I had a brainstorm/ kick in the keester when I spoke to an event planner. Seems LOL, a term that means laugh at loud was a quality that another event planner thought important. I relayed a story how a very shy guest was watching me caricature someone and as I asked if she would like to be drawn, her touching response was that she was not pretty and preferred not. When I finished with my drawing I found her with her husband and did a LOL picture of him, of her I was quite flattering, so much so that he face lit up. While LOL is a fine quality, I find some people do not appreciate an LOL if they perceive it is at their expense. But the dialog did help me push my presidential portraits more LOL, and for that I say thanks.
