INSPIRATION :: Famous Paintings as Sidewalk Chalk Art

I hardly ever post mobile photographs here — I think low-res images are better suited to Instagram than blogs — but I couldn’t resist sharing this chalk art!

My mind can hardly wrap around such talent.  It’s the transitory nature of this medium that is the most profound to me, I think. The image will only last a short time. The artists know this work is temporary, and yet create greatness anyway.Jack Vetriano - Chalk Art at Downtown Disney in FloridaJack Vetriano - Chalk Art at Downtown Disney in FloridaModa Baiana - Chalk Art at Downtown Disney in FloridaCollie - Chalk Art at Downtown Disney in FloridaDegas - Chalk Art at Downtown Disney in FloridaChalk Art at Downtown Disney in Florida
