Snack Time-Pig

 Close ups

 Oil on 7x5 canvas panel.

This is my contribution to this week's WDE at Wet Canvas. Athena was the gracious host this week who provided a bunch of great photos!

 I just couldn't resist the pig. They usually strike me as humorous critters. Dunno...might just be me.

This is oil on a 7x5 canvas panel. You can look down and see each phase of this painting. From the toning of the support with thinned alizarin the the thin layer of mid value the climax of the thick, bright, sun lit areas.
Hope y'all like it!

C&C welcome. Thanks for looking and commenting!

Matthew 3:16     And Jesus, when he was baptized, went up straightway out of the water: and, lo, the heavens were opened unto him, and he saw the Spirit of God descending like a dove, and lighting upon him


  1. Wonderful subject, Dean! I love all the colors you used !!

  2. I don't know why...I always feel so sorry for pigs. But you've sure done this big guy proud, Dean!!

    1. You know what, Shelly? ...I agree. There is a sadness in the penned up lives they lead.
      But when I put that from my mind, they are humorous. Strange........

  3. awesome! yes, I do like it! so much volume and weight -in paint!

    1. Thank you, Celeste! That's what I was going for.

  4. Hi, Kaethe...I really liked your painting of the interior scene today! Great sunlight on that chair.

  5. Really, really a great pig. Love the way I feel I can look right down into his ear.

  6. Good morning Dean!. You do this "Porker" proud with the rich colour and gestural strokes in this pig portrait!

    Your jaunty and pleasingly playful painting underscores my similar belief that beauty can be found everywhere about us in the strangest and lowliest of places. Bravo!

    Good Painting!
    Warmest regards,
