Banana Smile 2020 by ellaquaint

I wanted to do some good and cheer people up.  Playing with colour was the easiest way to do that. So it started with the idea that an upside down rainbow could hold more happiness.
In art psychology, curves that act like bowls are seen to be positive due to their similarity to a smile. Smile curves can hold more.
Things are a bit tough out there, we need more smiles.
Bright colours too are meant to have a beneficial effect on mood also 🌈😊
Their naive child like rendering also gives you those warm fuzzy feelings. 
Hopefully they put a smile on your face 😊
