Sam Flax keeps my art addiction supplied.

I must stop into Sam Flax, 1800 E Colonial Dr, Orlando, FL, at least once a week for pens, pencils, watercolors or sketchbooks. Doing a sketch every day means I burn through art supplies. I also now use the print department when people order limited edition prints of my work. Murals by local artists decorate the wall next to the entrance. Some of the staff recognize me since I'm in so often. It would be reassuring if they shouted "Norm!" when I walked in. However, since that isn't my name, I guess that makes no sense.

On Thursdays there are artist workshops which I keep hoping to sketch. On July 16th there is a Metal Tree Art Demonstration by Jessica King.  On July 23rd there is a watercolor pencils demonstration by Tahnee Jane. On July 30th there is painting to music by Leslie Adams. The free classes are from 5-6pm so Mark Your Calendar!

Prints are available for each sketch for $250 and many originals can be purchased for $400. White museum grade shadow box frames are $100 more. You can e-mail Thor at
