Playful Pig Painting + Symbolism

I’m really loving choosing my subject and colors to paint from strips of paper in a cup.  Today’s subject was Pig with the colors pink, purple and teal.  You’ll also see some grey, white and black – I allow myself to use white and black along with the chosen colors, and if I want to add other colors as I paint I allow that too.  It is simply a process that gets me going, rather than overthinking subject and colors.

Just for fun I thought I’d look up pig symbolism.  I believe that our decor influences us, so if we have art that symbolizes things we want to achieve, it will help us achieve that. Pigs symbolize prosperity, wealth and abundance!  I’m tempted to keep this painting, haha πŸ˜‰  The pig is also thought to bring luck to farmers as it brings in a good crop and rains.  What do you think of when you think of a pig?

I painted this on a 5″ x 7″ canvas board with acrylics and I have listed it on eBay here

Here are a few of the products available with my art printed on them (by clicking an item you like, it will take you to the page where it’s available). They’d make great gifts to yourself or someone you love and would help support my dream of becoming a full-time writer and artist. Any purchase would be SO appreciated, but if you don’t want to or can’t, that’s totally fine. Just stopping by and reading my blog is a huge support.

  1. Love the cute painting. We drove to Florida one year, and at a rest stop we noticed a woman who had a little piglet on a leash. The piglet was wagging its little tail, just like a puppy. I think pigs are intelligent. πŸ€—

  2. I love love piggies they are so smart, much smarter than we give them credit. They are also very clean. A pig makes me joyful, they make think about playing. They roll in the mud with such ease. Playful comes to mind with a big smile.

  3. That is one cute pig, Monica! And I love the wistful expression. Looks like she’s wishing for something–I wonder what? The mascot for our current city of residence, Cincinnati, is a pig, a holdover from when they were the pork capital of the country. Each year they hold the Flying Pig Marathon. What I didn’t know was “pigs symbolize prosperity, wealth and abundance!” All the more reason for embracing them as a community mascot–especially as we think of those qualities in terms of community spirit, consideration for one another, and support of each another. THAT would be a prosperous city!
