June 2016

Hi All, This was done June 11 at the North Beach festival in San Francisco…in 4 hours flat! I must have been in the zone or something. That’s ridiculously fast. 😉    It is a boy with his face painted in Italian flag colors. It was 7ft x 10ft.

Shown here is a street painting I did Memorial Day weekend of last month in Santa Barbara, CA at the Mission. This is “The Healing of the Blind Man” as requested by the sponsor of my 8′ x 8′ square, Christ the King Episcopal Church Healing Prayer Ministry.  They seemed to like it, which is always the goal! 🙂

The African Queen

Hi All, This was Bakersfield, CA two weeks ago. I had a great time, the weather was nice, and the pavement was amazing as usual. I took some artistic license this time with the image – as you will see. I altered a few things for the sake of limited time and to add more pizazz and vibrant color where it counts on the ground in a situation like this.

As far as I can remember, I’ve never taken such liberties before. Notice the eye color and highlight difference. Simplifying her clothing was in the interest of time. This painting took about 2 full days – starting Friday afternoon and finishing Sunday afternoon. The weather was perfect, I had my easy-up and so was in the shade! Halleluiah! The ground was fabulously newly blacktopped, as it is every year. I LOVE that about this festival.

Here’s the beautiful reference photo:

This may be my last street painting of the season…we’ll just have to wait and see!

More Street Chalking

Saturday and Sunday, I did another street painting festival in San Luis Obispo, CA. Here are the results. She was 10ft x 10 ft. I started Saturday morning about 9 and “finished” Sunday about 2pm. I did take time to eat and sleep. 🙂 Enjoy!
