The news is always negative and difficult, but recently it seems to have been particularly so – or at least it has started invading my mind while I am drawing, which is usually something that absorbs me so completely I don’t think of anything else. So I thought I would allow those thoughts to direct my doodles in a positive way, to ultimately counteract them. The rats, as ever, came to my assistance!
My dad recently got selected for this year’s Open exhibition at the Thelma Hulbert Gallery in Honiton – a proud moment as he is hugely talented (I know I’m biased but it’s true) yet doesn’t believe it himself. To congratulate him I thought I’d do him a little card and this painting pig is the result!
Rest assured my dad’s work is a lot more accomplished than this fella’s portraits – but hey, it seems to be enjoying its piggy self and that’s what counts, right?
