La Strada dell'Arte, day one

Today was a beautiful day in Napa! It was also the first day of the "Italian Street Fair" at Copia (the Center for Wine, Food, and the Arts). Below, Michele and I are filling in our square, which is a recreation of Michelangelo's Cherubs.
The artists all started setting up at 10 AM or earlier today. First, we began by blocking off our area with painter's tape, so that when the masterpiece is finished, it will have a nice clean edge.
Next, we snapped chalk lines onto the pavement, dividing the square into a grid for correct proportion.

Then, we began to fill in the details...
Tomorrow, we'll start again early, and hopefully, by the time I have to leave to go to work, we'll have it all finished so I can get more pictures up to share!
