was so generous to have a satellite overhead to take a photograph of our street painting on Friday, Dec. 4, 2009. It’s not as easy to see as our last year’s Guinness World Record which took us two weeks to create and we had some really nice negative space covered that help the visuals. But if you look closely you can see the plant leaf and vine and drop shadow.

We had two days of prep on this site. I can tell by the photo that it was taken early on Friday. There is no color in the leaves. On Sat. we ran out of space to draw on and had to grow our piece adding another 13 large shapes to the kids and community to use. In all we had approx. 1,500 involved over two days – pretty cool!

Here is the original sketch, and what it looked like being worked on.

Thank you IARTES (Instituto de las Artes de la Imagen y el Espacio) and the Ministerio del Poder Popular para la Cultura for bringing us down to South America!

And thank you everyone who recently donated to the project supplying the chalk to draw with!
