That's still really strange to say, but my husband and I moved here in May of 2015 because of his work. And I haven't posted anything in about two years, so here are some of my best designs for 2014 and 2015. I miss all the little faces I painted in Utah, but I'm making lots of friends here in the Summerlin area of Las Vegas and I'm having just as much fun painting faces here as in Kaysville. I realize that I need to do this more consistently to get better at it, but I'm please with much of my work. Also, Wes (husband) bought me an Iwata airbrush and Iwata Ninja compressor, so I can start having fun with that too! (By the way, these are not in order.)
This stitchy skeleton is probably one of the prettiest designs I've painted. I don't know who the original artist is because my client just brought me a photo that she found online. Anyway, I really like how it turned out. October 2015
I face paint the children in my neighborhood on Halloween every year, and this girl wanted to be an escaped prison inmate. I thought they would look like a normal person, but maybe a person who had recently been in a really bad fight. I have to admit that it's a little disturbing to see her look like this, but I guess that means that I did a good job. October 2015
This was at a church party where I had to paint about 5,000,000 kids with super-quick and easy designs. I like this photo because this little guy LOVED how he looked. He didn't want to wash it off that night, and him mom told me that he cried the next day that it was wearing off. October 2015
This young man hired me to paint his face for a party. He had seen a photo this design (on my husband) from last year and wanted the same thing. It's difficult to produce the same detail exactly, but it turned out well, I think. October 2015
This little one wanted to be a Japanese girl. I think her mom might have put a black wig on her later, I hope. It turned out cute, I think. October 2014
When I child asks to be painted as a zombie, I always have to judge just how zombie-ish to make the design - really super gross? Kinda cartoon-ish? Somewhere in between? I chose in between for this one. October 2014
Adorable Iron Man! He didn't really enjoy me pouncing the gold paint on his face, so I didn't want to get too close to his eyes. October 2015
Me. This turned out to be a mistake because my nose started running and I needed to blow my nose - which was difficult to do without messing up the makeup. Next year - no makeup on my nose. October 2015
The rattle was a little too big, and I need to do better detail on the under-side of the snake, but this was another super-fast design at the church.
Okay - my lines are a tad messy and thick, but spider webs are a Halloween classic. And those eyes just make it amazing. October 2015
Storm Trooper. She had a photo. I'm not super pleased with it, but it is the very first storm trooper that I ever painted. October 2015
So those are my favorites. Thanks for reading!
