Smile Power Day
Updated: Aug 25
Here's an easy breakfast to make you smile any day and an emoji pointillism piece for Smile Power Day!
I also made a pointillism drawing to represent "SMILE POWER" :) using emojis with gogobox app, which is made of smiley faces and the bicep curl/tough / making a muscle emoji. Haha! :) I'm going to look into this more for World Emoji Day, which is July 17!, but emoji art has been around for awhile and digital artists make awesome pointillism pieces using emojis! One example is: Yung Jake / Jacob Patterson who is featured in this NY Times article (@yungjake, IG)
"Pointillism was a revolutionary painting technique pioneered by Georges Seurat and Paul Signac in Paris in the mid-1880s." They painted large canvases with tiny dots of color, which became beautiful paintings when looked at from a far. Some of my favorite paintings -- one example: GEORGES SEURAT,UN DIMANCHE APRÈS-MIDI À L'ÎLE DE LA GRANDE JATTE

Today, some digital artists use emojis instead of tiny dots to create pieces of art! Haha! :)
Here is Smile Power in pointillism with emojis. Haha! :)
NATIONAL SMILE POWER DAY
On June 15th each year, National Smile Power Day shares one powerful expression.
From the good morning greeting and the first “How may I help you?” present yourself with a smile. No matter where you are employed, job seeking, retired, or looking for new horizons starting the day with a smile is certainly more empowering than a pout or grump. Starting with a smile first is easier than trying to get there later in the day.
When you smile at someone, you are telling them that they are valued and worth the smile that you just gave them. Smiles are morale boosters and confidence builders.
Research has proven that smiling really does increase attractiveness and likability between humans. Smiling creates greater trust and increased interpersonal cooperation. Smiling at someone can help them to relax and relieve their stress while at the same time, it will make you feel right. Even if you do not feel like it, smiling will lift your mood and can make you a happier person.
To make the pancake, I just colored the pancake batter yellow with food coloring. Then, I took some vanilla frosting and colore it black with food coloring and drew on the face.
Give it a try! We are good at this! And don't forget to SMILE today! :)
