Rose Eye Design
"It is the time you have wasted for your rose that makes your rose so important."
– Antoine de Saint-Exupéry, The Little Prince
Hopefully, my customer didn't think her time was waisted waiting for me to paint these roses. Thanks to a gray, drizzly day, I had a little extra time to take with the handful of customers who came out with umbrellas.
When I have an extra minute, I like to change up some of my usual designs and take special requests. This particular rose eye design probably didn't take much more time than usual, but even an extra minute allows me to slow down and really enjoy the process of face painting. I find that that's the time I get creative and maybe even improve on the original design.
Looks like our Labor Day weekend will be nothing but blue skies until Monday, so it'll be back to speed painting for me!
