Today for April month celebrations is National Pigs in a Blanket Day!
This morning when I was looking at the National Days Calendar, finding my inspiration for my watercolor to do, I find out that the celebration was about pigs in a blanket, and my mind started to think about the cute and sweet pink little baby pigs, you know…the ones that you want to cuddle and hold in your arms. Also a lovely kids story came to my mind the famous “Charlotte’s Web” which I love!
But soon I realized that the celebration is about “Food” that pigs in a blanket are referred to different dishes that are celebrated Internationally.
Here in United States this dish is known from the 50s and is made with hot dogs or sausages wrapped with croissant or biscuit dough and baked in oven, they can be an anytime snack or eaten for breakfast or as appetizer and very often are served at kids parties because they are very easy to eat and tasty.
I felt that all my nice inspiration went away and I thought, I am not going to watercolor today! I will pass this day.
The image in my mind was totally different believe me, if you ever did see or had the opportunity to hold one of these cute baby pig, you will never want think to eat a pigs in a blanket and other products again also because the way that are produced. I personally don’t eat them, and please forgive me if you eat them I am not here to offend anyone!
After thinking about it, I changed my mind and decided that the beautiful part of being an artist is to let your creativity be “Free” and I decided to go on and watercolor my ideal of “Pig In A Blanket”
