For several years now, I've painted with my friend Emilie and several other face painters at the Bergen County Zoo's patron appreciation night; this year it was on Friday, July 31, from 5:30 - 8:30 p.m. They have all sorts of great things set up for the patrons besides face painting.
My first "victim" chose a snail, which I think came out pretty cute, and she was happy.
I had a few tiger requests, of course, several butterflies, and this monster.
Another wanted a snake, and when she saw my finished product, made me feel great with a "You're really good at this!"
We painted our little hearts out. It was, in short, a zoo!
