This painting (which I have painted on my bedroom wall). I feel like it portrays human emotions and how they can change so swiftly it’s almost like you are still attached to the emotion you had just beforehand. The face on the left represents feeling confident and motivated while the face on the right represents feeling depressed and unmotivated. When I look at this painting everyday it reminds me that even when I feel low I must not forget the times i’ve felt strong.
