I couldn’t resist – the orange background is just the colour of Red Leicester cheese – that’s my excuse and I’m sticking to it!
My third painting for advent – 3rd December 2013.
This fella is a rare breed and a very lucky piggy too. He lives at the Ulster Folk and Transport Museum, from the first litter of the year and already a bit of a bruiser when I met him – kind of a teenager piglet, with attitude!
I think he’s looking proud or maybe a bit smug here – maybe he just realises he’s an exhibit pig – not potential bacon.
Acrylic on a deep stretched canvas – 5 x 7 x 1½ inches – the painting wraps over the edges.
