A message from the artist,,,,
"A series of paintings were initially inspired by the beauty and diversity of the produce at the 116th street Columbia University Farmers Market (a block away from the SoHa location of Arts and Crafts Beer Parlor).
Then, I introduced myself to the farmers who sold cattle products, and took trips to the farms, taking photographs of the cattle (always being mindful of the ever present cow pies) to paint back in the studio. First came the "head shots" and full length portraits, then the "Whimsical Cows in a Restaurant" series."
