My wife and I had started raising our family in the beautiful North Shore of Lake Superior where the sun only shined half the time. We took a job offer of inspecting the laying of the Fiber optic cable and traveled the coast of the Gulf of Mexico and when the 911 tragedy hit, that was the end of our jobs. So we traveled to the breath taken views of Colorado Springs, Colorado. So now we live out in a prairie looking over Fort Carson and directly due west is the setting of the sun over the beautiful Cheyenne mountains, and Pikes Peak. That alone just viewing that, as you are throwing a nice barbecue on the deck gets you interested in the beauty of art. There is where, I design and build a lot of my props for my photographs. As I am still in the beginning stages and learning how to advertise this site. It certainly is going to be a lot of fun as I venture to get known in the art world. I use the name Rustic Wizard as I do have a site where I sell my art work, and you could get to it through Rusticwizard.com. I love boating and 4 wheeling with my old 55 Willy's CJ 5 roaming through the fields and hitting the ravines with my Boston Bull Terrier and my over grown Fawn Doberman. I certainly thank you for reading this.
