Via Colori Houston

Challenging moments: had a late start, I did not think I would finish on time.
Memorable Moment: Meeting Lizette by chalk neighbor, we have the same passion for art and teaching kids, Lizette is a 6th & 7th grade art teacher, meeting the photographers who have followed my work over the last 5 years, it's always takes me by surprise when people remember my work, meeting those who come out each year and show me the pics they have taken with their camera or phone, blesses me every single time.

Chalk It Up Prescott 2011
April 16 & 17
Oh what a time we had in Arizona! Dragged my BF Michelle to another streetpainting festival/adventure - Every street painting adventure she's on with me, she gets sunburned. It was such a great compliment to return to a city that remembers your work from the previous year. Was honored to have made the front cover of their local newspaper....wasn't even a featured artist this year. I love this city, it is so peaceful and quite - its always a time of relaxation for me.
Memorable Moment: Meeting Gary & Vanessa of California (in town for the weekend to see a specialist). I watch their daughter walk across the parking w/her dad to their square; she look one of the girls in my collection. I had to introduce myself and ask if it would be possible to draw her portrait. I was able to meet the whole family throughout both days, just a sweet family that know how to enjoy each other. Love it when God ordained moments happen.
