This year the FPBA Convention has moved right here to the Midwest! Karen, the owner who lives here in St. Louis decided it was time to bring it back here to her home town. In years past it has been hosted in Orlando and Las Vegas. Fine by me! I am happy to have it here, and be brought in as the event’s photographer. I will be there photographing the works and labors of many of the attending artists there.
The event will feature face painters, body painters, and balloon twisters, with classes being held and many masters of the crafts will be on hand. I have now been to the Fabaic Convention down in Ft. Lauderdale twice now (as a painter ) and have met many of the instructors and I can attest that the classes are well worth attending! Who knows, I may even get the chance to pull out my own paints and throw down some works. Classes will be held November 10th through the 15th. And it’s still not too late to register!!
Semi quietly in the background of being a photographer I have been honing my skills as an artist. I will share with you a piece that I got to paint, shoot, and edit. Enjoy! As an artist I can tell you there is no greater feeling of accomplishment than when you can start with a vision, and take it all the way through to the end result.
