Berkshire Pig with Chickens – Original Acrylic Painting
Pigs, chickens, and patchwork are 3 subjects I never tire of painting. I also find black and white fascinating and consequently this inspired me to paint this Berkshire Pig in the snow.
I like to include other animals in the composition; they seem to need each other.
In America, the patchwork quilt is often seen at the foot of the bed. As a child I always had a bedspread and a quilt. Patchwork has always conjured up extraordinary design, warmth and cosiness. It seemed obvious to make this the final touch in this paitning.
With so many people are converting barns into houses, this sort of interior would be a perfect backdrop for The Berkshire Pig!
