The colorful paintings and whimsical musings of artist Kristy Tracy
Friday, January 11, 2013
It's day 10 of the 30-in-30 painting challenge, and I know you've all been waiting for me to paint that oddest of Arizona creatures and distant cousin to the hippo, the Javelina. We see packs of these pig-like animals everywhere around Prescott. They don't see well so they rely on their sense of smell and sound. They also have formidable tusks which sharpen every time they open and close their mouths, and they're not shy about defending their herd. Not to mention, they stink. Which is why you wouldn't want to introduce one to your pet door.
