I was not sure what this was when I first discovered it.. It was only after the first picture that I realized what it was.. It was a memorial. These are goodbyes written in chalk. I stopped in my tracks and said a silent prayer. I have 2 addl pictures but, have chosen not to share. I am posting this only because it's a message for all. Life can be taken at any moment.. Live, love and never pass on a opportunity to do something nice for someone else.. ️I hope you all are reading my messages.. 1h

jrnpdx My grandson ran through a sidewalk chalk picture, and left this footprint. It pretty much resembles the footprints he leaves in my heart #rowansherab #sidewalkchalk #pdx 1d

penless2 Chalk Piece #313: Waddle-Dee!
I've chalked Kirby several times before, so I figured it was about time to chalk Waddle-Dee, or as I like to call him, "Wads." Also... I WAS FREEZING!!! It was alright at first since the sun was out, but then it got overcast and it became REALLY uncomfortable. I'm grateful it turned out the way it did despite my hands freezing up.

  •   gravitynaut64 If you're drawing, and you get cold, you get really cold. If you're playing guitar and your hands get cold, they lock up, and you can't even move your fingers the right way because you can't even move your hands and then the start shaking... Never try to play guitar when it's cold. That was really off topic. 1d
  •   penless2 @gravitynaut64 That's similar to what happens when you chalk in the cold. Your fingers freeze and lock up and it becomes a pain to do any blending. Luckily I managed. I can't relate to the guitar though. I'm not good with instruments, lol 1d
  •   gravitynaut64 Imagine trying to move all of your fingers really quickly in an attempt to pluck a string in rhythm, while your other hand needs to move across six strings and 12 frets on each string, up and down, and if you don't get it EXACTLY right, you fail and it sounds like poo. It's not actually that hard, unless your hands are cold, then it's actually impossible. Anyway, speaking of blending, I can REALLY see the improvement with the blending since your earlier art. It looks FANTASTIC. 1d
  •   gravitynaut64 Also you could try submitting that really awesome Majora's Mask pixel piece you made a while back to the #GamingJanuary thing. 1d
  •   penless2 @gravitynaut64 Oh man... I could NEVER do that sort of thing with non-frozen fingers, lol. Props to you for being gifted in music And thanks! It took me quite a long time to figure out a good blending technique on concrete but at Piece #264 I finally figured it out. And snap... you're right. I could submit my pixel art. I'm currently updating that Majora's Mask piece though. I took it down off Miiverse because it turned into an argument zone I also took down a lot of other pieces, blocked several people and cleaned some things up. That way if I decide to start posting again I'll have a clean start. 1d
  •   gravitynaut64 To be fair, what I was describing was actually impossible. No professional guitarist in his right mind would EVER play with cold fingers. If you're playing one song in an area that is frigid (which, if you compete, it's happened to you at LEAST once), you dip your hands in warm water and hope that your song is short. Let's just agree that cold=bad no matter what you do. Unless you frozen treats. Or race dog sleds. Or you're a firefighter. Or Mr. Freeze. You get the idea. 😐 Also, smart choice regarding Miiverse. Although I doubt will ever change, on the off-chance you decide to begin posting again, you'll be set. 1d
  •   rachelbellengersartwork @penless2 any advice to improve mine? On my profile (: 1h
  •   penless2 @rachelbellengersartwork If you haven't tried using these already, I suggest you try using hard chalk pastels to help get colors you can't get from normal sidewalk chalk. They work great and a 24-pack is only $8-$10. Other than that you just gotta keep practicing :) 58min
