It comes from the guys at Firefly Farms in Maryland. Prints available at :http://mikegeno.com/catalog/print_pages/cheese/Merry_Goat_Round_matted_PRINT.htm #cheeseart #cheese #art #foodart
"Eidolon" - #cheeseportrait painting: This is a cow milk, bloomy-rind cheese from Martha's Vineyard, created at The Grey Barn Farm. This beautiful wheel was passed on to me from Madame Fromage, she's such a great friend! I was immediately struck by how tall the wheel was and alluringly cake-like. It became a Wayne Thiebaud homage from the moment I saw it. #cheeseart #cheese #art #painting #cheesepainting #foodart
"Off Kilter" This is "a beer-washed beauty", according to the cheesemaker, Dylan Stanfield who sent this to me from Mt Townsend Creamery in WA. Available for sale at: mikegeno.com #cheese #CheesePortrait #cheeseart #cheesepainting #foodart #foodpainting #OffKilter #artisanalcheese
WINNIMERE. I somehow (ha ha) convinced myself to paint this adictive creamy cheese again. I would probably testify under oath that it was because I still needed to depict that creamy ooz more convincingly. However, I'm not sure what jury would believe me if they tasted it themselves.
This wonderfully flavorful blue-veined cheddar is made in Wisconsin by Roelli Cheese. Made more like a cheddar, "Dunbarton Blue" has a minimal bluing which seems to compliment the indulgent cheddar rather than compete with it. You can taste the earth and age in its body while, for me, being rewarded with the most gratifying mouthfeel that reminds me of wax that's just been melted and not completely firmed up after it begins to cool.

"Blow Horn" a #cheeseportrait of a local Philadelphia area #cheese by the folks at Doe Run Farm. It's a beautiful rinded cheese and so damn delicious.
