Jay Canterbury, pictured to the right with his photography, is here from Florida. He has been traveling around California setting up in various festivals and locations.
Jay's work is beautifully abstract, and yet he focuses on common items; a stop sign, a water tower, the side of a boat. His skillful eye captures fascinating compositions, which I consider quite painterly. Sometimes he has greatly enlarged a small portion of a larger picture to bring attention to its intrinsic splendor. Stop by to see him and take home a piece of his work.
I attended the festival early on Saturday while Burbank on Parade was taking place elsewhere, so the crowds were small and the eight chalk artists were just getting started as you can see a few in the pics below. Fortunately for everyone the weather is perfect after several days of rain. Beautiful downtown Burbank is the place to be!
