…is always the day after the Indio Chalk Festival. After painting a 6’x6′ chalk painting on concrete on Wednesday, and rubbing the chalk thoroughly into the grain of the concrete, I have no fingerprints. I also have sore knees, and I didn’t think I did a lot of kneeling!
This is the third time that I have been invited to participate in this festival as a professional artist creating a showcase piece the day before the festival officially opens. I was also present on Thursday and worked with John Weidenhamer on some of the logos for local tv stations and newspapers and encouraged some passers-by to join in.
Here are some more images MyDesert.com put on their website. Mamun and Bijan’s work is quite outstanding.
