    I do know that your smile is mesmerizing and picturesque. Could I frame it and put it on my wall?

    Are both okay here?

    They are much better as two separate sentences. I would change "I do know that" to "I think" or "I believe". In fact, you could just start with "Your smile ...".
    Remember - if you don't use correct capitalisation, punctuation and spacing, anything you write will be incorrect.

    Your first sentence is incorrect. It is a run-on sentence known as a comma splice. I agree with ems's revision.
