Pink Piglet & Diana Moses Botkin Challenge


Today is special due to the fact it is my first post for the Moses Botkin Challenge.  There are 6 artists that participate in the challenge.  The January Challenge was chosen by Sharman Owings to paint something that starts with the letters "p i".  I gave that a bit of thought and came up with Pink Piglet.  I hope you like this little piglet portrait.  She was a lot of fun to paint.  You will find paintings from the other Challenge members below.  Taking on the Challenge made for, "A Painting Day".

Thanks for sharing the different artist's paintings as well as your piglet. I have never seen a cuter piglet. Love the green in the background.

That's a great piglet. I like the way you filled the surface, the nice interplay of dark and light, and the curiosity you captured. The whole lot of pi paintings is terrific.

Oh, such beautiful paintings! I have always wanted to paint but it doesn't love me, I think.
So I paint with photoshop on my photos.
