A Watchful Eye

"A Watchful Eye, #1" by Michael Letzig

The Farm is happily situated in the storied, historic village of Harlem in upper Manhattan.  And like most villages, it is gently governed by a civil servant, otherwise known as the Neighborhood Association President.  Some villages, like Harlem, are so populated, there is a President on every block!  Our Block President is a joyful character known to all folks simply as Jeanie.  Joyful Jeanie is a busy gal always coming & going, yet she makes time to pay a visit to The Urban Art Farm. 

On her last whirl-wind visit, Jeanie was caught by surprise by this friendly foul. And faster than you can say, "Here, chickee-chickee", he was off to keep a watchful eye on her.  Thank you kindly, Jeanie for acquiring this handsome little piece and for being our newest Honorary Art Farmer!

Urban Weathervane

"Urban Weathervane" by Michael Letzig

In a peculiar sort-of-way, I find urban rooftop structures modest, even humble. Though they are perched up high, they are down right friendly. Far above, water towers and the like are scattered all over the city and whenever I gaze upward, I get a little nostalgic for simple country living. To that end, this farmer has been inspired to experiment with some new ideas. Here, is one such endeavor I call "Urban Weathervane". Water towers lie low beneath the behemoth  whimsical whirl-a-gig.  It measures 31" wide x 41" high and is an original painting on loose canvas. It is farm friendly priced at just $300. If you might be interested in having your very own weathervane to watch over you, just blow a whistle!
