Self Portrait 2: Teeth and Tongue

Today I have the second in a series of self portraits. Back in November I shared the first of these very flattering images of myself. I talked about working traditionally on Monday in my look back at 2014 and this piece is a part of that. its own special, creepy, drooling kind of way. Here is the second in a series of self portraits I am working on...

There is a corresponding drawing to this painting, of course. As with some of my other smaller paintings the drawing is bigger then the painting. Here is the drawing for this self portrait...

I was not expecting to have this painting on my schedule anytime soon, but when a window of time opened to work on it I acted on it. I was working quickly with some starts, stops, and gaps in painting times. Because of all this I did not do a good job of documenting the piece coming together. Also, after just finishing two paintings for a client and documenting those exhaustively, I kind of didn't want to take a bunch of photos as I worked. Here a just a couple images that I took while working on this piece...
