Papillon Roquefort 2 cheese protrait painting by Mike Geno

Roquefort is a world-famous blue cheese, considered royalty in the cheese world. This black foil wrapped sheeps milk cheese always makes for a great model. I love the foil and the flavor - what can I say? I painted this one in a sea-like world that's both warm and cool, and bright as the taste - I thought it'd be a nice change from previously dark/serious spaces it usually resides here. This cheese is full of life!
