The 2013 Pasadena Chalk Festival like events of previous years was a huge success.
But the vivid images of the artwork will live in the tens of thousands of images captured on electronic devices, from cameras and smart phones.
Many artist work from printed pieces, but some use their own vivid imaginations and heartfelt compassion for what they feel strong emotions about, including this piece in memoriam of the Sandy Hook tragedy.
And if you liked the art enough to bid on the silent auction pieces then you may have walked away with a gem or two.
I had chance to catch the last few hours of the festival as most of the artists completed their masterpieces. The best viewing in the late afternoon when the shadows are gone and the light is sun is still providing enough light to enjoy the spectacular details of the art.
