This past year I kinda-sorta took a break. I was at a point where I didn't know if I wanted to continue face painting and took only a handful of jobs.
After the break and much prayer, I decided to continue painting as I do love art work. Thank you for your patience as I was in the middle of...well, I'll let you know in a minute.
Any how, I did paint a little throughout the past year.
I painted a few friend's faces like the "Day of the Dead" painting below.
I also painted for some family and friend's where I came up with my own version of an owl painting I saw online. It wasn't as complicated (at least for me) as the original one I tried painting at Border Town Days- earlier in the year. What do you all think of it?
This painting (below) was copied from an online picture and it came out beautiful. I sometimes get nervous painting a new design when I'm copying someone else's idea because I don't know if it will come out as well as theirs. Also, I will try to put the original source in my future posts so in case you're wondering where I get my inspirations from, you'll be in the know how. Plus, to give them (originator) their proper credit due. :)
I was being silly one night and wanted to paint myself...well, don't let it scare you too much...
As the title of the post says, I am taking bookings for this year. I did take a break as I was overwhelmed with the many changes that were happening in my life. I had to take time out to pray and seek direction from the Almighty God. I truly feel He led me to face painting as I never pictured myself doing so. Face painting was always a "That's a professional person's job" idea that I didn't myself as.
Growing up, I was always asked when someone saw my drawings or other type of artwork, "Are you a professional artist?" I would look at that person with a "Are you crazy?" look and say I wasn't. To be honest, even till this day, I don't see myself as a professional but I do see myself as a talented individual.
So, I hope, with this God-given gift, I will be able to paint a wonderful memory for you and your family for many years to come.
Thanks for stopping by and hope to hear from you soon!
