Northwest Art and Air Festival

We checked out the hot air balloon launches on Friday and Saturday. Last year, we could only make it for the Friday lift off and they didn't launch due to wind conditions. This year, Saturday's wind was pretty mild and the balloons had some great hang time over the field. I was able to take some shots as they lifted off in a tight grouping since the wind wasn't whisking them away.



Chalk Art

I shot some photos at the Corvallis Farmer's Market last weekend. Da Vinci Days had a presence there, promoting the upcoming festival in July and I was asked to cover it. A talented chalk artist drew a geisha to go with this years' transformation theme. I was very impressed as I watched her start with a blank sidewalk and apply all the color and shading you see in the finished image below. The artist's name is Cora Crabtree. You can find more pictures of the artwork taking shape and other shots from the farmer's market on my Flickr photostream.
