Arielle (#578) 04-26-14

This is my third, and last, stranger from a Madeira Beach trip. Like Jessica (#343), Arielle was making art for kids. But this was painting (not tattoos), and she was in front of a store, outdoors. When she told me her name, I said, “Oh, Ariel, like the mermaid.” She said “No, AriELLE.” Ah, and the accent is on the ELLE, of course.

She is from Minnesota, and came to this area four years ago. Arielle said that she would rather mow grass than shovel snow any day. And then along came a mom with two little ones in tow, in desperate need of some hand art.
