Here is the PIG! recent watercolor painting... C O M P L E T E L Y out of the box for me.... but...
i believe that is healthy and good for artists to do things out-of-the-box at times....
I went to the ILLINOIS STATE FAIR in Springfield, IL this summer.. and fell in love with this PIG!
so.... felt compelled to paint him. First.. the small maquette [posted on www.watercolor300.blogspot.com]
and then.. gradually this week.. the larger version of the pig began to emerge.
so far.. i LOVE it! it says everything i wanted to say.. and more.
it's big.. it's bawdy.. it's in-your-face fun... so totally unscripted and energizing to paint.
