Thank you to Megafunk, the early heads up is greatly appreciated.
Thank you to Mary. The esteem of a profesional of your caliber is especially valued by this self taught artist. It is easy to impress those who don't get what it takes...impressing those in the know is much harder, and felt more keenly.

For models looking for painters...
make sure they use MAKEUP NOT PAINT
make sure they are insured for liability...your skin is your livelihood
make sure they have references
and most of all...
make sure they don't talk you into a "cool" handprint design!!!!!!
