If you're in Seattle this summer, grab a friend by the hand and stop by to see her exquisite work. However, if you're not able to make a personal visit you can see some of her other pieces here.

Girl with a Pearl Earring
I watched as artist Gabrielle Abbott created a chalk painting interpretation of Vermeer's "Girl with a Pearl Earring" in Westlake Park yesterday afternoon. An internationally recognized "Madonnara" or street painter, Gabrielle has been hired by the Seattle Parks Department's "Street Busker Program" to create her chalk art on the pavement of Westlake Park throughout the summer of 2010. Gabrielle will be creating new chalk art pieces in the park every weekend (weather permitting) until the end of September 2010.
