I want to share with curious onlookers what city life is like through the eyes of an artist with deep rural roots. Here, I'll post pictures from The Urban Art Farm (the studio) to show ongoing projects and ideas I'm tinkering with. Local events, high brow and low, are featured. Pull up a chair, a bean bag, a pet, whatever offers you cozy comfort and enjoy the Urban Art Farm!

"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!
