April 22nd, 2010 marked the 40th Anniversary of Earth Day and street painting artists Rod Tryon and Anthony Cappetto worked together to create a beautiful 3D street painting, celebrating the day and sharing their work with the people at the Winter Garden of the World Financial Center in New York City.
The 3D street painting measured 15' x 20' and took four days to complete using chalk pastels. Wendy Stum from Blog Now on streetpainting.tv was on hand to talk about the art to people who work in the area, visitors, and school groups stopping by everyday to watch the progress.

Interested onlookers view 'Koi Pond' while the street painters focus on the task ahead - completion of the street painting to share with everyone at the World Financial Center.
When 'Koi Pond' was completed, many people including school groups came by to view the finished work, which was beautiful and refreshing.
