2013 Palo Alto Festival of the Arts, Day 2

It is STILL summer, YAY!

And self caught the tail-end of the Palo Alto Festival of the Arts & Crafts, Double YAY!

And she saw the man who made those incredible spinning glass mobiles — he was loading them into a van, helped by his young son.  Self went up close and took these photographs:

These glass sculptures spin, mounted on a metal base.

Another view of the fantastic, whimsical spinning glass art (while waiting to be loaded back onto a van at the close of the festival)

A big draw, of course, are the chalk paintings.  But for $5, anyone could fill in a little square with their own chalk art.  And here were some of the charming, spontaneous little artwork, most executed by children:

Self loved that she could see the street through these drawings.

Stay tuned, dear blog readers.  Stay tuned.
