Making Moves

This summer has been super busy for me, so I apologize for the gap between posts. Between working at the shop and face painting, most of my down time is spent sleeping, or with family and friends! Its a rainy day today and before I set out to work on some tattoo drawings, I decided to go ahead and do an update. 

The tourist season is almost over, and I have decided that at the end of August, I will no longer be face and body painting as I want to focus primarily on tattoos and expanding my skills in my craft. I have been face painting for about 6 years now, which I can't believe how fast the time has flown by. I have painted at so many amazing events and have met people from all walks of life. I feel truly blessed and grateful that I was able to make a living doing something I absolutely love. Not many people can say that about their jobs. I really didn't think of faceprinting as a job, but that I was making relationships and creating long lasting memories. 

I am often approached by people whom I have painted for years ago and they still have pictures of what I painted for them. Working at the oceanfront for Beachstreet was an amazing experience for me  as I was able to see returning families every year and share in their excitement of getting their face painted. There is no bigger compliment an artist can receive than seeing smiles and happiness from those enjoying your craft. 

Although I will no longer be painting at events or for parties, I do have other friends whom I can refer you to. Also, if you are a fellow artist, I do not mind doing a facepaint workshop or giving tips on being a freelance artist. 

As always, thanks for checking out my blog! Stay tuned for more updates! 

Xoxo, Cecilia
