Cheese Portrait Blow HornMike Geno Studio
This is a beautiful dense firm cheese with an incredibly alluring rind. The folks at Doe Run Farm, just outside of Philadelphia, handed me this small wheel a week or so ago, I had a lot of paintings ahead of this. When I finally unwrapped it, I was so blown away by the crazy sexy rind pattern, I had to make the painting all about it. So this small cheese portrait is filled mostly with the rind as the star.
Here's some info that they offered me when I posted it on instagram: Blow Horn is our one-of-a-kind cheese sold at 1 month to 3-4 months. This is our take on Tomme de Tarentaise made with our jersey cow's milk and with a lovely salt content. Lactic, aged, rustic, a nice mineral note, just simply amazing. A barrel of fun that is aged in two different caves on the farm."
