It's a small world
The Small World of Face Painting and Body Art
Spring time. A time of renewal and new beginnings. It certainly seems that way. The phone is starting to ring. Or buzz, with an incoming text.
As a tribe, face and body painters are a tight knit group. We meet like minded folks at conventions and workshops to better our skills. So, a lot of us know each other, from all over the country and locally where we work. Many of us become great friends. We network and send jobs to each other when we are already booked. It is a great community of giving and artistic people.
I did a job this past Saturday. A small local festival celebrating our furry friends and supporting the local county Humane Society. I set up my trailer, donned my mask and waited. At first it seemed slow but as the day wore on I painted several children.
As more folks saw these colorful smiling faces, more children lined up at my "booth".
It wasn't a tremendously large event, but I was happy, the fundraiser was successful and it was a lovely day. I was surprised later when a friend of mine, also a face painter, picture texted me a little girl painted as a unicorn. I thought she looked familiar, she was all cuteness. My friend was face painting in the next town, not too far from where I was. And we have very similar designs. Her next text was "You did this!"
She said that the unicorn had to "go into a trailer to get painted", and she realized the artist was me! That same little girl had told me that she got an "airbrush face-painting" just the weekend before, and I realized it was another artist friend of mine who did it.
Just thinking of how the three of us touched that child's life made me all warm and fuzzy inside. It really is a small world.
