Pig in Shades


Click Here to Bid

Apparently I've created quite a reputation for myself. Everyone seems to think I'm some kind of wine guzzling party gal. I have no CLUE how you might have inferred that from what I've written here on my blog. No clue. So here I am in Sedona and my kids not only ply me with wine each and every night, they keep me out WAY past my bedtime (sometimes until 9!!!) and even pour hot fudge sundae's down my throat. What a horrible life I lead.

A big thank you to Cornelia who sent me a replacement pig (the brother to the small one lost in the fire). I painted him here with my cool new shades from Target.

I love this one. Beautiful colours and reflections in the shades and a great cute and happy feeling with the pig. It's the kind of painting I would look at every now and then to cheer me up when I'm down - maybe you should keep it for yourself for that reason?

Wow! This little pig is so tender and beautiful in his exquisite supersized sunglasses.
He should be looked at every single day because he'll make any day brighter.

Carol, you do have quite a reputation! A reputation that we would all die for . . . a true artist's artist, a comedian, a friend to your many followers and workshop attendees, and someone who makes lemonade out of lemons. It's been amazing to watch your family rise from the ashes and keep going. You're an inspiration to us all! Although if I were you, I'd get those kids under control!! We can't have all the wine drinking and partying going on! LOL

Jo Castillo said...

Ha! Fun. Your painting reputation holds you up, not to worry!
