April 22-29 – My original oil painting of Melvin, the tripod and earless pig from Odd Man Inn Animal Refuge in Janesville, TN is part of the 6th annual online art show and auction to raise money for this amazing farm animal sanctuary & it’s the featured art for their event! The painting is framed and ready to hang – canvas size is 24 x 18. Here is a link to the event where you can purchase chances to win a number of different art packages to benefit the sanctuary. Melvin lost his ears and his leg due to an altercation with a dog before he was taken in and rehabilitated by Odd Man Inn. His recovery is truly amazing and a testament to this strong boy’s will to survive. And, to make this art submission even better, Kat von Cupcake wrote a poem to accompany this painting:
A Hat for Melvin
What did you say?
I couldn’t quite hear.
Come a little closer,
And it all should be clear.
You see I met a big dog
Who I thought was a friend
Sadly you see,
He was not in the end
During a melee
My ears they got took,
and now that is why
they look how they look.
My leg met with trauma,
so now I have three,
but I am not one for drama
that just wouldn’t be me.
So be of good cheer,
my life is quite good.
A sweet human friend
knitted me this nice hood.
When folks see me they say,
(and I thinks it’s funny)
“Hey look at that cute pig,
or is he a bunny?”
