Pig Free Fall

Written by Beth Terrill- Pictures by Greg Newbold - 19" x 13", Acrylic

Plummeting toward the snow covered ground at breakneck speed, our poor piggy friend really has no time to execute the graceful acrobatic maneuvers I am sure he is capable of, but that's not the point. This picture was all about capturing the panic of a free fall while at the same time making the pig character lovable. I hope everyone who looks at this one laughs first and then says "oh no, poor piggie!". Like yesterday's post his picture also comes from "The Barnyard Night Before Christmas". It is a delightful Christmas story for young and old alike. Have a closer look here.
