Your chalk artwork is incredible. I would love to be a sidewalk artist. I feel like it must be so rewarding to create masterpiece that anyone walking down the street will see and admire. The sidewalk becomes your own personal studio for anyone to see and enjoy. Really brillant pieces.

Its a lot of fun! and incredibly addicting to do. Its actually considered a preforming art where the patrons of the town have a place to gather to watch. You get to hear all kinds of feedback, and all the chalk artists I've met are incredibly nice. Were like a little art support group! If you've ever considered doing it give it a shot! Its very taxing on the body which some people can not handle, and you do have to battle the weather sometimes or the occasional sprinkler going off, but other then that there really isn't anything negative about it. :D
