the final piece !! and no that peach color chalk . . . not mine . . . over flow from the square next to me!! i cleaned my work up . . . punched the colors . . added some details (esp. the fish and panda which were first done in the dark of the night !!) added blue one of my favorite things to do to black (some purple too).
and because i was running around i wrote below . . . can u find the 10 animals and name them !? parents were doing it with their kids on their own. once i wrote it everyone joined in. the baby guenon monkey on it's mothers back . . . the hummingbird and the cat were the most missed in about that order. the lemur was often called a raccoon.
in the center of the event was a celebration of the 10th anniversary !!! a 26 foot multi artist piece with lots of x 10 items to be had !!!
i had a train to catch but was going to stay through the 3:00 artist award announcements. but since i was done i washed my face and hands . . . put on a clean shirt. was going to slide jeans on b4 the train . . . try not to look too dirty and homeless !!! but nearing the 3:00 hour i was approached. another artist had to leave. so i grabbed kyra and we got the kids who did the letter 'z' to help. . . . along with one of the artsplash coordinators of the day. oh and one of the kids was being picked up within 30 minutes. it was a drawing of this tree with some flames coming out . . . just the initial drawing . . . some colors laid down on the landscape and that was about it. turning chalk into powder . . . using erasers . . . crushing the chalk and all those hands . . . we were the fastest square in the west !! about 15 minutes . . . we took a sketched out square to completion !!! yay !!! see below . . . oh yeah the camera was on it's way thru !!!
