My Crazy but civilized Boar / Pig is officially finished
The Artwork of Kolene Spicher
|Closeup of head!|
|Wonderful 19th century primitive frame probably for an old Currier and Ives|

|closeup of ugly|
|I painted around the pig. No sense adding paint that I will later "paint over"|
Obviously there were many steps in between. But you get the idea. One thing that I did spend some extra time on was the sky. I had painted more defined clouds that I later decided were distracting to my pig and my pig, I mean man. They have to be the main attraction!
|Sad but true! Lots of clouds were painted away...|
Here is a shot that gives you an idea of the scale of this painting. The size is about 13"x17" outside dimensions.
