I get that. Yet, there was plenty of parget wall to paint on.  Hopefully, that will happen next year.

It rained most of the first day, & was raining when I took the above shot.

Artist: Ever Galvez

On day 1, the rain washed away all of the Chalk Artists’ efforts. On day 2 they worked very hard to make up time that was lost to nature.

  1. So very colourful and what a shame about the rain. Glad you didn’t fall in the river while stepping back to get “that shot” dear Resa. lol. Big hug. Ralph xoxox ❤ #<

  2. As I scrolled you answered questions I wanted to ask… Thank You..
    Like: Is the first image on canvas, or does it only appear that way?
    And: The chalk pieces will last only as long as it doesn’t rain….. Yep!
    As you’ve said, Resa; maybe next year they may be given some permanence … Still, it’s a good start! 🙂

    1. There’s more to come. I really need more posts to feature the artists and their work. I am working on it a bit every day. I took 700 pics over 2 days.

    1. I love the dog!!! Wait til you see more of the finished art & the chalk artists & their work! The organizers have told me there is another Festival next year. 😀

  3. I feel sorry for those who lost their work on day one, it’s a wonderfully eclectic mix of art and artists. There needs to more of these events happening around the world.

      1. A month, that is impressive, you’ll be in seventh heaven! I will get to Sunnyside soon by the way my friend. I want to get that feeling for the idea we were talking about o so long ago (or so it seems).

  4. I like to see the styles contrasted like that. Sath’s style is more like traditional painting and some of the others were very stylized and graphic or comic-book like. I love them all — the colors were outstanding. I can’t believe they were put on canvases and not made more permanent. They are too easy to deface or destroy that way. They would have to be brought inside to be protected, I would think.

Speak your art mind!
