Chalk Day at Five Dock – Day 2

May 29, 2015

The morning was damp and foreboding, anticipating a wash out from yesterdays efforts. Arriving to wet streets didn’t deter me, as I approached the lane-way, I could not see anything from the day before. Rather than worry about having to draw it all over again, I surveyed the pavement and I could see that there were still stains from my previous work, this gave me encouragement, so I tentatively started drawing on any dry section I could find.

The concrete was finally dry by about midday. This fired me up to complete as much as I could, even though the clouds were lingering at the days end. I was so hoping to get many more flowers and birds into the scene, but, who knows what sort of miracle comes from your work when the residence are cheering you along. I must say, I have been very much appreciated by the locals at Five Dock, they have made me very welcome.

I was greeted by one gentleman who was 89, he gave me much praise, he has been a residence for most of his life, I thank him for his kind words. The many words of encouragement, kept the chalk scratching hard and progress was swift, I am looking forward to tomorrow to finalize to what has become a very great experience from a very positive community. Regards Arto.
