Yeah, I walked into the bank to make a deposit this afternoon, wearing a plastic green flowered Hawaiian lei like this one. I had to laugh; I'd forgotten about it! It was given to me by a boy whose face I painted at a birthday party in his kindergarten class. He was one of the birthday girl's classmates.
The birthday girl herself was the puppy I painted at this party. Her younger sister, my butterfly at that party in March was also in attendance. This time, my birthday girl was a princess, while her little sister went for "butterfly" again.
I didn't take photos, but I had a blast with the class. Most of the boys wanted fire-breathing dragons, though I did have one Spiderman, one Batman, and one boy who went from not wanting to be painted at all to getting a full-face tiger!
The lei came from a magician/balloon twister/comedian who came to entertain the class while I was painting, and I certainly couldn't resist a gift from a cute boy, especially one who was just five!
Tomorrow afternoon, I've got another daytime party; I've been hired by Tribeca Cinemas to paint at a going-away party at their venue. I can't wait!
Off to clean my kit...
