This was originally painted for an art Exhibition at the Milton Keynes Art gallery called WoMen. The artists had to submit an art piece that represented how they felt about being a women. I started to paint the happy, optimistic side to my personality. To achieve this I needed to study my face with a happy expression focusing my attention on the things in life that made me happy. Then to understand the complete opposite I studied my face frowning and thinking thoughts of anger. During this process I realised that as a women I experienced both emotions. I finally decided to paint both, the yin and the yang. Realising that as a woman I needed to accept that I was combinations of both sides of my personality.
