Day 295 - Great Friday at Cleek Farms!

Other than a little bump in the road yesterday afternoon, I had a great time! Not too busy, as it got cold quick, but it was fun none the less. Here are the photos from yesterday, click on them to enlarge then right click to save.

Until tomorrow, HAPPY PAINTING!

Day 294 - Zombie for School!

I had an appointment at 8AM this morning to turn a beautiful teenage girl into a horrific zombie for a school project she has. She will be singing to songs from Nightmare Before Christmas and then doing the Thriller dance. I hope someone gets a video of her performances and posts them so I can see. But here are some photos of what I did to her. Note: She made her own costume, I just filled in the blanks! I also added decay and black to her teeth and gave her a little of my homemade cherry flavored concentrated blood. All she has to do is just take a little on her finger and stick it in her mouth to make it look bloody!

Until tomorrow, HAPPY PAINTING!

Day 292 - UV Abstract Photo Shoot

I had a long night, but it was fun. Didn't go to bed until 7AM in the morning and my model is not going to be able to come over today since her poor girl is sick, so I am going to wait till tomorrow to post my Week in Review video.

But at least let me show you a few of the over 400 photos I took of the UV painting I did last night.

Day 291 - Cleek Farms?

I am going out to Kingsport, TN this afternoon to see if I can get a gig doing some normal face painting at Cleek Farms. They have some great Autumn Activities going on and I think face painting would be a great addition to it. Wish me luck!
