Backyard Party

Posted Aug 2011

Nice and comfortable. This client had a Child's Party in her backyard. I was on a comfortable, closed in porch. There was a bouncy-house outside. My pictures were hung all together on a clothes-line until the guests were ready to leave:

Sometimes I really feel like I'm invited to join right in to a close group of friends and family.

Christie Brinkley

Posted Aug 2011

Did you know that I'm also a Face-Painter? I did a Face-Painting event hosted by Christie Brinkley today. It reminded me of the section of this Caricature blog in which I tell you about the Celebrities I work for. I caught this one, and it reminded me that I think I forgot to mention - and it was over a year ago that I worked for him - that I had drawn Caricatures at an event hosted by Montel Williams also. I try to remember to blog, but so much is always going on.

Still, I consider myself quite fortunate that my Artwork brings me in person to some people who seem Larger than Life - brings me into situations in which I can meet, (even if only briefly), the SuperStars. I am impressed that they really are Super Stars for a reason. There really is a Quality something about them that feels impressive. Even though both Christie Brinkley and Montel Williams were very comfortable people.

You can read more about today's experience at my face-painting blog: facepaintingexpress.blogspot.com

Why I was reminded of the Montel Williams event was because they were both Celebrities, and they were both Fundraising Events. Made me feel like the Big People have Big Hearts. They get involved in important causes. And it made me realize that I too could be a 'Big Person'. My jobs get me involved in the same events as the Super Stars. I could help them make a positive difference in people's lives. Party and Event Entertainment ~ This is what I can do.

This day I was hired to work at a Fundraiser to help find a cure for Breast Cancer. It was setting up for the big day on Sunday - culminating in Ellen's Run for the Ellen P Hermanson Foundation.

Interpretation

Posted Aug 2011

Line-work. Interpretation.

I was warming-up in the car before going in to a gig. Drew the following two pictures based on the same photo. Intrigued me that the same picture, which could be described as:

wide close-set eyes big long nose long chin prominent cheeks long eye-lashes

could each look so different.

I hope I remember this when I look at MySelf in the mirror.
