About 6 or 7 years ago, I face painted at my friend's daughter's 4th birthday. That was early on in my face painting career, when I was much more of a novice and not nearly at the level of quality I am now.
Well today, I got the best compliment based on that party anyway!
I painted this afternoon at the 4th birthday of a young man whose mother and sister attended the party so many years ago. Mom kept me in mind all these years, and called me for this party! As a face painter, I never know who I'm going to see again. It's really great, and a testament to mom's opinion of me.
The funny thing? This was a pirate party and I didn't paint a single pirate! I did, however, forget my camera so I can't show you the tiger, bear, vampire, butterflies, lion, and other critters I did paint.
