Hog head cheesy? Using this sow’s skull as my canvass, I have painted “High On The Hog”!

OK, it is common knowledge that a head mount of a large feral boar is an impressive trophy. Even a “European Skull Mount” can be very eye-catching. Sows, however, have small tusks for the size of their heads, and are not in great demand as wall hangers. After staring at one I saved from the bone pile for a long time and giving it a lot of thought, I finally settled on rattle-can spray painting the lower jaw, but could not decide what to do with the rest of the head. Finally, since I am working on an oil painting with a nice buck deer as its centerpiece and will not finish that one for some time, I decided to “paint” this sow – literally!

Yes, in my corner of the art world, the pig is my canvass!
