Paint Party Friday: Painting Pigs Again

Paint Party Friday:  Still Painting Pigs

It has officially become an obsession.  I started out painting one a week for auction on ebay to raise money for ironwoodpigsanctuary.org and then I painted two a week, and now I can't stop. Here is my latest.  If she doesn't sell she will also go to auction.  Gosh, that feels almost like going to slaughter!  Poor piggy!
