While I was at SNAP on Saturday one of the SNAP members was busy working on this pig, as part of the King Bladud's Pigs in Bath project. Tortie Rye was painting 'There is no use quarrelling with icebergs in warm water' (WB Yeats) onto the side of a bright yellow pig, while I sat and stamped the SNAP studio logo onto a huge pile of paper bags. I had a great time chatting to her about artist co-ops, the joy of repetative tasks and my plans for world domination.

Seriously, I love that piggy to bits! :)

I understand why you enjoy being there, it looks exciting yet peaceful, if that makes any sense :).
