Moses Botkin Monthly Challenge

This month's challenge was "Pig Party" - and I was not quite sure what to do with that. But my little scene involves two pigs harassing a hippo. To be honest, I just sort of threw this together today while I had an hour. You wouldn't believe the week we've had here. Read my post below for the update.

What I liked about these little creatures are the open mouths... like they are all howling or singing.
I should mention that the choice for this theme was made long before the swine flu craze hit the states. :-)

Thanks for your participation in our monthly Challenge, Robin! I think we all had to think hard on this one, but had fun with it! I sure did.

It almost looks like the pigs are singing with the hippo. Maybe it's a beer drinking song.
Glad you found the time to paint with all the commotion going on in your home!
