Ellen's work, Easter Pig, is reminiscent of a 1950s Greek Easter:
Traditionally, a Greek Easter features lamb, but I did this painting based on a family joke. All of the people in the painting are my relatives. We have many fond memories connected with this time of year. The painting is 22" x 30" and is done with transparent watercolor.
The works can also be viewed online through the New England Watercolor Society's web site.
