This is where you will find all the different images from my journey. Enjoy!
Head Painting #1 – June 9th, 2019
This is the very first one done. I was riding for The Great Cycle Challenge Canada for Sick Kids Hospital. I had received a jersey from them for fundraising so far,
and my son’s painted my head to match the jersey! It was an awesome kickoff!
This was the second pass at painting my head. At this point it was still by some experiment. We hadn’t started using the spray that helped it last longer on my head.
So, after a few days, the paintings where wearing down on my pillow after sleeping. Still, having fun with the process! Again, this was done by my sons.
Head Painting #3 – JUne 24th, 2019
My youngest was graduating from grade 8 and I wanted to do something special for the event! It was the first time that many of the families were going to see that
I was facing cancer, and didn’t want to detract from the fun of the evening! It was a great way to enjoy the evening! Two friends took on the challenge to create the school logo and text!
Head Painting #4 – June 30th, 2019
Now for painting #4! This time, my youngest worked solo on this. He cut out the shape of the maple leaf out of a new kitchen
sponge and used that to help with the flag. It was a quick and easy one. But got great feed back when we were out and about on Canada Day!
Painting #5 was a whole new process! This time, Nadia, from Hokey Pokey, had offered to give it a go. This was her first time of doing this as well! She came with lot’s of experience having done all of these individual items as part of face painting over the years, but never in a full scene and a scalp. I didn’t know what to expect! And you can tell. The reveal video tells it all, with the ugly cry, the shock, the amazement! This was also where we learned about using the ProLong Spray to help it stay longer. This is where we were able to start getting more than 2 or 3 days out of painting. With some extra effort, we now can get (in most cases) 5 to 7 days out of a painting.
Head Painting #6 – July 7, 2019
This was another of the small group paintings. Susan and Carmen where now joined by Carmen’s daughter Cynthia. It was a fun time by the pool relaxing! They used a skirt pattern and a pillow fabric pattern to help out with this idea!
Head Painting #7 – July 13, 2019
This was probably the least creative for my youngest son. He was sleep deprived and I was dragging him away from prime computer time, so this is what he whipped off quickly for me. Then headed off for another nap and more computer time. It was still cute!
head painting #8 – July 17, 2019
When a group of very special friends gather to learn some techniques on face painting so they can help paint your head… Amazing things happen! Thanks to the team at Hokey Pokey for the magical afternoon!!!
I had 14 friends, including their kids come and learn how do to basic face painting technique so they could get their first shot at trying the process. I went home with a head full of really fun art!
head painting #9 – July 22, 2019
Three friends (Carmen, Cynthia and Susan again) who helped to work together to complete this beautiful butterfly themed head painting! Poolside painting had become it’s own special time in the summer!
