Fourth of July 2020
I wanted to do some more chalk art in my driveway this year, seeing as all chalk art events have been canceled. I hadn't done any so far because it has been so rainy. I knew that I wanted to do something for the Fourth of July and the weather cleared so I did! I worked on it for two days. I started on July 1 and finished on July 2. It came out pretty good, if I don't say so myself! It was so nice working in my own driveway. If I forgot something, had to go to the bathroom, needed a drink, or to cool off, all I had to do was go into my own house!
The finished product!
Day #1 the start...I have a nice place picked out on my driveway. I don't even have to tape it off there is already a block that I can work in! I would usually work in the morning, because it is cooler, but I discovered that this spot in my driveway is shaded in the afternoon, so I had to work in the heat of the day. But it wasn't too bad, because it was well shaded! I didn't even have to use sunscreen!

Finished the flag

End of day one...hot and tired. But I got more than I though done today!
Beginning of day #2
Nice and shady today!
Decided to add the stars at the last minute...like the addition!
Didn't take too long to finish, since I had already started it the day before!
Kind of shady for picks though!
Shade is gone the next day and it still looks great!
Lasted all though the 4th of July. Got a lot of people coming by to look!
This is after a week, still looking pretty good!
Finally a hard rain about two weeks later took it away!
