This one happened on tar paper on the kitchen floor. It’s 3ft x 4ft, chalk pastel. The original photo reference is by Bart Nino.



More June 2016

I did this June 25 and 26 in San Rafael, Ca. I recently had a cat adopt me and decided to run with that theme. This was 10 feet by 10 feet.


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.



May 2016


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 last 6 months…

Sorry I’ve been away so long!

There has been more that I’ve done, but here’s a sampling…

Chalk Pastel Demo on pavement


Chalk test exercise on wood board primed with tempera paint



Pastel chalk on Chalk board wall…clearly this one is not finished. I don’t know if I will actually finish it…it’s on the wall in my studio that I painted with chalkboard paint



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:


Here is the 8 ft x 12 ft street painting:


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