    Well done! Another great investment at your property!

    I’m currently trying to start writing War & Peace in North Carolina, but may need to return to Spain. But since I’m letting out my entire house in Madrid…………

    Muchos besos, Ed

      Mike and I can’t think of anyone we would rather have as our first artist-in-residence in the Gallinero, Edward.

    Maureen and Mike,
    (Wrote this once and lost it…) B and I are interested in about a month work/stay this winter – actually any time from November through April, Jan/ Feb being best for us. Any openings? We talked once about an arranged residence/studio swap for someone in Europe/Spain. We have a private residence with studio facilities including an etching press and 13×19″ Epson R1900 digital printer midway between Denver, Colorado Springs, Taos and Santa Fe. I’ll try to call you Friday (late A.AM. here, evening there). That is the 27th, tomorrow.

    I’ve started the drawing ebook – about 2/3ds done. Check it out.
    and our website:
    Cheers,
    Mel and Bernice
