90 in 90 on Molokai, Day 35, Pig Farm
When we stopped at the pig farm two things stood out, one of them be grateful I can't share. The diversity of animals running around in the field, clearly used to each other, was a surprise, especially the kitten sitting around with the pigs. But the air was so full of methane it probably wasn't safe to light a match. Pigs really aren't cute. This painting is to preserve the memory. It looked like a petting zoo full of happy animals, but in reality it was muddy, stinky and loud. The trick of painting is that only the best part can be preserved.
