Face of the Week, Mellow Yellow, Ruby Tuesday, Blue Monday / Work in Progress

Click on photos to enlarge!
I spent a few hours, yesterday, at the Chalk Art Festival at El Paseo de Colorado in Pasadena, California USA.
I wish I could say I created these faces instead of just taking photos of  work in progress.
The artist seemed to be in her very early 20's.

This is just one of the many artists participating in this event.
I can't wait to post more throughout this week!

What an artist you found! I love these chalk drawings. It's such a shame that they won't last.

Happy Blue Monday, Carolyn.

You have been out of circulation for a while, hope all is well and welcome back to the blogging world.

Because of its close proximity, we were there at the Chalk Art both Saturday and Sunday. We could have bumped into each other.

I wish I had that talent too!

I love chalk art and we have festivals here in SF as well. It's so fascinating watching these artists at work using concrete as their canvas. These are especially beautiful. A very talented artist.

LV said...

She has a different style of art, but it is very nice. I enjoy seeing what any artist creates.

Linnea W said...

Such talented artists. The faces look so sweet. I love your shots, especially the last one with the colorful chalk resting on the sidewalk. Thanks for stopping by!

Sistertex said...

This is wonderful, I love going to see chalk art, as we have festivals here that feature that as well. I love the way they can draw it so it looks good from the side and it is all different when you are standing right over it. I think it takes a lot of talent and practice. These are beautiful examples. I will have to come back to see the rest of the ones you post. Really like them!

Thanks so much for participating in 'Face of the Week' this week! Hope you have a wonderful week!

Such beautiful art. I sometimes wish they had drawn on wood and kept them. My students sometimes draw on the open space with chalk.

Dimple said...

It is beautiful art. There is something in me which rebels at doing beautiful things that will only last a short while. This artist must have other values! Thanks for capturing the beauty in a form which will last a little longer!

Chalk artists are amazing. They don't seem to mind what happens to what they do so well once it is done and admired. That they know that they can always do it again is surely a wonderful gift to own!

Michael said...

Nice technique the artist has there. Love those rosy cheek faces.

Carol said...
