I'm entering year number 7 giving away free art in the city of St. Petersburg, FL. I've also left free art in Calgary, Alberta and New York City. Why free art? Because everyone needs a little happy reminder that life is about giving and making other people smile. I always hope that my giving of art will lead to other people making someone else's day special! Today I put out about 20 pieces of spray painted and drawn "Gretchen" flowers. My 23 month old son and I had a lot of fun leaving the free art around the 600 block of Central Avenue.
