Chalk On The Water in Reston, VA

Hi everyone, Steve Knots here.

Welcome to all the new visitors who we met over the weekend!  I do chalk art as a side project when I have some down time between performing music, working as a sound engineer, and setting up solar-powered events in the Pittsburgh area.

I came down this weekend to visit family and be a part of Chalk on the Water at the Lake Anne Plaza in Reston,  VA.  Since I work in the circular format, I decided not to enter the competition for prize money, and instead did this piece as a donation to the festival.

I’ve been planning this piece for a while now and I was very happy it worked so well.  It symbolizes Earth with all the world’s people around it, connected by a thin blue line.

My favorite moments were outlining the very pregnant Brenda (the audience loved this),  doing “exploding hair” outlines with the girl scouts, and becoming a many-armed octopus.

Thank you Sue for the balcony view!  We saw some really talented artists doing great work around us, including the absurdity of the pet cat dressed up in a costume and riding in a “Pink Cat-illac.”

HERE are the drone pics from overhead, thanks to Modern Reston and Alejo Pesce of Flutterphoto.


In the evening Melissa and Jason at the new Lake Anne Brew House gave us a little preview of their brewery, reviving us with cold watermelon and A/C.  We’re very excited to support them when they open, and apparently so are many curious locals who stopped to ask for beer.

Finally, a plug for my fundraiser:  I’m doing chalk art and other exciting things as part of a crowdfunding project to raise money for a trip to Croatia, where I will play music at Goulash Disko Festival next month.

Please visit my fundraiser page HERE and take a look at the Art and music you can receive as gifts when you donate.

Thank you to everyone who was involved in making this happen, we had a great time!
