Ever second hand shop? I love to visit thrift stores, second hand shops, the Goodwill, Salvation Army store and look for odd and interesting objects to paint. I use them for a while, then donate them back. That way I can enjoy them, then pass them on again. I have gotten some strange looks, because I will actually pick up a few things and spend some time right in the store setting them up in a still life arrangement.
The piggy bank in this painting is one of those things I found. The little guy caught my eye and reminded me of when I was young. My first bank was a glass pig that I slowing filled up and later opened my first bank account with those savings. I wonder if kids still do that now?
With this little painting I wanted to create something classic and childish at the same time.
Just thought I would share my thought process on this one.
