I Love Artwalk logoThanks to everyone who came out in the chilly weather for the January Downtown Art Walk at Hemming Plaza! It's always nice to see familiar faces and new ones as well. If you haven't made it out to Art Walk yet, you should give it a try. There's so much to see and do! Great art, crafts, food and entertainment. Mark your calendar for Feb. 4, 2015 from 5:00 p.m. to 9:00 p.m. and come on out and enjoy the Jacksonville Downtown Art Walk!

Pappy is currently down south in Okeechobee, Florida painting a few kiddie rides.

Painting of four white carousel horses.
Jim has painted many types of carnival ride pieces over the years and carousel horses are a personal favorite. These horses are primed out white and waiting for the painter to bring them to life with bright and cheerful colors and all the fancy trappings and trim.
