Pickles, the Ticklish Piglet





I just finished little Pickles this afternoon.  He's about 9 inches long to his tail.  He's my first ever open mouthed piggy.  Pickles was inspired by the scene in "Babe" where Mrs. Hogett is measuring poor Babe to see if  he will fit in the roasting pan.  Babe looked so cute giggling, that I had to make a giggling piglet.  Pickles is truly happy because he isn't destine for the oven.

Oh Robin how darling! This has to be my fav of all of your art to date! Wonderful! I have been working on a pig in a dress right now so we must have been thinking piggies at the same time!

Thanks everyone for the compliments on little Pickles :-)
Lol, Barby. It does seem like it's piggy season or something. A friend of mine on Facebook, Melisa Nichols, listed her little piggy on eBay just as I was putting the finishing touches on Pickles. The picture she showed looked a lot like the pose I had Pickles in. But the piggy looks entirely different. I guess great minds think alike ;-) Here's a link to her auction. http://cgi.ebay.ca/ws/eBay​ISAPI.dll?ViewItem&item=17​0664777881&ssPageName=STRK​%3AMESELX%3AIT
