|This was a lovely lady from Boston who wanted her silhouette done at Spencer-Peirce-Little Farm's Harvest Music Fest.|
The first thing I discovered when I got set up, was that I had no business cards! I knew already that I had run out of silhouette business cards, but I thought I had brought enough of my caricaturing cards with me, but no! So in between customers I measured out and cut up some paper, and hand-made my own business cards, with tiny silhouettes on them! I had plenty of paper and my trusty and sharp silhouette sissors with me. People seemed to like them and didn't care that they weren't printed!
Another funny thing happened at this festival that's never happened before! A woman came over and wanted her little boys' silhouette done, and then her husband came over and she walked away.
When I was done the husband took the silhouette, thanked me and walked away before I realized that they hadn't paid me. I looked for them but they were lost in the crowd! Oh well! I just kept on cutting silhouettes. What could I do? I couldn't picture myself running after them saying "You didn't pay me, so pay up!"
The next couple that came had me do all three of their children and wanted the extras as well. They then paid me and as I was still finishing up they walked away saying they would pick them up later. Well, they didn't come back, and they didn't come back! I kept watching for them, but didn't see them again. And I thought "oh well. this makes up for the people that didn't pay! Finally at the very end just as I was beginning to pack up they came back and got their silhouettes! I was so glad they came back.
I did so many silhouettes I was too busy to take many pictures. I did two silhouettes of dogs and they sat not perfectly still, but did better than most dogs! I always do two silhouettes at a time and if no one wants the extra one I can keep it as a sample! A lot of people bought the extras this time but I do have these two!
