This is interesting

Posted Feb 2015

This is interesting. It's what it's about. How people feel in the moment.

Sometimes they arrive at Parties nervous, self-conscious. My first view of them might look something like This. I feel like they're covering up their naturally happy hopeful hearts:

I try to make them feel Welcome. They start to warm up. I show them what I drew, and then

WOW! You can see by their Reactions that this Party has just become Better. This is now a Great Party!

I feel so grateful to be able to see what my Caricatures actually Do. It's more than just a drawing. It's encouraging Joy .

Encouraging Joy. Even the word is interesting. The word Courage is in Encourage. It takes Courage to let yourself show. It takes Courage to let go and EnJoy. And of course, it takes Courage to be an Artist. A Party Artist.

Guests can't keep up their defenses when they see My Artwork

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.

I Think I Did a Good Job ~

Posted Sep 2014

I Think I Did a Good Job ~ But how am I to know? Especially when the guests come to me already Face-Painted (by someone else), and I have to try to figure out what they look like underneath it.

I do Face Painting as well as Caricatures, but THIS IS NOT MY FACE PAINTING. IT'S ONLY MY CARICATURES. If I had been intrigued by the other Artist's #facepainting, I might have chosen to incorporate it into my Caricature. But since this is so not my style of face-painting, I tried to see through it. You can see Samples of My Face Painting at facepaintingexpress.blogspot.com

The reactions to my Caricatures felt like I hit the nail on the head. Even the last picture here in which I drew the mustaches on the ladies because they requested that I do so. Just look at the #Fun everyone was having when they saw their #Party Caricatures!

Family Harmony

Posted Aug 2014

Look at the unique Reaction that this Family had when they saw the Caricature that I drew. Most intriguing ~ It felt like they were Dancing without Music. Perfectly in sync with each other.

I caught it a little bit in these Photos. You can see how their arms are In at the same moment, and their arms spread Out at the same moment. Done naturally. As though there was one brain affecting both sets of arms
