The Smile

30 Paintings in 30 Days Challenge

Day 10

10-The Smile“The Smile”

10″ x 8″ Original watercolor painting on watercolor paper.

My blog yesterday was about smiles in portrait art. The fine art world has many rules, regulations and opinions about what is fine art and what is just illustration. Today I dared to be different and painted a portrait with a great big, beautiful smile. If my Day 10 painting is just an illustration than that’s fine with me. I’m content to be labeled “just an illustrator”. I love to smile, so why not paint smiles.

  1. I like smiles too! They make the world a much better place to live, it connects all of us on a very basic but important level. I love the “painting”.

    Love you
