Sorry, were you expecting some crude joke about pigs and chickens? My apologies if I disappointed you.
Today I am sharing with you three new Ornimals that are variations on the Down on the Farm series.
When Pigs Fly…
When Pigs Fly… is a specially crafted Piggy Ornimal for the Merrimack Valley Artisans (MVA) Holiday show this October. This piece will be raffled at the show as part of MVA’s scholarship fundraiser. I am designing a display stand for this piece as well.
When Pigs Fly… measures 2 3/8″ (60mm) in diameter. She features angel wings lightly dusted with white glitter.
Piggys in Berets
This piece was inspired by the Tour de France which was playing in the background in the studio. It started out with the Piggy wearing a fashionable black beret. But when I started to paint on the features I wasn’t happy with how the beret looked on his head. So I added a red feather and red bead. It seemed to give him a certain “je ne sais quoi.”
Chicken with Black Feathers
Chickens come in all sizes and plumage. This particular chicken was inspired by the Delaware breed which have black and white feathers.
September is Chicken Month!
