Thinking Outside the Garment Bag - i madonnari Chalk Festival
























This is absolutely my favorite festival in Santa Barbara. It is always on Memorial Day Weekend at the Santa Barbara Mission. It is a benefit for the Children's Creative Project. It is a bright spot for an intense weekend of remembering and morning. Memorial Day is a deep and emothinal holiday for most so I love that there is something to do that lightens the load a little.

There is some serous blood, sweat, and tears, amazing hard work, even more amazing art produced by the artists giving their time and love for the festival. My focus was more on them rather that the art it's self. There are so many pictures of those.... Check out the festival's home page Here.

Dylan and I bought a little square for $10....I helped with the sky a little, it was a collaboration, but basically it was all Dylan :) It was so much fun!!













I wish you all a wonderful weekend!

This is actually one of my fun goals for the summer which is to draw on sidewalks with chalk for fun.
