Three "Little" Pigs!



Saturday morning I visited Bagaduce Farm right here in Brooksville where the Deborah and Spencer Evans raise English Large Black & Tamworth pigs. Deborah sells bacon, ham, sausage, and chops at the Brooksville, Stonington, and Blue Hill Farmers' Markets. These three are her breeding stock. Aren't they a hoot! Martha Stewart (left) and Hillary Clinton (right) are English Large Black sows, famous for their EARS! Arnold Schwazenegger (middle) is a Tamworth/ Landrace boar.

I'm going to carve each one into his/her own 10" X 13" birch plywood slab. A triptych of sorts. Stay tuned for "little" pig #1!

With names like that how could you resist doing their portraits! I look forward to watching the prints unfold.
