    hawhaw I have never run so far out of stupendous adjectives to express my awe and delight as happens every time that I look at YOU. YOU, yes YOU. In your myriad guises. You're a fountain of life.

    Still crazy after all these years!
    You are my new favorite adaptation of this classic.

    I agree with Shaima!, you do make your face disappear. You know, every time you tell me, "I'm gonna paint (insert idea here)," and I think, "How's he gonna do that?" you show me and astound me. Most people can't even draw houses and trees on paper while looking at them without making them look like natural disasters. You're painting masterpieces on your face without even seeing what you're doing. Unbelievable!

    I just read kingtriton's comment. You mean you actually paint on YOUR OWN face??? Wha? How?
  • James Kuhn 6y

    Yes! I am a one man show! I do all the painting on my own face. I just look in the mirror and do the best i can!
