All in the Family

Last year, Dad raised three pigs, which were very cute, but got big pretty fast. They were destined for the freezer from the get-go, but I think Dad had some difficulty when it came time for them to meet their destiny.

Mom did a lovely little painting of the three pigs, and Dad decided that he must have it. So she sold it to him, and asked Dave to build a frame for it. We just put the piece together today, and it looks beautiful. The frame is fir that's been dyed a little, but really, the colour is from multiple layers of finish. It's hard to see in the photo, but the grain still shows up, just more subtle than in the raw wood. It's also not that black, more of a deep espresso colour, which really complements the painting.

So thanks to Dad for the growing, Mom for the painting, and Dave for the framing, of Dot, Rose & Penny!
