On the cover:
"Icelandic Chickens Eating Pumpkin" is an original oil painting on canvas by Medford, Wis., native David Grote.
Grote creates his oil paintings using a style and layering technique that is similar to that of the old European Masters.
Layers of paint and / or glaze are applied over the course of time to create subjects that are positioned to evoke a sense of “introduction.” This method gives his paintings a richness that compares to the complex flavors of fine cuisine.
