Jan Riggins and her 13-year-old daughter Olivia have always loved chalk art. Before the pandemic, they used to partake in sidewalk art competitions, and now they have all the time in the world to polish their skills.
"I’ve been thinking about how we could chalk this little fella out for the last couple of days. I busted out some good pastels to get the fuzzy details right."
"I’ve wanted to do this sea turtle for a while, but we honestly thought it would take too long to do after work. But, we started right at 5:30 and finished at 8, right before sunset!"
"My 13 year old daughter completed the jellyfish by herself today"
"Decided we needed an early Easter present for our neighborhood"
"We did a little mini Baby Yoda tonight. It sure was hot when we started, but was a perfect evening when we finished."
"This time we went to my mother-in-law’s house to chalk out her favorite animal, an elephant!"
"We had another birthday in the neighborhood today, so I headed over after work to leave a little present! It was cold, so I didn’t do anything complicated. I love my neighborhood!!!"
"Waving goodbye to the sea life theme! We wanted to get in one more little creature...now we need to think of what to do for Earth Day!"
"I did some solo chalking today. I missed my partner in crime...but I did have fun doing this as a photo op for a local church. I love all the winged creatures!"
"My driveway was particularly warm and toasty as I was working on this...but as always, it was so relaxing and the perfect way to spend the evening. I really have about run out of room at this point."
"A little boy down the street was sad about not having a party for his birthday, so Olivia and I headed over early this morning to chalk out Mr Potato Head! It’s going to rain later, so we opted for the porch."
"Thought I would show some of the pretty old pastels I’ve been using. I inherited them from my grandmother. They had been in a box for years. I love using them to share these pieces with my neighborhood!"
"Come at me, bro! Sometimes you just need to chalk out a defiant crawfish. I felt better after I finished this...not sure what that says about my mood tonight."
"Remember the good ol’ days (last year) when we could do things like a spoon-and-egg race? I guess we can always pretend..."
"Who knows if anyone else in my neighborhood will like this, but I do!"
