Florida Artists Complete Huge Iconic Painting in Chalk at the Sarasota Chalk Festival on November 16 & 17, 2013
The theme: the 2013 festival in Sarasota was Legacy of Valor - honoring veterans and their service.
The goal: to bring together a team of award winning Florida chalk artists to bring the iconic painting “George Washington Crossing the Delaware” to life on the pavement at this international chalk festival honoring veterans. Team George was born.
We decided we were either going to go big or go home. And we went HUGE - 30’ x 20’!
This work was all chalk. We used a base of tempera and water for the white, but everything else was chalk on the street. Most of the other art that you see at this size is either paint or a combination of paint and chalk. Chalk is more labor intensive, but the result is much more spectacular.
