I am so excited!  I found the cutest old pull toy at the flea market this week.  Cookie Pig is going to be perfect for a still life oil painting...I love the antique children's toys the best, as they always invoke a nostalgia, a happy feeling for most people.  The colors are bright and cheerful, and I can add other fun things in with it, a tall toy or maybe a jump rope...any suggestions, anyone?  What else do you think I should add to the painting?  I want to add something alive, as well.  Like the old Masters' Dutch paintings that added butterflies and bugs, I would like to add creatures as well.  Maybe a tiny chipmonk?  Or a bumblebee?
