Piglets--Original Animal Portrait

Yesterday was another day of high heat. I painted in the morning and lounged like these little piglets in the hot afternoon--mostly catching up on reading and planning work on some color charts. This painting is 8x10 inches, oil on a gessoed hardboard panel. Sometimes a painting seems to paint itself, and this one was one of those.

Hi, I really like your blog and hope that this interests you and your readers.

I am attempting to amass a large collection of portraits of Frankenstein's Monster in as many different styles and in as many different media as possible as an ongoing art project. The only stipulation is that the size is 2.5 inches by 3.5 inches (standard artist trading card size) and that each card has name, date, location, title and anything else you care to add on the back.

I welcome cards from both amateur and professional artists.

I will be leaving blank cards with instructions and mailing address in galleries, colleges, art shops, on buses, handing them out in the street and wherever else I can think of.

If you think you can spare the time to produce a little something, please send a portrait to:

A Patchwork Of Flesh
45 Silversea Drive
Westcliff on Sea
United Kingdom

Each card I receive will be uploaded at http://apatchworkofflesh.blogspot.com/ to produce an on-line gallery, I then hope to put on an exhibition of these cards in a gallery.

If you could add me as a link or give the project a mention I would be really grateful.

They are fabulous, it is amazing that things you normally do not think of can make such wonderful paintings!

Love these piggies! That one in the foreground has that porky little look of trying to observe without missing a bite. Too cute!
