The image for this piece has been baking in my head for many, many years. I’ve tried to bring it out several times, most infamously as a carved wooden sculpture in college (note: not a sculptor), but this time it emerged kinda on its own and brought me along for the ride. Definitely inspired by the season and the blustery weather, I opted to not fight the blowing leaves and just incorporate them into the composition (and, apparently, my hair…).
Thanks, once again, to the wonderful @shortnorthartsdistrict for inviting me out to the gallery hop in a month that rarely sees outdoor chalk art. Special thanks to @celestecreateddiamonds for allowing me to chalksling in front of their store. And thanks to everyone who stopped to chat and pass along their feedback.
