As I look at these before and after drawings, I am reminded of the power of “a million dollar smile.”
A smile makes you smile. A smile is warmth and it lights you up and catches you in its curves.
KB, the artist who made this wonderful intuitive sketch left the studio smiling herself.
KB got it: the power of the smile. How a flick of a crayon in an instant can change the atmosphere, and make worries disappear. The artist’s, the subjects and our own.
When we talk about the artistic whose work we love, it’s not just about “innate talent” that we stop and admire — otherwise known as the Gift.
It’s good to remember the gift of joy that an artist gives through the art of a smile.
