Pleasingly Blunt

Pleasingly Blunt

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!

Double Take

Double Take

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.

Land of My Fathers

Land of My Fathers

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!

It’s his Sofa

It's his Sofa

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.
