    Here is some "art" you guys might enjoy getting involved in...what do you think? :)

    2011 North American Body Painting Championship.


    A lot of brightly colored paint was sprayed or brushed on cheeks, lips, chests, backs, arm pits, legs and feet -- and even inside ears.

    Each team of up to three artists -- all required to be at least 21 years of age -- worked on a human volunteer who would be turned into what looked like a fantasy creature.

    Because each human body is unique, that can also influence the end product, according to veteran Canadian artist Yvonne Boyd of British Columbia. "Each person has their own unique energy and shapes. Skin textures pull out different colors in the paint," she said.

    Some of the contestants have years of experience. Others like Dallas resident Brenda Brewer, a face painter on cruise ships, was body painting for the first time. "Its a form of expression but instead of using a canvas you are using a body as a canvas" Brewer says.

    I like the idea of using the human body as a canvas for artistic expression. It isn't as if it is permanent. Sounds fun and intriquing to me. :)

    Absolutely GORGEOUS. I've seen photos of a number of different events related to body painting and I think it's a wonderful new form of expression. Art is one of those things that simply will not allow itself to be limited by anything. It will always grow and find new outlets. Congratulations to these magnificent artists.

    I say this as someone who has worn a form of Divine "body paint" for almost 37 years....

    I have seen several also. Body painting is more popular than I thought. They have several exhibits...which can also include several forms of performance art. Several different body painting competitions,with participants worldwide. I even noticed articles in which some people even make a living at it, and will do body painting at parties and other social functions. I think they did a whole spread in Sports Illustrated using swimsuits that were painted on the models also. I remember seeing a video clip of that photo shoot awhile back on youtube. Anyway...I think it is very creative,and some of the artwork is amazing.

    I used to work in advertising and we used body painting for a campaign. It turned out to be very successful.
