I can't decode this: is it on the floor?
John Prior: Yes, chalk on the stone pavement Chris.
People are so clever to be able to do this in chalk, on a pavement, in the knowledge that it will disappear and have to be done all over again.
John Prior: Thanks Sheila, several students work together to achieve these.
Great: you were at the right place at the right time. Sooner, it would lost some interest, later, you would have nothing to shot! I like it!
Have a nice day.
John Prior: Thank you Dom.
Is this possibly sidewalk art? A am always amazed because all the hard work is washed away in the rain.
John Prior: Yes Mary, Thank you.
It does look like a painting with a texture screen John.
John Prior: Texture from the paving stones and rain droplets, thanks Brian.
Good job you found it John.
John Prior: Thanks Chad
If I could draw/paint like this, I would have to put it on canvas.I would be so upset the rain would wash it away smile
John Prior: Thank you Linda
