Who's the Artist ?

Posted Mar 2015

I feel frustrated about Caricaturing people After they are Face Painted. Sometimes it's really hard to see what they look like underneath the transformative power of a good face painting. Other times I just would not want there to be any confusion about who the Face Painting Artist is.

I am a Face Painter as well as a Caricaturist. You can see Samples of my Face Painting at facepaintingexpress.blogspot.com

But I usually do only one or the other Activity at an event. And if I am hired to do Both, I arrange the time so I would finish Caricaturing before I start Face Painting.

But here are a few examples of what happens when I am Caricaturing at the same time that someone else is Face-Painting. I feel like I was successful seeing through this Simple Face Painting. But I was Not the Face Painter in this case. I would never paint like that.

Just for fun, I tried to quickly cover up the Face Painting in the reference before posting this Caricature. Egads! Ouch.

and the day goes on......

Eyelashes

Posted Feb 2015

I was a Guest at a Friend's Party. Several of us were Professional Entertainers, so we were 'on the spot'. I quickly drew her Caricature on the back of the placemat in the dark with the one marker that I had in my pocketbook. Hmmmm..... maybe I should have added more Eyelashes

Yellow Lemons

Posted Feb 2015

perhaps our lemon tree is rootbound?

i feel exCIted with the Yellow, but im concerned about the dry leaves. Falling off. Will transplant it if I can find soil. I hope the new planter will fit on a rolling dolly. It's hard to pick up a Tree.

Waterproof Mittens

Posted Feb 2015

I don't like iphone-gloves. I feel Colder in the spots where they are iphone-sensitive than if I wasn't wearing any gloves at all. So I cut open one fingertip from a pair of knit gloves, and I've been wearing them under knit mittens that can flap-up to expose the finger when I have to iphone........ But I couldn't find flap-up mittens that were Waterproof. For shoveling snow. So I asked my husband to wrap duck-tape around my knit mitten ~ something that I saw on the boy who pumps my gas. It worked great!
