The Picorgi....


 Some of you know me very well it would seem
and I was sent this gem of a gift
which is genius on so many levels it makes my brain hurt
Some might see a flying pig
and start to make all sorts of smart arse comments
about things that may need to happen in my world before pigs actually fly
things like joining a gym, giving up chocolate
or not laughing like a madwoman at the fart soundboard thing that Phantom found
that I mentioned in the last post
there is one called Oprah Wind-fry, and another called the Bowels of theTitanic
I swear anyone would get the giggles
but I look at this little beauty and I see not a flying pig
but the perfect companion to our Solar Queen...
I take great pleasure in presenting to you
our Picorgi... 


You can actually get a solar corgi
which would be an awesome companion for the Queen I admit
but anyone can have a corgi
and while the actual Queen may not be ready to embrace a pig as a pet
she may be tempted if we tell her it is a hybrid
a one of a kind, a unique companion in a world of blandness
She is the woman who has everything I would think
so maybe a picorgi would appeal
I know it appeals to me


I have enjoyed having the Queen waving at me for the last year or so
it gives me a boost to see her sensible shoes and solar handbag
especially when the full sun hits her and she starts waving like a mad thing... endlessly funny
but she was looking a tad lonely at times
but now I think she looks very cheery
I think the picorgi completes her


So as I sit at the table and have my afternoon cuppa 
I now get to see the Queen waving like crazy
and the wings on that picorgi going like the clappers
and I feel infused with their combined energy

hoping they infuse you also
happy painting all...xx

This picorgi infuses me with joy, especially when I'm trying to figure out what pigs mean. I have seen pigs everyday since Oct. 2012 and I can't figure out what message they are trying to tell me. When yours popped up, I had to smile since I haven't had a picorgi pop into my life yet. :) The mystery continues and new pigs continue to greet me. Thanks for being the pig of the day. I love it.

I think the queen and the Pink Pig compliment each other, as well as being useful to keep each other company. I'd love to see the wave, it makes me laugh thinking about it.
Love your artistic rendition of both. Happy PPF!

Great fun!

Ha I love the flying pig. I didn't realise until just now that the Queen waved when the sun hit her (d'oh!) She'd not be waving much up here mind you! ! Great paintings of both-your work is always so vibrant. X

Polly Birchall said...

Next time I go for afternoon tea with Her Majesty, I will show her your photograph.... Iam sure she would like a copy of your painting to hang in her bedroom :)

ann @ studiohyde said...

Yay for picorgi :-)

Giggles said...

Whimsy on paper and Tracey in cray mode,
A Queen waving frenzy, with picorgi by her side,
When a pig flies,
in a pink suit with wings
These are a few of my favourite things....

Repeat with the Sounds of Music tune!

Hope you get that without me sounding too cray cray!!!


You are just way too awesome! Love it!!

Hugs Giggles

How sweet, love the heart shaped nose! The queen's one lucky lady, I hope she appreciates her new companion. I've got a pig with wings, but it's made of brass, or something, and weighs about a ton. But it always makes me smile.

Laila said...

This is the second time this week I read about flying pigs. Your post is the crazy one though, and I can't stop laughing.
I do not know you, but I do understand you have your moments of madness. Oh my, have a beautiful weekend woman and don't stop playing!

Linda K said...

teehee! I will be smiling from ear to ear all day about this:)These two do complement each other well-I love how the queen's white gloves match the pig's wings!

Faye said...

Hi Tracey, you have really outdone yourself this week in hilarity! Your solar queen must be a hoot to watch. I love the sketch you did of it and of the pig with wings. Of course, anyone can have corgis. My neighbor has two. Giving her the unique pet is so thoughtful of you!

Arnoldo L. Romero, MLA said...

Your whimsical combination of extreme subjects made me smile. Blessings, my friend!

Sandra Busby said...

Oh I remember that Queen! What funny odds and sods you have in your house!! If anyone had a good nose around I'm sure they would think they had walked in to a mad house!! The flying pig compliments Madge perfectly, lol! :0)

Saskia said...

Great work, so fun! :)


I wish you a happy Paint Party Friday!

Smiles, Saskia :)

Nancy McCarroll said...

So darned cute. I am a true Anglophile, so just am tickled about the queen making you happy too!

Happy PPF!

Irene Rafael said...

I get the piggles lust thinking of the piqueen and picorgi.

JoyCorcoran said...

You've done the queen and the picorgi proud. I always feel healthier after I read your posts -- it's those belly laughs and bright colors. Your illustrations are always amazing.

Neesie said...

Well I'd say that's a hat trick...flying picorgi, solar waving Queenie and tittering tales from Trace!
All beautifully illustrated too. We certainly are lucky recipients indeed.
Your right on form ;D
Enjoy your weekend and Happy PPF to you xoxo
