Beautiful Ocala

Magnolias in bloom with spanish moss.
Red-Bellied Woodpecker
Golden Yellows
Oaks covered in Spanish moss
After the rain
Sparrow
Succulent
Salt water pool
I fell head over heels in love with the majestic oaks covered in Spanish moss
and the gorgeous magnolias that were still in full bloom.
If it had been warmer those days I would have enjoyed my dad's salt water pool.

My parents live in Jacksonville and I went to college in St. Augustine. I'm now in DC and dream about the magnolias and the moss. I miss the South. Glad you had a great time!

I lived in Ocala as a child! Even though I still live in the south, I'm not deep enough to have the live oaks. I miss them!! Such fond memories of climbing...

I remember those oaks when we visited Florida, I think they are a bit spooky....Love the woodpecker, looks like his head is lit up, what an amazing colour. Little spoggy in the tree too, ahw cute.

I live near there (I see someone else here is from Gainesville). What a small world this is sometimes - I am a HUGE fan of yours. I own several of your prints, books that have your covers or other illustrations, and was fortunate enough to be able to buy one of your miniature bird books last year. Thank you for making such beautiful things - and I still can't believe you were so close!

An art form is the specific shape, or quality an artistic expression takes. The media used often influence the form. For example, the form of a sculpture must exist in space in three dimensions, and respond to gravity. The constraints and limitations of a particular medium are thus called its formal qualities. To give another example, the formal qualities of oil painting are the canvas texture, color, and brush texture. The formal qualities of video games are non-linearity, interactivity and virtual presence. The form of a particular belstaff jackets outlet is determined by the formal qualities of the media, and is not related to the intentions of the artist or the reactions of the audience in any way whatsoever as these properties are related to content rather than form.
