I was watching a video and noticed someone wearing a Rocky Horror Picture Show t-shirt, and ever since I saw that movie I always loved the intro with the floating lips.

I originally wanted to create painterly lips floating in black but as I expanded the canvas, there seemed to be too much black. The second lips were originally in a beige background but changed to white at the last minute which made it really stand out. The messy look of the second was a mistake as I was erasing but it captured the fun of smiling so I decided to go with it and it made for some interesting contrast in the painting with simple and messy lips beside each other.
