My painting students know that I draw caricatures at parties. Every now and then one of them hires me to do a family event.  This was Veronica’s daughter’s 17th birthday.  Her passion is theater and her friends are all thespians.  Can you tell?!!

Veronica, you chose the Hawaiian theme…in an attempt to calm them down? Haha.

Thank  you, Veronica.——————————————-

When I draw at parties I always have my little Canon at my side. It handles well and is unobtrusive. When the drawing is finished I turn it around with my right hand for the “victims” to see. The little Canon is in my left hand. I quickly raise it and click the shutter. This maneuver has to go very fast because that precious reaction lasts only a fraction of a second. What makes it precious is that it is uncontrolled. It is, dare I say, a moment of truth. They throw their heads back, they drop their jaws, they howl. When that split-second of truth is over, they collect themselves and make nice for the camera.  Too late, I gotcha!

Here are some examples of the moment of truth from the Wedding in the Park (previous post).

Wedding in the Park

In the park pavilion, actually.  Gotta be rainproof for a wedding! The pavilion was well appointed, but as wedding venues go, this was definitely on the casual side. The bride and groom had upper level positions at the post office. The guests came dressed as they pleased, from casual to glittery.  The important thing was, obviously, that everybody be comfortable, the ultimate goal being enjoyment.  And enjoyment is what I was surrounded by the whole evening.

Thank  you, Samantha and George.
