I’m excited to announce that we will be moving to Ojai, California (pronounced “oh-high”) where we will open a studio/gallery for my artwork. Sarah and I (and Ian) found a perfect available retail space in the center of town during a trip to California last month and decided to pursue it. We feel like the time is right to take this step to further my art career and to allow Sarah to work with me full-time. We will be making the move in April.
Ojai is a beautiful town of about 8,000 people and is close in proximity to a number of great areas. It’s about 15 miles from the coastal city of Ventura (population 100,000+), about 80 miles from downtown Los Angeles and about 35 miles from Santa Barbara. The town is bordered by beautiful mountains, lush canyons and citrus groves and enjoys a pleasant climate year-round. (I plan to offer plein air painting workshops there as soon as possible so watch for more information to come.)
I will continue to keep you all informed of how we’re doing and I hope you will keep in touch as well. We are sad to be leaving all of our friends and connections in Colorado, but look forward to this next adventure with great anticipation!
