 This old piggy bank used to belong to my Grandfather,
and I always loved it.  It's missing the little stopper
on the belly that used to hold the money in...I
can only imagine how many pennies this
little ceramic piggy bank has saved over the years!

All of my paintings for this Challenge will be done in a 6 x 6 format,
and my main goal while painting from life
something which will only benefit my work.

If you would like to join this Challenge, or just follow the
work of the participating artists, just visit her blog:

Love this little piggy - I was just getting read to paint my OLD glass piggy bank from my childhood. BTW - Would be so cute for a child's room!
