Off with the Chalk!

Since I have had a number of questions regarding what happens to the chalk paintings after they are done, here is an answer. I know it seems harsh, but that's what makes this medium so great. The only thing I don't understand though is why they have to be so happy to do it! (Just for your knowledge though, I did ask them to do this so they happy obliged!) Quite a difference from the previous days flower image to this wouldn't you say!

Art in Bloom 2009

This years "Art in Bloom" at the Minneapolis Institute of Arts was a mix of beautiful spring weather and lots and lots of people. I had the joy of recreating Cy DeCosse's "White Lotus" for the Saturday festivities. Given the fact I only had a little more than three hours, I think the piece turned out rather well. This street painting measured 7' x 7'.
