jump for joy meadow


yippee....i finished this painting today......i started it eons ago....i worked on it monday at allison's.....i actually made the pigs, the tree, the borders, the swirly pink grass happies.......and then today.....i outlined.....made eyeballs....did the little footies.....and made that cutie pie sign.......allison had said, i think you might need something in that bottom right corner.......and i knew it did...it was a bit empty....but wasn't sure what to put there.......i was thinking about a bush or some flowers....but.....boing.....had that lightbulb moment.....illustration friday topic is SIGNS.....i'm gonna put a sign...a happy, piggy, fabulous sign....no pressure.....now what does a happy, piggy, fabulous sign say? i came up with: Jump for joy meadow as the large print.....and below it, leap and bound at own risk, no life guard on duty........these pigs, of course, can read.......

here's a DIDJA KNOW? .....didja know that i write on the back of all my canvases? i kind of journal as i go on them...particularly since some of them are in process for months (years?).......i write what i was thinking about or doing ...what the painting means.....so, on the back of this one, it says "three flying pigs" ......
LESSON LEARNED: don't title your painting before it is done! i was going to put wings on...but then switched to have them jumping for joy....oops! ......

now, i'm a bit miffed (my miffed is very subtle, i'm not that miffed at all) .......i can't get my photos to upload to flickr...nor can i get them to load onto this blog.......is it the flickr site? the blogger site? the whole whumongous world wide web? or my computer? heaven forbid it is MY computer.......but it has been going on ALL afternoon...since about two when i finished the pig joy painting....it is now almost 8 (american idol time!) ......so....i'll give up on the pic....if you read this and there IS a piggy pic...then you know i stayed up all night trying and trying and retrying to upload........
