Leftovers

SDP  5-19-11
This is what you'll drive over if you cruise down Pineapple Avenue in Burns Square. Even though the Sarasota Chalk Festival was held here nearly seven months ago, and we've had plenty of hard rain, this piece is still left over. (Click here to see what it looked like the night it was finished.) It was created by a German street artist named Edgar Mueller who is known around the world for creating 3-D pieces. This piece showed a beast bursting through the pavement. It's amazing how much of it you can still see. The artist must have applied some kind of sealer for it to last this long, don't you think?

I think it's brilliant that it's lasting so long.

I would have guessed he just used chalk. Neat that it has remained.

I remember when you photographed the festival. I wished I could have been there to see it all in person. What stands out to me in this photo is the lovely palm tree lined street. It looks so pretty!

I can't believe it's still there!

Kind of hard to imagine it still being here. I wonder if the city fathers (and mothers) are happy with that. They probably expected it would last a week.

I am constantly amazed at how beautiful the world is through your pictures!!
