oil on wood, 8x8"

Paneer, original artwork by Mike Geno

This was an unexpected commission subject. This patron specifically wanted a cheese portrait that represented their favorite meal, "Saag Paneer"; painting of the cheese rather than the dish. Naturally I had to make the background color spinach green.

I found some Paneer at new local favorite restaurant in my neighborhood, Tandoor, and they were extremely nice to sell me some from their kitchen. I decided to make it a bit more appetizing by cooking it some, creating some nice glowing colors while offering some alternative shaped results more reminiscent of the way one sees it served.
