Hello and happy 2014! It’s been a slow beginning to the year for me painting wise, but I’ve now made up for that by spending the last 4 days at a Face Painting Convention! Who knew face painters had conventions, right? Well this was my third convention since I started painting in 2010 and they are super fun! Exhausting, but also challenging and exciting. The best thing about conventions is learning a whole new bag of tricks! I now have alot of things to practice, as well as some great new designs. I can’t wait to show you how it all turns out!
Here are the paintings I got to do at the convention. I tried to challenge myself and try some new things out. Hopefully these new skills turn into great new paintings to offer my clients!
What do you think?
My Dark Moon Man
I learned some amazing new tricks with split cakes and bought some new colors… I can’t wait to turn this into a birthday party design!
This was a challenge in a class… a Tiger Sugar Skull. I LOVE how those colors pop!
And this is for everyone who always asks how I paint myself… TA DA! Here I am painting myself… no big mystery, it’s just me, a paint brush and a mirror. 🙂
Check out my Body Painting page to see the cool design I did for that!
I love painting designs that “talk”! Here is a great one, that I just realized I never posted here or put in my book! I’ll have to make a post one day of all my talking animals for you to see… they are super fun!
I promise I will post new pics of actual face paintings soon, but I’m just SO EXCITED about my painted Elephant! Today was the grand opening of the African Elephant Crossing exhibit at the Cleveland Zoo, and the first time I got to see my Tallulah out in her new home… She is right in front of the ticket booth! It was so fun to watch kids climb all over her and how excited they were to get their picture taken with her! One nice mommy let me take a photo of her adorable kids to post here. Enjoy!!
I am happy to announce that I am finally done painting Tallulah! She is sponsored by B.A. Sweetie Candy Company, and will be on display starting this week at the Cleveland Zoo for the new Elephant Crossing exhibit. So when you go to the zoo this summer, make sure you say hi to her!
Hello friends, meet my newest model, Tallulah! She is a 4′ tall Elephant that will be on display at the Cleveland Metroparks Zoos new Elephant Crossing exhibit in May. Her sponsor B.A. Sweetie Candy Company, has asked ME to paint her! I will be working on her over the next few weeks at Sweeties during the stores open hours, so stop in and check out the progress! If you ever needed a reason to take a trip a candy store this is a good excuse. 🙂 Sweeties is located at 7480 Brookpark Road, Cleveland, Ohio 44129. Phone 216.739.2244
