Images Art Show, New Smyrna Beach, Fl—Finally, a great show, and in my hometown

This was my second show of the year, on the last weekend of January.

This is a three day show with setup on the morn of the first day, which was Friday.

New Smyrna Beach, we call it NSB, is just south of Daytona Beach on the Atlantic.

Sadly those days are long gone.
