American Pumpernickel

oil on wood, 12x12"

American Pumpernickel, original artwork by Mike Geno

From the Bread series.

Chris DiPiazza has a local Micro-Bakery called Mighty Bread Co. that makes incredible naturally leavened breads. He was generous to offer me such a good model that would hold up in the current heat we are experiencing this week in Philly. I loved painting this loaf!

His description: "It's mostly whole grain, with rye, and whole wheat and it has buttermilk and molasses to soften and give it nice acidity , but it's more of an "American Pumpernickel than a traditional German"
