You’re invited to shop my annual Private Studio Sale on November 4 and 5, from 11:00 am – 5:30 pm. You’ll find plentiful parking, no admission fees/crowds, just a laid back, pressure-free shopping experience, with some light refreshments…And yes, you can bring your friends too!

My friend Bob Simbari has been taking beautiful photographs around here for many years, and he has an uncanny sense of color, capturing amazing sunrises and sunsets, among other things.
