The request came via Facebook.
Julie asked "Martha, would you paint my pig?"
Martha replied "Is this a joke?"
It was not.
Julie likes Beatrix Potter http://www.beatrix-potter-shop.co.uk/colors and in homage to Peter Rabbit I added some carrots poking out of his apron. I think he was supposed to be a butcher pig but that just felt SO WRONG so I made him a vegetarian chef pig. He is now safely back in his home kitchen making his owner very happy.
