Through The Window

The thing I love most about art is the feelings it inspires in other people. Art can lift your spirits! Or make you want to cry. I love putting smiles on peoples faces, and the most fun and effective way for me, is through my art. One thing I really enjoy doing is when I go out to eat with the family or my friends, making a special picture for the waiter or waitress, and putting a little note on it saying something along the lines of “Thank you (insert waiter/waitress’ name) We appreciate your hard work”. Something this does is force me to pay more attention to the waiter/waitress than just ordering my food, and it shows the person waiting on us that we paid attention. I then leave the picture under the collective tip, and watch from somewhere where I wont be observed(like through a window) to see their reaction. The smiles that I receive are the best reward I could ever get (though money is nice too, gotta pay for those text books).

Here is a perfect example, last night I went to IHOP with my family and a couple family friends. Since it was Saint Patrick’s Day, you could get a three stack of pancakes for one dollar if you wore green, so of course we were taking advantage of the cheap pancakes(gotta love IHOP). So I did my picture thing, and placed it on the table with the tip. when we finally managed to leave, I watched as the waiter cleaned off the table and found my little gift. I saw him smile a little but he disappeared behind a pillar and I missed the part where, my friends tell me, he made a “wow” face. I did however see him show his coworkers. That made me happy. Also the waitress I had when we did the free stack on International Pancake Day was there. Sadly I forgot to take a picture of the drawing I made for her. Fail on my part there. I wanted to ask her if she kept the picture but I didn’t think she’d remember me. Oh well, at least she smiled too. 🙂IHop_Jacob

    This is such a wonderful way to show appreciation to those in the service industry. Good for you Cassandra . You are an inspiration to all of us. I can’t draw like you but maybe I can come up with my own way to sprinkle joy along the way.
