Face painting is another form of art I do! Kids love to get their faces painted. I enjoy painting on arms so that kids can see the art too. This little boy loved his T-Rex. And this girl was decked out in cool sugar skull attire and I was so excited to add to the whole look!
It was the first time I joined in with other artists at the Strathearn Art Walk. The Strathearn community is really nice with the event held in a big green space overlooking the river valley and Edmonton's downtown skyline. There were a lot of artists and a wide variety of art for people to enjoy viewing the artist's creations. There was a beer garden, kid's crafts, food and music. I saw artists I knew and met a few more. It's hard when you have your own tent set up, to be able to get away to look around. After all, if I wasn't in my tent I couldn't do any caricatures. I also displayed some of my paintings. I haven't had much free time to paint lately which kind of frustrates me ... I'd really love more hours in the day! I look forward to next year's Strathearn Art Walk.
Here are some of the people I drew ....

Caricatures by Edmonton Artist Laurel Hawkswell
A very fancy wedding with lots of things happening for their guests: dancers, photo booth and caricature artists! At big events it's often good to hire more than one of us to draw. A lot of the kids were excited to have their caricature done. The boys were sharp in their dress clothes but oh how I loved seeing all the girls in their beautiful saris! The colours, the details .... the colours! (yes I meant to write that twice).
I was surprised to get a phone call today from a girl that I'd drawn, thanking me for the caricature and saying how much she loved it and that she was going to frame it. I thought that was so sweet and such a nice thing to do.
