Mt Dora Art Festival

I had a great time this weekend at the Mt Dora Art Festival. They say the event grows each year with more than 250,000 attendees in recent years. I believe it! It was elbow to elbow downtown! I wouldn't have missed it, though. It was so inspiring! I collected cards from each of my favorites, with the exception of a couple that were out of them. Here they are:

That list isn't even a drop in the bucket of how many talented artists were in attendance. If you can make it to the annual Mt Dora Art Fest, don't miss it! It will be worth a drive. Sorry, I don't have any pictures. I would have taken some, but the place was packed so tight it was hard to even move, for one, and they ask you not to take photos of the work, for another. I didn't want to make any artists nervous. I did take a video with my cell as we were leaving. It's on 12 seconds.com Nothing really interesting, though. Just 12 seconds of us leaving the festival. I'm trying to catch up with Joel in the short clip. Visit my other blog to view it.

I will be posting another painting that I finished soon, and another CC Doll.

I am so glad that you got to go both days and enjoy it so much. I hope I can be there for the next one. I remember the first one I went to you with...great day. Maybe you can come to the ones they have in Washington. Spring and Fall! The last week end in April and the first week end in November...I think. I will check to be sure. They have been pretty good too. Not as big a Mt. Dora though.
Love ya Heapes, Bibbi

Rodenberger's art is a lot like Russ Taylor's. I love that style!
I looked at each one on your list, with a lot of inspiration and ready to go paint something.
