Sarah and I moved to Columbia for a short period, while she is finishing her Doctorate. Columbia has been nice, but I didn't have a great place to work. With a baby on the way, Sarah, Isabel (the dog), and I were quickly outgrowing our little duplex. I was beginning to get worried about my work situation when a man named Henry Foster approached me and said "you really need to come check out The Climb! "
So I did. And it was awesome!
The best way to describe The Climb is as an intellectual man cave. Henry and a few other guys had set up a place for people to come and relax, read, paint, work, learn, and have good conversation. Henry, Craig, and I are the painters. Steve, David, and the John's are preachers.
Paintings by the very talented Craig Houston line the walls of the main hallway, surrounding Henry's theological library.
My paintings are in the board room/dining room where we eat lunch almost every day. We always host a few guests for lunch as well.
We also have a great studio space to work.
Well... some of us work.
So, now I am welcoming everyone else to come check out our place at 1622 Bull St. in Columbia. There is almost always someone here brewing a fresh cup of coffee... so come on in.
