Artist's Description

My Happiness – 10 out of 10

No matter what’s going on underneath… I always aim to, wherever possible, project smiles and sunshine. Show depression and sadness and you see & find more sadness… show and project happiness and you find & see hapiness. – Pip Gerard.

Before children, even the most cynical people throw down their usual masks and become capable of feeling the purity and love which all human beings seek – Sun Myung Moon

Always look on the bright side of life – Monty Python

Love takes off masks that we fear we cannot live without and know we cannot live within – James Arthur Baldwin(Playwright and Novelist, 1924-1987)

God has given you one face, and you make yourself another. ~ William Shakespeare

The closing years of life are like a masquerade party, when the masks are dropped – Arthur Schopenhauer (German Philosopher, 1788-1860)

We all have a social mask, right? We put it on, we go out, put our best foot forward, our best image. But behind that social mask is a personal truth, what we really, really believe about who we are and what we’re capable of. – Phil McGraw
