Why Does This Dog Have Red Paws?

As one of the few four-legged creatures in attendance at the Street Painting Festival, he managed to get some of the pastel chalks on his feet. He had a street level view of the artwork too.

This event is one that we like to visit every year if we can because it is always amazing to me what creative folk can do in just a few short hours with an idea and a box of pastels.

I don’t know how many of you have ever been to one of these types of events but this one is free and the energy there is great. You see all kinds of artistic styles.

We had this idea of going up to the top level of a nearby parking deck to get a bird’s eye view of the artwork. It was absolutely amazing! I wish you could have been there.

I snapped a few photos of some of the pieces that were nearly complete while we were there.

Water will eventually wash away all these pictures but for a couple of days, this downtown street will look like a patchwork quilt of art.


  1. How amazing! I would love to see that! I'm watching your countdown, too! It won't be long now! Have a wonderful Sunday!

  2. Oh my goodness, that is some amazing art they have drawn, it's a shame the water will wash it away it should be able to stay there that is so inspriring there were many amazing art works just drawn on the ground wow they have got some talent. That poor little dog picture for a second you had me going I thought the little dog, had hurt paws :0)
