Playing with face paints

My girls got bored one day so I decided to try some new designs on them and myself.  Let me know what you think.  Leave a comment if you have a design request.  Thanks.

New Face Painting Designs

Here are a few new face painting designs I did this past weekend at a memorial day party.  I will be adding a new category to my package deals for Half Masks.  It will be the same price as the Deluxe Package but will allow me to paint more faces per hour. 
I am also publishing some of my cheek art designs. They are great for large events or parties with large number of guests.

Table For Sale

I found a used table and decided to paint it to sell.  I like to refurbish things that might have been thrown away otherwise.  This table was in excellent condition.  It has a solid wood trim and a very solid metal pedestal base.  It's very sturdy and doesn't wobble at all. I used a poured resin finish on the top so it will repel any spills that may happen. I painted it for an Alabama VS Auburn divided family.  I know a lot of Alabamian families who are split right down the middle when it comes to who goes for Auburn and who goes for Alabama.  If you are one of those families, this table is for you. Everything you see is hand painted.  These are not decals or stencils.  It can be used for chess, checkers or just playing cards.  Please contact me for a price if you'd like to purchase this table.

Little Girls' Rooms

This is a commission work for two young girls rooms. They wanted "princess" type rooms with a view of a castle and little things to feel as though they live in a castle. After seeing the rooms and talking with the mother we decided to have a painting of a castle on canvas so that it can be taken down and saved after they out-grow it. I also suggested adding a mural of a topiary to coordinate with the paintings. If you'll notice, the castle paintings are almost just alike. There are only a few differences. Also, the mother wanted an element of fun and mystery in the murals of the topiaries. So, I added three hidden inchworms on the topiaries and I hid the girls names somewhere in them as well. Here are the pictures of the paintings.

Preschool Mural

I thought I would share some pictures of my first commercial business mural job with you.
I painted this mural in 2004 at a local day care.  It is operated by Friendship Methodist Church.
They wanted the hall-ways of the day care to be bright, friendly and inviting.
They also use these rooms for Sunday school.
It was quite a challenge to paint on cinder block walls and took a lot more time than I had expected.
But you live and learn, and hopefuly take notes, so you won't make the same mistakes again!
This was an exhausting, yet exciting project to work on.
I think the end results speak for themselves.
The children still enjoy the mural today.

New Canvas Paintings

I have recently decided to paint some of my own works of art. Something that reflects my tastes and inspirations. I've been painting for others for so long I haven't had a chance to test the waters of my own "style". I have so many ideas and passions that it's overwhelming. I'd like to experiment with abstract art even though I'm drawn to painting realism. By doing this I hope to find a better understanding of what my true style is. Once I've found my niche I hope to start a new collection of canvas paintings that I can someday put in a show. Wish me luck.

Here are a few of my new paintings that I painted just for fun. The abstract reflects my love of peacocks and the color turquoise. I used three different metallic colors; gold, siver and copper. The picture is with a flash to reflect the metallics.

The beach picture is from a photograph I took while on a trip with my husband to the beach near Eglin Airforce base.

The fairy painting was just for fun because I love tinker bell and Disney.
