This Little Piggy... 6x6 Inches, Oil

$100 & $10 S&H

This little piggy came from Sedona.  Carol Marine, Mary Sheehan Winn and I all were captivated by them.  So look for them to pup up here and there on the blogsphere.  It is actually a 3 legged pig.  I'm getting my painting legs back - and really really liked the way this little guy came out.  However after I finished him, I should have quit, but I plowed ahead, and painted this painting, below, which ended up getting wiped off!
I spent 3 hours today with my 'talking' Prius at the dealership - for a 15 minute scheduled appt.  After all they they 1) couldn't figure out why the car was beeping, chirping and flashing all the warning lights at me, and 2) they completely forgot to replace my headlight.  A not-so-sood morning all around.  So I'm not surprised that the one below was not up to par, and got 'the axe'.  Just so you know...

  3. I wish I had your mint picture rather than the rag. Don't see the problem. Don't be too hard on yourself. I think if my car was beeping at me I might be a bit a bit crazy.
    Love your pig too. Three legs?

  5. Kelley,
    Ok one little piggy went to market and this one went to the Prius dealer and went wee wee wee all the way home. Is that the rest of the story? Love ya Kell. We have to deal with these car. I spent a good part of my life last week getting tires. But now my Toyota has happy feet.

  6. Piggy painted, Prius serviced & one wipeout (not needed)...all in one day. Impressive. Hope you drank the martini from the last post at day's end.

  7. Oh Kelley, this is crazy, your wipe-out was just great! Next time, just mail it to me! I loved it! I think the dealership just put you in a negative place. As for the piggy, just adorable!

  10. Really nice job on the piggy, Kelley ... I love it! Sorry it sounds like you've been having frustrations with paintings the last week ... I have confidence you're going to break out soon (in a good way, of course!) ... This pig certainly seems a leap in the right direction!
