Hopefully this blog will inspire you to have confidence in your creative abilities and give you courage to learn and try new things. Try something NEW. It could be just what you need to make you a better artist, or a better person. My latest obsession is Amigurumi Crochet, and my favorite subjects right now are Hollywood Icons, Famous People and Characters.

Dapple and Sarah: Ironwood Pig Sanctuary Pigs

Penny Paints Pigs:

"Dapple and Sarah" are two of the beloved pigs living at The Ironwood Pig Sanctuary - a 501(c)(3) non-profit organization dedicated to eliminating the suffering of pot bellied pigs in Arizona and surrounding states by promoting spaying and neutering, assisting owners and other sanctuaries, and providing a permanent home in a safe, nurturing environment for those that are abandoned, abused, neglected, or unwanted.  They are home to almost 600 pot bellied pigs.

These are a couple of characters, for sure.  After spending time painting their picture, I feel as though I know their personalities.  This is really how they look.  Seriously.  They are smiling and clowning around.  Love those pigs.

This 5 x 7 whimsical acrylic painting is an original, not a print.  It is being sold to raise money for ironwoodpigsanctuary.org to help their cause.  

95% of the proceeds from this sale will be donated to their cause.
