The Pig Hip Restaurant, Route 66

8 x 10 oil on 3/8" gessoed high quality panel

The Pig Hip was opened by Ernie Edwards in 1937 in Broadwell, Illinois. Rather than paint the big sign in front of the eatery, I opted to paint this arrangement that I found on the sid of the building, it just spoke of the down home hopitality of this place. I was very fortunate to have been able to visit The Pig Hip, since much of it was lost in a fire a couple of years back.
