Peace Pig Holds Artist Hostage
Well, I have been doing some paintings that I want to share on my blog, but lately most of my time has been taken up by a pig. She is quite large (about four feet long, three feet high) and although she has a lovely body, it was not so easy to paint since I am accustomed to flat squares and rectangles as painting supports. The goal was to make her so beautiful that someone at the Old Mill School auction would buy her and thus donate money for this wonderful school. Her name is "Peace Pig" and she promotes love and goodwill towards all creatures. The phrases on her body read, "May your troubles be less and your blessings be more", "Imagine Peace", "May your heart be filled with love and laughter" and "Hogs united against greed." I hope she brings at least some of these things into the world because painting her sure stressed me out!
