Pencil portraits, a reminder to smile and not take life too seriously, a humble pencil under the nose is enough to brighten our day. Our posture, the way we move and our facial expressions all affect our emotions… so remember to smile and you will feel happier, stand tall and you will be stronger, and move gracefully and you will feel like a ballerina! The orange pencil canvas shows a woman with an orange pencil across her top lip, almost as if mocking a moustache with the pencil! With an olive green background and realistic looking printed frame in grey.
“Inspired by a psychological study on the ‘facial feedback’ theory of emotion, whereby people were asked the same questions with a pencil under their nose and without it, and then asking how they felt. They were happier using their facial muscles as, by smiling and doing certain facial expressions, you can actually feel happier…” Brendan Young
