Faded.

Washed out chalking.

Faded chalking

Life was vivid once:

I recognize the Vermeer, but who's that guy supposed to be?

Now that's what I call chalk art -- depicting the defiant indian after the summer cowboy has faded away.

I don't know if seeing it in person has the same effect, but the fading pictures add another dimension to the art itself... the fading memory of deceased loved ones?

Cue the Byrds:

To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

A time to be born, a time to die
A time to plant, a time to reap
A time to kill, a time to heal
A time to laugh, a time to weep

To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

A time to build up, a time to break down
A time to dance, a time to mourn
A time to cast away stones
A time to gather stones together

To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

A time of war, a time of peace
A time of love, a time of hate
A time you may embrace
A time to refrain from embracing

To everything - turn, turn, turn
There is a season - turn, turn, turn
And a time for every purpose under heaven

A time to gain, a time to lose
A time to rend, a time to sew
A time to love, a time to hate
A time of peace, I swear it's not too late!

How did the cowboy disappear and be replaced by the redskin? Perchance a bit of liberal censorship?

I suspect that it may be Geronimo, fabled, ferocious Apache warrior, and long time scourge to the U.S. Army throughout the mid 19th century.

On an unrelated note, were you aware that the term 'faded' means 'wasted', or 'high'?

Kettle: No. That's new to me. I should probably run all my words through the Urban Dictionary before posting!

That guy isn't talented. Real artists paint orange and blue women with six tits.
