PPF Paint Party Friday, Meet "Pig"


My week of painting . . . and some fun groups on Facebook!

Thanks to Tammy Gulat for letting me use her photo of "Pig" as a reference for this painting. 


"Meet 'Pig'... Got her for Christmas from my brother the year we moved to the farm. Didn't see that coming. I have to tell you, she really was a cute baby. We actually kept her in the kitchen during the winter, because she was a tiny hairless creature. She loved our dogs and would chase them around the house. We moved her to the barn in the spring where she grew like a weed eventually weighing 250 pounds... She was a big girl FoSho! We sold her for breeding stock, not bacon. She was a well bred animal from a big Hog farm in Indy." - Tammy Gulat 


This week's painting is another pig, of course!   But I have painted other stuff this week - Lots of ATC/ACEO cards 2.5 x 3.5 inches, including these victorian ladies and 4 teapots for the ACEO TW Group APRIL challenge.




and Some Rolodex cards that I swapped with the lovely ladies at the other group I am actively involved with:  Traveling ATC Journals and Rolodex Swap group on Facebook.


Happy Paint Party Friday, Everyone!

  6. Thanks, everyone. I enjoy PPF because it makes me think about what I did all week long. Sometimes I forget how many different things I do in 7 days. One pig a week, and lots of ATCs.
