I am going to contribute a signed Half Dome 50th anniversary piton to the fund raising effort for Big Mike. Royal Robbins, Jerry Gallwas and Mike Sherrick graciously signed 23 of these for me back in 2008 and about half of them are still left to help folks in need.





Buy one for $250 and the proceeds will go directly to Big Mike. I will cover the shipping costs in North America. Your choice of the remaining numbers available.

Send me an email if you would like to buy one. The first email gets the piton. I will announce the sale once it happens.

THE FACE IS NOT YET... THIS IS JUST A 'TEST', :))

OR, can offer a medium to large dreamcatcher for you, :)

it used far less oil-paint than the egret, as well, so the bids
can start a bit lower, if anyone has room for a painting, anywhere...

will leave it here a for a bit, and see how it goes, :)
