I've been wanting to go to a sidewalk chalk art show for a really long time. When I saw billboards advertising a Chalk Art Festivals to raise money for kids in Foster Care...w00t!
I put the event at the top of my "things to do" list.
I convinced Bernie to make the event our Friday Night Date Night Date.
Sweet, and not even finished yet.
Yes...artists suffering for their art!
Noooo! In this case: Crab cake salad. Yum! I guess I was still on a Southern food kick!)
By the time we finished dinner Peter Pan's picture had progressed nicely.
Lots of them drew a grid and filled in each grid to match the grid of the picture they were using.
window shopping was in order.
OK ladies: tell the truth: Is this dress a thumbs up or thumbs down?
My high school home ec. sewing teacher would have had a stroke if I had turned in something like this. Is it possible that sewing has become a lost art and such raw stitching is the best that can be expected now days? Or is this an excellent example of cutting edge (HA! pun intended!) punk/steam punk/indie couture?
(I'm wearing a dress that I sewed as I type this. If I were to take it off and turn it inside out...it could look close to this. Wonder if I should try wearing it like that at work?)
I"m thinking the floral hat is a Sally Victor...
Bernie did some shopping too...at the sporting good store.
Yes, it doesn't take much for us to have fun on a Friday night.
Best of all, we were able to support a good cause too.
Be on the look out; there may be a similar fund raiser coming to your area soon!
