Thanks for being such a great group!!

Post by rhapsdy6 on Mon Oct 29, 2012 11:10 am

I joined this forum two years ago to get tips as a volunteer face painter at my church harvest fest. I just wanted to say thanks for having such an awesome forum here and allowing those of us who aren't professionals but still love to paint faces to be part of the group. Yesterday was our harvest festival and it went so well! I hope to have pictures of some of the faces I painted to share soon (someone else was taking pictures and they haven't gotten the images to me yet!), but in the meantime - here's a picture of me from yesterday before the big event!



Thanks again for being so open!

I am going to ditto what rhapsdy6 said. Not a pro, rarely take pics, but absolutely love the art and the people of this forum. Painted last Friday night for the "Special Needs" Hayride from our church. Thought my hubby was going to get teary over the look of joy on the face of one young lady who has Down's Syndrome. She kept signing "Beautiful" as she looked in the mirror at her Carnival cake butterfly. Totally awesome!

martha, I know what you mean... I have done several events in the last few months where I worked solely with special needs children and adults. By far the most rewarding moments are when they look in the mirror and see that they are just like every other child or adult when face painted! They see the magic... and understand it, too!

and btw - love those stories! I think everyone looks at themselves differently with face paint on! Every kid I painted on Sunday would look in the mirror and just go WOW and walked away like life just got a million times better - the best feeling ever! Then I even had some parents let me paint them and they walked away acting like kids. *laugh*

Ditto again rhapsdy6. Painted a lady in her 40s Friday night in a bright blingy mask with a dolphin one-stroke cake. She is originally from El Salvador and I think she was just as excited as the kids to get her face done. Started sending pics to her friends as soon as I finished. Awesome sense of "giving" from this art. Very Happy

I love this Forum.
I learn so much from these extremely talented, diverse group of marvelous people.
Today,
I learned something very important.
I learned that
the bigger the hat....
the smaller your butt will appear.

I am typing this missive,
during a lull in Hurricane Sandy,
wearing my just purchased sombrero,
and drinking my emergency wine.
