Day 183 - Jonesborough Days & Gizmo!

Today was really good and we met some old friends and made new new ones! Especially a young girl named Emily Moore, 14 years old and from Grey, TN. She was born with no left arm below the elbow, but she has a unique talent with it. Please watch the video below, as my partner, Aline Backes, painted her arm as a creature of no name. Make sure to watch the whole thing so you can see the cute thing she does with it.

Also we are having a contest to see who can come up with the most original name for her new pet painting. If you have a name, post it in the comments below or on the YouTube page. I don't know what the prize will be, but we will figure out a good one.

Emily is coming back on Sunday to get it painted again and I will have a video of that one too. So make sure you watch the whole video below and pass it around and help make this video go viral.

Until tomorrow, HAPPY PAINTING!

Day 182 - My Shoppimg Experiences

So yesterday, I decided to get an idea from my friends on the Facebook community to see what I should paint myself before going shopping! Some of the suggestions were too far fetched and I was not going to sacrifice my business to do those. Here is the thread of what was said:

Okay, I have to go into town to do some shopping today! Any ideas of what to paint myself as before going?

I decided to opt for the Alien idea as you saw in the video.

I did not get a lot of reaction out of people, because they all know who I am. Next time I will personally go up to people and see what their reactions are and do it like an interview.

I had fun anyways and I hope you enjoyed my long boring video.

Until tomorrow, HAPPY PAINTING!
