It was bustling this morning as I arrived at Market Square and Krutch Park to join the Knoxville Area Photographers Meetup Group http://www.meetup.com/knoxvilleareaphotographers/ which I am now a member. For it's seventh year, artists, as part of the Dogwood Arts, have been gathering when the sun rises to begin the street painting festival. Everywhere you looked, people where sitting on the ground, covered in chalk. Artist of all ages would work on their canvas (the sidewalk) for a while, then stand to stretch and maybe even take a moment to chat with some passerby's. They had eight hours to complete their masterpiece before the winner was announced. This would be the hard part. Which one would you choose? They are all so amazing!
