This is my latest painting. I had the idea of titling it Little Green because I was listening to Joni Mitchell while painting it, but the name seemed perfect because the painting arises out of my love for sustainable, local farming. The more I learn about the practices of big meat factories, the more dedicated I become to the “localvore” movement.
Sea Breeze Farm is one place that does meat production right. The farm is on Vashon Island, WA. Their animals are free-range, their fields are gentle on the environment, and their people are friendly and full of life. I wish there were more places like this to make it easy to eat delicious food that does not put one in a moral dilemma. I sent this painting to their restaurant, La Boucherie, this week as a piece of fan art. I know I’m a geek, but I wouldn’t have it any other way.
