Weather definitely has improved, clouds looming but the show goes on for the eager young artists, old pros alike. Missing is one artists, Richard DelPonte who for 20 years has done this street painting event. This would have been his 21st year. In the former C of C bldg hung a beautiful painting of the Street Painting Festival of yesteryear painted by him. It, also happens to be missing.
DO NOT CALL THE FBI JUST BEEN INFORMED THAT THIS BEAUTIFUL LARGE PAINTING IS NOT MISSING AND NOT STOLEN . IT JUST BECAME MORE VALUABLE AS IT HAS ALL THIS PRESS AND HUBBA BALU (Hey Richard not a bad ending to 20 years and now some provenance.. HOPE to see it in a nice public spot like City Hall or our new Information Center. It represents our fine City.
The crowds are arriving and into the second hour the streets are filling. There are new additions to the event and you have seen nothing yet. Tomorrow have a look at the professional shooters from the areas camera clubs and how our merchants doing downtown. The Paintings revealed! My understanding is, there is no theme but there always is. Don’t wait for tomorrows blog to enjoy the Street Painting Festival vicariously come on out and be a part .
Paintings start to reveal themselves but won’t be finished until tomorrow. But oh what a side-show, and there is something for everyone.
the music was outstanding check out these dancers, they could no help themselves and they did not come together. When the song was over each went a different direction one sauntered west on Lake Ave east with her mother and home for a good nights sleep.
