Ready to Hang
Piggy-wig, the very first painting in The Owl and the Pussycat Suite. I knew I wanted to paint a pig in a suit, but cute guys in suits weren't inspiring. I thought to myself, "Who wears a suit all the time?" Then it hit me - Trump wears a suit! So thanks to whitehouse.gov I found my inspiration. It wasn't until after I painted him that I realized this painting can be interpreted as a political statement- totally unintended. I just wanted to paint a pig in a suit with rings in his nose.
One of my earliest memories is coloring on the floor with purple crayons, and not long afterwards, I switched to paint and never looked back.
