Oil on museum quality ampersand gessobord panel - 6" x 8"

This is Hammie, the pot-bellied pig. He lives in Hampstead, MD with a menagerie of his friends. He is the lone pig among a host of llamas, donkeys, goats, sheep, chickens and cats - lots and lots of cats. Hammie has a face only a mother could love (and his human mother does, dearly - in fact this porcine portrait is a surprise birthday gift for her so those of you who know her please keep it to yourselves), but as the saying goes, "He has a winning personality." Indeed, you might call him a stupendous pig.

What a wonderful painting, Mark! I'm sure Hammie's owner will be delighted with this beautiful portrait.
