|6x6 Acrylic on masonite board|
Basically, this was a one-off whose purpose was to allow me to practice painting mouths and even moreso, teeth, which can be a pain to draw and paint.
I have a love-hate relationship with my teeth, due to an overbite caused by an underdeveloped jaw, and over the years I have taken a page from Shelley Winters' biography and learned to smile with a lightly-opened mouth in order to slightly disguise the overbite.
I don't know why I just told you that.
I did this on masonite hardboard, and I'm really not sure how I feel about hardboard yet. I find it doesn't have the same tooth as canvas so it can be difficult to get a solid, non-streaky color (as I found in previous works).
Overall, though, I like the pop art feel here.
