Last weekend was the 52nd Annual Ocala Arts Festival and this was my third time participating in the event. While print sales were moderate, the weather was beautiful and I met and talked with a lot of art patrons from Ocala and the surrounding areas.

I agreed to provide her with a few new images from a quick session in downtown Ocala's parking garage, and it looks like we may be working together on several more ideas in the near future.
