Chalking Belmont Shore 2017

October is a busy image-making month, with Halloween and the Belmont Shore chalk art contest. This was my piece for this year’s Belmont Shore event. I based it on an Alphonse Mucha soap ad* from 1898, loosely. Then in the second half the day, I asked anyone who stopped to talk, “What’s your grandmother’s name?” That was the source of all the names written into the image. It was fun to hear their stories! People seemed very excited to see their dear one’s name included. I didn’t win a thing (never do!), but it was a fun day as always.
*Original was very similar to this one:
Alphonse Mucha - Zodiac
