Acrylic painting of a pig at the Indiana State Fair by artist Lesley Spanos.

It was a hot and humid August day at the Indiana State Fair. This pig raised a lazy eyelid when he heard my camera, then went back to sleep. I guess when you’re on display from early morning until late at night, you need to be able to catch a nap whenever you can. What I loved was how it looked like he’d fallen asleep mid-step, his butt on the edge of his feed trough.
