Title: Beef Stew
Location: Central Market: Weslayan and Westheimer - Inside
Artist: Diana Selby
Sponsor: H-E-B Grocery Company

There is nothing like a Beef Stew, especially a beef stew in bovine form. Beef Stew is a medley of delicious and colorful vegetables floating on a cow painted in a rich brown stew base. There are carrot tops and greenery, along with large onions, green peas, and mushroom slices in this stew. The legs and horns of the cow are carrots and she has green pea eyes. According to the artist, "The combination of flavors and colors is heart-warming and reminds me of my childhood."

Artist Diana Selby has been drawing and painting since she was a little girl. She earned an Art/English education degree from the University of Houston and currently teaches art. She works in colored pencil, watercolor and mixed media and competes in juried shows.

This remarkable statue can now be yours. So, be part of the fun, and help an incredible cause along the way. Proceeds from the auction will benefit the Texas ChildrenÂ’s Hospital Building for Children capital campaign and will help fund the expansion of the Texas ChildrenÂ’s Cancer Center.

This cow was sold in Flight 3 of the internet auction hosted by Amazon.com that ran from December 12 - 18, 2001.
