A good day to commit a crime…

6'x6' chalk painting outside Indio City Hall.

6’x6′ chalk painting outside Indio City Hall.

…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.
