Still Life an Artichoke, A is for Artichoke, by Canadian Artist Kim Blair

A is for Artichoke
9x12 oil on canvas

This painting is from a previous posting, but I thought it needed to be seen again.   An artichoke is an interesting vegetable.  Whether you enjoy one cooked, then eaten leaf by leaf with butter, or made into a dip and enjoyed with other veggies, you can't beat its rich, delicious texture.  A real party pleaser, with a touch of elegance.
I liked the way this artichoke is propped against a strong red fabric backdrop with its head resting on the stripes... showing it is comfortable in any setting... elegant or everyday, kind of like Denby China!
