Photo above is a lovely example of the 3D artist's ability to create realism and the perception of depth. The birds actually seem to be flying out of the painting.

Today I have an appointment with my ophthalmologist for a yearly eye exam. Though the procedure is painless it has that annoying aftermath of leaving me with owl eyes from having had my eyes dilated and of course things like sunlight and any bright light is intolerable. Therefore I decided to post my last photos of the Sarasota annual Chalk Festival, before my appointment and while my eyes are not super sensitive to light.
Photos above and below are truly whimsical. I loved the juxtaposition of having the lion being the psychoanalyst listening intently to his animal tamer patient.
The photo below was an interactive piece where a person can sit within the painting and look as though they are a part of it. Unfortunately there was no one volunteering for the seat of honor when I snapped this picture and just as unfortunately there was a large tripod, with a profession camera mounted to it, that blocked the "sweet spot" for my taking photos. Even from this slightly off center viewing position, one can see how the troup of acrobats appear to stand up and out of an otherwise flat painting
Lastly my favortie, not because it was more creative or bigger, brighter or even better than any of the other works of street chalk art but simply because the bright red nose on the circus clown stood out proud and loud . . . even if I stood slightly off center.
Don't know about you but I'm now in the mood to go see a circus. :D
