August 4th Friday

August Forth Friday in Westerville

The Art Council of Westerville said that they needed paw prints to lead to their Arts Alley. So I volunteered. Didn't realize how much work it would be. I made paw prints all the way down the street. I also had some helpers along the way!

                                      The paw prints went all the way down the street!
                       I asks some of the kids to help me and they were more than happy to!

                                    I offered to do a Cross for Fr. Joe and he loved it
  It was so neat to see everyone enjoying my artwork!

Schiller Park 2017

Haus Und Garten Tour 2017

This Chalk Art event was sponsored by the German Village Society as part of their 2017 Garden Tour. It was a great day, I had a great shady spot under a tree that stayed shady all day! Although it made it difficult to photograph my artwork, it was a great place to work!

 I actually began the night before when I came over to paint my space before I began. This is the first time I've tried to paint my space. It did make a nice even surface to work on, but it did have a much different feel to it. Still trying to decide if I will do it again or not.

I really struggled with this one. Doing a landscape with difficult. Too many greens! It seemed like it looked like a green blog for the longest time!

 I got so involved with my art that I didn't take too many process pictures this time.

 Almost finished! before removing the tape.
 It finally came together!
 Here I am tired, but satisfied with my work!
 All finished and cleaned up. Looks pretty good after all!
A thank you to the Greater Columbus Arts Council for the funds for my chalk!

Finished Product!

Chalk About It Dayton

Chalk About it Dayton Ohio

June 10, 2017

First chalk art event of the year. Chalk About It sponsored by Life Essentials at The Green in Dayton, Ohio. 
It was a hot day yesterday. Got started about 10 and finished about 3:30. Wasn't too hot in the morning but got worse as the day went on. By 3:30 I thought I was roasting! I had two Dayton friends come to visit me during the day. In the evening we had a cookout with family and then went back over to see my art again. When we arrived back at the sight I was excited to find people standing around my art and taking pictures!
 Just beginning
 All taped out and ready to go!

 My husband Doug went off for a bike ride while I was working.
