Smile 8x10in mixed media on canvas
In another life, I worked a job that required I answer the phone... a lot. Now sometimes, I didn't feel like talking, but it was part of my job. Getting cursed out for things that were no more my control than the weather sometimes made me snap pencils in half with one hand. But I kept smiling. At least while I was on the phone. Even when I was trying to swallow insults of all kinds, a smile on my face made me sound calm and cordial.
So if you're working from home or deal with people who snatch your smile on a regular basis, this one's for you.
