Day 362: Something on my Mind…

Teeth (Watercolour Sketch)

Teeth (Watercolour Sketch)

Apologies up front to anyone who doesn’t like mouths and gets squeamish about the dentist… you might want to skip today’s blog 😛

I didn’t think I would be painting anything today as I’ve been in so much discomfort all day. I  learned at an emergency dentist appointment this afternoon that I have an abscess under one of my molars, it should take about 24 hours for the antibiotics to begin taking effect and I’m counting every breath until they do. I wouldn’t wish this on anyone!

I seriously considered skipping practise today and catching up tomorrow, then decided to focus my attention more productively – I’m constantly thinking about my teeth anyway, so why not paint them! These are from a quick photo in the bathroom mirror – I had ideas of going psychedelic with the colours to depict the pain, but I’m not feeling that creative :-P. Hopefully we’ll be back to a more normal (and pain free) situation and subject tomorrow!
