Pig Updates

First I want to share a card that I received from my blogging friend Dana in Florida.

She sent me this "just because".  And believe it or not, she drew this image from something she saw.

She is quite a talented artist.  Inside the card were all these additional images - some colored and some not.

Looks like I've got the makings for some pretty piggy cards!  

Speaking of pigs, back to the update.  

I have been working on my pig.  It has been a bit of a process as I have something pictured in my head and now the chore is to be able to create it in real life.  I spent part of today working with a new tool as part of the process.  And my pig has gone through several different "paintings".  I started with a couple of coats of gesso and then decided to add color.  The initial color was too dark so another coat was tried mixed with some gesso.  Well, that too was too dark, so yet another coat was slopped on.  It's not quite what I had pictured at this point, but it's getting there.

Also, I have heard (and seen) that three of the pigs are completed!  And beautifully I might add!  We shall see them all in a little less that two weeks and I am so looking forward to that.  


  1. Can't wait to see all the pigs Lorraine! Sounds like your process is going exactly as it is meant to be :) Gotta love gesso!!!!! :) Have fun continuing to experiment!!!!

  2. That's a darling card - if I could draw like that it would save a fortune in stamps.
    I was having trouble getting my little piggy's eyes the way I wanted - now I think she just needs a nice collar or necklace and she'll be ready for her photo-shoot.


It's always so nice to hear from visitors. Thanks for stopping by and leaving a comment.
