Last weekend we had the I Madonnari going on in Santa Barbara.  This is an Italian street painting festival, where local artists do different chalk drawings.  The festival is sponsored by local businesses.  It was held at the Santa Barbara Mission.  The Mission alone is a gorgeous site, and then, add all of these amazing artists’ drawings, and it was beautiful.  I got to go with my husband, which was a bonus, because as I’ve mentioned before, I never get to see him, due to his work.  I love when we get to spend days and nights together.  He’s my best friend.  Love you, husband.

Hope everyone had a lovely weekend!  Oh…I snapped a picture of the view we had from the Mission.  Santa Barbara, we sure love your beauty.

    I Madonnari is amazing. Every year for the Memorial Day weekend we can walk from our house and experience this festive event. The imagination and skill these artists exhibit with simple pieces of chalk are truly works of art.
