I was in pig heaven today painting the first of my three commissioned pig portraits. The client asked for three small 6x6 inch pig paintings. I am to choose the photos and basically work it out what is really wanted. Since I am guessing at what the client wants I may do more than three pig paintings and let her have more of a choice? Pigs are so cute when they are young. My husband says the same thing about cats. He is a dog lover. They say pigs are intelligent but I have really never spent a lot of time around pigs. I remember my cousin handling his pigs on his farm in Indiana and they seemed rather aggressive and I sure did not venture into their paddock area. Give me courage to tackle the next pig portrait tomorrow. Pig painting and pig memories have made for, "A Painting Day".
