I really dig this Feed Time painting by Stephen Mitchell. It reminds me of Snowball, Squealer, and Napoleon, the pigs in the George Orwell story Animal Farm. I’m not sure that the artist was thinking of these particular pigs, though when he was painting this.
I especially like the abstracted nature of the painting. I love texture!
Stephen says. The basis of my art is figurative, but I like to bring in abstract or expressive elements. I love fusing different textures with paint and trying to create a sculptural feel on a 2D canvas. I can be equally happy when working purely with paint!
