Two Pigs, one pink, the other pink and brown, race down a country road. It's autumn and the trees have red and yellow leaves and the grass has turned a golden brown. A rustic fence lines the rocky strewn track, and behind that rests and old wooden cart. As they pass an ash tree, the speeding hogs kick up a cloud of dust.
I had never heard of pig racing until I went an orchard here in North Georgia. I was visiting was on an early autumn day in October during the Elijay Apple Festival. The orchard had several attractions to help draw crowds away from the town square where the main festival was going on. One of these was their pig race. The competitors in the race were actually piglets rather than adult pigs, but I decided that I preferred full grown hogs in my image to give more of a sense of inertia to them.
It has been a while since I have made any pig art, but I decided it was time for a new pig themed artwork with a rustic feel to it.
