For everyone who loves a guinea pig, we know that they have the most pleasingly blunt snouts. My friend Chuck knows this better than most!
The title “Luna Cuy” is a play on the term lunacy, I am crazy for my boy pig, the sweetest pig that ever did a jig!! I am also crazy about our beautiful moon!
The second painting of our sweet neighbor piggy!
A close up detail of my first attempt at multidimensional art. I painted Cuy’s basic image on board, then applied a mylar sheet over top and painted in detail his eyes, fur, and toes. The finished result is quite pleasing, and a technique I will use again in the future.
My boy has the most pleasingly slack lips of any piggy! Here he is sitting on the arm of his sofa daydreaming.
Cuy was born in Wales, so here he is depicted as a Welsh Dragon pig on a background of the Welsh flag. This is a very rare beast indeed, and not to be trifled with!
My first attempt at folk art, Cuy is asleep on his sofa beneath a picture of the lonely pine on the Sandia peak where our ancestral piggies have their ashes scattered.
I painted himself on a separate piece of canvas and applied it to the composition to make him look a little more 3D.
