Chalk it up to taste by slickeri Chalk it up to taste by slickeri
WOOO! finished! I was so happy to do this piece. Some of my favorite summer memories were making chalk drawings on the sidewalk. It's so much fun to turn that dreary cement into a work of art, and every one gets to enjoy it!

I worked on my entry during my vacation. My family and I visited this really small island beach on the coast of NC. There really is nothing there but adorable little houses in striking colors (an orange house with bright blue shutters!) spread cheerfully along a glowing white strip of beach. I was really inspired by all the beautiful colors that were there and really tried to incorporate that care free kaleidoscope feeling the island gave off. I think you can tell I had a blast doing this. I was so energized, just enjoying the sun and the scenery.

(When I saw this contest in my news feed I had to giggle. My boyfriend of two years drinks Dr. Pepper religiously, SO much that we all tease him about it (in a good natured way). For him Dr. Pepper will probably be a life long love affair. So what better way to say 'I love you' than devote some art to his Dr Pepper affinity. I really enjoy this piece and I hope my boyfriend will too!)

it took a pretty good chunk of time I kept having to rework her face! plus I'm a pretty slow meticulous artist, every stroke has to be just so. :D
