Georgia on My Mind depicts a Gary Larsen cow sitting at an art furniture table in a Southwestern style home with a postmodern checkered floor.  The cactus posing as an art critic is serving up the news that skulls are a popular design element.  The cow representing the gullible public is pondering the advice. It is a commentary on the nature of man to follow all that is popular and trendy.  "Georgia" refers to Georgia O'Keeffe a painter who helped popularize the Southwestern style.  This piece is now in the collection of the Oakland Museum, Oakland, CA.
