COWCENTRIC (40X40, acrylic)
I started this painting last year when I was housesitting in Umecuaro, a tiny ag-town in Michoacan where the cows roam free. I'd walk right up to cows and snap their photos. They didn't care. Easier than lugging home a cow head to paint! The red corn came from a vendor a few blocks from my house who was grilling it, cutting it off the cob and selling it in a cup with cream and cheese. I had a little trouble explaining that I just wanted to buy an ungrilled piece. The word I was looking for was "crudo" (raw).

Here's a photo of the painting with my next door art critic. She loves it!
