Indio Chalk Festival, Day 3.

I awoke to a cloudy sky.  There had been a forecast of possible overnight rain, and I had put a tarp over my painting, though it was not big enough and I could only tarp about 60% of the finished part.  As I was starting to get ready to leave, it started to rain.  There wasn’t any time in which to hurry any faster.  It rained a little as I drove the 40 miles to Indio.  When I got there, Mamun (the city planner) was walking out to the parking lot.  He said to me ‘It rained hard here overnight, it’s a disaster, it’s all gone.’  $%&#$%^. Then he confessed he was joking.  $%&#$%^, Mamun!

We did have some sprinkles during the day, much of the morning I had most of my work tarped, even under the canopy.  It cleared up in the afternoon, though there is still a forecast of rain overnight.    Here’s the progress.

Some clouds and a bit of space going in.

All the sky is done now.

Here come the clouds – in more ways than one.

I’m hiding it from the rain here, some is blowing in under the canopy.

Space is finished, now to add space objects.

All done except for those cracks I found I can fill with chalk easily

Some of the crowds, some of the clouds. It actually got a lot** busier than this, but I was busy at that time.
