I have decided that for semester 1 this year I am going to base my work on feminism. But what is feminism? It can mean so many different thing to so many different people. What feminism is in the UK today is different to what it means to people in other countries and it’s different then what it ment to the UK 50 years ago.
So first I need to grasp a better understanding of what feminism actually is, I plan to do this by researching and reading books. I intend to do this before I begin the semester so that I can be prepared to begin my work.
The aspect of feminism that is grabbing my attention is the history of the UK. I want to explore the idea of a housewife. I wish to analysis our history and the fact that woman had no other option. No choice. Their only destiny was to become a housewife. Once I have a deeper understanding about feminism I will then research our history.

My third anf final piece is almost finished. only got to stitch in facelift lines. I desided to keep all the women in my three paintings with their eyes closed,  this wasn’t a decision I made before I started,  I just thought that it would euthanize the eye lashes and make up. Eyes can distact the viewer for the purpose of the topic. 
The backgrounds are each a different colour. I was unsure whether to change them and paint them all black or not, however I asked several people and they all said that they liked them as they are, so I decided to listen

I hav finished my second painting, just need to add on my 3d affects once its dry(i.e eye lashes and bandage). I chose to paint the background red on this one to match the lips and eyelashes. In the first painting I did I painted the background green to match the womans eye shadow :)
