Zephyr, original artwork by Mike Geno

From the Cheese Portraits series.

Tucker Family Farm, in Montana was generous to send me a wheel of their "Blue Brie" to help me get that state on my cheesemap! It's a beautiful model which is super creamy-buttery-and delightfully mellow. It is known to be lightly veined with blue but this wheel had just the beginnings of blue spots so I decided to have fun with the wheel itself, rather than just focus on the cheese-paste.

Ive always wanted to paint a cheese wheel like this since the first time I saw Wayne Theibaud's painting titled "cheese slices" from 1986.
