This picture was inspired by a scene from the film, Notting Hill where William Thacker, played by Hugh Grant was surrounded by a close circle of faithful friends and family. All were quite different from one another but totally interdependent. A special bond held them together through thick and thin forever. They could be your friends, mine or any viewer's friends. We can all relate to the scene and replace each of the characters with people we know. One thing is sure - they are all happy and comfortable in each others' company.
They are all true friends.

On this piece I have made use of bright, light colour to accentuate the uniqueness of each character. Light is reflected from one direction, so each pig is lit differently.

Both pieces have been under painted in acrylics and finished in oils onto deep edged box canvases.

A.J. Callan
HISTORY & BACKGROUND

"Born in Glasgow in 1958, my childhood was surrounded by the new confidence and optimism of 60s Britain. Carnaby Street, the Beatles and jobs for everyone! I was constantly exposed to new ideas, sounds and fashions. Everyone was encouraged to let their imagination run free. From a young age I immersed myself in art.Many years working on commercial material did not erode my passion for fine art.

In every day situations I tend to take mental snapshots of inanimate and animate subjects. It might be a knowing glance between two people or a reaction to a surprise. I have frequent brainstorming sessions, often with a glass of red wine in my hand it is amazing how many of these snapshots then resurface for use in my sketches! My work combines the real and the imaginary and this is reflected in the finished pieces. My early inspirations are wide and varied, from seeing the Yellow Submarine animation as a child, to reading about Leonardo Da Vinci at school."
