Nine Years Ago

Posted Nov 2014

I love my customers. I love my repeat clients. So many interesting people that I can meet in the world.

Here are some pictures taken after I did Face Painting at an 8-year old girl's Party. For a Client who has been hiring me once or twice every year since I met her back when she was first Pregnant with the beautiful girl who just turned 8. Sometimes Caricatures, Sometimes Face Painting.

After the girls were all painted, my client let me walk around her beautiful home so she could show me the Caricatures that were hanging in her husband's office. I had drawn them at her Big Family Reunion when she was Pregnant with the girl who had just turned 8. That was Nine Years Ago.

And here she is today. Standing next to her Caricature from nine years ago. I can still see her resemblance, even though she changed some things like her hairstyle and glasses.

I feel happy to see that my Artwork can become a solid part of people's lives. And I feel blown away when I see it hanging in a home that includes some of the best Artists ever. It felt rude to just keep snapping photos of Everything in the woman's home, so I only asked to photograph this one Keith Haring picture which was just too magnetic for me. It looks like just the right thing to see while we run around all day handling so many different things:

What we see affects how we interpret our situations.

And here are some of the Face Paintings that I did at this 8-year-old Girl's Birthday Party. She arranged for a 'My Little Pony' Theme.

Face-Paint Tiger

Posted Oct 2013

Oh ~ A little comic relief. Here's a photo of me dancing at yesterday's Street Event. The Town of Hempstead Animal Shelter gave me a free spot at the Bully Brigade. (The Bully Brigade had nothing to do with the PTA :-) It was titled to raise awareness about Pit Bulls. (Not bulls, not cows. Pit Bulls are Dogs.)

Anyway, I had the day off, so I went there and sold Face-Painting and Freehand Glitter Tattoos. It was right in my own neighborhood ~ right In Wantagh. Here I am painted as a Tiger, dancing with the lady from Petco ~ I quickly painted her as a Cat.

Caricatures and Face-Painting

Posted Jun 2011

Did you know that I do Face-Painting as well as Caricatures? Well, I do....

Last night I did Face-Painting for the cutest Pre-School Graduation. I arrived early and had some time to play around with some ideas before the event. I came up with a New Idea. Hark! A New Idea!

As of now, I've only done Either Caricatures Or Face-Painting at any one time. Switching Setups back and forth feels crazy. But it could be Fun to try it this new way - the new idea I just came up with. (Stay tuned:-)

I can just Draw the 'face-painting' Onto the caricature. Like this:

Small extra fee because of the extra skills and doubled concentration that this requires.
