'NOT in the LOUVRE but in the LOO'

One of life’s little miracles happened to create this show, our cottage neighbor sold us this plastic pig for a pack of smoke. Turns our the pig is a DON FEATHERSTONE.

DON FEATHERSTONE created plastic pink flamingoes in 1957. He worked at UNION PLASTICS in FLITCHBURG, Mass. He and his wife dressed alike for 35 years. 
In 1996 he won a NOBEL PRIZE for ART for creating those pop, plastic FLAMINGOES we see on millions of lawns.

CREATIVE juices flowed new show, new ideas, out comes PIG & THE CITY

Out we went to photograph Old Ottawa South using Featherstone’s PIG with PEOPLE&PLACES to produce this new show and soon a new short comedy drama called PIGGIRL

For those who have seen the movie comedy BABE this idea will bring smiles
EVANCHUCK's photos are made marvelous by partner LACELLE using traditional painting techniques combined
with modern computer assistance this enhancement creates what the artists call MARVEOUS REALISM ( think of DALI )
