16x20 - oil on canvas

this one ended up being the last piece I finished.
She was a last minute thing, but Im glad she popped up.
I had teeth written down in my book. Ive always had a thing for teeth. I have dreams about teeth. 
I actually used to like pulling my teeth out when they were loose. Im not sure why. 
Maybe it was because it was a instant end to pain. 
And thats what I think of when I think of teeth. Pain.

I guess shes my version of the tooth fairy. 
I had a different girl sketched up, much more regal and elegant. But as I started to paint, this girl showed up. 
She has a mean look to her, as if she likes your pain and wants to wear it.

Thank you Daisy! :D
yeah, I was thinking while painting what does she do with all those teeth? Im thinking that's why she ended up looking like that.;)
