I really enjoyed painting this new work of three artichokes in three stages of growth as seen in an urban food forest. It’s my first return to acrylics on canvas in 4 years, and — as seems to happen so often when I switch mediums — the change causes some unexpected and delightful creative things to occur. I’m quite pleased with the result. 🙂
This painting will be part of my work at the one-night-only 4th Annual GROW Forth! art show benefiting Urban Patchwork Neighborhood Farms here in Austin, happening this Saturday.
More info on the show is available on the Facebook Event page. I will be showing with five other Austin artists: metal sculptor Anne Woods, photographer and painter Ann Woodall, painter Pat Strong, ceramic artist Michael Merritt, and mixed media artist Stephanie Rubiano. Come join us!
