For many years now, a team of my friends and I have painted faces at the Valerie Fund Walk/Race in Verona, NJ. It's always a great event, highly attended by good-natured people looking to do a good thing. What's not to love?
It's huge, with lots of attendees, and lots getting painted. So I only took the time to take a few photos.
Finally! A monkey I'm happy with! Monkeys have been kind of the bane of my face painting existence, but I think I've finally hit it. This particular monkey wanted a banana. Her mom would have preferred that she get flowers instead of the monkey, so we compromised with a monkey with flowers in her hair. Everyone was happy!
This kitty had asked for "just a little face paint, like a nose and whiskers," which you know I just can't do. So this was my compromise for a minimalist kitty, and she was ecstatic.
This decisive young lady started off by asking for a dog, and then when I suggested hound or dalmation, asked for a poodle, specifically a pink poodle. I love it!
