The Final Canvasses

Today I'm finishing off my series from Glowfair, starting with this finished canvas done by the participation of passersby. It ended up in the storefront window at Wallack's, which is in the background.


The artists were hard at work at their canvases through the two days. I continued to document their progress until the finished work was done.


In this case, the artist at right was posing with some passersby before his work. I had chatted with him briefly- his work was in effect a double exposure, incorporating a face into a cityscape and creating a dreamlike feel. 


The finished murals were outstanding, and fun to watch the creative process unfold.

  22. Terrific artwork. It's great to see it take shape through your photos. Thanks! (BTW: Have you had any problems leaving comments on my blog? A couple of people (who haven't commented much lately) have mentioned that the comment form doesn't autofill with their information. I assume (and hope) it hasn't been a problem for you, right?)
