you or any of your friends are looking for a great new place to live come check us out.
