I've been looking forward to this year's Sarasota Chalk Festival since my first Festival experience last year. The creativity of these artists -- who travel from around the world to participate -- is phenomenal. And this year I think I did it the "right" way by attending on both Friday and Sunday.

California artist Lori Escalera is a Festival regular who says the end product far outweighs the aches and pains. Despite two hip replacements, Ms. Escalera continues to participate in chalk festivals around the world. She thrives on sharing both her completed art and her creative process with festivalgoers. Plus, she said, creating in the midst of an artistic community is a nice change of pace from the solitary life of a studio artist.
