Street Painting From My point of View

Street Painting looks like so much fun, takes you back to your childhood when chalk was first handed you and like painting,  someone is bound to say my kid can do that, only this time I caught the mothers enjoying their own chalk painting in the children’s area”here they are

here they are

  DSCN0885This is strictly from my point of view as an artist, spectator.  I attempted to follow certain artists but when the unexpected rain shower came it became a challenge for me as well as  the artists..   Below in the previous post I showed Richard DelPonte’s work, here is the aftermath and to be truthful I liked it much better.

this is Richard spirits still up.

Then I had great expectations for Andrew Wyeth’s “Around the Corner”  in progress.  Oh well, here is the before and the results.  She continued working the following day on something more modern and in keeping with the color palett that was already set.  andrew-wyeth-around-the-corner

DSCN0719DSCN0964 The 2nd morning was a disaster for many of the artists.  Madonnari  is a case of, here today and gone tomorrow.  So the less skilled wanna be artists abandoned their project and left this.  Totally irrelevant to me.  This separated the real artists with passion.

Thought this worked out  really well.

Thought this worked out quite well in front of the fun loving Lisa Marie beauty shop.

DSCN0979DSCN0978 This turned out to be one of my favorites, charming and unexpected, with monochromatic colours.  The  bottom image  is the photo pasted next to the art work.  Great Job! DSCN1045 Indeed something to shout about  Happy Birthday Lake Worth! This was right in front of Paws on the Avenue. DSCN1053 Ditto irrelevant.  But check out below what the other artists accomplished from Dreyfoos School of Art.   One of the iconic paintings from Vincent VanGogh.  His friend the local post master Joseph Roulin who posed frequently for Vincent in Arles. DSCN1008DSCN1062 This also was a stunning work of art, based on an original work of art, done by one of the schools.  An owl spread over 30 feet in length and they also staid the course.  Kudos to all of you.   Photographed Monday morning 6:30 a.m. DSCN0984 This epitomizes the spirit of the Street Painting festival.

The set up started very early on Saturday morning when all of the Lake Worth maintainance crews were out in the streets.  Streets were washed and  swept, barricades set up and all was ready for the first artists to arrive.  Volunteers had on those blue shirts.   Maryann Webber below sprained her ankel and still maintained her cheerfulness. DSCN0601

DSCN0926 DSCN0480 This then was my all time favorite.   Never realized till I  just now edited all the photos and found I had captured it from the beginning. and last photo was taken this Monday morning.  Alfons Mucha’s  Reverie c1897  Sorry do not know the artists name as I just observed them in admiration.   She was out very early applying pounce onto her area, an ancient technique.   DSCN0602Then I caught sight on my  volunteer rounds, still in the dark about what it will be.  If there was a winner, this would be  top of my list.  It was exquisit, I stared at the beauty of how she handled the lips, the colours remained true.   I spend some time admiring it on several occasins.DSCN0788
