Caricatures at a wedding reception in a distillery!

What an unusual, historic venue---a distillery!!! I just hoped I didn't become inebriated from breathing all the whiskey fumes!
This was the view from the entry door, which was up a long flight of steps:
The cocktail hour and meal were held on the second floor; the DJ and dancing were on the third floor 

The guests arrived and I stayed sober ;-)
The bride and groom never got to sit for me, as they were so in demand. It happens! Hopefully I'll do a wedding caricatures from a photo for them.

Got a few pics of some caricatures before their owners retrieved them from the casks! ;-)
Thanks for having me, Craig and Melanie! Best wishes!

Irish Festival Silhouettes

My scissors and I donated time and hand-cut silhouettes to Irish Charities of Maryland at the big festival in Timonium...

Everyone is Irish at an Irish Festival!!! :-)
I tried cutting my first double silhouette:
I think I prefer separate ones. 

My hubby came along for this event, yay!

Welcoming college freshmen with a caricature

It's a big day on campus when all the students move in! Time to celebrate with a party, food, airbrush tattoos, bounces and CARICATURES!

It seemed there were far more girl students enrolled this year... but I did get to draw THIS GUY!

Sweet 16 Silhouettes

Silhouettes make an elegant addition to a young lady's Sweet 16 dinner...
At this particular party, I was seated to the side by the window. Before I cut the birthday girl's silhouette first, to be shown in my little gold frame, my husband was the one on display ;-)
I cut 40 people in two hours (a few were taken home before I got this photo ;-)
What a great party favor for the girls!
There were a lot of snippings to clean up under the table!

Korean 1st Birthday Caricatures!

This beautiful little girl celebrated her 1st birthday in a floaty white dress with butterfly wings...and a caricature! As she was the last one drawn, though, I had to look at a photo on Grandma's phone to get her dress right (she'd been changed into something more comfy by then).
Her family and friends were eager to be caricatured!
Below: Can you tell by these two guys are brothers? I knew by their eyebrows...

Thanks for having me be a part of your family tradition! :-)
