PPF, Paint Party Friday, Painting Pigs again

Meet Pig Newton, A "Smooshy" pig I painted this week for Wendy
6x6 on wood panel using slow dry acrylics

And I have been painting rolodex cards and ATCs and Twinchies and then swapping them with a great group of friends on Facebook.  We play games like "Make Me Happy" and "Play It Forward" and "Traveling Journals" and "Hitchhiker" all of which are loads of fun. 

Go to https://www.facebook.com/groups/ATCtravelingjournals/ and ask to join if you are interested.
