These are inspired from William Shakespeare’s “Twelfth Night or What You Will.” They are portraits of Viola and Olivia respectively.

Viola
Viola

“I am all the daughters of my father’s house,
And all the brothers too;
and yet I know not.”

– William Shakespeare, “Twelfth Night”

Olivia
Olivia

“Make me a willow cabin at your gate,
And call upon my soul within the house,
Write loyal cantons of contemned love
And sing them loud even in the dead of night,
Hallow your name to the reverberate hills
And make the babbling gossip of the air
Cry out “Olivia!” O, you should not rest
Between the elements of air and earth,
But you should pity me!”

– William Shakespeare, “Twelfth Night”
