Great Website that offers books and downloads for historical walking tours through many of the cities in America. The author of this on-going project spends ALL of his time writing or hiking and discovering new and fascinating places for the walker in you to enjoy. Mr. Gelbert also has a series of books on Hiking With Your Dog throughout America. Frequently his mate and three or four of their dogs join him on the research trips, the dogs like the hiking and eating part; his mate likes the sketching, eating and shopping part. And walking at her own pace!

Kimberly is one of several artist who has influenced me and encouraged me to follow my passion. Ms. Santini is also an awesome instructor and businesswoman, proving that the artist mind can also be an organized and successful!
I love that I can walk down the block and get almost any art supply I need! Great guys own and operate; great customer service and dogs are allowed to help shop.
I do wish they would change their name to The Satiated Artist though!
Florida artist Pat Weaver is a gifted watercolorists, acclaimed author and highly respected instructor. Her work ranges from landscapes and still life to people and animals of all species. Chicken and Roosters too! Pat's influence has been a major factor in my returning to watercolor, in addition to pastels!
One of the main reason I must continue to pursue my career as an artist...so I can justify buying her wonderful creations (after living expenses, of course!)
Not only a wonderful artists, Connie and her mother Barbara, host open studios at the gallery twice a week that allow artists to experiment and grow. Critiques and instruction are shared generously.
