    There’s a pig in my studio. Yes, I said a pig. Thankfully, it’s not greased. That would have definitely been problematic. I’ll be painting the pig, of course, because that’s what I do. Paint. Pigs, Catfish, Walls, Frogs, Bricks, whatever. I’m a EOP. Equal Opportunity Painter, dontchyaknow.

    The design of the pig will be unveiled as I go, so for the next couple of weeks, I’m going to be all absorbed in the pig. Forgive me if things get a little barnyard’ish around here. In case I haven’t said it enough, this is a pig. A Big Pig. (Can you see my treadmill in the background? The wheel of the bike?) He’s elevated up onto my Bowflex bench, so you know I won’t be working out for a couple of weeks. I know what you’re thinking – nothing would say “dedication” like a piggy back ride – but I’ll pass on that gross display of visual artistry. heh!

    In a few weeks, when the pig is complete and has a clearcoat on it, it will be on display in Geneseo, Illinois for their “Pigs on Parade” during the last weekend in July.

    Tidbit of braggery: My large scale fiberglass paintings have historically been the top dogs at our local auctions. Go me!

    Just call me Ms. Piggy!

    Well, I’m glad you cleared up that mystery. Here I was thinking that it was new dieting motivation. (giggle) So you’ll be living with a pig for a while huh? How’s your back? Know you are in my thoughts and prayers. (And this little piggy had none! The joys of deviation!)

    My, what a big pig you have!! :giggle:

    How exciting that you are painting one of these to be displayed in the city!! I love seeing this type of art, a town here has turtles. Back in Texas, Fort Worth had Long Horns displayed all over the city we would look for them everytime we were downtown.

    So much fun, can’t wait to see what you do with your pig!!

    What an honor to paint a pig for Pigs on Parade! My hometown did something similar in the 70s but they painted faces on the fire hydrants in the downtown area. And then DC had the pandas, hmm, was it last year?

    Tried something similar to eharmony. The online thing just doesn’t work out for me. It depresses me, and is a real confidence breaker. Sigh. :) Hopefully, the dinner thing will work and be without stinky people. Or, I’m posting about another friends’ option for dating in tomorrow’s post. :)
