Chalk the Block Easton Oct. 1, 2022
I almost didn't get to do it because I was put on a waiting list. But I did get in after all! When I asked about it he said that they like to give new comers a chance. There were over 70 entries for 40 spaces this year.
It was a beautiful day for chalk art! We spent the night in Westerville, so I was able to get there really early and started before very many people were there. So I got finished very early.
I started with a different idea...I was thinking about doing a fire breathing dragon. But then I found an interesting photo that I rediscovered. I thought that I would be perfect since I was just starting my coloring book with Wapakoneta (the home of Neil Armstrong). Then I did my own version of the photo.
I finished quickly. There is lots of white in this design! I decided to push through and eat a late lunch when I got finished! Good thing too, because it started to rain a little bit. But fortunately the big rain stayed away. Better than last year!
The finished product.

Vandalia Artful Adventure Day
Wasn't sure what to expect for this day of chalk art. It was going to be a day for kids to come a do art. I suggested that I could do an outline for kids to color in with chalk. I decided to use tempera instead of chalk for the outline so it would last longer. I wasn't sure what type of surface to expect so I brought both white and black tempera. If the surface was blacktop I would use white, but if it was sidewalk I would use black. It turned out to be sidewalk so I decided to use black.
I arrived early. The event was to start at 11 so I got there about 9:30. I was finished with my design by the time the event started. I was barely finished and I had kids waiting to color in the lines! By the time I left about 12:30 much of it was colored.
Great day! Not too hot. I will be going back to Vandalia in October! Trying to decide what to do then!
