In the studio

I was working in my new studio today as people wander through. A couple came into the studio and looked around making comments on the art. As they were about to leave they asked my name. Yotaki, I said and they smiled we talked about the name and what it means little one with energy or in Japanese Evening Fall. The man turns to me with a pleasant smile and says, “It matches your face.” I smiled a bit confused. As he passed through the doorway he turned and completed his statement, “very pretty.”

Wow, that just made my day ever so much brighter. It kept me smiling for the next four hours of painting. Just a simple kindness from a stranger can do so much.
