The New Baby--Original American Piglet Painting

This morning I enjoyed bringing this little fellow to life. He is painted in oils on a recycled 6x6 canvas panel. The texture of the panel was perfect. Beginning with his eyes, every paint stroke brought character to him. When I was finished, it was difficult not to like his cute little face. He sold quickly at my Small Impressions Gallery at Etsy.

Thanks so much for the kind words. This little guy was just so much fun to paint--thinking about another little piggy painting soon.
