Winnie - original oil painting of an Oxford sandy and Black pig

This is an original oil painting of a very happy pig!

This pig is a rare breed, known as the Oxford Sandy and Black.I met her at my local community farm, just a few miles from where I live in Suffolk. The volunteers at the farm told me all about this breed of pig and how friendly and happy they are. I could see with my own eyes how happy they all were, living a very comfortable life teaching school children and adults about agricultural heritage and rare breeds. This particular pig looked especially happy and seemed to be laughing, so I just had to capture the moment in paint!

It is signed using an archival pen in the bottom right. The painting comes in a classic chunky frame that will suit most interiors and is ready to hang.

The image size is 30.5cm x 30.5cm (12" x 12") and is in a chunky frame that measures 43.3cm x 43.3cm.

It is painted in oil on a board prepared with two finely sanded layers of gesso.
