Three Muses Challenge 11 - Wings on Things

Marie is hosting the Three Muses challenge this week and her theme is Wings on Things.

Why wings made me think of flying pigs I have no idea but it did. So here is PIGS MIGHT FLY, my entry for the challenge.

Thanks Marie for another great theme.

Credit to Irene Alexeeva for the background and weather vane, and Tammara at Pixel Music for the wonderful couple and the landscape. The pigs were cybersurfed.

Thank you so much for looking.

I had just finished swallowing my tonsils after seeing your wonderful, porcine-oriented, surreal piece and then I read Bev's comment. I am now back to trying to control myself.
Great work, Ann. You surreally are the Queen of surreal.

What a charming couple…
I love when a piece of art takes you by complete surprise.
When all you can do is smile as you study all the details.

If pigs could fly…oh my!

If pigs could fly, we'd all shoot pork and the price of bacon would rise!!! Or words to that effect... 'o)
I love your humour Ann - it's superb! And thanks for the 'low bow'!!!

Yvonne said...

Love the flying pigs!

Astrid Maclean said...

Brilliant like always, makes many of the rest of us just look boring...

Ann, your flying pigs are so cute! I think pigs are nice even as they are, but these winged cuties makes me hope that all pigs could have wings. - Isn't it great that the human mind works in "mysterious ways". One never knows what happens when it gets going.

Willy said...

Your piece is great. Love the flying pigs!

Luisa Migon said...

Ann, this is stunning!!! As surreal as I like!!! :O)

Gayle Page-Robak said...

Priceless...excellent art piece! Perfect for this theme.

Faye said...

So very funny, Ann. I have always heard of the expression "when pigs fly" but I had never seen anyone actually illustrate that. Beautifully concocted.

Amy said...

Tammara said...

WAY cool! I love it!

Rosanna said...

This is absolutely mind-blowing and fantastic!! The only suggestion I have is that the "lady" would do well to have her umbrella open and up just in case those flying pigs heed the call of nature.

Ann this is so creative and quirky. I love it.
