2005 Face and Body Art Convention

  My 5 days in Orlando last weekend was quite an artsy experience. I took a lot of photos so I could come back and share the experience with all of you, the way you share so many of your experiences with me.

     My intentions were to take photos of everything, not to let anything pass me by. But ... the convention, the classes the entire program was so huge and fast paced that I got completely wrapped up in participating in all that was going on around me, sometimes I even forgot to use my camera. I did manage a few good shots though.

 

  

     The program was structured to encourage and inspire the talent and success of many face and body painters from around the globe that are already involved in the industry and are willing to invest a little time and money to improve their art form. 

     My favorite quote from the convention was ... "May you go home with a renewed commitment to elevate your talents to new levels, that together we may beautifully color the world one face at a time."

   

     I have so much to tell you, I don't want to leave anything out but this is my first day off since I've been back. I still have some unpacking and other things I have to get done but I did want to show you a few sample faces, much more to come.

Way Kewl~ Glad you got to see this up close and personal. One of my most favorite thing to do in the entire world because it alters reality and puts us in a peaceful place filled with imagination just for a little while and then photos make it last longer.

"Great photos!  I went and visited your photo album and saw all your pics...  what a neat event to see!  Wish they'd do something like that around here!  But we are in the middle of nowhere, things like that don't get enough peeps to do something like that.  :(  Wonderful stuff!  loved it!"
