Artichokes

Artichokes
Mixed Media on linen canvas panel

The artichoke is such a popular subject that I had to take a look online at what other artists have done with this veggie. I went to several art poster sites and found a lot of interesting paintings. Not one of them looks a bit like this. Shocking I know.

I used everything in my arsenal (OK not oil paints...) including gold ink. Somebody stop me!

Here is a great post to read on the subject fear of rejection.

  4. I'm going to say the same thing as Suze, it's a lot like your quilting style - vibrant, colourful and fun! It's interesting and to watch your different styles and versitility shine through!
