Last June I spent a week in Illinois living with a farm family as part of The Fields Project artist residency.
During the week I visited different farms and made lots of photographs, including pictures of the three-Cs: cows, chickens, and corn.
One of my favorite photos from the residency was of a cow named Jazz. She was quite curious about me and what I was doing when I was photographing her.
A few months after I got home, I decided to use that photo of Jazz as part of a mixed-media piece. Titled "All That Jazz," the piece was included in the monthly show at the co-op gallery I was a member of, and it sold almost immediately, but not before I received a commissioned to make another, similar one.
I'm excited about having the chance to work with Jazz again. I really enjoy her company.
