Have a wonderful evening~smiling!!!

They are fantastic Patricia! The face of that pig....wonderful! (Yes the boy is cute too, lol). Love your story on the inspiration for this set.
Many years ago I was an exchange student and lived with a wonderful, loving and fun farmers family in the USA. They were dairy farmers, but also kept 100 pigs (which luckily were kept FAR away from the house). The kids all showed pigs at many farm shows and won lots of prizes with them. Clever animals, pigs! Great memories.

YOUR SCULPTURES TELL THE STORY! Oh my goodness...I love pigs. But you make them even CUTER DEAREST!!!!! I will never understand how you make something look so really out of clay. I tried working with dry clay last week and was unsuccessful. I declared that I have given up clay and will work with paper maché for what I want to do!!!!! There is only enough room for a handful of CLAY MEISTERS, and you are one of them my sweet!

Have a lovely weekend and I will visit later tonight or tomorrow; our construction and being back in the classroom has taken up my time......love, Nita
