Mount Dora Art Walk



We went to another Art Walk in Downtown Mount Dora last night. It was unusually cold for Central FL. I think it was in the lower to mid 40s while we were there. We're normally a lot warmer here, so we didn't stay as long as we have in the past. This Art Walk was apparently a special one, but we were unaware until we got home. Ha! Yeah, we pay attention. I guess the FL Highwaymen were there with a special exhibit in the Donnelly Building. We didn't go up that far, so we didn't see them. No problem, though. They'll be there until Sunday at 5, so we can go back.

The big party seemed to be at the Mount Dora Center for the Arts. We didn't bother trying to go in because it was shoulder to shoulder already. That's not my idea of fun. Here's the Center during the day.


Next door is the Artisan Gift Shop. Isn't that the cutest sign?


My favorite new place to go is the Bowersock Gallery. The art there is just fantastic and so interesting to me. Joel and Kolby even seem to enjoy the place. It's new to Mount Dora. I believe they have a sister gallery up north somewhere.

I don't have any photos of the art. They generally frown upon taking photos of art in galleries and museums, ya know. But I did manage to get a couple photos of the guys and some Christmas decor that they've yet to take down. Which I can totally understand. It's beautiful and must have taken a lot of work to put up.




Since I didn't get any photos of myself while there, here's one I took when I got home. I couldn't let my good hair and make-up day go to waste.

Hint and Test

There is a problem with my recent posts where I used Blogpress from my phone. I found a fix for the problem, so this is a test to make sure it works AND a hint at what I'm working on creatively.

What's On My Table

Just an unfinished practice sketch for a class I'm taking over at www.willowing.ning.com. It needs some details and shading, but it's close to done. I'll finish this practice sketch and move on to the actual watercolor paper this weekend.
