I have blogged a time or two (actually several) about my love for art. I have come clean, and admitted to being an art geek (more than once). One such medium I enjoy is chalk art.
|Celebrating the New Year!|
It's no secret that I love to run (and I love my pretty running shoes).
I wanted to be a gal whose running page encompassed all runners, not just the "fast" runners.
I have used my driveway as a temporary canvas for various holidays...
St. Patrick's Day
The Fourth of July
I even have created Easter eggs.....with subtle hints as to what was to come....
|I had just committed to running my second marathon (IMT Des Moines Marathon 2014)!|
|Look closely, there's a "new" goal race in the works|
Shortly after starting my blog and Facebook page, a bunch of fellow running buddies convinced me to register and train for my first marathon (Quad Cities Marathon, 2013)
This past summer I ran my first Ultra...and felt the need to psyche myself up for the experience
I have used my chalk art to document long training runs
|The first time I ran farther than a half marathon was cause for celebrating|
I even traveled to the Windy City in 2014, and ran the Rock'n Roll Remix Challenge with one of my runner friends, Penny
|My rendition of a couple Chicago landmarks|
I live in Iowa, so I get to experience the change of seasons....
And I have used my chalk art to pay tribute to tragedy...
|Boston Marathon 2013|
|And, most recently, Paris|
Any other art geeks out there?
You are so creative! I love it!ReplyDelete
thank you!! (It keeps me from doing boring stuff...like cleaning LOL)Delete
I adore your driveway art!ReplyDelete
I love your works of art! My husband's family is very artistic and one of kids has the gene. But me? No. I am content to look at your beautiful creations!ReplyDelete
You probably have more talent than you're aware of....we're our own worst critics #truthDelete
I love your art! Such a great way to express yourself! Makes me wish I had a driveway :)ReplyDelete
ha! We have a huge circular driveway, it's fun to play with chalk on it but shoveling/blowing snow is another story ;-)Delete
what a great idea!!ReplyDelete
thank you !! ;-)Delete
Love, love, love this! Kim you have such a unique talent in a world with so many bloggers fighting to be different, you my friend are right on track! I love all your creations in chalk and please continue it! :)ReplyDelete
Of course, I'll continue.....if you insist... ;-)Delete
I love all of your art work!! I am not artistic in that way at all...LOL! I do create beautiful food though! HEHE!ReplyDelete
ha! YES, your food creations look amazing ;-)Delete
I think your sidewalk chalk art is awesome and so fun! What a great way to be able to constantly celebrate your successes or upcoming events and get to do it again the nexy/day week when the want arises! Love it!!!!ReplyDelete
I love coloring sidwalks with my nieces and nephews, I never thought of doing it on my own for the sake of fun, you may have just inspired me to buy a bucket of fun chalk for my own... Well next spring when the sidewalks are snow free again!
Oh, and your awesome at this, what a cool talent!!!!
Thanks! It's a fun, creative little twist to add to my running "hobby." It keeps me out of trouble ;-)Delete
I love everything about your sidewalk chalk art!!ReplyDelete
Thanks!! It keeps me from cleaning my house.... ;-)Delete
love it! I am not that talented but I appreciate those who are. I saw some beautiful sidewalk chalk art that would blow you away when I was in Italy : )ReplyDelete
Sidewalk chalk art is fun, but I have to make sure to capture the image before it rains. Each "work" is short-lived, but that makes me appreciate them that much moreDelete
Love it! What a great idea!ReplyDelete
Thank you! It's a fun way to document my journey....and other happenings ;-)Delete
This is so cool! I love the artwork...you are pretty talented :)ReplyDelete
Thanks!! We all have our own things....I can't run super fast, and I cannot sing to save my life...but give me some art supplies, and I'm a happy gal ;-)Delete
1000?? What are you celebrating in the last photo?ReplyDelete
I love this idea! It's so cute! I'm not really talented in many things, to be honest I haven't really found my thing! I have found no art skills or athletic skills. I think drawing and running can be very therapeutic so I'm glad to see you have both! Looking forward to checking out what other great chalk art creations you make!
thanks ;-) The 1000 is from the summer of 2013, when my Facebook page reached the milestone of having 1000 followers ;-) I bet you have "a thing," you just haven't realized it...something you have a passion for that you have always loved doing as a child (and continue to have a love for now). Dig deep---I bet you'll find it!Delete
