1. Can you describe the image that was painted on you during your body painting session with Mark Greenawalt?

Of course!! Good ol' Texas pride ~ the TEXAS FLAG!

2. How did you first hear about Mark Greenawalt's body painting artform and how did you get involved?

Mark and I met in Nashville about 5 years ago.  He and I wrote a couple of songs together and he played guitar and sang in my band.  It took him a while to talk me into doing any paintings.  I'm still not as "nekid" (to quote one of the other models) as some, but my father-in-law still told me to put some clothes on...

 3. Was this your first experience at being body painted?  If not describe previous sessions.

Yup.  Very interesting.  I think the hardest part was the photo shoot.  Some of the people I was facing toward got a good view as they were driving by...

 4. What were your reasons for modeling for a body painting session with Mark Greenawalt?

He's a friend and I thought it'd be interesting.  I also wanted some interesting shots for my promo pics.

 5. Do you have previous modeling experience?  If so, please list any highlights.

Yeah, but nothing great.  I was in the CHUCK WAGON AND THE WHEELS video last the stands cheering, right above the guy singing.

 6. What does it feel like to get painted?

Very cold spray, but kinda tickly.

 7. What advice would you give another model who is considering being bodypainted by Mark Greenawalt?

Put your modesty aside and just do it.  It's much easier that way!

 8. What were the reactions of people that saw your images (friends, relatives, significant others, etc.)?

Like I said..."Put some clothes on! You're nekid!" - my father-in-law
"Those are...nice" - my mom
"What the hell are these?!" - my sister
Just think what they would have said had I done my front!  HA!

 9. Which of Mark's bodypaintings is your favorite (besides your own, of course)?

I think the "piano keys" is awesome! 

 10. Would you consider being painted again by Mark Greenawalt?

I think so...

 11. If you were to be painted again, what type of image would you like to try?

No clue...maybe something with flowers.

 12. Describe the atmosphere of the session (relaxed, awkward, rushed, professional, etc.).

A little awkward at first, but only because I'm friends with Mark. Isn't that strange? Should it be easier to do stuff like that with a stranger? Hmmm...  But mark was very professional and made me more comfortable as we went on.

 13. Did you feel or seem like you were wearing clothes once you were painted?

That doesn't really apply to my painting.

 14. Where did you get painted and where did you do the photoshoot?

I got painted in Mark's garage, then we drove to a reserve park in the Phoenix area to do the shoot. We did shoot a couple in front of his house.

 15. Looking back, what was your favorite part of getting body painted?

Being painted.  I like that tickly feeling. 

 16. Looking back, what was your least favorite part of getting body painted?

Being topless in front of strangers, particularly the family that pulled up at the horse stable.

 17. Do you associate body painting more with art or with porn? 

Art! If it's done right, it's pure art.

 18. What celebrity would you like to see body painted and why?

Matthew McConaughey. Mmm Mmm.

 19. How easy did the paint come off?

Jumped in the shower and off it came...

20. What comments do you have about body painter Mark Greenawalt (be careful, he may quote you on this)?

I think Mark is incredibly talented! He's definitely a right-brained kind of guy, with left brained sensibility.
