Berkswell sheep's milk cheese is hand made at Ram Hall Farm, situated on the edge of Berkswell village, close to Coventry in England. It's shaped like a flying saucer due to the shape of the basket mould in which it is made. It's unusual pointed shape is part of why I chose to paint it. Having a thin wedge though, It seemed most interesting to have it balanced on one of it's rounded sides, standing asymmetrically and creating a diagonal on this small square surface.

Shropshire Blue: Shropshire Blue - made by the Colston Bassett Dairy who are famous for their stilton in the UK. "Shropshire blue has a lovely creamy texture and slightly more mellow flavour than stilton. The orange colour is from the addition of annatto - a natural vegetable dye." It's a beautiful cheese to eat, trust me. The painting is available for sale: http://mikegeno.com/cheese%20album/pages/131_Shropshire_Blue.htm

RED CAT: This delicious raw milk cheese is made by Sue Miller at a Philadelphia area farm. Birchrun Hills Farm makes some incredible cheese (see winter issue of Culture Magazine 2011). The creamy , tangy cheese is a washed rind cheese which adds a lot of salty depth to the entire experience. It was fun to paint, though it started to slump and ooz by the time I finished it. It's such a strong and wonderful flavor that Im hooked.
