This is the first time I've used a photo from the reference library. Thanks to Ladybug Jane for such a cute photo. Comments/Suggestions appreciated.

Cute for sure, and very aptly titled!!!!

I like your style and the colors used. IMO, a little more shadowing under the pig will keep it from floating away!:D
Very cute pig!!! What song is it singing?

Isn't it cute? Nice painting, Irene... I used this very same pic in the RIL by Marcia for the pid in my zodiac series.... but didn't paint the dark patches on the head... :)

Cute, agree about the shadows.
Never try to teach a pig to sing,
It's hard to do and
Annoys the pig!

Thanks so much everyone , I loved painting this one! I've put a darker shadow underneath him. I'll post it soon as I get it scanned. I'm the same about pigs between Wilbur from Charlott's Web and Babe how could you not love them? :)
I didn't know that Marvin great photo from Ladybug jane isn't it?
Thanks again everyone for looking and your feedback.

Nice pig--agree about the shadows and maybe inside the ears?
Also, I visited your webpage and noticed you're in Frederick--small world, I live only a couple of minutes away in Walkersville.
What an expression!!!
I couldn't help laughing out loud when this opened :D

Darren- I noticed you were nearby, it is a small world :).
Olga- Glad it made you laugh, I love his expression too.
Rapolina- Thanks, I thought that too.... wonder how they do it painting the same thing over and over again.....
Here's the updated pic with the shadow darkened. Thanks to all for your help.
