I will be one of the invited Madonnari at the 2nd annual Victoria International Chalk Art Festival. Street painting artists from California, Florida, Oregon and the Netherlands will be performing this art form on Government Street to Centennial Square in downtown Victoria. It should also be a good time to check out the sites of Victoria, BC. More photos to follow after the event. >> Festival site here
It was exciting but an exhausting weekend. I’ve survived the high heat at the 2013 Italian Street Painting Marin. Over 200 artists have participated to return to this festival after a 2 year absence in downtown San Rafael.
I’ve continued my choice of the 40’s glamorous cover girl illustrations by Crandell Bradshaw. It was a scorcher of a weekend but it was also fun seeing my Madonnari friends. Hope you enjoy this rendition!

The street painting festival in Lake Worth was a success! [Feb 23 – 24]. The Saturday evening downpour was unexpected but my work on the 1st day survived the rain. Whew!
The piece I rendered was from Cosmopolitan Magazine circa 1941 with Veronica Lake on the cover illustrated by Bradshaw Crandell. 12 feet x 10 feet in diameter. Can’t wait for the next street painting festival event!
