Sketch of one of my favorite character in the film Happy Thank you More Please: Annie
Annie opening the bottle of medicine using her mouth after failed attempts of opening it with her hands.
Pen and watercolor on sketchbook
Annie: About a year ago, I was in this cab, and the cab driver – this Indian guy, started telling me…he started telling me all sorts of stuff. He was just looking at me in the rear view mirror and he said, Bliss. Bliss is your birthright. And I was like, Uh…45th and Madison? And he said, You have great potential in this lifetime. The key to your life is gratitude. You do not give enough thanks. And I said, Well, how do I do that? And he said, Simple! Say ‘thank you.’ And I said, Well, when? And he said, All the time! Like now. And he said that after I say ‘thank you,’ I should say, ‘more please’
Sam #2: Wait… thank you, more please?
Annie: Yeah! That with gratitude, the universe is eternally abundant. So, I’ve been giving gratitude a shot. Thank you more please. Thank you more please. Thank you more please.

Beautiful work! Love how you shaded her and blending of colors on her shirt! Happy PPF!
Excellent! The quote and the art.
Terrific illustration. Happy PPF and enjoy the weekend, Annette x
I love how her other hand is in a fist — I can feel her frustration trying to open that #^@%! bottle! Happy PPF!
Love that headscarf!

Very true about gratitude. :)
What a great conversation!
Thanks for sharing, happy PPF!
Interesting convo you had with the driver. Great job of Annie having a hard time opening the bottle. Really nice! Happy PPF!
I love this post….gratitude is the key!!
Lis, your painting is lovely. I like the style of painting you did, loose and free.
This is an intriguing picture. It reminded us a little of Quentin Blake’s illustrations!
Ms. Anna you should watch the movie too. I adore Annie much!
