love our town!

this little town I live in... this little town I grew up in... well... it's not so little but still IS a small town and I love it dearly! I love all of the art support that is constantly going on... our town has so much culture and heart which to me... is fantastic! our studio is in Historical Burns Square and every year has a chalk festival! wow... such an artform! we took the family to marvel at the beautiful pieces and oooo and ahhh...

it just means so much to me as an artist... for communities to support art... let the children... let the people of the community be CREATIVE... it's beautiful! when people are able to be creative... it just opens their minds up to so much possibilities! so much is at their fingertips... it's a great feeling to create! it's also a great feeling to see so many fellow neighbors looking and awing at art!

are little one giving it a go at chalk... usually our driveway is covered in chalk... almost every evening we love to sit on our driveway and say hello to our neighbors... have a beer... watch the dogs get walked by... the girls color all over the driveway and up and down our sidewalk... I think this was quite cool for them to see that what that do... is substantial... it's art... it's real.
