Coffee with Art: Painting Piggies

Cute Piggy. Tough Piggy.

Well! This is the 5th edition to my Source of Strength series. Today is the first day of my weekend after I started journaling again!

So, I’ve downloaded the pdf of Marcus Aurelius’ Meditations, and I’ve been writing in a private journal about how each of his journal entries pertain to my own life. What lessons was he teaching himself that I too need to take away?

As a result, I don’t feel stressed, frustrated, depressed, or resentful like I have been during my days off. I’m really excited and motivated to face the day! Yup. Stoicism. That’s the way to live.

I really like this piece. It’s not really as dignified as a cute puppy with an inner wolf. Boars are not exactly as magestic as wolves or lions, but having visited Sienna, Italy while wild boars are pretty much their mascot (also, wild boar meat is super delicious!), I have a bit of a soft spot for them.

I have no idea what I’m going to make tomorrow though. Tomorrow’s going to be my last animal in the series… I may just end up doing a caterpillar/butterfly motif.
