Positive Piggy -sold

oil on canvas panel 6x6 inches
"Paint Your Pig" is the latest Daily Paintworks Challenge. I attempted to maintain my simple rectangular brushstrokes, but given the not-so-simple organic shapes of this piggy it was difficult. This is an old sugar bowl I found at a junk store.

The challenge is posed by Carol Marine, whose blog I have followed for several years. I've learned so much about painting and blogging from her, I can't begin to tell you. Sadly, a few days ago Carol and David lost their home and studio to the wildfires near Austin, Texas. Please pray for them, the many others who have lost their homes, and for the firefighters.

  1. Positive Piggy is adorable. Just look at the wonderful little detail- like the eyelashes:) Can see where rectangular shapes are hard to come by with her.
    Feel the same way as you for Carol and David- so happy to see so many reaching out to help.

  2. Very cute piggy painting. Great detail and brush work.
