Chalk it up, Casey

casey wilkinson chickadee

Hey there, chickadee.

We're happy to announce that we've picked Casey to create the panel for AOA's sponsored entry into the Troy River Street Festival street painting competition.

We really liked Casey's work -- that's one of her prints above (a few more after the jump). And we thought her style would translate well to the sidewalk. Check out her Etsy shop, Lady Sparrowhawk.

Thanks to Pearl, Richard, and Elisa for also sharing your work. We bet you all would have done a good job.

The River Street Festival is June 18 in downtown Troy.

That's awesome. Casey had several nice prints at the Art for ALS auction (I got outbid on the grackle), including a large print of the chickadee heading this post -- you can sort of see it in this photo (I know, I know, you probably read this week's What's Up post already). Just great work, look forward to seeing the chalk drawing.

I just won one of these at the Art for ALS Auction! No, I was not the one who outbid B on the Grackle - I got the Mourning Dove! Cool!

Oh my goodness! I've had a bunch of those prints in my favorites on etsy for a while and never even realized the artist was local! Cooool.

They look great and it is a great event...but I can't be the only one thinking "Put a bird on it", right?

ned,
I have a few ideas roaming around the ol' thinkbox- one of which involves "putting a bird on it"- but I won't give anything away yet. ;)

In hope a lot of people come out and celebrate the Troy River Street Festival. The street painting should rock.

And I love Etsy. Such unique stuff. Will check out Casey's shop!
