My final chalk art design for the year is usually Halloween. This year it rained right up to the day of Trick or Treat. I knew I wouldn't have very much time to complete my design, so I decided to do something simple. I was going to just do the words "Trick or Treat" up the side of the drive way. I was finished with this in about 15 minutes, so I decided to do more. I thought about a pumpkin, but I didn't want to do the same thing as last year. I thought about a black cat. I settled on a haunted house. This is one of the few times that I've done a design off the top of my head, with no design ahead of time. I sketched it out in white chalk first and then dug in. It took me about an hour to complete, or maybe a little more after adding all the details. I was so limited on time that I forgot to take process pictures this time. I didn't do a background which saved some time too. It came out pretty good if I don't say so myself. I think that it was popular with the neighborhood kids and with my grand kids too.
It was difficult to get a picture of both of the chalk designs.
