DRAWING WITH CHALK

A FEW WEEKENDS AGO, CHARLIE AND I TOOK MY NIECE, TOVA, TO A NEARBY TOWN HOLDING A TWO-DAY CHALK THE WALK EVENT. ABOUT THE PICTURE: TOVA WORKING ON PART OF A LARGER MURAL DIVIDED INTO A GRID. FOR $10, WE RECEIVED A BOX OF FANCY CHALK TO WORK ON A PORTION OF THE MURAL.

MORE THAN A HUNDRED ARTISTS DROPPED TO THEIR HANDS AND KNEES TO DRAW AND COLOR SOME AMAZING ARTWORK ON THE STREET. ABOUT THIS PICTURE: I LOVE THE COLORS AND DESIGNS OF THE PEACOCK AND IMPRESSED WITH THE ARTIST’S FIRST CHALK DRAWING.

THIS PICTURE OF ELSA FROM FROZEN WAS TOVA’S FAVORITE CHALK DRAWING. I KNOW I HAVE WAY TOO MANY HOBBIES AND ZERO ARTISTIC ABILITIES, BUT I WOULD LOVE TO DRAW IN CHALK. HEARTS, FLOWERS, AND STICK FIGURES ARE MY BEST WORK. WAIT … I COULD PROBABLY DRAW SNOWFLAKES AND SUNS.

A FANTASTIC DRAWING OF YODA — I LOVE THE COLORS AND VIBRANCE. THE CHALK EVENT REMINDED ME OF SOME 3D CHALK ART I HAD SEEN A FEW YEARS AGO. JUST GOOGLE: 3D CHALK ART — BE PREPARED TO BE AMAZED AT THE DRAWINGS, THE DETAILS, THE CREATIVITY, ETC.

HOLY COW! HOW AMAZING IS THIS CHALK DRAWING OF IRON MAN? NO WONDER THE ARTIST RECEIVED THE PEOPLE’S CHOICE AWARD. *SIGH* SOMETIMES I WISH I HAD AMAZING ARTISTIC ABILITIES. WITH CHALK DRAWINGS, DO I NEED TALENT OR PRACTICE? OR BOTH TO BE A GOOD ARTIST?

THIS IS ONE OF MY FAVORITE DRAWINGS FROM THE EVENT. I LOVE THE FLOW AND DETAILS OF THE SKIRT. THE ARTIST RECEIVED THE ARTISTS’ CHOICE AWARD. EVEN THOUGH TOVA AND I WORKED ON ONE BLOCK OF THE HUGE MURAL, I HAD A GREAT TIME WORKING WITH CHALK AND GETTING MY HANDS DIRTY.

I LOVE LOVE LOVE THIS CHALK DRAWING. HOW CUTE IS THIS LITTLE KITTY CAT? WITH A LITTLE BIT OF PRACTICE ON PAPER, WOULD I BE ABLE TO REPLICATE A SIMILAR KITTY FACE ON A SIDEWALK WITH CHALK? ARGH! SOMETIMES I HATE THE LITTLE VOICE THAT SAYS, “YOU CAN DO THAT!”
