3D Chalk Art at Lake Worth Street Painting Festival – Year 19!

3d street painting machu-picchuSome people insist that size does matter! Well if that’s the case, street painters in south Florida should be pretty darn happy. Big asphalt, big crowds, big fun.

It was hot, sunny and only rained briefly (sudden rain is typical in Florida this time of year) – perfect conditions for a chalk festival.

Wonder Woman - 3d chalk art - Tracy Lee Stum

3d chalk art melts before your eyes! Freshly back from lovely south Florida where I just participated in the 17th Annual Lake Worth Street Painting Festival.

Chinook Salmon 3D street paintingI’ve recently had an opportunity to participate as a guest street painter in the Lincoln City Visitors Bureau sponsored Lincoln City Art Festival, held in the Taft area of town, near the beach.

The festival celebrated 23 years this past weekend and the public support could not have been better.
