Face Painting Fun

Wednesday, October 28th, 2009

Face Painting PhotoThis young girl had her face painted by me at an outdoor summer festival in Fort Collins in 2004.  The location was Old Town and I think the event was called “West Fest”.  For a couple of years I face painted for a professional company called “Merry Makers” who were based out of Greeley, Colorado. They provided all kinds of party fun with balloons and costumed characters.  Although the work was part-time, it took me all over the state of Colorado and I got to meet all kinds of great folks!  I still enjoy face painting for fun and service to local non-profit organizations, ie: Susan’s Legacy here in ABQ, NM and St. Baldrick’s fund raiser in April.  Any excuse to use my art will do and I welcome new challenges as far this goes…no full body painting however, we need to have boundaries, don’t we?

More Chairs for the “Charity Event”…

Catbird SeatThis was my first chair painted for Susan’s Legacy’s “Charity Event” in 2007.  I called it the “Catbird Seat” (for obvious reasons).  The chairs that were donoted for this event all had the same cutout design on the top which made it harder to be unique with each chair – but then beggars can’t be choosers, can they?  My friend, Nancy, asked to see this chair a little closer so I’m hoping that I can make that happen as adminstrator of my own BLOG!  (Thanks for the training, MB.)
