2008 Italian Street Painting Festival

This is one of my favorites. I decided to show it unfinished and in it's environment otherwise it might look TOO much like a photograph of a person not a painting.

The type you see at the top of each painting is the sponsor for that space.

The artists are really talented and many pieces are photo realistic. They toil for 2-3 days in the sun and heat only to have it all washed away in the end.

I LOVE sidewalk chalk art, John. I spent 4 hours watching one being done from beginning to end in Amsterdam a year ago. This one reminds me of Vermeer's Girl With a Pearl Earring painting...without the pearl. Such pure dedication to something that is not lasting, except in the emotions and memories of artist and viewers!
John Eagle: You will enjoy the next few days of my posts. This is Juliet and this artist is incredible.

I just went to this years event. It will take a few weeks to go through all the shots. Once I do I will let you know and post again.

Good choice to show it as it is.
John Eagle: Thank, I also felt the bare asphalt made for a nice framing device.
