Pavement Art In Southbank


Pavement Art Posted by Picasa

I was very happy to spend some time with Diana, the artist who drew this picture on the pavement. Life on the street, and drawing can be fun, but at the same time, can be tough and competitive too. Unfortunately when you live the life of a busker you need to go busking for many long hours to make ends meet. May God bless her and many other artists in the area.

What is a busker? You can earn money doing that? Who gives the money? Is it like donation from passerbyers or is a "busker" hired to do the work? Do people walk around the art or over it? Do the cones manage to stay there long? BTW, I don't know anything about American football either. Great Sermon notes. That is your father who authored that? How cool. He must be so proud of you. Yes, I would love to send you a Christmas booklet. I'm not ready to send them out yet. What is the best way to exchange address info? Phil 4:6-7 is great. It even changes personalities.

Hi Andrea, a busker is someone who entertains people for money in public places (as by drawing, singing or dancing etc). People apparently can earn money doing that, but it's certainly not easy. You have to be extremely talented and need to work long hours. Yes the money are donated by passerbyers to the artists. They normally have a 'container' of some sort to collect the money.

Generally people walk around the art, although some naughty kids do walk over it, and in which case the artists will politely tell them not to do. The cones are not always there though.

American football seems to be quite difficult to play, though I think Aussie Rule (Australian football) is harder and more 'violent'. Even though I don't understand sports, the film inspired me nonetheness :)

The sermon was from one of my mentors, whom I affectionately call papa. He is not actually my father, but we love each other very much =) He is 91 years old now (by the way, he has served the Lord for 70 years), and can still preach without notes. I so admire and adore him.

Woule be sooo happy to receive your Christmas booklet. The songs sound very cool! My email address is kitping@optusnet.com.au
If you email me, I can send you my address.

I agree that Phil 4:6-7 can transform our personalities.

Thanks a lot for being such a wonderful and inspiring blogger friend.
