First Art Chalk Walk in Buffalo!

The quaint town of Buffalo, Wyoming held it's very first chalk event on August 3, 2011.  Artists, both young and old, came to town to create works of art on the sidewalk down Main Street for the first (and hopefully not last) time.
I started about 9 am on my area right outside the front door of the Chamber of Commerce.  They were very excited to have me there.  I worked all day, with a short break for lunch and a short rain sprinkle around 1pm.  Finished this piece around 7pm.  Size is 6' x 8', and the original art is by Terry Kelly Moyers.  I loved the cheerfulness and color of this piece, and everyone loved it too.  Weather was warm, people were great!  The event was put together by Marie Verger and the Buffalo Downtown Assoc., and they did a great job!
